Final round of the North West summer was played tonight. Both games being played at different venues again.
Devonport were the host to Somerset kicking off at 630. Devonport won this encounter 3-1. Chris McKenna would be happy with his troops being undefeated in the 2012 preseason including winning the Mies family cup back in January.
Somerset will be looking forward to next week facing Launceston City and some new faces after not experiencing the best start with an up and down preseason. John Wheeler opted tonight to rest a few players including Chris Smith.
In the other game also kicking off at 630, Burnie hosted Ulverstone. This game ended a lot closer than many people would have thought. I'm not sure in either camps of any senior players being rested but the game ended in a draw. Burnie for the second week in a row went in half time with the lead thanks to Tyler Johnstone, but yet again unable to keep a lead. Will this be a problem for the proper league? Ulverstone’s saviour was Lain Robert-Thompson.
There is no finals play off this year, rather the Cup was decided on who had the most points out of the six games each team played. Devonport 18 points Ulverstone 10 points Somerset 6 points Burnie 1 point.
