Lismore Swans fly in grand style
A SEVERELY undermanned Coolangatta Blues battled bravely but were unable to topple the Lismore Swans at Len Peak Oval yesterday, going down 14.13-97 to 9.12-66 in round nine of the Summerland League.
It was better news for the Tweed Coast Tigers though, out-classing the always dangerous Ballina Bombers 10.16-76 to 9.10-64 at Fripp Oval to extend their lead atop the ladder.
Coolangatta and Tweed are set to clash next Saturday in a highly-anticipated local derby.
Elsewhere, despite fielding their strongest side of the season, Nimbin Demons went down to the Byron Bay Magpies 25.17-167 to 11.10-76.
