Some pundits rate it as one of, if not the, most exciting win of their many seasons together, being down 0-1 at halftime, then 1-1 at fulltime, to go 2-1 with a golden goal in the 19th minute of extra time giving them victory over AC United from the Southern Districts Association.
Zac scored first ( being his first goal of the season ) after a strong run and shot from about 25m out; and the second goal came from a Manning corner headed in by Roy.
“It was as deep as I’ve ever seen these boys dig in for a win”, said one enthusiastic supporter.
Well done to all the boys, Semi-Finals news to follow.
In earlier action on the day, Saints Over30s Women’s team engaged in a tense battle with their opponents from the Sutherland District Association.
They were defeated 2 – 0 on the day ( a goal in either half ) by a very strong and well organised team and though they played very well throughout the match they were eclipsed by a stronger team on the day.
They can be well proud of their achievement in this tournament. Well done to our Women players for a wonderful season.
