Lions bounce back

COFFS United bounced back from their shock opening round loss with a clinical 6-0 thrashing of 1st Division new boys, Yamba.

Playing their first game at the new home of Maclean Street the Lions made short work of their opponents with pacey midfielders Scott Goddard and Nathan Silvy finding plenty of space to provide opportunities for Anthony Wiseman who was taking more shots than a World War II sniper.

With the result well in hand by half time new coach Danny Milliken took the opportunity to blood some younger players in the second half, a move that has always borne fruit for the Lions over their many years of success.
