Campbell started the game well, scoring the first goal for our team and was well supported by Jade who scored three goals and showed great ball control. Hunter demonstrated a powerful kicking style with this kick-ins and Tristan showed some great speed on the field.  A great team effort everyone. I am very proud of you all – well done team!” Coach Lisa Fraser.
