Cobram Roar 1 lost to Albury Hotspurs 3

Cobram started its semi-final off strongly, going into the game against a side it had not beaten in the regular season. 

Roar worked hard in defence, closing the ball down early and getting the ball up field.

Roar was unlucky with its finishing, while Hotspurs found the back of the net with its first opportunity of the match.

Roar players tried not to lose hope and the side found a second wind.

The ball made its way to Nakita Goegan's feet at the top of the box, who kicked a goal to equalise before half-time.

In the second half, midfielder Geili Rehkli worked hard to fed the ball forward, but Cobram could not capitalise, while Hotspurs managed to score twice to win the game 3-1.

Cobram Roar 0 lost to Boomers 2

Cobram was ready for a tough game up against another quality team.

Roar looked stronger and more dominant in possession but could not find the back of the net. Former

Cobram player Kadono Shunsuke made the most of his opportunity scoring a classy goal.

It was a fiery second half with both sides becoming a lot more aggressive going for the ball.

Unfortunately for Cobram, the side conceded a penalty, which Shunsuke scored.
