THE coaches of New Norfolk's junior soccer teams report on last weekend's matches.
Under 6 Black played a good game in trying conditions of wind and rain against Moonah Primary. Stephanie Judges and Amber Rainbird each scored a goal. Special thanks to Cody’s mum Aileen Britten for the quick dash to buy some umbrellas!
Under 6 White played at home against New Norfolk Under 6 Red in more favourable weather conditions than other grounds experienced. Brady was lightning fast running the ground well and true to form Tristan was a great goal scorer for the team.
Under 7 Red had a great game against Metro at home before any rain fell. Nayte, Caitlin, Makayla, Daniel and J’Khobi all ran really hard and passed the ball around extremely well.
Under 7 Black had its game cancelled due to the weather.
Under 7 White got off to a great start with a four-goal first half but the game was then abandoned due to bad weather.
Under 8 had its game was cancelled due to the rain.
Under 9 had a win over Dominic Gold. It was a great friendly game with lots of running to keep warm. Goal kickers were Ostyn 3, Aidan and Maddy with her first goal for the season and there was great work in goals by Jacob and Luke. As always Under 9 should all be very proud of how they play as a team.
Under 10 defeated Glenorchy Knights at Tynwald Park. A special mention must go to Jorja for her great defensive work. Well done to goal scorers Blake 4, Jed 3, Levi 3, and Lane, and to all players for playing their positions with great skill. Exceptional game Under 10!
Under 11 played a brilliant game against Derwent United. Unfortunately it was a loss but great teamwork was displayed and special mentions go to Samantha and Jacob who worked tirelessly for possession of the ball the entire game. Everyone deserves a mention this game. Well done everyone. Special thanks to Jake Pullen for filling in as our ninth player.
Under 14C played early against Taroona at the Royal Hobart Showgrounds in atrocious weather. Despite this the team worked really well together and the effort showed on the scoreboard with the game ending in an 11-1 win for us. Goal scorers were Jayden Bartels 3, Daniel Groom 3, Jordan Bailey 2, Blake Priest, Joel White and Josh Russell. Well done team.
Under 14D won a dogged game against the Cygnet Sea Dragons at Huonville in cold, wet conditions. Goals were hard to come by but consistent effort going forward eventually saw goals scored by Josh Russell, Jakeb Rhodes, Ryan Browning and Sam Plunkett-Smith to win the game 4-0. Sam Plunkett-Smith, Jack Rose and Aynsley Daft played a great game and contributed strongly to the win.
