Glee takes to water with ease
Her recent participation in the Australian Surf Life Saving titles in Western Australia prepared Glees Kim Chappell perfectly for last weekends rain- sodden encounter against Northern Star. Chappell scored twice as the green submarine cruised to a 5-0 win over a depleted Northern Star.
Glees Nicole Danvers, Cassie Douglas and Nicole Munns also found the back of net.
Amanda Moss and Sally Baldry continued to shine for Ballina in their 3-0 win over Alstonville. Moss, Tina Welch and Grace Hunter did the scoring. Melissa Burt, Sarah Lidbetter and keeper Tamara Leonard defended stoutly for the redsoilers, particularly in the second half, but by then Ballina had secured the win.
The rain also helped out Coraki, with David Browns regular soccer game being washed out, so that the former A grade hockey player was available to play hockey instead. Brown scored two of the Navy Blues three goals as they overran Easts 3-0. Veteran centre forward Jason Conte scored the other.
Suggestions Coraki were going to struggle in A grade this year have obviously been misplaced. The men from the meeting of the rivers have won two and drawn one of their first three games.
At the beginning of the other match between Ballina and Northern Star the rain was so heavy that the game was called off.
