Great games in chilly conditions last weekend

Break time for New Norfolk Under 7 Black.
Under 6 Red played Derwent and put in a good team effort. Well done to Jake Smith for a goal from the centre and to Ruby, Noah and Anna for great team work.

Under 6 Black put in a great effort on a very cold morning, with a goal scored by Lucas. Well done boys.

Under 7 Red won in a fantastic effort against Holy Rosary at Holy Rosary. A top effort by Tristan for his goal kicking.

Under 7 Black played an awesome game versus Moonah in freezing conditions at Tynwald Park. A special mention to Oliver Rhodes for scoring his first ever goal. Amber Rainbird, Rodney Browning and Tristan Nicholson each scored a goal and well done to Lucy Gleeson who played one of her best games. Keep up the good work team.

Under 8 Red took on Glenorchy in freezing conditions. Despite being undermanned there was some great team work from our boys with Jack and Hamish scoring great goals from excellent play. Jacob Priest, Nayte and Declan all attacked the ball well. Special thanks to Glenorchy for lending us a player to serve as our goalie for each half.

Under 8 Black played a very hard game with only six players and no subs and they did a great job once again. Jack was a standout after playing in the Red team earlier. Only minutes into the game he was hit in the face with a very fast hard ball but his courage saw him come back on the ground after a very short break and he scored a great goal. Josh saved some great goal attempts from Brighton and stayed in goals the whole game. Mikayla, Astrid, Mia and Jess also tried very hard.

Under 9 had a fast-paced game against Dominic with Cruez being our only goal scorer for the day. Well done to Maiken and Oliver for some great kicking. Congratulations to every member of the team for their wonderful sportsmanship under trying conditions. Well done all of you!

Under 10 had a win against Holy Rosary. Goal kickers were Maddy, Alex Bourne, Ostyn, Alex McMillan and Brock (2). There was great defence work from goalies Luke and Alex Bourne, who were well backed up by Aidan, Alex Gunn and Jacob in defence.  Special mention to Kiara, Alex McMillan, Freya and Ostyn who all played a half for Holy Rosary with Ostyn kicking their only goal.  Well done everyone.

Under 11 defeated Bagdad 3-2 in -2C temperatures at Bagdad on Saturday. Another fantastic team effort with Lane, Levi and Brayden being this weeks goal scorers.

Under 14 lost to Tilford Zebras 3-0 but the scoreline didn’t reflect the closeness of the game. A few good stops in the goals kept the score down. New Norfolk had some long score attempts and if they had converted we would have had a much closer game on our hands. Good luck for next week team!

Under 16 lost to Glenorchy Knights at the Showgrounds. The team showed great commitment in the first half, pushing forward on numerous occasions and was unlucky not to convert a few more goals. Jacob George played hard in defence and Jordan Bailey was unlucky not to convert a cross pass. Liam Kalbfell scored our only goal from an accurate penalty shot.

Dion Barnhoorn played very well
for New Norfolk last weekend.
Seniors - Division 4 lost at home 2-1 against University. New Norfolk started brightly and took the lead through Ollie Chaplin after a defence-splitting pass from Tom Sheppard. Despite being completely outplayed, University managed to scrape in an equalizer before half time.

In the second half New Norfolk continued to take the game to Uni but just couldn’t put the ball in the net and with 15 minutes remaining lost a sucker-punch goal on the counter. The team has a long road trip to take on the Peninsula Pirates at Nubeena at 12.30pm this Sunday, June 8.
