Murwillumbah bounce back
MURWILLUMBAH FC are back in the winner's circle after thrashing local rivals Kingscliff 9-0 at Reg Dalton Oval yesterday.
It had been a long time between drinks for the Gold Coast Soccer First Division newcomers who hadn't recorded a favourable result since their opening round triumph over Burleigh Heads in March.
However, goal-scoring doubles to Matt Hill, Lucas Scholes and Darren Reynolds, along with goals from Adrian McDonald and Snow Hale ensured Murwillumbah got their season back on track in style.
“Obviously we're pleased with result but now it's a matter of continuing to play this good brand of football,” Murwillumbah coach Mick McCarthy said.
“There's still some work to do but we're headed in the right direction.”
Tweed Heads' record from their opening six fixtures slumped to three and three after suffering a modest 2-0 defeat away to Runaway Bay on Saturday.
A balanced first half had both sides creating chances, but an own goal 35 minutes in coupled with a soft header on the stroke of half-time proved the Kangaroos undoing.
In other matches, Burleigh Heads were pummelled 5-0 by second-placed Robina City and Griffith Uni went down 3-1 to third-placed United Eagles.
In Premier League, the Tweed Valley Kings were thumped 3-0 by Magic United, Burleigh Heads edged out Surfers Paradise 4-3, Gold Coast Knights held on to beat Southport 2-1, Broadbeach United accounted for Coomera 3-1 and Musgrave hammered Nerang 5-1.
