NORTH Coast Football sides have had a tough trip to Lake Macquarie as they faced an Edgeworth Eagles club that made it a difficult match day for the visitors.
The Eagles made it a clean sweep of North Coast Football sides during the latest round of the NPL Boys Northern NSW season.
North Coast Football Player and Coach Development Manager Alex Nolan gave his recap of the round.
“With the under 16s it was 0-0 at half-time and they lost 3-0, and the 14s were up 1-0 with 15 minutes to go but lost 2-1,” he said.
“The 13s conceded some very early goals, while the 15s had some good patches of football.”
North Coast Football under 16s are still top of the ladder, while the under 14s are currently third.
North Coast Football sides are at home this weekend when they host the Lambton Jaffas at the Coffs Football Centre Synthetics, which Nolan said would provide another test as they tried to bounce back at home.
“Lambton bring good football across the board and they like to play direct,” he said.
“We really struggled with the long ball against Edgeworth, and that’s what Lambton will bring on the weekend.”
