Jason Mann saved a penalty as Melville lost 3-0 to Wanderers at Porritt Stadium.
In the interests of assisting team morale, Melville have shot the messenger and no longer report on northern premier league matches, or reveal where we sit in the league. But it was a good save.
Meanwhile there was no truth to the post-match suggestion that Melville would seek a replay after Wanderers grafter Bailey Webster was found to be playing without shin pads.
The Reserves lost 2-1. Jake Bayliss scored for Melville but his brother Aaron - the blue sheep of the family - potted two for Wanderers. Report pending.
However the Mighty Melville Feds continued their winning ways at the top of the Federation league, beating Katikati 3-1, with two goals from Matt Page and one from Luke Goodwin. Report pending.
