REPORTS from New Norfolk's junior soccer coaches:
Under 6 Red played a great game against Glenorchy. Thanks to Hemi and Shaun for helping us out. An excellent job by everyone and congratulations to Hemi and Ruby for their goals. Great teamwork.
Under 6 Black had a great game. Goal kickers: Hemi 2, captain Shaun 2 and Lucas 1.
Under 7 Red played a great game against Derwent United at Tynwald. We had some great goals scored by Tristan, Liam, Anthony and Brady. They are displaying some really great teamwork.
Under 7 Black played a good game at Brighton. It was the team’s first night match with all players showing good teamwork. Many goals were saved, with Mikayla Bailey playing well in defence and Gemma Whyte playing a good game up forward. Well done team.
Under 8 Red was far too strong for Brighton Gold in the fog at Tynwald. Some great footwork was displayed by all our boys who once again showed they are coming together as a team beautifully. Goals were scored by J'Khobi, Nayte, Jack and Jacob P, who all attacked the ball well. Hamish, Declan, Josh and Jacob W showed some great defensive work and constantly intercepted the ball and sent it back into our attacking half. Thanks to Josh who filled in for us, allowing us to have one sub. A great game and good teamwork.
Under 9 defeated Moonah 5-1 with some awesome teamwork. Well done to Maiken, Oliver, Caleb and Jenny on their goals. Luke stopped some good shots. Thanks to Ella and Abby for playing a half each for Moonah. Well done Caylin who is getting in there and giving it her best. We are all very proud of each of you.
Under 10 had a fantastic morning, winning 15-1 against Dominic Maroon. Our goalkeepers were kept shivering (Alex Mc and Alex B) due to some fantastic defence work by Alex G, Jacob and Ostyn. Our goal kickers were Aidan 4, Ostyn 4, Luke 2, Maddy 2 and Kiara 1. There were another two goals but due to the fog we didn't quite see whose boot they came off. With no subs the team played exceptionally well and ran hard the whole game. Well done everyone, we are so proud of each of you.
Under 11 defeated Brighton Maroon 7-1 at Brighton this morning. Another brilliant full team effort. Goal scorers were Brayden 3, Levi, Jacob, Ella, Dylan. Well done Under 11s.
Under 16 played Southern FC, going down 14-6. The boys showed great determination, having to play the first 15 minutes with only seven players. Then the whole team came together and started to put the pressure on with Jayden Bartels scoring five goals. Nathan Coleman also scored a goal. Great effort team - keep it up.
