Wolves fall to dominant Raiders
URUNGA has cemented its place in the top two after serving Woolgoolga a 9-nil defeat in a clash that had plenty of goals, cards and entertaining football.
Held on perfect conditions at the Cabbage Patch today, the Raiders continued their undefeated run as the squad charges towards finals season.
The Raiders however struggled to get ahead in the first half, and after three disallowed goals from offside, they led the Woolves just 1-nil into the break.
But after regrouping, the home-side squad pulled out the guns as the Wolves succumbed to missed penalties and injuries.
Scoring hat-tricks for the Raiders were Ben Pooley and Fabrice Wamara, while Kale Hopper (2) and Joe Pettit (1) also scored.
"We're happy with the second half, but the first half was pretty ordinary - we weren't playing at 100%," coach Paul Pomroy said.
"We had a chat at half time and the boys responded really well."
Pooley said standout players were Wamara, Pettit and Jake Leslie.
The Raiders will now take on Grafton this Saturday, who are yet to win a game this season.
"We'll be looking to get the points on Saturday - we have Coffs the week after so we want to be building towards the finals," Pooley said.
In the weekend's other results, Northern Storm Thunder took down Grafton United 9-0, Coffs Lions fought off the Tigers 2-nil, Westlawn Tigers fell short of Orara Valley 2-3, and Sawtell handed Maclean a 3-1 defeat.
