Pythons give coach headache
SOMEONE grab Joe Scholl some Panadol.
“I've got a headache,” he said.
“Do you want it?
“We couldn't score on Saturday which I was somehow blamed for and then I had four out yesterday which cost us again.”
The besieged Uki Pythons mentor could only watch on as his men first squandered chance after chance against fellow strugglers Casino and District on Saturday to scratch out a 1-all draw.
However it was a different story yesterday when they stretched Richmond Rovers, going down 3-2.
Uki, fielding an under strength outfit, missed early chances and some poor decisions gave Richmond opportunities which they took to go to the break up 3-0.
However, it was a different Uki outfit in the second half who not only kept Richmond scoreless but very nearly managed a draw, coming back with two second half goals.
While the first half left Scholl less than impressed, he was full of praise for his side with their courage in the second half in a very physical encounter.
“Our season is knackered,” a philosophical Scholl said after the match.
“Still we will be out to spoil the hopes of southern teams and do our best to help the other Tweed teams get into the finals.”
Elsewhere, top of the table Pottsville ran riot in South Lismore, beating the southerners 4-0, while Burringbar hold second spot after a convincing 3-2 win over Richmond Rovers, Woodburn beat Dunoon and District 2-0, and Byron Bay upset Goonellabah 2-1.
