Match Report: Nothing like a 9am kick off at Hazelbrook for what was essentially a must-win semi final for the lads against the team that finished 2nd above us on the table.

Unfortunately on the day the ball didn’t bounce our way and even with 80% possession and at least 6 shots to 1 in our favour (adjust these stats for coach bias accordingly!), we couldn’t snag the goal we needed to advance to the final.

But I couldn’t have been prouder of the way the boys played, the style of which encapsulating all the work they have put in over the last 6 months.

Arran, Cy and Lawson all defended strongly and all distributed the ball well from fullback, with Seko and Rhys showing again why they are arguably the best centre-half pairing in the comp.

Harry busted his gut in midfield with Lachlan Cassells and Zach providing plenty of quality ball in the playmaker roles, while Caleb and Marcus shared the massive task of closing down Hazelbrook’s gun #11, effectively negating his influence on the game.

Shane put in his usual 250% in shared winger duties with Will and Calvin, both of whom were unlucky not to score and threatened the defence with their speed, as they have done all year. Lachlan Monaco hunted down everything as striker, and was a yard/an inch off scoring on a few occasions (that ball just wasn’t bouncing right!).

Last but not least, Jos kept yet another clean sheet, which was just rewards for a great season in goals.

Thanks for a great season guys, and a big thanks to co-coach/manager extroadinare Graeme and all the parents for their support.
