Fury can create logjam at top

Kemblawarra Fury have the chance to create a remarkable three-way tie at the top of the Illawarra Premier League, just 48 hours after staging a stunning comeback against fellow title contenders Bulli.

Down 2-0 at Balls Paddock on Wednesday night, the Fury scored twice in the final 15 minutes through Matthew McNab to snatch a valuable draw.

The point keeps them within three points of leading duo Wollongong Olympic and Bulli heading into a Friday night showdown with Cringila Lions at Crehan Park.

Should they win the match against the Lions, they would momentarily join both clubs at the top on 29 points before they play their own round 13 matches over the weekend. 

But Fury coach Luke McGuire knows better than to already consider the three points in the bag at Cringila.

“You can’t take them lightly,” he said. “They got a result against Olympic last week and are very well coached by Wally [Savor].’’

The Fury hold a game in hand on Wollongong Olympic and Bulli.

It will be played mid-week later this season against Wollongong United.
