The Shores United Soccer Club is having its best-ever year with three men’s teams ready to contest grandfinals this weekend.

The first division Brown Snakes and fourth division Red Backs joined previously qualified seventh division with wins over the weekend.

On Friday night the Snakes played away to Ballina and won 2–0.

Both teams had a few chances each early on, until a rampaging Paddy put Shores 1–0 ahead at the break.

The second half began much the same as the first; soon the sheer pace and determination of the Snakes began to wear down the big Ballina boys.

A brilliant ball to Adam Budd let him seal the deal and put Shores into the grandfinal.

On Saturday Shores fourths faced Goonellabah and ran out 6–0 winners.

The Redbacks came out on fire from the opening whistle and Goonellabah were simply blown off the park.

A mesmerising four goals to Bruno underpinned a great team effort.

This weekend Sevenths play Ballina (Sat 12pm, Dunoon), fourths play Mullumbimby Brunswick (Fri 5.45pm, Dunoon) and firsts play South Lismore (Sat 1pm, Lismore).
