Demon Knights (3) East Armidale (2)
Demon Knights are proving to be a much better team than their seasons start against East Armidale. In a five-goal thriller both teams created good goal scoring opportunities keeping the large crowd on the edge of their seats. The half time score was one all with Demon Knights Shane McCann starting the goal scoring off after ten minutes of play. Easts countered five minutes later through Basim Khudhers first goal of the day. The deadlock was broken when Narran Singh took the opportunity of space outside the box to drive the ball home (pick the photo of the sot) early in the second half. Aaron scored his second with twenty minutes to go while Basim also scored his second. The one goal difference in the end was a good reflection of a fast crowd pleaser.

South Armidale (6) Inverell (1)
Josh Frost is on fire scoring another hattrick (hopefully). The score was three nil at half time through goals to Heath Milne, Josh Frost and Vichit Tha. The second half saw Josh score another two and Tom Davies get the Scorpions sixth goal. Inverell's Riley Schultz scored Inverell's goal. Inverell even though are not getting close on the scoreboard to the leading teams demonstrate the ability to control the ball and challenge the oppositions defense. Just lacking the ability to sustain pressure and repel it throughout the game.

Open Division 3
Glen Innes (8) Guyra (2)
Glen Innes were hot and had a big lead early in this game. A team effort with the finishers Braiden Crawford and Connor Duddy picking up four goals each. Not sure what were the inputs into this big difference with my pre game reflection of poor defense or great attacking still unanswered, still keen on the opinion of members of both teams.
South Armidale (2) Armidale City Westside FC Blue (0)
Well it turned out that the Scorpions were too strong for the Blues. Michael Lord must be high on the goal scorers list scoring the first half goal for the Scorpions, with Alex Morris scoring his goal ion the second half.

Guyra (2) Armidale City Westside (0)
The autopick had the goal difference right and I was off the mark. Guyra had the most of the first half with goals to Steven McElroy and Robert Sisson. Neither team could make anything of their chances in the second half leaving the game two goals to nil win to Guyra.
North Redmen (4) East Armidale (2)

South Armidale (15) Demon Knights (0)
Disappointing result for the league and from where I sit both teams. The team sheet looks as though Demon Knights did not turn up, player numbers and on the park. The seven-goal hoist in the first half came from goals to Michael Lord, Andrew Edwards, John Schmude and four of Ryan walkers five goals. The second half scorers were Joe Campbell, Craig Wright, Michael Lord, Ryan Walker, John Schmude, Kyan Htun, Chris Pietese and Tom Whitley.
