In a game where both teams were undermanned, we were again able to get across the line though some dogged and tenacious efforts by all.
A ripper finish by Charlotte Laird in the dying minutes sees her aspirations of the league golden boot still well and truly alive.
Nearing the halfway point of the season we are 9 and 1. Striving for greatness.
This week we traveled to Wodonga for a clash against Twin City. We started well and found ourselves on top. Our efforts were rewarded as Seth converted from a cross by 2023 debutant Brodie. After they made a few subs we started to fade away and they found themselves an equaliser after a clinical through ball down their left side. We do tend to struggle in the second half and it showed when Twin City hit the front and Alonso found himself sent off after two consecutive yellow cards. This loss keeps us in sixth as we play against title contenders Wodonga Diamonds next week.
Over 35s Men
With 26 registered players we barely scraped together a team to face the strong Twin City outfit. Thanks to Jon Coch for providing us with one sub as he managed to play both Div.2 Men and O35s at the same time!
Our 3rd back up keeper was also not available and we needed someone to put their hand up to jump in goals for us. Lee bravely did, knowing for sure he would have plenty to do.
Lee was outstanding and kept the final score to a very respectable level. Pulling off save after save, shots from everywhere and also taking the ball off their strikers feet in one on ones.
The team we had all worked hard for each other and our 1-5-4-1 system frustrated Twin City and they found it hard to break us down all game. We got caught out a few times with their strikers blistering pace and that opened us up for them to take advantage and score. With them getting a late goal on half time we went to the break 3 nil down. Will still managed to create enough chances in the first half and we should have scored at least one.
The second half was a similar battle. Twin City was more relaxed and patient. We didn’t stop playing, defending and attacking when we could and we did attack and create more chances. Scotty received the ball outside their box, turned back inside and curled a ripper into the top right corner leaving their keeper planted and just admiring the shot as it sailed past him.
The Final score was a 5-1 defeat. No shame in that result. It was great to play with “All of my people, nah nah nah”!
Under 17 girls V Diamonds won 1 nil.
On a cold chilly morning the girls were ready to play! The girls were passing the ball around well and creating some fantastic scoring chances. Daisy was working hard in the midfield alongside Eve who was making great runs and Rylee who was bringing strength to the game. Up front Elissa, Mya, Pania and Alice were all working hard in very cold conditions to try and put the ball past the Diamonds Keeper. Our defenders were super strong with nothing getting through them with Captain Alex and Sienna working well with Bianca and Taria to cover the back line. Sophie kept a clean sheet and was kept to very minimal touches on the ball. MJ stepped into the team today as we had a few girls away and played really well driving the ball forward whenever she got a chance. At half time we knew it was going to take one goal and Rylee put a beautiful cross into the box and Pania found the back of the net with a cracking goal and that’s how the game finished up with a 1 nil win! A fantastic team effort on a very cold, wet morning, we look forward and will play them again next week.
lost 5-1 to TCW
Again heavily undermanned through injury and unavailability, the boys did themselves proud for effort alone.
A couple of late goals didn’t reflect the result as we missed opportunities. Most of the TCW lineup are top age and played Div 2 men later in the day.
A great effort by the older crew in Aydan, Dustin and Josh to fly the flag, and thanks again to those 12/13 year olds, Taj, Julien, Archer and JB for playing way above their mark so we can get a game going.
