The first half was a scrappy affair with both sides not really getting into to any rhythm and the game just went from end to end. Just 4 Kick took the lead mid way through the first half when C. Cannuli right foot shot from outside the “D” was too strong for T. Rosekelly in the V.I.M goal. V.I.M lifted and started to pass the ball nicely around the court and went close to an equalizer R. Tomkins effort just flew over the top of the bar. At half time Just 4 Kicks had the slight advantage going into the break one-nil up.
The second half V.I.M started the strong and N. Spirovski was always dangerous on the ball and provided a nice ball to K. Doyle who found the back of the net to equalize. Both teams had a number of chances to seal victory but neither could take advantage. With five minutes to go V.I.M found the winner when R.Tomkins found its way past A.Oliva in the Just 4 Kicks goal.

In the men’s action match of the round was a battle of youth with Dural Warriors taking on Quake Youth with a number of talented youngsters on show this was always going to be an entertaining match up. The warriors got off to the best possible start with a cheeky back heel by Engelo Rumora found its way into the bottom left corner of the net. Quake was also dangerous through David Von Dinklage and he equalized with a cracking effort after Emmanuel Harihiru through ball found Von Dinklage on the right hand side of the “D” and his first time effort from the acute angle gave Ian Pemberton no chance as it cannoned into the roof of the net. Dural took the lead not long after as Ben Lawson capitalised on some poor goal keeping by James Gilligan in the Quake goal allowed Lawson to tap into an empty net. At half time the Warriors were leading two-one.
The send half was a battle between Von Dinklage and Lawson. Von Dinklage again equalized for Quake with a nice team effort which was well finished off by Von Dinlage. Quake then took the lead with a cracking effort by Von Dinklage as he chipped Pemberton from just outside his own “D”, the ball travel three quarters of the court into the top left hand corner to give Von Dinklage a well deserved Hat-trick. It was then Lawson’s turn and he delivered with two goals in the space of a minute to put the Warriors back into the lead. The drama continued when Gilligan now playing 5th man found his way inside the Warriors half and on the end of a pass from Chris Sheerin and Gilligan’s first time shot to the far post found its way through the traffic to equalize for the Quake side. With 30 seconds remaining there was a winner when Troy Valentiner shot gave Pemberton no chance in the Warriors goal to give Quake the victory in this entertaining contest. Quake Youth have jumped Dural in to top spot while Dural has slipped back to second spot.
