Solid defence from Harto, Glenn, Dan and Theo kept Kyogle scoreless and set up a big win.

The Shores United ANZAC Cup B team got their season off to a great start with a 6–0 win over Kyogle two weeks ago.

After a patchy start the Shores boys quickly gathered the ascendancy and began to dominate playing at home in New Brighton in clear conditions

Shores really controlled the midfield and began to deliver some quality ball forward. Kyogle scrambled well but as the match wore on, big gaps in their defence opened up.

The Shores boys missed a number of chances early on, but when a vintage special from Benny free-curled into the top corner, it was the beginning of the end for Kyogle.

The Shores defence allowed nothing all afternoon while frontman Eli was rampant.

In the end, two goals each from Ben and Eli, one to Louie and a welcome home score from Teddy that raised the roof, served up a cracker start for Shores in the ANZAC Cup opener.

Shores were too good, running out winners 6–0.

There’s still plenty of time to register to play for Shores United in both seniors and  juniors.
