Shores United FC began their season in the Anzac Cup B football competition with a 3-1 win over local rivals the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC last Sunday.

Both teams impressed in the early stages of the match, with the action going end-to-end in a fast-paced encounter, with Shores midfielder Bailey Phillips, coming closest, rattling the crossbar after 20 minutes of play.

Shores then began to gain the upper hand, as a brave Mullum began to wilt under their relentless, well organised mid-field pressure.

Thirty minutes in Dean got the first score. Thirteen minutes later Leathy took a sweet pass and raced in to score Shore’s second from a sharp angle.

A sustained fight back from Mullumbimby playing at home, brought them one back, so at the halftime it was 2-1 to Shores.

Shores asserted their authority in the second half against an under strength Mullumbimby, and both teams missed their chances in the late summer heat.

But 15 minutes in, and after more great build up and a stunning 30-metre strike from Shores midfielder Bailey Phillips, Shores went 3-1 up. After a thoroughly entertaining match that was the full-time score.
