Player of the Match: Alex Crambrook

Match Report: A cold afternoon kick off against a tough opponent. Goalkeeper Eli was out sick and with the two regular keepers from the 15.2’s and 16.2’s unavailable, Matt from the 16.2’s kindly offered to help out

We started positively and created a couple of good early chances – Aidy put Ethan away to bore down on goal but the keeper saved well 1on1. Ash got to the bye line and put a great cross in that travelled untouched across the six yard box

We defended well, limiting RSL to a few long range shots which Matt held well. Sam and Max both made a couple of forward attacking runs from right and left back respectively – Sam firing a super cross come shot across the face of the goal. Mid way through through the first half, Millsy sent a long free kick into the box and it fell to Harry who swivelled and volleyed in a high ball over the keeper showing great technical skills in doing so. Harry scoring against his former team mates

The second was a real arm wrestle – RSL’s midfield started to win the battle and pushed us back. There were no clear cut chances as our defensive line of Millsy, Alex Win, Max and Sam as well as central defensive players Jake, Aidy and Martin worked hard to protect Matt. Matt continued to hold any long range efforts and then clear early to set Ethan away, ably supported by Damo and Alex Crambrook who both had excellent games today

We had two good chances to score – Ethan cutting in the box and hitting it well with his left foot – keeper beaten but the ball hit the post. Secondly, a long throw into the box from Jake was flicked on by Ethan and Damo snuck in ahead of the defender to head home – Ethan adjudged to have committed a foul when challenging for the ball

Coach’s player of the match to Alex Crambrook who defended stoutly in the first half – heading balls he’d much rather not! In the second half Alex was a real threat down the left and helped out in the midfield scrap

A great team performance and we look forward to playing RSL again this Thursday at home in the Nepean Cup
