Green v Red . . .


Liverpool Supporters Club (red) and Ngaruawahia Supporters Club. (Someone is hiding!)

The Ngaruawahia and Liverpool Supporters Club clashed at Centennial Park on Saturday 24th resulting in a 10-6 win to Liverpool.

The Narra scoreboard was not constructed to accommodate double-figure scores however!

After leading 3-1 at the end of the first of four 30-minute quarters, Liverpool began to find their feet and combinations to run in a further 9 goals to Narra’s 3. The match was played in extremely good spirits (as was expected) and near the end of the game Narra allowed goalkeeper Brandon Harry to run the length of the pitch and tuck away a penalty kick.
