Ermo 2 Auburn1 What a game - we dominated the first 20 mins scoring a goal early and having one disallowed, then the whole game changed with one of our players given a straight red - no argument, well deserved, so we had to play the rest of the game with 10 players and it really opened up from end to end. Auburn received a penalty for accidental handball - it was against me and no complaints 😡. With 10mins to go we scored to make it 2-1, a very enjoyable game and a very good ref. We only had 13 today with a couple of injuries as 3 of our players thought it had been called off !!!!! TheAxe
Another tough match today on a surprisingly good pitch at Guildford West Sportsground against Greys White who always give us a hard time ,we didn't convert an early penalty but 10 minutes later after some pinball in the box we poked one home for the only score of the match. We kept pressing throughout hitting the crossbar with a close in header midway through the second half but Greystanes defended strongly and kept us out, good hard game and well refereed by the official ,we now look forward to next weeks big game v Greys Black should be standing room only at Bathurst St so get your tickets early Lol

Greystanes Black 3 Holroyd Black 1
It was a case of The Empire strikes back today at a windy Bathurst St Park, we started well and took the lead scoring direct from a corner it was fairly even throughout the rest of the half and we led 1-0 at the break, the second half Greystanes pressed hard and 10 mins in a seemingly innocuous through ball slipped by everyone and rolled in , the Blacks then had a good spell adding another 2 goals in the next 10 mins to seal the win, a good hard game well refereed by the official ,congrats to Greystanes who deserved their victory today but we hope to have another crack at you come semi final time.

Greystanes White 0 Pendo 2. The wind played its part in today’s game as did the bounce on a limited grass field. Pendo took their chances and probably should have had a couple more. Game was played in good spirits.
Realise that we live in the real world, not an ideal one.

Holroyd Black 1 Auburn 1
It was a lovely day for football at Guildford West Sportsground today and as the score suggests this was a fairly even game ,we hit the cross bar twice in the first half but it was 0-0 at halftime , we opened up strongly in the second half and took the lead 10 minutes in but after spurning a few more chances Auburn had a good spell and equalised with 15 minutes left ,it was end to end till fulltime with both teams looking for the win but it was not to be. The game was played in good spirits but very competitively well done Auburn you are a quality team.

Pendo 2 Parramatta City 1. Played in good spirits. A friendly game with Pendo on top most of the time. They just couldn’t put the ball away. Played much better in the second half and put a good goal away and had a penalty given from an unfortunate handball. Still a penalty but unlucky for Parramatta City. Pendo leaked a goal right on full time with som slack defending and not coming back.

Took myself off to a cool Bathurst St Park tonight to watch the rescheduled Greys derby. Greys black started very strongly and took an early lead. A second goal soon arrived from a very nice strike from the midfielder. Half time came and the score line had was 5-0.
Huge credit to the Greys whites who regrouped after the break and put up a much better fight. No goals in the 2nd half and hand shakes all round after the game. A solid first half from the Greys Black was enough to get the 3 points.
Game was played in very good spirits and well done to both sides and the match officials.

Bathurst St Greystanes Black vs Pendo saw Pendo struggle to field a team. They resembled a 1982 Datsun 180B, reliable but very beat up! It was a real struggle for them with injuries that saw them put their handy midfielder between the posts. Being vertically challenged was no issue as he ripped off two pearlers in the first half denying quality chances for Greys. Scoreline 1-0 at halftime. second half Greys pressed and were rewarded with 3 more goals. Funny stuff when Greys defender managed to tackle himself, not to be outdone a second Greys defender followed suit, had both teams in stitches and yours truely crying. Ref was good and the touch ladies did a great job too! Pendo needs some younger bodies.

Axe todays game was one to forget for us, after the unlucky early penalty we controlled the entire game and as Old Ref stated the Dundas player scored a speculator on a break away from an angle 30m out , the Dundas boys then parked the bus and defended well for the rest of the contest rarely crossing the halfway line, all in all a very frustrating day for us but congrats to Dundas on the win.
First time this year we are looking at having the strongest squad with all the marquee players available- including the North Rock boys that have joined us Pendo v Ermington (sold out) 😁 Predictions Ermo 1 Pendo 0 Holroyd B 3 Holroyd W 1 (Black to bounce back after horror 3 weeks) Grey B 2 Auburn 2 - Match of the round
