Shores United first and third division teams lost on the weekend but have an upcoming chance of redemption, while the U/15s will play for a place in the final this weekend.

The Shores U/15 first division side have never been in a semifinal and have not beaten the Lismore Rovers all season. But that all changed on Saturday when they earned 3–1 victory that sees them through to the major semifinal this weekend.

The first division Brown Snakes went down 1–0 to the Italo Stars and will need to find a way to score goals in their upcoming semifinal against Tintenbar.

Shores third division travelled to Byron Bay and came away second best in a penalty shootout after the fulltime scores was locked at 3–3. 

The Shores sixth division took on Woodburn at home and provided a fitting send- off to club president Marc Patten, who played his last game.

The Shores old boys won 7–1 through a highly organised pass-and-run game.

The club has two home semifinals this weekend!
