ALL but two of the New Norfolk Soccer Club's games were cancelled last weekend.
Under 14C played ladder-leaders Beachside E at Tynwald Park. The first half was an exciting, well played game for both teams but New Norfolk just had the edge. After the half-time break Beachside came out firing and New Norfolk was at a loss to stop them. The final scores were 5-3 in Beachside’s favour, with Daniel Groom scoring two goals and Josh Russell one. New Norfolk can play better and will be hoping to regain their confidence for the next game.
Under 14D played a very evenly-matched game with Cygnet Sea Dragons, ending in a 4-4 draw. Best players were Ryan Browning, Jack Rose, Britney White and Nathan Coleman who played to the best of their ability all game. Mention also goes to Adam Blackwell for another great stint in goals and for his courage and strength in shaking off a full body blow that left an opponent on the ground in an unavoidable tangle when both went for the ball. Goal-scorers were Braydon Wilson with two goals and Jack Rose and Josh Russell with one each.
