THREE North Coast Football teams remain alive after the second round of the NNSW State Cup on the weekend.
Urunga, Coffs United and Boambee completed strong pre-seasons by advance to the third round of the knockout competition.
Defending champion Urunga went through to the next stage on Saturday with a 3-0 home victory over Northern Storm, bringing a dream scenario of another crack at the big time closer to reality.
The Raiders went two goals up in the first half and put one more away in the second
In the curtain raiser, Lismore Workers came from behind to down Tamworth FC 3-1.
On Sunday, Coffs United started the triple-header program at Ayreshire Park by running into a tough Westlawn Tigers who kept the perennial champions to 0-0 by intermission.
Two quick goals after the resumption turned the tide for the Lions and they held that margin until the end of proceedings.
There was a slight hiccup when Casino Cobras forfeited to Macleay Valley Rangers, delaying the start of the main event between Boambee and Sawtell.
But that only made Bombers' fans hungrier for action and their thirst was slaked with the team's first goal coming in the 53rd second of the first half.
Boambee went on to win 5-1 with the Scorpions only getting on the score board late in the afternoon.
