REPORTS from the New Norfolk Soccer Club coaches.
Under 6 Red – game cancelled.
Under 6 Black drewing with Glenorchy Knights Gold and was unlucky not to win with captain Lucas, Vincent, Lewis and James all nearly scoring numerous times. Goals were scored by Hemi (3) and Shaun. Very proud of the boys.
Under 7 Red played Under 7 Black. It was a great fast-paced game with all the kids showing fantastic foot work. Our goal scorers were Tristan, Liam, Anthony and Brady.
Under 7 Black played Under 7 Red.
Under 8 Red had a close game with Dominic with all players playing a role in a hard-fought game. Joshua and Jack finished off some great team work to score a goal each. A big thank you to Caylin who filled in as goalkeeper in the first half and saved a number of attempts. A great team effort from the whole team.
Under 8 Black played a great game against Bagdad, with all players trying hard. Thanks once again to Jack for subbing and to Caylin for her great goal work in the first half. Caylin, Jack and Joshua did well after already playing a game prior to ours, while Jacob, Jess, Mikayla and Mia founding much of the ball as they chased it up all through the game. Great effort.
Under 9 – had a bye.
Under 10 had a 2-1 win over Glenorchy Knights 2-1 in a great morning for soccer. A huge thank you to Abby from the Under 9s for playing a fantastic game with us. Jacob kicked one of the goals and our second was from a corner kick-in by Ostyn. Both teams played a great fast game. Well done Brock, Luke, Kiara across the back and Alex Mc and Alex G in the goals and Aidan and Abby up forward. All played really well as a team, with some massive kicks from all players. Well done.
Under 11 drew with Bagdad 3-all at Tynwald Park. A well contested game with all players fighting hard throughout. Goal scorers were Brayden, Levi and Jacob, and exceptional efforts by goal keeper Jed.
Under 14 played against Glenorchy Knights and came to a draw, 3-all.
Under 16 went down 11-0 to tough opponent Glenorchy Knights. Tom and Liam worked tirelessly in goals but Glenorchy was too fast and accurate. Sam and Jacob George defended hard throughout the game, well done boys. Tayla, Nathan, Sam, Jack and Jacob Rhodes did well to help, playing back-to-back games.
Seniors Division 4 had its second game cancelled in a fortnight, this time due to ground conditions.
