FOOTBALL: Breakers ride wave of momentum in Under-16s

FOOTBALL: To say the Yamba Breakers are ready to defend their Under 15/16s title tonight at Angourie is an understatement.

In his first year as a fully fledged club coach, Harry Menzies has got his side firing this season.

The Breakers finished the regular season undefeated and with an incredible for and against goal ratio of 121-3, the side has been dominant this year.

But if there is a team who have shown their wares against the Breakers this season it is grand final opponents Grafton United Lights.

Grafton United are the only team to keep the Breakers scoreless in a match this season in their first round 0-0 draw.

Up against a strong defensive side like Grafton United, Menzies has warned his troops this week that they cannot get complacent in tonight's decider.

Most of the side were in last year's premiership winning team so they know what it takes to win the big dance.

"We just try and go out there and play our own game," Menzies said.

"I think our biggest problem will be our own complacency.

"We can come into this on the back of 18 wins in a row but if we lose this that all counts for nothing," Menzies said.

Breakers striker Nathan Hollis is well on his way to winning the Under 15/16s golden boot award after finishing 79 chances in front of goal this season.

But Grafton United have finals experience under their belt and should pounce if an opportunity arises.

Kick off will be at 6.30pm at the Angourie Sports Field.
