Northern Beaches are the real deal
FOR the second week running Northern Beaches Seahorses showed they are a real premiership contenders in Men’s Division 1 when they played against the Southside Villains.
The Seahorses came from 2-0 behind at half time to hit the lead 3-2 in the second half, only to surrender the lead in the last five minutes of play to have the scores locked at 3-all with seconds on the clock.
A late flurry in the goal circle by Villains saw a penalty stroke awarded as the full time hooter sounded.
The Villains Grant Howard stepped up to take the stroke and win the game only to push it wide.
Adam Addison ran riot on the left side of the field scoring two goals and setting up the third in a man-of-the-match performance.
He was well supported by a young and enthusiastic team who, without star goal keeper Darren Wallington, outpointed Southside.
In the other Men’s Division 1 clash Urunga Thunda looked like causing a boilover without key players Riley Connor and Dave Dedman when they held Southside Heroes in the first half.
Heroes poured on the pressure and with two goals each to Dean Herbert and Chris Shipman they ran away with a 4-0 win to remain on the top of the ladder after three rounds.
Today at 6.15pm the Southside Heroes will clash with Southside Villains. Heroes will be far too strong.
At 7.30pm Northern Beaches will be expected to win against Urunga who may lack on the field but are number one in the after-game activities.
