Northern Storm vs. Coffs United

Sunday 29/6/2014
A tough game for the Storm today playing the top team in the competition Coffs United. The boys knew if they could win or even draw the game it would be a great moral boost for the team. The first half became a hard slog for both teams with attack and counter attack from both teams. The first goal was scored by Coffs in the 30th minute by John Omtha. Our boys came back hard playing some great football with Brendon Myers heading one in the net from a corner which was disallowed due to a push in the back. The half time score was Coffs United one goal Northern Storm nil.

The second half began with the Storm really stepping up the heat on Coffs with all facets of the game being used to our advantage. Our defence was outstanding our mid field play and attack players were on top of Coffs and in the 17th minute a goal from Brendon Myers levelled the score. Well done Brendon you had a great game mate. Full time scores one goal each. The 1 point for the draw we will take with pride because it’s no easy task beating Coffs. I believe we were the better team today and can’t wait to play them again in the finals. Our man of the match today was extremely hard to pick with our team playing so well however the goal keeper Jordan Andrews with some great saves and never give up attitude gets it this week well done Jordy keep it up buddy. Thanks to Coffs United for a great game. Thanks to our boys for the belief that we can go all the way in this competition.
