Southern Football League – Round 2
Brighton v New Norfolk at Pontville
THE Eagles are back on the winners list after Round 2 with New Norfolk taking a comfortable victory on the road against Brighton last Saturday. Senior coach Jon Murray would be much happier with a positive result and victory for the Eagles who led Brighton at every change.
The game was well and truly over once the third quarter started to progress as the Eagles kicked five unanswered goals in windy conditions and Brighton failed to score. Nathan Ross led the scoring again for New Norfolk with fie majors, whilst Peter Jelkic and Zeke Gardam both scored two goals each with Ross and Josh Clifford both playing excellent games.
A disappointed Brighton coach Jamie Ling would have been looking to bounce back with an improved performance at home but was without numerous avenues to goal on this occasion as Jamie Tubb finished with fie goals for Brighton along with being Brighton’s best player on the day.
