und 6–1 flogging to the Seahorses with six different goal scorers a testament to Byron’s free-flowing and attacking style of play.

Conor Cannon, Tane Meek, Steve Kirkpatrick, Brad Jones and Cory Goldstone all found the net and a shot from Emanuele Altarvi bounced in off the keeper.

The Reserves, rattled by an early Casino goal, remained one down for most of the match and an upset was on the cards. In the final quarter, a cross from Jono Pierce to the head of Tai Flanagan put the Rams back in the game and as the Byron boys pressed the Casino goal in the dying minutes, Pierce fired of a shot that sealed a 2–1 win and preserved the Reserves championship hopes.

This weekend – Splendour weekend – sees a pause in the Senior competition with all teams retuning to the fray the following weekend.

Junior matches will be played this weekend as usual.
