Player of the Match: Saxon

Match Report: It was a beautiful morning at Jamison Park 10am Saturday morning. The field was clearly chopped up and uneven due to persistent wet weather conditions over the past couple of months. The team warmed up well and developed a good understanding of how the ball moved on the pitch giving them a clear advantage at game time.

Strong clean passing and control was the theme of the day with some creative play evident throughout the game. Saxon delivered the ball well into great space on several occasions positioning the forwards well for goal scoring opportunities. Max found the net successfully scoring a well earned hat-trick on the day whilst Saxon scored twice, once top corner whilst under pressure, and the second with speed through the central defensive area finishing low and well controlled with several players in pursuit.

Kai ran the team out and controlled the mid-field with stability providing direction whilst setting the tempo. Kaleb Lewis made several pin point curved passes from goal kicks direct to the feet of Rhys whom demonstrated an exceptional first touch on several occasions. Zac rifle passed a beautiful short corner with precision to Caleb Maynard whom had an exemplary game despite carrying an ankle injury.

Lachlan Cassels played both forward and defensive positions with authority and skill, demonstrating his exceptional skills and foresight on and off the ball whilst Lachlan Ferguson provided the foundation as central defender making strong runs into attacking positions and returning to position with ease.

Lachlan Monaco was a constant threat offering many attacking runs with speed and Dan Oakey was rock solid in goals owning the area with defensive charges and clearances. Connor kept the opponents out with 100% effort and never gave up under pressure setting a great example for his team mates.

Overall the team played with unity and starting to hold positions tightly, forcing opponents into sideline positions. Most importantly, as the team develops so do the friendships, respect and support amongst the players.

Well done team! A very proud coach.
