The Northern Hotel Rams Reserves reserved their place in next Saturday’s Football Far North Coast Grand Finals with a thumping 4-0 win over Lismore Thistles at the Rec Grounds on the weekend.

Despite completely outclassing the young Lismore crew from the opening whistle, it took the Rams until the last minutes of the first half to find the net. After countless runs on the Thistles goal, a neat side foot cross from Herick Schuenemann to WIll Ennis and an unstoppable finish from the Golden Boot finally broke the drought.

Fifteen minutes into the second set, Tomás do Prado Coelho finished a sweet flanking combination with a curling, long range strike into the top right corner to give the Rams a2-0 lead. With 15 to go, Jono Pierce made a flanking run and drove another long ball from out wide that skimmed the inside of the far post, rolled back across goal and  finally turned into the net to make it 3-0. With three minutes on the clock Pierce snapped a cross to his brother Nolan on the penalty spot. Nlan’s shot was deflected by the keeper onto the feet of Sam Owens who buried goal four for the Rams.

The win sends the Reserve Grade Rams into their fifth consecutive Grand Final, joining the Prems and the Byron Second Division in triple header.

With Oakes Oval being renovated, this year’s Grand Finals will be held at Lismore Workers’ Richars Oval – Next door to Lismore Square. The Seconds meet Lennox Head at 11am, the Reserves take on Rovers at 3pm and the Premiers do battle with fiery neighbours Bangalow Bluedogs at 5pm.
