All four Shores United senior teams were engaged in tough contests last weekend with first division the only winners.

The Brown Snakes took on Tintenbar at home and from the opening the sides hammered away at each other.  But when Tintenbar lost their captain the Snakes slowly tightened their grip.

About 20 minutes from time, when it began to feel like Tintenbar might hang on for a point, Muzzy hammered one at the Tintenbar keeper, who spilled the hot shot to the feet of the rampaging veteran Bumpy, who made no mistake with the winner putting Shores ahead 1–0.

The under-strength ladies travelled to play the Lismore Thistles in what was always going to be a tough ask for them with so many injuries. And so they succumbed, but they had plenty of fun.

The fifth division old boys travelled to the Richmond Rovers for a second versus thirds clash.

The Shores boys were behind three times in the physical encounter, but came back each time.

Shores were spurred on by Glen who scored the individual goal of the season, slicing through no less than four defenders, from 60 metres out, to beat the keeper in the corner. In the end only an offside call on Ray’s goal stopped the mighty old boys from stealing the match late. It ended 3–3.

The thirds travelled to Byron for a very frustrating match that saw them throw away many chances, only to see Byron capitalise on theirs. The Byron Rams came away with a 3–0 win.
