Those who thought Gerringong was cruising to a likely Shoalhaven Football Association premiership better think again following Saturday’s round of matches.
The Breakers, in the top of the table match against Bomaderry at Gerringong Oval, suffered a 3-1 loss.
The Tigers are now equal with the Breakers on top of the ladder with 46 points.
The Breakers, like the Tigers, have only been beaten twice this year.
Gerringong does have a better for-and-against record but the Tigers are definitely in the running to win the competition.
Things for the final spot in the top four are also getting tight after Manyana’s 1-nil win over Illaroo.
Illaroo has lost its last two matches and Manyana with 30 now has the same amount of competition points as the Roos.
In other matches St Georges Basin, at home, kept Culburra to a nil-all draw, Huskisson, at home, defeated Milton 4-3 and we don’t have any results for the Sussex and Shoalhaven United match.
Basin can thank its stern defenders for getting the draw and Culburra, particularly late in the first half, was camped in its opponent’s territory but did not getting any goals.
The key to Husky’s great win was getting the first goal of the match and working hard.
Shoalhaven Heads Berry enjoyed the week off thanks to the bye.
Before the start of the matches the teams paid tribute to the late football broadcaster Les Murray with a minute’s silence.
