Charlestown and Broadmeadow have moved on quickly and are not lodging formal complaints after their dramatic encounter on and off the pitch on Sunday.
The Blues were angry at time-wasting tactics from the Broadmeadow bench and ball boy, who left the field in tears after exchanges late in the game with Magic up 1-0.
Magic were fuming about off-the-ball contact, which was not caught on BarTV footage, between Blues defender Ljubo Milicevic and Broadmeadow’s Jeremy Wilson. An on-field verbal battle ensued between Milicevic and the Magic physio.
Broadmeadow president Steve Foteff, though, said the clubs dealt with the issues on Sunday and had moved on.
Blues coach David Tanchevski said his club had passed on their concerns to Foteff and spoken to the ball boy’s father.
** Charlestown drew on Monday perhaps the most interesting FFA Cup round four clash for May 1-3.
They are away to interdistrict club Hamilton Azzurri in their first Cup test of 2018.
Charlestown are a merging of Highfields Azzurri and Charlestown United. It came after Azzurri’s exclusion from the revamped top Northern NSW division in 2009.
Hamilton have ignited the banter on social media about who are the real Azzurri.
Other games are (home teams first): Edgeworth v Singleton, Wallsend v Broadmeadow, Lambton Jaffas v South Cardiff, Kahibah v Hamilton Olympic, Raymond Terrace v Garden Suburb, Cardiff City v Cessnock, Swansea v Thornton, Lake Macquarie v Maitland, Toronto Awaba v Adamstown and Dudley Redhead Seniors v Valentine.
Weston have the bye.
