Senior Equestrian Games

10-Man Hills United Off To Ideal Start
Newly-promoted National Premier Leagues Men’s NSW outfit, Hills United sounded a warning to their rivals with a stunning 2-1 victory over fancied Sydney Olympic outfit in the opening march of the football season.

The win is all the more remarkable because Luke Casserly’s team played the majority of the match at Belmore Sports Ground with 10 players after Nicolai Muller was sent off in the 34th minute.

Hills United’s Japanese import Yu Okubo stunned the hosts with an eighth minute goal before Sydney Olympic drew level with a Roy O’ Donovan penalty in the 86th minute.

However, Hills United had the last laugh when Eion Montford cooly slotted home a penalty two minutes later to silence the home crowd. United coach Luke Casserly was over the moon saying: “Six or seven years ago, we weren’t even an NPL status.

So, the work everyone has done over that period to now be in the highest League we can be in and playing a big traditional club like Sydney Olympic and come away with the win, I’m just so rapt for all the fantastic people involved with Hills United.

Jack Attack Is Back Jack
Attack is a lawn bowls game similar to Barefoot Bowls but played over a number of weeks as a competition.

Players are mostly inexperienced bowlers, participating for fun, friendship, and prizes. Dural Bowling Club is hosting Jack Attack from February 16th and March 2nd with prizes donated by the parent club Parramatta Leagues.

It is pleasing to see some returning teams that took part in the competition of last October and November. Anyone interested in playing Jack Attack can contact Robyn Scoble on 0416035655.

*Anyone interested in playing bowls or having a Barefoot Bowls Party, please contact Robert on 0411 375 580.
