Drifta 16's secure win over Tuncurry Gold

Drifta started out strong with great ball control, keeping possession with numerous quality passes against Tuncurry Gold at Tuncurry on Saturday, June 22. Cody Howard soon wore out Tuncurry's left fullback with countless runs to the corner with excellent crosses. Kelly Groves, Aiden Hawkins and Jackson Scanlon were working hard in the midfield pushing the ball forward into the flanks, which provided Gloucester with a corner kick. With the wind at their backs, Cody performed a set play with Kelly at the near post to offload it back to Cody who nailed a screamer from the corner of the 18 yard box.

Drifta went into half time with a 1-0 lead, but knew that they had to perform well going into the wind for the second half. Drifta's defensive line worked hard with Isaac Earle Broadley coming out of goals, converting some defensive moves into attacking plays. Drifta came up with another superb goal by Cody Howard slotting his second goal for the day into the back of the net, bringing the full time score to 2-0. Drifta are at their home ground this Saturday, June 29, battling it out with second placed Wingham Warriors at 11.20am.

Soldiers Club provided the crowd with some outstanding ball control in the opening minutes, of their game against Tuncurry Tigers on Saturday at Wallamba with the midfield play of Frank Ostlund, Darren Royce, Geoff Hawkins and Lukas Delsperger working well to control the game. Owen Tomlinson and Harry Clarke proved to be a handful with some great attacking runs up front. Halfway through the first half Lukas Delsperger found himself on the 18 yard line and slotted one into the back of the net with his left foot, giving Soldiers Club a 1-0 lead at half time.

The second half Soldiers Club started strong again, with the defensive line of Andrew Hughes, Caleb Walker, Sam Mundy and Dylan Schultz working well together. Unfortunately midway through the second half Tuncurry were able to get one in the net to provide an equaliser, but with just minutes to go before full time, Tuncurry snuck one down the left hand side of the park to take a 2-1 lead until full time.
