So Parra are the ones showing form at this stage of the season and we'll see if that continues this week against Ermo (who will be missing about 5-6 players out of a squad of 18). My predictions are Ermo to hold on for a 2-2 draw against Parra. Winsto will be too strong for Lidcombe and get up 5-1. Auburn and Pendo to fight out a 3-3 draw and Kellys to get a 3-1 win over Wenty.
Winsto 4 - Lidcombe1. Tough game today. Lidcombe stepped up as they always do against us. Some cracking goals particularly the volley from 28 yards off Wilfs quality cross. Welcomed back our stopper who made the difference today!!!!
Ermo 2-2 Parra. Game was abandoned after about 60 minutes following a head clash that split the head open of one of Parras players and an ambulance had to be called. Parra started out well, jumping out to an early 2-0 lead (the 2nd goal looked to be scored from an offside) but Ermo pulled one back before halftime and drew even about 10 minutes after the break. It was unfortunate that the game was called off as Ermo were getting the upper hand but given the circumstances there was no real choice. Our thoughts are with the Parra player and we wish him a speedy recovery (I'm sure he'll be ok with a few stitches)
Predictions for the weekend. I think I have one right for the season but will continue on bravely.
Ermo 3 - Wenty 2. Ermo should be too good in the dreaded lunchtime kickoff. Ville 2 - Auburn 0. Villes young guns with too much running. Lidcombe 1 - Parra 0. Upset of the weekend. Lidcombe showed some positive signs last week and are on the improve Pendo 1 - Winsto 1. Match of the round at Bino where an old rivalry resumes. Pendo to be pumped up at Back to Bino day and Winsto to hang on for a draw with minimal numbers.
Ville 1-0 Auburn. Very tough game, Auburn unlucky not to take something. Not sure why the ref reduced the game to 35 each way, unless he had an appointment. Ville took the points after an Auburn defender heading against the post and Ville tapped in. Ref very officious, game played well by both teams
Cracking game at Binalong where a faulty sprinkler threatened the match before kickoff. We played some of our best football in years and dominated the first half and unlucky to only be up 1-0 at the break. Got another early in the second but to their credit Pendo came back at us and scored. A few injuries to each side showed how hard fought the game was.
Well macduff you were sort of right about our game vs Wenty, there was 5 goals scored....FOR EACH SIDE. A very high scoring 5-5 draw, with some of the goals scored being rather comical. The scoreline ebbed and flowed but a draw was probably a fair result. It was good to have a B & W.
Parra City 6 v Lidcombe 1 Parra started the game with 10, and we were 1 goal dpwn quickly. When we finally got to 11 we got our shape back and began to dominate the game. We were up 3-1 at Half time and by full time made it 6-1. Got to say some cracking goals were scored, long range efforts and one great team goal. Overall one of our better displays so far this season. alidcombe were a good bunch of guys to play, hard tough but fair. Thanks to the young B&W also as well as his 2 ARs.
Auburn 1 winsto 2. Despite some injuries from last weekend we hope to pick up another win. Wenty 5 lidcombe 1. Wenty should be too strong at home. Parra 2 pendo 2. Match of the round. If Pendo play like they did second half last week they could snatch a win Kellyville 4 Ermington 4. Lots of goals now that this is Kellyville's number one team in O35s!!!!!
