The return of the Orange and District Football Association has seen more than a few interesting results.
This winter season, all age competitions have been split into four divisions - A/B grade, C grade, 4th division and open women.
The standout in the top tier was the Waratah Wolfpack who demolished the Barnies United B side 8-0.
Elsewhere a visiting Cowra Eagles side got the better of Canobolas B 3-1, while Waratah United and Milthorpe (0-0), CYMS and Barnies United A (2-2) and Blayney B and Sainted United (0-0) all grabbed a point each.
C grade was an absolute goal fest. Barnies YADS stamped their authority on the competition early with a 9-0 defeat of Barnies United.
Ex-Services took care of Blayney C to a tune of 5-1, while Cowra defeated Canobolas C 3-1. In what was the match of the round, CYMS ORE narrowly edged out club rivals CYMS WSBG 5-4.
Finally in the fourth division there was just the one game played.
It was Cudal who came out on top against Barnies Brighouse 6-0. The Waratah FC match against Barnies Denley was deferred due to a lack of referees available, while Kinross 2nds had the bye.
But that wasn't the only play on the park over the weekend.
Orange played host for a set of Country Cousins Tour games against a visiting Lindfield FC.
An ODFA U13 girls representative team, along with the U11s girls representative team played games against the touring Sydney sides.
ODFA secretary Brett Hazzard said of the event: "The girls played a number of close competitive games against each other during Saturday and Sunday, with only a goal or two in each game.
"Lindfield also bought along a number of boys teams to play the ODFA boys club and representative teams.
"There was great friendship between all the teams, with Lindfield also getting around to visit many tourist spots in the district while they were here."
Lindfield were delighted by the event as well, taking to Facebook to write: "Teams had some wins, some losses and a whole lot of fun.
"Some players showed true blue stamina and team spirit playing four games back to back - they gave it their all and were totally exhausted at the end, but high on football fever."
