U6A v Dundas United
The might under 6's came up against a well drilled Dundas team. We started off by scoring the a reverse goal from Aiden. And things didn't get much better from there. We all tried really hard but we were missing Levi (Mini Messi) Ryan did a good job against his school mates and Georgia put in some ofthe biggest tackles you will see from an U6. As usual the pairing of Amelia and Lucy ran and tackled well and Hamish's hard work paid off with a late goal. This weeks player of the match went to the ever improving Amelia for another improved effort in all aspects of the game.
U8 A V Dundas A
An overcast day didn’t stop everyone from turning up and playing well against a familiar old foe. They are starting to spread out with some good opportunities created. Although they ended up the wrong side of the score , our birthday boy Jack scored.
Player of the match for having an outstanding match in goal and on the field was Vincent.
U8B vs Dundas U8B
It seems last week’s Gala Day really helped the Under 8B’s as every player stepped up a notch,in particular Jack, Jimmy, Brendan and Hannah. Alexander and James both did well in goal thisweek. Once again Alex was in great form, covering all positions over the field and Rhys fought hard to score a goal. Gracie also did lots of great work this week earning her player of the match.
U9 v Castle Hill Black
This week the 9's played Castle Hill United Blacks.....
We were competitive in the first half and went in 2-0 down at half time.
We fell away in the second half with the final score 8-0.
Connor our goalie was busy for the whole game and he cleared the goal with excellent long kicks.
James tried hard in defence and Michelle had a great game in attack.
We didn't get many scoring opportunities and we were beaten by a very good side.
U11/5 v Dundas Win 4-1
As all the players new one another from school this was always going to be a friendly but competitive match. We probably expected an easier game with them at the bottom of the table but they stretched us all day. Our team really had to run hard and support each other to stay on top. It was nice to see the players passing the ball around and trying to control the game. As they keep practising and trying these skills out the team as a whole can only get better.
12/3's v Auburn district loss 2:1
Team had a good game passing the ball around.
Olivia scored our goal while Ethan helped keeping some goals out it, could have been worse. John played well in the backs holding the right hand side. Bailey came on off the bench played well in the midfield annoying the other team.
Well played everyone
14/3s Ermo V's Dundas Win 1-0
The opening 15min of this game, has to be the best of any team I have seen this year, the passing, movement and positional play was outstanding. Both teams fought hard with Ermo having the better field position and more shots, so at halftime the scores where nil/nil. After a halftime pep talk and a belly full of snakes, we came out and again peppered the Dundas goal, until finally one went in. In an even contest that went down to the wire we finally came off with a win. I am very pleased to see that you all in your own way are making a combined effort to pass and own the ball, what you all showed today was a very attractive game of soccer, but you cannot stop, these are the first steps, in the right direction. As always enjoy the win.
35/6's Ermo V's Kewpies Win 4-0
With another win ( 2 in a row) under our belts confidence is high. Against an under strength Kewpies side the play was all in their half but the safest place to be was in goals, the build up was good the final shots chasing the birds off the back fence. Richie took himself off the field (before we did) after a couple of passbacks to the keeper, Dennis kept the behind umpire busy with his misses over the post from in front (he follows the All Blacks) (bloody Kiwi). With George again suppling the steel for the backline the Kewpies never looked like scoring, he had again a little help from Matt (with two Ts thankyou) Frank and Paul. With Lorenzo and Ralph pepping the fence with their runs down the right side the Kewpie defence was kept busy getting the ball. With Albert again suppling light relief the game finally ended on a wet miserable Saturday.The referee came off the field and complained that he was wet, if he had listened to his wifes advise he would have taken his umbrella to the game. Lets make it three on the trot.
O35/4 v St Michaels Loss 0-2
The drizzly rain didn’t slow us down and we came out firing. We gave ourselves plentyof opportunities to score and had more ball possession in the first half. A goal againstthe run of play just increased our desire to win against one of the most whinging teams we have ever played. There was plenty of physical action which we don’t mind just don’tcomplain about it when it is returned with interest. The slippery ball and conditions made it difficult for our goalie Spud but we are still second lowest goals against in the comp. Whenwe meet time less talking more positive action will be needed.
