Panthers back on winners list

NEW Norfolk's Division 4 senior side got back to its winning ways with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Peninsula Pirates at Nubeena on Sunday. Right from the kick off, New Norfolk went straight on the attack and created many opportunities but were caught offside a few times before taking the lead through Ollie Chaplin.

The team didn't take the foot off the pedal and kept piling on the pressure and were rewarded with three more goals. Chaplin converted them all after some excellent build-up play. Next New Norfolk takes on the talented Metro side at Tynwald on Sunday 2.30pm. Come on down and support your local team.

Under 6 Red played a great game on wet grounds to beat Metro by eight goals. Well done to Ruby Rainbird for her goal and a big thanks to Metro for lending us Kaiden who played really well. Good team work from Noah, Jake and Anna.

Under 6 Black had a good win. Special mentions go to Vincent and Zac for helping out the opposition and to Lucas for showing great effort. Goal scorers were Hemi 3, Shaun 3, James 2.

Under 7 Red played a very fast paced game against Brighton at Tynwald.  Liam kicked two goals for the team while Brady is showing some really great defence play and he also kicked a goal.

Under 7 Black had a good win with great improvement from the whole team. An extra-special mention goes to Mikayla Baily for scoring all four goals. Well done team, keep up the great work.

Under 8 Red had a great game against Dominic Yellow. The boys put into action the skills and plays they've been practicing in training, working as a team to setup and score. Well done to our goalies J'Khobi and Josh, while Declan and Hamish were on fire. Jacob P made a good forward attack in the second half and our other attacks and goal scorers were J'khobi, Josh, Nayte and Jack. The team spirit in the Under 8s is amazing as the kids often play two games to fill the teams. Well done!

Under 8 Black played another hard game against Metro. Thanks to J’Khobi, Jack, Hamish and Declan for filling in after playing their own game.  There was a great goal to J’Khobi and great work in goals by Joshua and Jack, while Mikayla, Caitlan, Astrid and Mia all had a good game. The score doesn't matter as long as you are having fun and learning for when it matters.

Under 9 – Cancelled.

Under 10 went down to Brighton Maroon 3-1 but the score doesn't represent the hard fought game. There were amazing saves in the goals by Alex Mc and Luke, and Brighton’s goalies were fantastic also. Kiara was our goal-scorer in a very fast paced game with both sides running hard all game. Well done everyone, you played really well.

Under 11 – Cancelled.

Under 14 – Cancelled.

Under 16 saw its persistence and fantastic team work rewarded with its first win of the season, 3-2 against Kingborough. Despite having low player numbers, all worked extremely hard throughout. Goal scorers were Jayden Bartel 2 and Josh Russell. Good luck this weekend!
