Match Report:
Blue Mountains started strongly against Band Club with immediate pressure resulting in a goal off the foot of Chris Wilson. The midfield, starring Connor McNicol, and frontline especially Nicholas Johnson, maintained pressure through most of the first half with Lachlan Coad touching in and Chris Wilson scoring again off a free kick.

Michael McCauley, Greg Jeans, Liam Butler and Luke Morgan all had opportunities to score, setup by good passing and position holding. Zac Everingham, Adam Lewis and Matthew Montgomery continued the great teamwork throughout the match. The second half proved more testing for keeper Michael McCauley and the defence, including a dogged Willem Jones with several breakaway attacks well defended.

Matt Young was consistent in defence and unlucky not to score off a free kick. Stephen McKee put his body on the line, heading back a huge set kick, holding the ball in Blue Mountains half. After several runs up the sideline Connor Wheatley scored the fourth goal. Nicholas Johnson who was constantly part of the play and setting up for others scored a deserved fifth goal.
