Games will be played in the same format as Thursday night’s competition with shortened halves. There will be a round robin competition played on the Saturday with finals on the Sunday. Nominations close on March 6 and cost $150 per team.
This includes all match fees and a BBQ dinner. Nomination forms are available from the canteen or www.graftonsos.org.au.
Winmills Campers finished on top of Old Guns 3-1 in the first game of the night.
The girls in particular dominated the match and showed better fitness. Tamara McSkimming, Stuart Tait, Paul Winmill and J McClymont were the goalscorers.
Happy Campers defeated Grafton Thunder 3-2 but individual player performances dominated the post-atch conversations. S Tapping scored twice for Campers and Sonia in goals for Thunder won the referee’ choice for best on field.
Road Runners and XVII fought out a tight match with a strong wind blowing and only half the field mown.
Teams were evenly matched but XVII were up 2-0 at the break thanks to some great keeping. The Roadies then played much better with the wind to score twice and lock up the match for a draw. M Clark, S Wally and David Groth (2) were the goalscorers.
Summer Sirens had a tight 2-1 victory over Grafton Lightning. Lisa Webber had the goal of the match when her shot hit the keeper, hit a defender, hit an attacker, hit the keeper then hit Lisa before going into the net.
Lesley Taylor played well in goals before then coming on to the field to score the winning goal. Matt Pierce was the other goal scorer.
Grafton PO Rangers defeated Odd Balls 2-1 in a great game. Shorty was playing in defence for Odd Balls but almost scored for the opposition. Patsy Hanna also had a good game with Troy voted best for the Rangers.
The Blues handled the wet pitch much better then Micks Mowing to win 5-1 in a very slow-paced match.
The Blues’ structured play frustrated the grass cutters. R Kearns, Ricky Woelfl (who let him near the goals?), B McConnell, C Limsert, Bob White and Mick McGarvie were the goalscorers.
The match between Saps and Kaos settled down to a better match after the referee changed his shirt and players stopped passing him the ball. Andrew Lothian scored first to give Saps a 1-0 lead at the break.
T Smith got one back after the break but once the Revielle family got a goal each, Saps finished 3-1 ahead.
Black Toyota dominated the scoreboard in their match against Total Graffiti. Vince, Tim Keogh, Craig McDonald and D Towns scored the goals.
Misfits and Poles & Holes finished even on the scoreboard in the late game.
Bam Bam received a player’s award for letting Di beat him regularly.
Nominations are now also be called for the winter competition.
