New Norfolk junior soccer
THE coaches of New Norfolk's junior soccer teams report on last weekend's matches.
Under 6 Black: Played Metro Blue on Friday night. It was a good game by all players with great improvement from Rodney and Lucy.
Under 7 Red: Played at home against Bagdad. Nayte and Daniel sent lots of strong kicks forward, Makalya and J'Khobi were great in defence and Mia played a fantastic first game.
Under 7 White: Played a good game against New Norfolk U7 Black, showing great team work with some good sharing of the ball and helping each other out.
Under 8: Played against Holy Rosary at Tynwald Park with great defence and ball skills and lots of sharing of the ball. Special mention to Cruez and Luke on a great game.
Under 9: Had a draw this morning 2-2 against Brighton Maroon. A massive goal kicked by Jacob and a very clever goal kicked by Aidan, fantastic saves in the goals by Alex McMillan and Alex Bourne, a very fast and competitive game by both sides. Well done New Norfolk.
Under 10: Played Brighton White at Tynwald on Saturday morning. A great team effort with all children coming out fired up in the second half. Special mention to Levi for his efforts in getting around the competition. Well done New Norfolk.
Under 14D: Played Kingborough Lions at Tynwald Park on Saturday, coming away with a 8-0 win. I lost track of the goal scorers as there were a few of them and the whole team played very well so I really can’t highlight any one player but mention must be made about Adam Blackwell’s great work in goals. Well done team.
Under 14C: Played Beachside B at Tynwald Park on Saturday morning, ending in a 2-2 draw after an exciting game. Beachside are always a tough team to play against but our team were well up to the challenge. Goal scorers again this week were Jordan Bailey and Josh Russell with Josh displaying a typical soccer/football players excitement after goaling while Jordan’s goal was as hard as a shot out of a gun! Tom Fulton was sensational as goalkeeper, defending off many shots at goal. Well done team.
