METEORS produced one of the great comebacks in the Gladstone division four competition yesterday against Gladstone United.

Facing a 5-1 half-time deficit, the visitors reeled in three goals in succession at the start of the second half.

But the home side scored to make it 6-4 and seemingly and literally home midway through the second half.

Through the efforts of Scott Rouse (three goals), Meteors were not done with yet.

"We changed our formation and started to win the ball," Rouse said.

His left foot goal early in the second half was amid a monumental momentum shift.

That had to do with how Rouse's team press up on the home side which had been undefeated before yesterday.

"They started to tire and we knew even though we were 6-4 down, our fitness could be telling," Rouse said.

United's classy mover Tyler Stewart said it was a great game with good quality soccer played.

"Meteors are a good team and all you have to do is be strong," Stewart said.

Her has been with the blue and whites for three years and has noted consistency in his game.

"We Were two from two and my own form has been good with better fitness," Stewart said.

United are celebrating its 50th year in the Gladstone competition and club registrar Allan Little said the aim of the club is to play division three next year.

"Our aim is to have one more team every year," Little said.

It's a huge achievement given that the club was on it's knees just a short while ago.

"We now have a full committee," Little said.
