Namoi League – Round 9 Review

July 6th, 2021

Narrabri continued its golden run with a 6-1 win over a depleted Moree on Saturday, while the match between Narrabri Elevens and Wee Waa was washed out.

The top-of-the-table Narrabri found themselves behind early thanks to a spectacular effort from Moree captain Adam Ha. It did not take long however for the visitors to retain the ascendancy.

“We were behind very early 1-0 then we hit back in the 20th, 21st, and 30th minute and led 3-1 at halftime,” coach Neil Brayshaw said.

Three more goals in the second half rubbed out any hope of a comeback for Moree with Narrabri now 14-points clear at the top-of-the-table.

“It was absolutely brilliant play by the entire squad, and we have adapted very well to our new playing structure of 4-3-3,” Brayshaw said.

“Our team is all on board of how I want them to play, and they are playing with such freedom and confidence… I only used the three subs yesterday and it was a test to see how fit some of our guys are, but they passed with flying colours.

Without five of his starting side, it was always going to be tough going for Moree according to coach Matt Urquhart though that did not stop them testing the visitors early.

“We started really strong with our captain Adam Ha scoring a screamer in the first 15-minutes, but after that Narrabri came back with a goal and then our heads dropped,” he said.

“I can’t take too much away from the match as we obviously weren’t at full strength, but I was really pleased that our lads really pushed to compete for the whole 90-minutes.”
