Northern Beaches miss out on win

IN last week’s men’s division 1 Friday night match, the Northern Beaches side was extremely unlucky not to come away with a win against hot favourites Southside Heroes.

Leading 3-1 with a little over 10 minutes left on the clock, Northern Beaches looked like getting the win.

However, a determined Southside Heroes fought back with two late goals to snatch a 3-all draw.

Northern Beaches may have lacked big name players like their Southside counterparts in Dean Herbert, Chris Shipman and others, but made up for it with great team work and determination.

Standouts for Northern Beaches were Adam Addison, who scored a great first half goal, and their goal keeper Darren Wallington, who saved almost everything hit at him.

Joe Piggott also scored an early goal for Northern Beaches prior to being injured and looks in good early season form.

Southside Heroes standouts were brothers Brendon and Justin Alford and Dean Herbert had his usual high standard of game.

This result shows just show close the men’s division 1 will be this season.
