Singleton Strikers 1 (Joe Civello) drew with Cessnock City Hornets 1 (Brodie Williams)

Saturday 1 June, Howe Park

The only game to go ahead in a rain-affected Round 13 was the match at Howe Park between Singleton and Cessnock with both sides claiming a hard-earned point.

Both outfits were looking to build on impressive results in the previous round but couldn’t land the killer blow to claim all three points.

Singleton’s Joe Civello scored his fifth goal of the campaign to continue his good form in front of goal while Brodie Williams hit the back of the net for the Hornets.

The result doesn’t do any favours to either side as Cessnock remain in 5th but are now one point away from the top four while the Strikers stay in 8th spot on the table.

Cessnock could have jumped into the top four with a win although captain, Greg Anderson, said there is still a long way to go yet.

“Ideally getting the three points would have been nice but with so many games left and teams around us having games in hand, there is still plenty of work to be done if we want to be in the running for finals football,” Anderson said.

“The game was a bit of a scrap, Singleton worked hard in the first half forcing us to defend well and second half was better but missed opportunities which held us back from the three points.”

 

All other games were washed out.
