Byron, Ballina go 1-all

ALL but one game in the opening round of Tursa Anzac Cup soccer was washed out, with Byron Bay and Ballina playing a tight 1-all draw at Byron Bay yesterday in the only game to get on.

Ballina led 1-0 at half-time with a goal from Troy Cook, who has returned to his old club after being top scorer for Alstonville last year.

Jonathan Pierce equalised from an Ian Lennie free kick early in the second half for the Rams and while they looked stronger, they couldn’t find a winning goal.

Younger players stood out for both sides, with Ballina flankers Nick Key and Mitch James impressing on debut.

Byron Bay prospect Sam Robson also had a strong debut, while new signing Shannon Maciejewski was strong in the second half and stood out against his old club.
