The Rosemeadow Royals defied the odds by making it the farthest they ever have in a cup competition. The 6th round, with a close 2-1 win over fellow IV team, Jungle Magic.
“It’s great that this squad has continued to rally together and make history. Too bad about the league. But the cup is going brilliantly. In to the last 256. Not bad. Half way to the final.” – G.M.
Duglio’s 21st minute goal was quickly cancelled out by Magic’s Enrique Gallardo in the 25th minute. Helling grabbed the winning goal in the 73rd minute, with yet another good counter-attack down the left.
Rosemeadow now face another IV opponent, the Bryndwr Bulls from South NZ. There is also other great cup news, with Pig Hunters also making it to the 6th round for the first time. In a twist of fate, their next opponent is the Premier League team that knocked out fellow V.95′er Menai Spurs in the 5th round. Will they get revenge for V.95, or will Kal’s Krew finish off V.95 representation in the cup this season?
Rosemeadow now focus on the next game at hand which is a home game against league new comers and joint leaders Les Murray’s Allstars and who were until last weekend, on a 20 game winning streak. They are still undefeated in the league and look to take to the title in their first season here, much like Rosemeadow did last time out.
In youth news, The Cobras have once again fallen short on the penultimate day of the GMC Youth Premier League season. Losing a tough game, 3-2 to now crowned champions Chute Colts. The Cobras once again dejetedly collect their silver medals for the 2nd season in a row.
