Match Report: It was so good to be back home at Knapsack for our game against Henry Lawson.

Knapsack is looking magnificent after the tireless efforts of Dave and the committee to get the fields up to such a high standard, for the long term. Many thanks also to Sandy for her brilliant juggling of training spaces while Knapsack was out of commission. We can’t thank you all enough!

The boys were excited about being back on home turf (literally) and were definitely up for a determined effort this week.

We were off to a flying start through a very early fine goal from “Captain” Gus. We settled into our passing game extremely well and repelled some threatening attacks from Henry Lawson. Through fine team football, goals soon followed to Aidan, Heath, Gus again, a super shot from a fair distance out from Chris and then another to Heath. This gave us a half time lead of 6 nil with some near misses and some fine keeping from Robbie keeping a clean sheet.

We maintained momentum in the second half with goals to “Scooooobes”, Robbie who expertly slotted the ball home from the Penalty spot, Will Foreman and Lachlan Bowe off a fine corner from “Cassowary”. 8 different players scoring goals was a fine effort indeed and demonstrates the strength we have across the park.

The defence remained solid and disciplined to keep Henry Lawson at bay despite some strong attacking moves through their speedy forwards.

Lachlan “Cassowary” Jones and especially Sean “but not me” Higgins were unlucky not to capitalise on some well created chances.

Man of the Match goes to Will Foreman who was strong and determined in defense and distributed fine ball to his team mates. Gus had his finest game for a while and Heath was also a consistent threat.

Whilst the end result was perhaps not an indication of the true strength of the opposition, and the good football they played at times, it was great to see the boys make the most of their chances.
