Clutha football round up
Balclutha AFC recorded their biggest win of the season over the weekend with a 12-1 win over bottom-placed Green Island.
Eight unanswered goals included a wonder goal from Tim Button and a first goal for man of the match Josh Thompson for the season. Both added a second goal to their tally later in the half.
The opposition came out more defensively in the second half but this barely stemmed the flow of goals.
Clutha was disappointed to concede a goal after being so dominant, after they failed to clear a ball after a free kick.
The other scorers were Jack Barraclough with five, two from Shane Neal and Marek Miesiwicz.
A second-half goal from Jesse Maher saw the second team salvage a draw against Mornington AFC. While both teams had opportunities to take the win, the home team were disappointed not to have capitalised more on a dominant second half performance. Man of the match for Balclutha was Glenn Mead.
Earlier in the day the women’s team had hosted a Mosgiel team and were defeated 6-3. After holding the score to 1-all at half time, this was a disappointing result but reflected the opposition’s ability to regularly rotate their players due to having a larger squad.
