Mullum footballers collect second win of the season
The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC opened the second half of the Far North Coast premier league with a riveting 3–2, home game win over the Lismore Thistles.

The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC opened the second half of the Far North Coast premier league with a riveting 3–2, home game win over the Lismore Thistles.

The crowd were treated to a game that was both entertaining and dramatic and saw German Mtonh open up the MBVFC account with a goal to reward his tireless effort in midfield.

The home team went into the changerooms 1–0 but in the early stages of the second half a scramble in front of a congested goalmouth saw the Thistles seize an opportunity for an equaliser.

Determined to have an impact, and filling in as a centre-forward, Rossco Martin made endless runs into the box and a number of shots on target.

Before long he put the MBVFC in front again with a a
towering looping header over the keeper and into the net.

Thistles responded quickly with another equaliser, a clinical finish into the top corner on a counter attack, setting the game up for a high octane final 20 minutes, as both teams searched for a winner.

But it was the Valleys who prevailed and in great style, when talented young second-grade player Raen Santos, on his second game for the day put on a masterclass of finesse, outplaying the Thistles defense a number of times with turns and side moves, forcing the keeper into some
outstanding saves, before finally beating him with a chested half volley from an almost impossible angle.

Yantra Whitling was awarded Man of The Match for a solid performance in midfield.

MBVFC is ninth on the premiership ladder that is topped by Byron Bay.

The Valleys continue their campaign with a match away to Souths this week.
