MYRTLEFORD’S Cup hoodoo continues.
Despite a huge contingent of supporters, up to five and six-deep along the sidelines of Albury’s Jelbart Park, the Savoys were again relegated to runner-up in the final game of the year – this time after almost 2½ hours on the pitch and ultimately a penalty shoot-out.
It came at the end of 90 minutes of regular time and a further 20 minutes of golden goal that saw the score deadlocked at 1-1 with Wangaratta in sapping 23 degree heat.
In the end five set shots from the penalty spot decided the contest.
It is the fourth time in a decade the club has been denied in soccer’s grand final and sixth in almost four decades of playing in the Albury Wodonga Football Association.
Myrtleford remains without the Cup ever having graced its trophy cabinet.
