Wow, got this one wrong. South Armidale were up to the task and unlucky not to upset the Redmen. The score was one all at half time, with Nashwan Jaralah scoring for South Armidale Green and Declan Druitt for North Armidale Redmen. South Armidale Yellow scored first in the second half through Bassim Ali while Lachlan Harris scored for North Armidale Redmen. The rest of the second half was tense, with the crowd on the edge of their seats with each teams attempts to break the deadlock. A two all draw a fitting end to a fast, end to end game.
Demon Knights and South Armidale Yellow drew one all in their game at Rologas.
Again a very fast game in warm conditions with Narran Singh's goal in the first half giving Demon Knights the lead at half time. South Armidale Yellow's Shinzu Shuky, when on the ball always creates forward momentum and pressures the defense. His raids up the left hand side of the pitch was rewarded with his goal and the equaliser, creating the final whistle draw in this game.
