The Byron Bay High School U/15s team has won through to the final 16 of the 2019 Bill Turner Cup.

Byron Bay U/15 have won their clash with Armidale 2–0 in the Bill Turner knockout competition and will head to Newcastle next week for the quarterfinals.

Despite coming up against an aggressive side that looked to bully Byron, the visitors were able to hold their resolves and capitalise on the ensuing cards that were handed out.

The goal scoring was opened by Hani Addis, who fired in a ‘delicious’ free kick from 20 metres out, coach Harley Schmidt said.

‘The back four of Aaron Spry, Jack Wilson, Lewis Flitney, and Andy Wise were calm and controlled the match for the Byron team. The skill and control of Jackson Tuckett and Rufus Scott also allowed the Byron forwards to put the Armidale defence on the back foot. 

‘A second foul by the Armidale defender gave Hani another penalty, this time from 25m on a 45-degree angle, which he again delicately placed in the back of the net,’ he said.

Armidale had their chances in the second half, including a penalty kick, but they failed to convert these. 

The team travels to Newcastle next Tuesday where they face MacKillop College from Port Macquarie. If they win this they have to back up the next day and play for a place in the final four.
