The Pambula Penguins have managed to keep ladder position despite some tough opposition over the weekend.

In reserves, the Penguins had a tough encounter with a determined Wolumla Tigers outfit where an early penalty gave the hosts the lead.

An unfortunate own-goal later in the half gave Wolumla a 2-0 edge before the break.

Officials said the second half was better with great back and forth between Kane Gardaya and Mark Brookes to score and make 2-1, but the Tigers were persistent to finish the game 3-1.

The Penguins retain second on the ladder on goal difference after Bemboka downed Merimbula 6-2 with the clubs battling for third and fourth respectively.

The Penguinettes battled out a 0-0 draw with the Tigresses ladies with the two clubs fighting for second place.

This weekend is a general bye with two rounds to play.
