On a cold windy morning in Kiama Jordan Errington bagged four goals, two in each half. Unfortunately the best of his goals was disallowed for an offside decision that highlighted the inexperience of the match officials. Kiama made a game of it by pulling one back from a corner straight after HT. That goal also left our keeper Ethan Johnson injured and once again Brody Armour went between the sticks.
Our defenders Tom Curran, Baxter Bowler Prentice and Clayton Walker led by Jack Donnelly did an excellent job protecting the stand in keeper. Despite Kiama’s best efforts our defence prevented them from getting another shot at goal and it was left to Jordan Errington to settle the game and secure the points.
It was a long way short of our best passing performance of the season but you have to give credit to Kiama for their perseverance, plus the windy conditions weren’t exactly conducive to fluent football. From a coaching perspective I believe it’s the sign of a good team that even when they don’t play at their best, can still find a way to win.
- I believe there is going to be a reshuffle of teams in Division II which may involve Thirroul and Balgownie joining Russell Vale in Division III. Once it is confirmed and the IJFA produce a new fixture list I will let you all know.
