Ocean Shores soccer played at home last weekend with less than spectacular results including a narrow 1–0 loss for the U/15s and the three senior teams all having draws. 

The first division Brownsnakes missed a chance to grab top spot in the ladder in a frustrating 2–2 draw against Byron Bay.

Full credit to Byron Bay who stuck with the Snakes and scored the equaliser just seven minutes from time. 

It was almost a carbon copy in sixth grade. The Shores old boys had the better of the second half against Byron and also led 2–1, only to see Byron score another game saving late equaliser. 

Ocean Shores were perhaps a bit lucky in third grade. Tintenbar came ready to play and scored a good goal to go ahead 1–0. Once again, Shores had a better second half and midway were able to equalise.

To be fair, Tintenbar had a number of chances to win and should have, but Shores keeper Dan Holden held them out in a classic display of flawless goal keeping. 

Crowd support on Friday night and Saturday was truly fantastic. It was great to see so many supporting the boys.
