Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
At the first round of the Peter Dawson Cup in soccer, Southland beat North Otago, 2-0 in Oamaru. Playing superior soccer and dominating the run of play, Southland cannot get complacent as there was a lot of lost opportunites. Southland had 90 percent of possession but continually missed the last kick which always missed the mark of getting the ball into the goal.
This is why Southland has to lift its game as it will be a different story when they meet Otago, next week. The whole team had superb foot work and it was with comparative ease that they outwitted the opposition and forced mistakes.
Southland currently hold the cup and it will be little trouble to maintain it against the minor associations as it is a well balanced side.
The forward player centred around former New Zealand representative Doug Ottley. Sinclair and Davidson played soundly and the wings Scott and A. McMurdo gave pleasing performances.
The halves played a harrassing game throughout and any ground gained by North Otago was hard earned.
Southland's rearguard did not function as well as North Otago's goalkeeper, Cooper.
The game was all Southlands in the first half with the defence being called upon only two to three times. The second half began the same way with Southland constantly being on attack, and towards the middle of the second half, it looked like Southland had tired and if North Otago had a bit more polish to their game it could well have been reversed.
After 15 minutes in the first spell, during which several attempts went wide, Davidson followed through smartly during a misunderstanding between Driessens and Lowen to open Southland's scoring. Then after a good forward move, Scott received on the right wing and centred to Sinclair who had no difficulty, in beating Lowen with a corner shot.
The teams were:
NORTH OTAGO - Lowen, Kooge, Driessens, Blomfield, Murray, White, Ketchen, Essenburge, Norman, Bingham, de Goyer.
SOUTHLAND - Cooper, Shields, Duncan, Kellock, McMurdo, Jones, A. McMurdo, Davidson, Sinclair, Ottley, Scott.
