ESSENDON ROYALS 1 GEORGE CROSS 1 (1-0)
Our Reserve side remained on top of the table at the end of the round 5 matches holding a 3 points lead over 2nd place Preston Lions. The game against Essendon Royals was a close affair that could have gone either way and the 1-1 score line was a fair result at the end of the day.

The Georgies had to roll up their sleeves and work hard in the second half after Lachlan Grech was sent-off just before half time.

Trailing 1-0 at the break, the young Georgies showed tremendous fighting spirit and took control in the second half. The deserved equaliser came 15 minutes from time scored by Tarpeh Togba from the penalty spot.

With a little bit more composure our boys could have taken all 3 points, but it wasn't to be. Well played one and all.
