The Apex Byron Bay Rams collected good wins beating the Bluedogs reserve grade 3–0, and 4–o in the premier division on the weekend.

The top game was closely  fought and locked at 0–0 for much of the opening session.

With only minutes remaining in the first half Jonathan Pierce made no mistake with a penalty kick and the Rams went to the break with a 1–0 advantage

The second half saw Bangalow attacking from the whistle but sound defence from James Tomlinson and Simon McCarthy kept the Bluedogs at bay. As the second half battle wore on, the Rams began to take the upper hand.

Jono Pierce finally broke through the Bangalow defence to make it 2–0. Soon after, Pierce again lobbed a ball over the Bangalow goalkeeper to complete his hat-trick and give the Rams a 3–0 lead.

With seconds remaining, Matteo Ribechini iced the cake, making it 4–0.

After a few tough weeks, it was a welcome return to form for the Rams. 

This week the Rams play Lennox Head Sharks at the Rec Grounds from 12.30pm.
