Shores United prepare for semifinals

Club president Marc Patten gets a shot away in his final game as a player on the weekend.

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!

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
