BE warned all you Shoalhaven Football Association teams – Huskisson is on the rise and success will follow.
Huskisson, on Saturday at Vic Zealand Oval against Shoalhaven Heads, showed it is a far better side than its last place on the ladder suggests.
Heads, before kick off, was on 25 points and on top of the ladder, while Huskisson with one point was on the bottom.
Huskisson showed it was not going to give up without a fight and coach Ian Osterloh was reasonably pleased.
“Yeah I am reasonably happy and at the end of the day a draw was a fair result.
“I am happy get a point for the draw.”
Osterloh said it was only a matter of time when things clicked into gear for his team.
“We have been competitive all year but have not got the ball into the back of the net enough,” he said.
“Our defence has been good and we have not conceded many points.”
Huskisson’s point was an own goal gifted to them by the Heads.
Osterloh said centre Brendan Hobbs, striker Sam Boardman and Dave Smith on the right wing were his best players.
Heads’ coach Ross Tasker said he was not displeased – despite his team being firm favourites.
“Sure we went in favourites but we were due for hiccup,” Tasker said.
“Huskisson is a good side.”
The first half was dominated by defence and neither side found the back for the net.
Heads had a near perfect start to the second half when Jarrod Ryding kicked a goal 30 seconds into the term.
“We had a lot more chances than them,” Tasker said.
Tasker said his each member of the side contributed.
