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.

Bal­clutha recorded their big­gest win of the sea­son.
