RESULTS: New-FM 1st Division 2015 Round 6

NEW-FM 1st Division Round 6

Cessnock City Upset Belswans At Blacksmiths Oval:

The Cessnock City Hornets picked up just their second win of the campaign on Sunday afternoon with an upset 1-0 win over Belmont-Swansea at Blacksmiths Oval. The win moves Cessnock above Belswans on the league table and allows the Hornets to build some confidence ahead of a big home game next week against West Wallsend.

In the lower grades, it was Cessnock getting the win in the 23's but their 19's and 17's endured horror losses at the hands of the Belswans. Nobody wants to see results like 11-1 and 9-0 in any grade. I've been there and it's pretty depressing. Hopefully the young Hornets can bounce back next week.

1st Grade: Belmont-Swansea 0-1 Cessnock City
Under 23's: Belmont-Swansea 2-5 Cessnock City
Under 19's: Belmont-Swansea 11-1 Cessnock City
Under 17's: Belmont-Swansea 9-0 Cessnock City

West Wallsend Stunned By Dominant Valentine Side:

It's not everyday you see 19 goals scored across four games but it was a day of goals at Johnston Park. Unfortunately for the West Wallsend Bluebells, they were on the receiving end of their heaviest loss this season at the hands of a dominant Valentine Phoenix side.

The 6-0 loss not only would have dented the Bluebells side's confidence ahead of next week's trip to Cessnock but also dented their chances of promotion with Lakes winning their match today. Jumped by Valentine on the table, West Wallsend cannot afford to lose games like this regularly.

It's all good news for Valentine though as they reminded the competition just what they're about with a superb 6-0 win over West Wallsend. The Phoenix also recorded big wins in the Under 23's and Under 19's but they were outdone in the opening match of the day with West Wallsend's 17's winning 4-0.

1st Grade: West Wallsend 0-6 Valentine FC
Under 23's: West Wallsend 0-5 Valentine FC
Under 19's: West Wallsend 0-4 Valentine FC
Under 17's: West Wallsend 4-0 Valentine FC

Cooks Hill Not Good Enough For Top Of The Table Lakes:

I've been to all the home games for Cooks Hill this season and would have went out to Macquarie Field but decided to go and watch some NPL instead. It seems I made the wrong decision with the game between Broadmeadow and Hamilton finishing scoreless and this one providing eight goals.

The Cookers showed that they have what it takes to compete in the New-FM 1st Division but were always up against it against an in-form Lake Macquarie City side. The home side moved two points clear at the top whilst Cooks Hill dropped to eighth.

Lakes remained top in the Under 23's competition with a 2-1 win whilst Cooks Hill's 19's kept their higher-placed opposition scoreless in a 0-0 draw. The top of the table clash in the Under 17's ended with a 5-3 win for the home side as Cooks Hill fell to their first loss of the campaign.

1st Grade: Lakes 5-3 Cooks Hill
Under 23's: Lakes 2-1 Cooks Hill
Under 19's: Lakes 0-0 Cooks Hill
Under 17's: Lakes 5-3 Cooks Hill

Finally! Toronto-Awaba Record First Win Of The Season:

Toronto-Awaba have won their first game of 2015 with a spirited 2-0 win over the Thornton Redbacks this afternoon. No doubt it would have been a relieving win for a Stags side that had conceded 16 goals in five games to keep a clean sheet and record a win. 

In the lower grades, Thornton got the job done in both the Under 23's and Under 19's whilst the struggling Redbacks' 17's went down to an in-form Stags side in the opening match of the day at Thornton Park.

1st Grade: Thornton 0-2 Toronto-Awaba
Under 23's: Thornton 2-0 Toronto-Awaba
Under 19's: Thornton 3-0 Toronto-Awaba
Under 17's: Thornton 1-3 Toronto-Awaba

Kahibah Record Maiden Win In New-FM Competition:

The last of the three promoted teams to be without a win in the 2015 New-FM season, Kahibah FC have pulled off an away win at Singleton's Howe Park to record their maiden win in the New-FM 1st Division. I said during the week that Kahibah were due and they avoided bottom spot on the table with the three points today.

I'm expecting this to be the first of a few Kahibah wins this season whilst Singleton are now without a win in their last two outings. 

Kahibah clean swept the entire day at Howe Park. The 23's pulled off a 3-1 whilst the 19's moved off of the bottom of the table with a 2-1 win. Finally, Kahibah's 17's kept their spot in the top four alive with a 3-2 victory.

1st Grade: Singleton 2-3 Kahibah
Under 23's: Singleton 1-3 Kahibah
Under 19's: Singleton 1-2 Kahibah
Under 17's: Singleton 2-3 Kahibah
