IN just their second season in the Football South Coast, the Gerringong Breakers continue to make plenty of noise.
Through the first 12 rounds of their 2020 community league division one first grade campaign, the Breakers have 10 wins, one draw and one loss to their name.
Those wins came against Coledale (2-nil and 3-1), Oak Flats (3-nil), Uni Spurs (3-1 and 5-1), Albion Park City (4-1), Port Kembla (2-nil), Vale Banter (8-1) and United Wolves (2-nil and 4-1).
The one draw was a washed-out game against Albion Park City and the defeat was at the hands of Dandaloo (3-2).
"The team has been playing well," coach Andy Lockard, who admits the club has flourished since joining Football South Coast, with registration numbers at an all-time high, said.
"We are continually improving as the season goes on, as players adapt to the Breakers' style of play."
As such, they currently sit in first place on 31 points, alongside Port Kembla - who they face on Saturday at King George Park.
"Port Kembla is a great side with numerous big-name players," Lockard said.
"It was a solid match last time we met and it'll be the same this time around.
"The points will go to whoever finishes their chances."
A win, with seven rounds remaining before finals, would go a long way to helping Andy Lockard's troops secure the minor premiership.
"A win will be very important in the title race," Lockard said.
"Both teams have slipped up only once each this season."
Jake Packham has been a standout for the Gerry Emery Oval-based club, scoring eight goals in just nine matches - with Paul Gaffney and Joshua Woods chipping in five and four respectively.
