First Grade Match Report v OakFlats:

'The colt from 'Old Regret'

Dominated possession, dominated chances, an, incorrectly, disallowed goal, poor officiating but, in the final analysis, when we miss 2 penalties, one right on full time, at 1-1, we can only blame ourselves, Oak Flats had 3 shots in the game compared to our 20! How we contrived to draw 1-1 has haunted me all weekend.

Corrimal or Warilla, given the chances we were, would have beaten OF's by 6. It's fantastic that we play good attacking football and create lots of chances but we, either, need to start converting more of our chances, or we need to recruit a No.9 who can 'stick' the ball in the back of the net.

Our defence was caught out once from a long ball on a bumpy pitch but overall we were in control of the game for long periods.

It was really disappointing to come away with just 1 point when Warilla, Thiroul and Helensburgh, all lost. Corrimal are 7 points clear of us when it should have been 5.

Thirroul will not be as generous, as Oak Flats, so there will be plenty of work to be done this week.  As always our effort was fantastic. We look a fit side with plenty of goal opportunities in us. We've just got to put 'em away more regularly.

All the best, Dan
