Bird?s dot shot the difference



A solitary goal from penalty specialist Tim Bird gave Byron Bay a hard-fought 1-0 win over local rivals Bangalow on Tuesday night in Soccer Far North Coast Tursa Premier League.

His dot shot late in the first half was all that separated the sides in a tight contest, as was the case in their last start against Maclean, when a late penalty from Bird also sealed a Rams victory.

Both 'keepers played a part in the low scoreline, with Alex Pratt from Bangalow and the Rams Kai Connell producing some fine saves.

Byron midfielders Eden Robinson and Shaun Packham had strong games, with the win lifting the Rams to a share of fifth, but leaving the Bluedogs at the foot of the ladder.
