Byron Bay Veterans Monday November 3. Very quiet today due to the heavy rain we had in the morning but, as it worked out, the rain dissipated and it was a beautiful cool day with hardly a breath of wind, perfect for golf. Those who didn't come, missed out on a great day. There were only 19 starters, just enough to hold the comp, and there were some hot scores too. Congratulations to Winner Max Finkenauer on 28 points, 2nd Jonathan Ricketts 28, 3rd poor old Zack Zytnik who wondered what he had to do - 27 points and only came third; he played with Max and it got into a matchplay situation on the last couple of holes, once again Zack came out runner up as he three putted the 8th from just off the green and Max missed his birdie by 1 inch, but then they went in, had a few beers and laughed it off, Peter George 25, Alan Harwood 23, Peter Barry 23 (first of the balls; we forgot to mention Peter last week who would have beat Zack and Barry Mole easily in the gross of the Byron Bay Vets Open but unfortunately he is not eligible, being an ex-pro), Peter Brosnan 23, Peter Kiernan 23, Brian Buckley 22, Mick Trimble 22, Brian Sundstrom 21, Dick Dumbrell 21. There was no Snickers bar today but if there was, Michael Dilli would have won it easily with 18 points. See you all next week for another big one, 18 hole event, Northern Rivers Veterans Championships 2008 to be held at Byron Bay Golf Club. Good luck to everyone, let's hope Byron can win it again. , SOCCER Byron Bay Youth League Byron's Youth League team came up against South Lismore on Friday at the Bay, with another hard-fought game, played in good spirit. Missing Yoshua our keeper, young Jordy Leeson put the gloves on with a creditable first performance in goals, especially his well-timed runs. Tested a number of times in the first half, it took a break-through at the 22 minute mark, with the opposition striker one on one with Jordy, before South Lismore got past him to score. Byron players such as Nick, Jake and Lachlan were putting good pressure on their opponents, with Yantra outstanding in winning the ball, and good passing between Mav and Tim creating dangerous opportunities for Byron. Coming out of the break one down, the Rams had their backs to the wall for the first 15 minutes of the second half, with some tough and clever defending from Max and the loss of Lachy with injury, while Mitch McGrath was putting himself on the line and delivering some good free kicks. However South Lismore found the net twice in this period, but Byron rallied with Jordy again outstanding. As the momentum changed , there was a good strike from Yantra and some effective movement into attack set up by Jarrad and Keith. Alex's cross from a penalty, after great work from Tai and Nick, almost resulted in a score, then there was some desperate attacking right in the box and finally a long angled strike from Mav after a perfect Alex cross, which just failed to find the top corner. The young Byron team had fought the game out to the end. Newcomers Booth and Jake had shown their mettle. James and Nick had kept the pressure up front against a fast and skilled defence. But this time the visitors went away with the 3-0 win. Ocean Shores Shores United Junior Soccer Club is holding its AGM on Saturday November 15 at 2pm at Ocean Shores Country Club. All positions will become vacant for 2009 and new committee members and interested parents are encouraged to attend. , SOFTBALL Byron Bay Division 1: Whitesox v Rous RangersWhitesox had a deferred game this week against Rous Rangers and will play a double header at 4pm and 6pm on 15/11/08.Division 3: Byron Bay Redsox v Breakaways B1Byron Bay Redsox played a good game winning 16-6 against Breakaways B1. Annalies Melene pitched a great game to Simone Reaney at catcher who also took two fly catches. Mary Juhasz at shortstop combined well with Deb Bond at second base and Sarah Knapp at third base to make some good put outs while Kate Frohm took a good catch at left field. Annalies Melene, Freya Lindquist and Rani Lindquist had a good day with the bat and hit some good line drives through the infield gaps to the outfield. A consistent effort with the bat backed up by a solid performance in the field was key to Redsoxs win.Under 13's Mixed: Byron Bay SuperSox v Dodgers MustangsEven though their numbers were down SuperSox played a good game going down to Dodgers 15-7. Linzi Stewart, Zayla Arthur and Mary Juhasz all batted well. Freya Lindquist took a good infield fly catch at first base and Azlan Currie had a good game at second base positioning herself well and backing up the plays. This newly formed side with both experienced and beginner players will only improve with some more match practice.The club is looking for more players for our senior womens teams at both social and commpetitive levels as well as our mixed junior Under 13's side (transport can be arranged for the juniors to get to the game and to practice).
