Last weekends of soccer coming up

THE New Norfolk Soccer Club is going to be very busy over the next two weekends. Tomorrow (August 30) is the NNSC/Northern Suburbs Junior Soccer Association Gala Day and everyone is invited to come along to watch the juniors play their last games of the season.

The following Saturday (September 6), is the New Norfolk Soccer Club Trophy Day at the rotunda at Tynwald Park, starting at 11am.

Under 6 Red played a great game against Holy Rosary last weekend, ending with a draw. Well done and great teamwork.

Under 6 Black was defeated by Metro, 3-2. Goal kickers were Hemi and Zach, while Shaun, Vincent, Lewis, Lucas and James all played well.  Well done boys.

Under 7 Red had a great game at home against Holy Rosary, scoring a massive nine goals in a fantastic team effort.

Under 7 Black played Holy Rosary and it was another great game by the whole team. Well done to Tristan Nicholson on playing two games on the day as he filled in for his brother’s team. With only one game to go, our team has improved out of sight this season. Well done guys!

Under 8 Red was too strong for Metro on a beautiful morning for soccer at Metro's home ground. It was a whole team effort with the boys once again showing some great skills with excellent passing. J'Khobi with two goals and Jack with one showed great footwork and speed. Declan kicked a goal almost from the centre and Tristan scored a great goal over the goalie's head. Nayte and Hamish tried hard all game in defence and attack. Our goalie for the day was Jacob and he did a fantastic job, saving a lot of goals. Thanks to Tristan for helping us out. Well done team.

Under 8 Black played a fantastic game against a strong Glenorchy Knights team, with great goal work from Joshua and Caylin, and a fantastic goal from Caitlin. Thank you to Caylin and Jack for subbing, with Jack already playing a game at Metro. There was great defence work from Jess with support from Jacob, Astrid, Mia and Mikayla playing all over the ground. Well done guys, we are so proud of the way the whole team has improved.

Under 9 had a bye.

Under 10 played an amazing game against Glenorchy Knights with the final score being 4-1 in our favour. Our goalies Alex Mc and Luke were kept extremely busy and were fantastic with all their saves. Brock, Alex G and Alex B were kept very busy in defence and were a great support to our goalies. Kiara, Maddy and Aidan ran hard all game through the middle and were a great support to Jacob who scored two goals, and Ostyn and Freya who scored a goal each. The sportsmanship was outstanding and the enthusiasm and encouragement towards team mates is something to be very proud of. Well done to Jason and Dallas on coaching and umpiring.

Under 11 defeated Bagdad 9-0 at Bagdad. Goal-scorers Jed, Levi and Brayden kicked three each. Great work by goalies Ella and Dylan and well done to Jacob, Blake, Lane, Montanna and Lucy for helping Bagdad with its undermanned side. Zoe and Josh played another great game.

Under 14 played a great game against Uni, who are second on the ladder, with a 3-all draw. Our goals were kicked by Braydan Wilson, Sam Plunkett-Smith and Ryan Browning. New Norfolk played a fierce game with many of our players showing great skills. Stand-out players in this game were Sam and Jack Rose. The players throughout the season have greatly improved on their footwork and skill level and have been a joy to watch, with a great team effort during the year. Well done.

Under 16 was defeated by Glenorchy Knights 10-2. Josh Calahan scored a goal in the early minutes of the first half and Jordan  Bailey was able to convert a penalty in the second half. A great game played well by all the boys.

Seniors - It was the last home game of the season for the Division 4 team, with the Peninsula Pirates making the trip up to Tynwald Park from Nubeena. The start of the match showed just how much both sides have improved this year as both defences stood strong. Eventually Ollie Chaplin put New Norfolk in front from a ball that just wouldn't go in the net until he got a boot to it. The Pirates then showed that despite being on the bottom of the table they had some good skills and managed to kick two fairly quick goals to go into half time 2-1 up. The second half saw a much more focused Panthers side and it didn't take long for a fresh-legged Colin Banks to make an impact and shortly after kicked a great goal to level the scores. Both teams had a number of opportunities that went begging but then Bob Tolputt put in a cross that found Luke Slater in the goal box and he slotted it into the back of the net. Many more chances came and went but New Norfolk came out victors with a 3-2 win. The final game for the season is away against Metro at Chigwell on Sunday at 2.30pm. Come along and support the team

Under 6 Red played a great game against Moonah. The result was a loss but Jake and Anna showed some great teamwork and Ruby and Tyler were great in goals.

Under 6 Black defeated an undermanned Brighton Black side. There was good sportsmanship from James, Vincent, Lucas and Zac, while Hemi and Vincent scored a goal each and Shaun and Lewis played well.

Under 7 Red had a great game against Bagdad. Special mentions go to Anothony, Brady, Tristan and Lily for all playing a half a game for an undermanned Bagdad.  Brady scored a goal for Bagdad. New Norfolk's goals were scored by Liam, Anthony and Joel.

Under 7 Black played Brighton Yellow at Tynwald Park for another great game. It was an outstanding effort by the whole team, with a special mention to Rodney Browning on a great goal. Well done team!

Under 8 Red played a hard game against a very good team. With J’Khobi going off injured for a  period, it left New Norfolk short for about 10 minutes. He then returned to the ground and finished the game strongly. Thanks to Joshua for subbing.  Hamish, Jacob White, Nayte, Declan and Jacob Priest all tried very hard.

Under 8 Black played a fantastic game against Dominic. Congratulations to Jacob for scoring so many great goals. All played well with and with the team being two players short they were excited but tired! There was great goal-keeping by Joshua and Mikayla while Mia and Jess worked hard. Well done.

Under 9 played a skilled Glenorchy Knights who kept New Norfolk scoreless. Luke Pelham played his best game ever and there were some great saves in goals by Oliver Coulson and Maiken Lee.  Great teamwork was displayed by Abby Beven, Cruez Harwood, Jennifer Pearce, Oliver Coulson and Caleb Linell. Well done guys, you all gave it your best.

Under 10 had a good win against Derwent United, 10-1.  Goal scorers were Jacob 4, Luke 2, Aidan 2, Maddy 1 and a massive kick from the half line into the goal square by Ostyn was helped over the line by Brock for a great joint goal.  Goalkeepers were Alec McM and Luke.  Alex G, Kiara and Alex B were very unlucky not to score a goal each with their kicks going either side of the goal posts.  Great sharing of the ball and encouraging your team mates.  Well done team.

Under 11 defeated Dominic 5-4 at Dominic. It was an impressive game throughout, with a special mention to Dylan for his goalie efforts. Goal scorers were Jed 4 and Levi.  Apologies to Ella for not reporting her goal in the previous week's game always plays an exceptional game.

Under 16 played its best team game, losing only by one goal to Huonville, 3-2.  The team worked hard all game, pushing forward continuously and eventually Josh Calahan slotted a goal. Josh Russell also managed to convert.  A fantastic effort from all the team.

Seniors Division 4 played a tight game at Olinda Grove against Uni.  Uni opened the scoring early but Ollie Chaplin evened things up quickly. Both teams scored again soon after that, with Luke Slater using his height to head a ball in and Colin Banks managed to put the Panthers up 3-2 just before half time. Thomas Sheppard opened up the scoring for the second half with a ball from the 18m box that deflected off a defender and hit the back of the net.  The game slowed in the second half but Uni managed to slot in two more goals to give New Norfolk its first draw for the year. Once again the team showed it can play some good football even when facing the higher ranked teams.
