All four Shores United senior teams were involved in home matches at Shara Boulevard on the weekend but only two emerged victorious.
The fledgling ladies were very much the underdogs against a genuine premier league side, Lennox Head.
The match was a tight affair with the gutsy Shores ladies matching it with Lennox until the visitors scored two second-half goals. It was the end of the Shores Firebirds’ winning streak.
The first division match between the Shores Brownsnakes and Tintenbar was a physical encounter with both teams hammering away. Goals to Fransisco and Milky had the Snakes in front 2–1 at the break.
The second half was a scrappy affair with seven yellow and two red cards issued, six of these to Tintenbar.
In the end a rare beauty from defender O’neal and a superb header from Dan were the difference, Snakes just home 4–3.
The fifths old boys game against the Italo Stars on Saturday was a classic struggle of age and skill against youth and energy. The old boys hung on desperately as the game wore on and the Stars threw everything at them.
The difference was two clinical finishes from Glen and an important goal from super Ray. Shores won 3–2 and go to top of the division.
Next up a top-of-the-table clash as Shores thirds faced Suffolk Park. Nothing could take away from the pure class of Suffolk Park. Good goals from Harry and Glen, but in the end not the team’s best day as there were far too many mistakes. Suffolk Park won 7–2.
