First-half goals from Hamilton’sDaniel Bird (15thminute) and Magic’s Kale Bradbery (37th) were the only joy for either side in a pulsating round 15 clash at Magic Park.

The result left Hamilton with the outright lead on 35 points but defending champions Edgeworth are just a point behind with a game in hand against Valentine after their home match on Saturday was washed out.

Magic stayed six points behind Olympic in third and appeared to pay a heavy price for the point.James Virgili, who provided the cut-back for Bradbery’s goal, dislocated his shoulder on half-time and was taken to hospital when initial attempts to put it back in failed. He will receive results of scans on Monday. Broadmeadow will also lose Michael Kantarovski and Shane Paul to suspension on yellow card accumulation.

In injury time,Hamilton’sJacob Bailey hit the crossbar with a header and Kale Bradbery did the same with a strike before Peter Haynes’ follow-up was saved.

Kane Goodchild, Hamilton’s two-goal hero last week against Edgeworth, provided the ball for Bird’s goal but missed three excellent chances. The best came in the 83rdminute when he shot well over an open goal from close range.

Hamilton coach MichaelBolch believed his side had more clear-cut chances andpoor execution in the front third was their only failure.

Bolch believed Edgeworth were now in control inthe minor premiership race but “if we don’t win it, we didn’t lose it today.

“Draws against Lambton, Maitland and Adamstown, they are the ones that come back and hurt you.I can’t fault them today on their effort and what we created. The end result just wasn’t there.”

Magic co-coach Robert Virgili said: “The way it’s looking, we’re probably going to meet each other again in the semis [second v third], and away we go again.They are still in the hunt for it, but realistically, we might have done Edgy a favour today.”

Magic believed James Virgili should have been awarded a penalty from a clash with Hamilton keeper Danny Ireland in first-half injury time but replays were inconclusive.
