Match Report

Sydney's second match was against the talented Far North Coast team. After a last-minute draw in the same championships in 2020, FNC were going to be a tough prospect.

With a squad that included a former Kookaburra and a long time Queensland Blades representative along with many other talented players, Far North Coast were understandably full of optimism coming into these championships and started the game in high-intensity mode. Sydney struggled to contain their counter-attacking style.

It only took 12 minutes before the Sydney defence was penetrated and not surprisingly Grant Smith was the beneficiary. Fighting hard, Sydney equalised with a field goal from Mark Greaves. However late in the first half, leaving Grant Smith unmarked proved dangerous again and Sydney went into half time trailing 2-1.

Four minutes after half-time, Evan Watson restored parity, only to have Grant Smith complete his hat-trick a minute later. Andrew Newton smashed home a goal to level it up again in the 32nd minute and in the 40th minute Kamal Naqvi gave Sydney the lead for the first time.

Unfortunately, Chris Clarke grabbed an equaliser to complete the scoring in the 45th minute and have the game finish 4-4 in a highly entertaining contest. Yet again, Sydney and Far North Coast played out a draw and Sydney was left to rue missed opportunities.
