The Raiders catchup game with Grafton United last Wednesday pumped in 16 unanswered goals, followed by an eye-watering 12 on Sunday at the Cabbage Patch – Ben Dooley and Fabrice Wamara both featuring heavily on the scoresheet.

It wasn’t the best preparation for Paul Pomroy’s men though. The Boambee FC opposition in the semifinal may not have been fully tested either as they played the other Grafton side who are only a few points higher than zero on the ladder.

The semi-finals, however, should provide a higher level of competition for spectators in a home and away format where away goals are worth two. It will be very interesting indeed at Ayreshire Park this weekend as the Bombers try to do what they have been unable to do to this point: beat the Raiders.

In previous encounters throughout the season, the Raiders beat the Bombers 5-1 and 2-0. While the season has favoured the Raiders, at Areodrome of Ayreshire Park, who knows…

In other results the Raiders Reserve Grade had 9 – 0 and 7 – 1 wins over Grafton United and will play Sawtell in their first semi-final, that game likely to be at Toormina on Saturday.

The Women’s First Grade enjoyed a stirring 1-0 win at the Cabbage Patch over Woolgoolga – Kelsie Williamson-Leslie, the hero with a second half screamer from a thousand yards! Bre Martin and Belinda Moore were also key players in that victory. They will take on the Boambee Eagles at the Cabbage Patch this Saturday and that promises to be a great contest.

Go you Raiders!
