Byron Bay FC were fourth placed on the Football Far North Coast premiership ladder after a 3-3 draw playing away against Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC in round seven of the competition.

In a faced-pace game Byron Bay FC got the first goal in, but Yantra Whitling equalised in quick response for the home team, according to MBVFC’s Albert Moses.

Byron responded with a second and then again with a stunning 30-yard screamer from outside the box and into the top corner.

The MBVFC came out of the changeroom with renewed determination and fighting until the very end, which saw Taz Saunders score a brace of goals to bring them back to parity, Albert said.

MBVFC captain, Max Bashford, collected the Man of the Match award for an outstanding game in central defence.

In the Champions league the home team broke free from two losses to take a 2-0 win. The results puts them fourth on their ladder.
