Co­bram Roar 3 lt Al­bury Hot­spurs 4 In round eight, Co­bram Roar came up against a strong phys­i­cal side in Al­bury Hot­spurs.

The first half saw both teams evenly matched.

Seb Fo­tia opened the scor­ing with a goal from the square through heavy traf­fic. This set up a great con­test and both teams were kept busy with the ball racing up and down the field.

The mid­field work rate of Noah Sul­li­van, De­clan Cheong and Noah Sned­don was su­perb and the back­line of Hunter Goodin, Nick Wood and Toby Shilling stood solid in de­fence, deny­ing Al­bury Hot­spurs any scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The Roar was sur­prised early in the sec­ond half by a quick goal by the Hot­spurs. How­ever, the boys re­tal­i­ated quickly with a great goal from Sam Wood.

The in­ten­sity of the game lifted with both teams equal on the score­board.

Al­bury Hot­spurs took ad­van­tage of a rare open­ing in de­fence and ham­mered home a long-range shot which found the back of the net. Not to be out­done, the boys ral­lied and Seb Fo­tia fin­ished off a great run for­ward with his sec­ond goal.

The game moved up an­other notch and be­came a tough phys­i­cal con­test.

Al­bury Hot­spurs scored again with an­other lon­grange kick.

The Co­bram play­ers took up the chal­lenge again and be­gan their re­lent­less at­tack on goal. Un­for­tu­nately, they were beaten by the clock.

Over­all, it was a great con­test and the team was un­lucky to come away with a loss. Goals: S. Fo­tia, S. Wood. Best: N. Sul­li­van, N. Wood, N. Sned­don.
