Finally, it was great to see the Sydney boys back in action at the Northern Falcons game night on Monday. "Some rusty players but a fun evening. The highlight - or possibly the lowlight - was the almost interminable shoot-out in the semi final between Tony and Geoff, which was 1-1 at full time. We had earlier decided to go straight to shots in the event of a draw, rather than extra time, to "save time".... little were we to realise the multi-part drama that was to follow! It was 0-0 after 5 shots, with the keeper, the post and the fans behind the goal kept busy by our two protagonists. Tony finally broke the deadlock with his 9th shot, only for Geoff to bloody equalise, of course. The drama of non-scoring continued until the 14th shot, when Tony finally got a second and Geoff narrowly missed. Phew!! It had only taken about 15 minutes!", reported a very enthusiast Eliot Kennedy. Eliot won the final against Tony Credentino (Sydney TFC) to claim the trophy!
