Win­ner at the death

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

UNITED V IN­TER CLUB:

In­ter’s Men’s side were un­lucky not to be the first to over­come Stan­thorpe United in A-grade this sea­son with the young squad show­cas­ing why they’ll be a fi­nals threat come Au­gust.

Af­ter claim­ing a con­vinc­ing 5-0 win back in April, United were lucky to get away with three points af­ter In­ter led 1-0 for much of the match.

United pulled one back from the penalty spot af­ter an In­ter player han­dled the ball on the line and re­ceived his march­ing or­ders.

It was hard to tell In­ter were down a player for the last 30 min­utes, as they fought re­siliently un­til the death. Tired legs set in, al­low­ing United’s Cur­tis Allen to grab the win­ner with roughly 10 left on the clock.

United are waiting on scans for player Dan Davies, af­ter he suf­fered a hor­ri­ble leg in­jury.

Ear­lier in the day In­ter and United’s Fil­lies played out an en­thralling 3-3 game. That was fol­lowed by a con­vinc­ing win for In­ter in the Ju­nior Colts.

With player num­bers low and United hav­ing to field sev­eral ladies player’s in Se­nior Colts, it was a gutsy ef­fort to go down 5-0. In­ter needed two 30-yard ef­forts and a penalty to grab the lead be­fore two classy team goals.

United kept In­ter goal­less in the sec­ond half and will take some con­fi­dence into their game against Ten­ter­field this com­ing Satur­day.

In the Ladies tie United got one over In­ter. Their first round clash proved to be one of the most ex­cit­ing end to end games of the sea­son to date. But this time out, goals to Brit­tany McEvoy and Jess Wester­hout sep­a­rated the two.

De­spite the best ef­forts of In­ter’s Ce­leste Buda and Brodie Pearce, who were ex­cel­lent down the left side, the United girls snatched a fur­ther three points to help their fi­nals shout.
