Heat on at Urunga as Raiders and Bombers collide
TEMPERS frayed when Urunga and Boambee met in a heated clash at the Cabbage Patch that will have an aftermath in the judiciary.
The Raiders maintained their unbeaten record with a 4-2 win over the Bombers but the match became highly physical in the closing stages.
While there was no red card issued, a clutch of yellows were handed around.
However, it's been alleged one player had a few words with the referee after full time and away from the pitch, resulting in a "dismissal" that will be addressed at a date and time to be determined.
Ironically, the incident could not have had worse timing with North Coast Football due in three days to start the Thanks Ref Weekend, including Silent Saturday.
Tonight, Orara Valley and Coffs United will complete the round with their delayed night meeting at Upper Orara.
Meanwhile, the five-way battle in women's premier league took another twist with second-placed Urunga upset 1-0 by Grafton United.
With rapidly-improving Woolgoolga also enjoying a big win, it leaves three teams equal third.
This weekend the Wildcats host the Raiders at Clive Joass Memorial Park.
