Winsto had a 1-0 win over Guildford, but it should have been at least 3 or 4.. Game played in great spirits on a nice field at Ron Mondy.. Was also great to have an official and 2 AR's that did a great job..

Toongabbie 3 - Guildford 2. Toonie started with 10 players & Guildford 9. Toonie were up 2-0 after about 10mins. Guildford then had 4 players turn up. Toonie managed a third goal with a player down. Guildford scored with about 10 mins to go in the first half.
Guildford scored again after about 15 mins in the second half when Toonie went down to 9 players after an injury. The bus got parked and we somehow got home, even being 2 players down & Guildford having subs. It was an enormous effort, especially considering 3 of those 9 were carrying injuries.
Guildford were a great bunch of blokes and played the game in the right spirit.
Much better display this week, 3-0 at the break (1 was a penalty), Rouse hill came back strong in the 2nd, got 1 with about 10 to play and we managed to hold on..
It was a huge relief to see an official ref rock up with 1 minute to go before the start, I know our bloke who was going to ref was ecstatic.. Thanks also to the AR from Rouse hill for helping out, both did a great job.. Rouse Hill were a great bunch of blokes, with an impressive Marquee setup as well.. We need to lift our game...

Toonie 1 - Wenty 1. A good hard fought match. Toonie scored at about the 15 min mark. Wenty's goal was lucky, we were working the ball out of our own quarter when a nice ball to one of our mids was intercepted by the ref stepping in front, the ball then heading back towards our goal into the path of a Wenty player who took off towards our goal, but was brought down inside the penalty area. The player easily slotted the penalty away.
Plenty of attacking raids, mainly from the Wenty boys, but we held out and a draw was probably a good result. Our keeper made a few cracking saves & kept us in the game. It was good to have an official ref who didn't take any crap all game. 2 official linesman also did a good job. Surprised Wenty haven't got more points then they have.
