The high point of 1977 was our trip to Goulburn in our first encounter in the Tasman Cup. The team played exceptionally well, holding the strong Mulwaree team to nil all at half time. In fact, it could have been 1-0 in our favour since at one stage, in a skirmish in front of our goulmouth, all Dennis Pianca hd to do was get a foot to the ball.
The second half saw Mulwaree put 3 goals, and though Chook came close on a number of occasions, we could only muster one goal, that being a fine effort from young Scott Leckner.
Final score was 3-1. A fine effort, considering our team was deprived of two of our players, dut to the fact that the University Shield was played the same day at home.
Another highlight(???) of the year was the Queanbeyan game where some sort of record was established when Queanbeyan scored 14 lucky goals in about 45 minutes.
