Pythons proving tough to shake off

THE Uki Pythons showed they intend to be a thorn in the side of teams still in contention for the top four of the Football Far North Coast first division after posting a 4-2 win over Byron Bay at Uki on Saturday.

It what was a memorable day for the club, who won both the reserves and seniors - something that doesn't happen that often according to coach Joe Scholl.

“We had a full compliment of players including some fresh, young players on the bench,” Scholl said.

“What was pleasing about the win is the way we went about it, coming from a 2-1 deficit at half time to finish strongly with three goals, while holding them scoreless in the second half.

“There was good understanding out there on Saturday and if we can continue to play like that we will cause a few of the sides aiming for the fourth spot on the table some headaches.”

For Uki, captain Dave Stratton bagged a double, while Kyle Underwood and Dwayne Fuller had strong games.

Burringbar put last week's double header losses behind them with a solid 2-0 over Woodburn at Woodburn on Saturday.

The win comes as a timely boost for the club who now prepares for the local derby match against Pottsville next Saturday.

Pottsville had a weekend of mixed fortunes going down to Richmond 2-1 on Saturday, before taking the loss out on Casino with an 11-1 thumping yesterday at Pottsville. Adam Rodgers had a great day, scoring four goals.
