Sometimes you’ve just got to laugh

I confess to having no clinical or medical training, but my reading of some of the literature increasingly tells me that laughter, and the hormones that trigger it, is a powerful healing and comforting tool that serves to help us cope with stress, anxiety, trauma and the challenges associated with living and navigating modern life. 

Shores United first division are heading to the grandfinal at Cozier Oval in Lismore this Saturday.

Shores United thirds lost a fantastic grandfinal on Saturday afternoon to rivals Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley, but are looking to go one better in sixth and first grade after they played their way into grandfinals this weekend.

The Shores thirds were down 2–0 after five minutes but, after Dan belted in a second half equaliser, Mullum looked to be in real trouble. Simon could have clinched it for Shores late on, with only the keeper to beat, but in a cruel twist of fate, his knee collapsed just as he was about to shoot.

Shores played much of extra time with just nine men after send-offs, but the deadlock couldn’t be broken. Mullum went on to win the shootout.

But the old boys in Shores’ sixth grade had the measure of Kyogle and goals from Ben, Godbee and another Ozzie special, sent the Turkeys packing 3–1. The sixths now face the red-hot Rovers in the grandfinal next Saturday, in a chance to win back-to-back grandfinals.

The Shores United first-division Brown Snakes also booked their place in the grandfinal after a nail-biting 1–0 victory over Tintenbar playing away from home.

In a howling gale, neither team was able to generate too many chances, but Matt chased down a long second-half ball and was able to get to it before the keeper and just side-foot it home. In the final half-hour, Tintenbar threw everything at the Snakes but to no avail and they lost 1–0

The Snakes take on minor premiers Ballina in the grandfinal.

All the action at Crozier Oval in Lismore from 11am this Saturday September 22 Both grand finals are at Crozier Oval Lismore, at 11am and 1pm.
