A great weekend for the under 15s. Photo Tammie McCulloch

This weekend saw another bag of mixed results for Shores United in the semifinals, but the day really belonged to those wonderful U15s Shores boys. 

In 1st division and the semifinals for the first time, the kids had already sent Rovers packing the previous week. Away to Thistles was going to prove a very difficult task indeed.

Right from the opening whistle both teams put it to each other.  

Shores put everyone behind the ball and with Marley and Caleb shutting down everything up the back, Thistles had no way through. Despite being bumped around the park, a gutsy Wilkes break through the middle saw him finish well and Shores went up 1–0. 

The second half saw Ollie chip the keeper a beauty, and it appeared Shores had done enough. Thistles never gave up and with 13 minutes to go Shores were down to 10 men after a hand ball in the box. Thistles made no mistake with the penalty, still the final result saw Shores victorious 2–1. Now it’s grandfinal time for them. 

The men’s thirds in front of a big crowd saw Ben’s boys really stick it to rivals, Pottsville. 

The 1st division Brown Snakes suffered 2–1 loss to Tintenbar, while the old boys in 6th grade were stunned 3–2 by Kyogle, at home. Both teams did enough to win but three missed chances off the post and a cross bar, finally put paid to the old boys run of seven unbeaten matches. Both teams live again and are at home next week in do-or-die semifinal matches.
