WITH just three rounds left for the junior and youth soccer, New Norfolk players are looking forward to their trophy day on September 7. This will be held at 11am in the rotunda at Tynwald Park and the committee looks forward to celebrating another good season of soccer with coaches, players and parents.
Under 6 Red played a great game in cold, rainy weather last Saturday. Campbell scored one goal while Tristan came close to his first goal of the season and Hunter showed great speed.
Under 6 Black played a good game against Bagdad in cold conditions at Bagdad, with Amber Rainbird scoring one goal in the second half and Lucy Gleeson playing her best game yet. An all-round good team effort.
Under 6 White was eager to play but the other team didn't turn up, which was a little disappointing for the kids.
Under 7 Red had a good game in the cold - only four on three against Holy Rosary. Nayte kicked a great goal and Makayla kicked four in a good effort. The defence and passing from Mia, Caitlin, Nayte and Makayla was great.
Under 7 Black played a tough but even game against Brighton Maroon. Congratulations to the goal scorers Hamish, Jacob White, Jacob Priest and a couple for Jack. Great defence and attack work, boys.
Under 7 White played great game against Metro despite the wet conditions. Great defence work by Josh, Ella, Cale and Jake kept Metro scoreless with Cale also kicking four goals.
Under 8 had a good game against Brighton in the rain. Abby and Luke saved some good goals. Cruez and Maiken were the goal scorers. A special mention to Cruez for being hit in the face with the ball and playing on.
Under 9 had a very muddy game. Although there were no goals kicked by our team there were some great saves made by Luke and Aidan in goal. Everyone worked really hard for the whole game, including Austin M who played his best game for the season. Well done kids and good luck mums getting that mud out...
Under 10's game was abandoned due to the weather.
Under 11 played their best game of the season in the pouring rain against the Glenorchy Knights. It nearly ended in a draw with the Knights scoring two very lucky goals in the final minutes. It was a brilliant effort considering we were down on players. Well done to Nick, Kasey, Lillie, Josh, Cody, Jacob, Jacob & AJ!
Under 14C played against a tough Beachside B team at Sandown Park. Although our team didn’t play their best it was pleasing to note that they never gave up either. The back line was kept busy throughout the game and Daniel Groom was all over the ground, taking the ball up forward to score his own goal and assist in another by Joel White.
Under 14D narrowly lost to Glenorchy Knights 5-4. It was a well-played game with good ball feeding done by the back line to the forwards with Sam Plunkett-Smith having a few good runs down the field. The game was played in very trying conditions at the Royal Showgrounds. Goals scorers were Josh Russell and Jakeb Rhodes one each and Campbell Evans with two. The game was unlucky not to be a draw - well done team.
