SUNDAY SCOREBOARD: Storm rolls into top spot

SIX rounds into the Coastal Premier League competition and there is no clear outlier yet, as teams continue to take points from one another.

There are just two points separating first and fifth as previous frontrunners Port Saints and Macleay Valley Rangers both fell to solid Coffs Harbour sides.

Northern Storm held on to beat the Rangers 3–2 in a gutsy performance away from home.

Storm stalwart Jamie Kennedy bagged a first half hat-trick with three goals straight out of the top drawer.

The win puts them equal first after Coffs Coast Tigers put four goals past a Port Saints outfit which would have fancied themselves for the away win.

Boambee continued their good run after cruising to a 4–0 home-win over Taree Wildcats.

Sawtell was unable to capitalise on a confidence boosting midweek win over Port United, falling to Coffs City United.

The Lions were able to get back to winning ways after a slip-up against a well drilled Boambee side on Wednesday.

Port United played out a 3–3 draw with Kempsey Saints in the final game of the round.
