Round 8 Match Report

Darcy Patterson
A cold and bitter night on the upper north shore set the scene for two gruelling fixtures. Kissing Point, who between both first grade and reserves had only acquired 3 points, were looking to impress a big home crowd. And boy were they up for it.
The first grade Northbridge side came out fast and put the pressure on early. The bumpy pitch made it tough for the midfield to get on the ball, as both sides looked to use the flanks and balls over the top to get in behind the back 4. An early goal would be vital for the Bridge, and speedster Alex Patridge knew it too, as he took the game on and sent a peach of a ball across the box for Robbie Kerr to tap in. 1 nil the score at half time. The second half was an arm-wrestle and as the likelihood of a 2nd goal shrunk, new recruit Zak Brown took it upon himself to close out the game. The classy English centre back and Man of the Match stayed calm, cleaned up loose balls, and was a central figure in maintaining team’s clean sheet. One of those wins that premierships are built off. 1 nil the final score.
A similarly gritty performance in reserve grade. Pumped up by the local support, Kisso’s high press and quick transition made life tough for a Bridge team trying to stick to the slow build up play that had served them well all season. A 30 yard worldie from Kissing Point’s #10 broke the deadlock, but Northbridge responded quickly, with the bulldozer, Alec Trevena, powering a header home. Scores level after the first 45.
The next 45 would not be easy on the eye. Both Northbridge and Kissing Point were desperate for a second goal, ultimately resulting in some ping pong play in midfield. In a game that looked destined to finish level, Northbridge needed someone to create something out of nothing. And that’s exactly what Man of the Match and #9 Luke Marshall did. The talisman didn’t give up on a ball that was destined for the keepers hands, throwing his body between ball and keeper to knock it into an open net. Champion sides win ugly. 2 – 1 the final score.

PASTA MONDAYS @ The Willoughby Hotel
