Namoi comes out on top in a seven-goal thriller

Namoi comes out on top in a seven-goal thriller

Namoi United was celebrating for more than just one reason on Saturday.

The side not only came away with their second victory of the year against Moree FC but also, more importantly, climbed over Moree and out of last position on the Northern Inland Premier League (NIPL) Southern Conference ladder.

The visiting Moree men made Namoi work hard for the crucial three points, pushing the side right to the end in a 4-3 finish in favour of the Namoi Carps.

The weekend’s win has Carps looking likely to have pulled off another great escape and avoid the wooden-spoon for a second year running, with just two games left of the season.

Narrabri Boxing: Let’s get ready to rumble

Narrabri Boxing: Let’s get ready to rumble

Dreams will be made and careers could be put to bed.

Dreams will be made and careers could be put to bed.

That is how serious this weekend’s fight night at the Crossing Theatre is being taken by the pro boxers featuring on the event card.

Two World Boxing Association (WBA) title belts are up for grabs on the Saturday night.

Olympic boxer turned-professional gloveman, Cameron Hammond, is putting his WBA Oceania welterweight title on the line.

The 25-year-old, who is born and bred in Moree, will go toe-to-toe with Sydney’s Sedat Tasci.

Hammond is undefeated in 12

professional fights but will probably face his biggest challenge yet when he enters the Narrabri ring as the main event on Saturday evening.

Cameron Hammond steps up against Sedat Tasci on Saturday

Cameron Hammond steps up against Sedat Tasci on Saturday

The fight this Saturday night at The Crossing Theatre

Mananger Matt Clark expects Cameron Hammond to turn on the style when faces Sedat Tasci in a battle of former Olympians this weekend.

Hammond defends his WBA Oceania welterweight crown against the teak tough Turk on David "Spike" Syphers' show at the Crossing Theatre in Narrabri, New South Wales and Clark believes the Moree favourite will once again underline his potential for the top.

Tasci is by far Hammond's best opponent to date. Now boxing out of Sydney, the 30-year-old represented Turkey at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and has only lost once in an eight year pro career.

"Without a doubt Sedat Tasci represents the toughest challenge Cameron has faced as a professional," Clark said. "Tasci is a rough, tough brawler who had a very distinguished amateur career himself. His sole loss was for the Australian title and it was as a result of a head clash and he was only slightly behind on the cards at the time.
