The Byron Bay Rams Reserves scored another convincing 5–0 win last Wednesday night in Alstonville, while the Byron Bay Services Club Prems came away with another disappointing result, losing 5–2.

Saturday’s round seven saw the Reserves continue their winning ways with a 4–0 win over Ballina, while the Premier boys also enjoyed a welcome return to form with an emphatic 4–0 victory over last-placed Ballina.

Ballina got points on the board early with a quick counterattack but a superbly executed free kick from young Zac Miletic at the 30-minute mark dipped under the bar to equalise.

Ten minutes further in, newly signed striker Diego Vázquez blasted a cross into the box to Lisandro Luaces whose flying volley hammered the ball into the Ballina net to give the Rams a 2–1 lead into the break.

Ballina fought hard to get back in the game but a Byron free kick early in the second half pinballed around the Ballina box only to be finished with a power drive from Luaces.

Late in the match, veteran Ram Jono Pierce came off  the bench to finish a cross from Jack Martin with a spectacular slide into the Ballina goal.

The Rams put on an entertaining display of quality football against a determined Ballina outfit.

The win gives the Rams some much-needed points – and a confidence boost – going into Round 8 against Villa, in Alstonville on Saturday. Reserves kick off at 1pm and the Prems at 3.
