North Coast all set to be a close one
It’s a four-horse race following the first round of the North Coast Interclub League with the Byron Breakers staying in touch with joint leaders, the Coffs Harbour Rockets, the Hat Head Hammerheads and the Clarence Valley Stingrays. We knew it would be a close one, but we did not expect a 3x max out with the Coffs Harbour Rockets, Clarence Valley Stingrays & Hat Head Hammerheads leaving Yamba with maximum points. Coffs Harbour collected the most points on the day, with Clarence Valley second and Hat Head third but all remain on 25 points given the Max Out rule.
Inaugural ICL Champions Coffs Harbour hit the ground running with Age Group wins to Ensbey, Hodge & Barry. For the Hammerheads it was McEvoy and Tamblyn who led the way with Culton, Lovell and Barker ensuring the Stingrays started with a bang.
Hanninen, Killen & Cascajares were the stars for the Breakers as they stayed in touch with the thee Clubs who Maxed Out.
The new kids on the block the Grafton Bull Sharks made a great debut with 8.5 points, a sure force to be reckoned with as they continue to grow.
Rounding out the ladder was the Ballina Seahorses, leaving plenty of room for improvement this season. Wickham ensuring that the Seahorses still had plenty to celebrate.
All roads lead to Trial Bay in February, where we’re set for a showdown for round 2.
Byron Bay can’t afford a widening gap and those above them, cannot miss a beat if they’re wanting to stamp their authority on ICL04.
