first half was a cagey affair and there was little

an early goal. The goal went to Rex Worth and
what a time to get it! He did have 2 successful
penalties in the shoot-outs and now had a goal
in open play to add to his tournament record.
The first half continued to be close and evenly
contested. There was no further addition to the
score and we reached the break with LMH FC continuing
to lead 1-0.
