Yaralla, Central matched

YARALLA played Central in a tough two-all draw in this week’s round of the Cap League.

The match was a fast-paced, smooth playing game for both teams.

Central coach Aaron Jeffry said he was happy with the way his team played.

“We slacked off a bit and let them back in,” Aaron said.

Andrew Maynard and Peter Doyle scored the two goals for Central.Fullback Michael Heymer gave a good showing and was a standout for Central.

“This game was an important one for Central,” said Jeffry.

“A win would have meant a top-four position for Central, but we may have dropped back in the ladder now depending on the results of other matches,” he said.

Andrew Maynard caused a lot of havoc up front keeping Yaralla’s defence under pressure.

“Late in the game we slackened off and should have kept the pressure on Yaralla and got the win,” Jeffry said.

Central would concentrate on playing a hard game for the full 90 minutes of a match to place pressure on the opposition after some solid training next week.

“We have a bye next week so we have two weeks to concentrate on these things,” Jeffry said.

Yaralla coach Mark Skelhorn said Yaralla had a good comeback in the second half.

“I was disappointed with the team’s performance in the first half,” he said.

Clinton had a bye this week.

Next week Yaralla play Cap Coast at Yaralla, Frenchville play Clinton at Ryan Park and Central have a bye.

There are seven rounds to go in the competition before finals.
