Mullumbimby Mudcrabs

D2 lost 3-1 against reigning premiers Waratahs, despite scoring early to take the lead the understrength muddies couldn’t hold them out. Adam Gadowski scored the only goal and received the players player points. Big thanks to Archy, Robbo and Scotty who filled in and also to Gav in goals.

D3 continued their winning way downing Pottsville 3 -1. Dave Robbo, Gav Arthur and Craig Reid each scored brilliant goals with Gav picking up players player for the second week in a row.

Mullumbimby Women

Both our D2 and D3 women played on a lovely wet – and in a couple of different places – submerged grass field in Murwillumbah on Saturday. While enjoying pleasant light showers and fading light, both teams played gallantly, with D2 scoring a win and D3 losing a winnable game at the last minute. D3 played Casuarina and fought hard to keep them out, only to go down 1-2, while D2 fought back against Kingscliff in the second half to come away with a rewarding win at 3-2. Well done to all our women!
