The Kempsey Saints continued their sparkling late season form in the Mid North Coast Premier League Football competiton, drawing with the Taree Wildcats 1-1 in a game that had coach Jason Fisher lamenting several lost opportunities.
The Macleay Valley Rangers game against the Port Saints was postponed because of ground conditions and a catch-up game could be played as soon as tonight.
The Saints have set a new club record this year having gone seven weeks without a loss, the longest unbeaten run in the club’s MNC Premier League history.
Fisher said he was a bit disappointing with the draw.
“I think we had a few 50-50 calls that didn’t go our way, but that is how it goes sometimes,” Fisher said.
“We trailed 1-0 at the half which I thought was fair as we didn’t play all that well.
“I told the boys we were still well in it if we played well enough and Harry James scored a nice goal for us which was good to see as he has only just come back from a broken arm he got early in the season.”
The reserve grade Saints had a much needed 1-0 win over the Wildcats with a team freshened up by some positional changes.
Toby O’ Brien scored the winner which keeps the Saints in fifth place, clear of the Port Macquarie Saints.
Saints play MVR in a local derby at Eden St this Saturday.
