Toonie 1-0 over Auburn. Toonie dominated possession and should have scored a couple more. Nasty shoulder injury to one of the Toonie players. Someone said they thought it may be a dislocation. Hope he is ok.
Toongabbie player definitely has a badly dislocated shoulder. (Fell very ackwardly after a rash shoulder charge). At at 5:40, he was being taken by ambulance to hospital. Congrats to Auburn for their assistance and compassion
As mentioned winsto got up 3-1 in a tough contest.. 1-1 until the last 10, but the pressure finally got to them and we finally took our chances.. Winsto did manage to score all 4 goals though.. Well done to Toonie, good win, should be a good game next week.. All the best to the Toonie player that was injured, hope he is OK from the Winsto boys..
Toonie 3 - 3 Auburn FC AET (Toonie 3-1 on penalties).
An absolute cliff hanger at Robin Thomas today. Toonie the better team in the first half pushing the ball around nicely but unable to convert a few chances. Auburn resorting to long balls to their striker. Halfway into the 2nd half Toonie got the opener and a deserved lead. Auburn lifted their game and began to dominate the midfield and earned a penalty which was well put away after a trip in the box.
With about 15 to go, Toonie midfielder with an absolute cracker from outside the area made it 2-1 which is how it stayed until the last minute of the game. Auburn earned a corner which was not dealt with by Toonie and a close range header took the game into extra time.
First period of extra time saw Auburn take the lead for the first time in the game following a break down the left and a cross that was put into his own net by a Toonie defender. The game ebbed and flowed until the last minute of extra time when a Toonie shot was handled in the box and after consultation with the linesman the referee awarded the penalty. Toonie midfielder stepped up and calmly put it away after which the referee blew full time.
Off to penalties.
Auburn - miss Toonie - score Auburn - score Toonie - miss Auburn - miss Toonie - score Auburn - miss Toonie - score
Toonie keeper the hero saving three penalties.
So off to next week and a grand final against the favourites and most dominant team in the competition this season - Winston Hills. Toonie will be the big underdogs but after today's win will be up for the challenge.

Yep. Winsto too good not only today but all season and deserved their win.
Good bunch who we have enjoyed playing this year.
2 goals each half sealed it. Toonie battled hard all game and had a couple of chances late in the first half including an open goal miss from 6 yards out! If that had gone in maybe it might have put a bit more pressure on Winsto but wasn't to be.
