Shoot-out marathon teams to meet again

By STEVE SPINKS

COULD it happen again.

In Soccer Far North Coast women's second division recently Lismore Thistles and Lismore Workers played possibly the longest penalty shoot-out in local history.

Each side took 13 penalties after extra-time failed to get a result in the qualifying semi-final.

Workers eventually prevailed after both goalkeepers lost plenty of skin off their knees.

Now it's on again.

Thistles won their minor semi-final over Woodburn 2-1 at the weekend and Workers were defeated 3-0 by Alstonville in the major semi-final.

However, it seems Thistles' wobbles in penalty shoot-outs has crept into other grades.

Thistles fourth division women's team went down in extra time to Byron Bay at the weekend to be eliminated.

However, the Over-35 men's team restored some pride with an elimination semi-final win over Ballina ... after a penalty shoot-out.
