Match Report

Blue Mountains under 9 met a strong Claremont Meadows team in an exciting end to end game at Claremont Meadows. B.M. opened the scoring with a well taken goal by Eliza but Claremont Meadows were quick to reply to even the score. Will in goal prevented another but a second followed shortly after. Mitchell and Regan mounted a strong attack down the right wing but C.M counter attacked and were again thwarted by Will in goal. Again B.M. attacked this time with Jame Mitchell and Eliza combining well together C. M. counter attacked again with Will covering goal well. An attack by Eliza threatened the C.M. goal but C.M. replied with another goal. Arianne tackled solidly in midfield but C.M. scored another before half time; the score at half time was 4-1 to the home team.

In the second half Blue Mountains consistently managed to catch the C.M forwards offside.. The B.M defence became more solid in the second half with good defending by Thomas and great chasing by Zac; Ben also kicked clear strongly. Daniel in goal made several impressive saves and was unlucky after one when C.M. collected the loose ball to score. Mitchell came within a whisker of a second goal after a great run. C.M. scored once more after a goalmouth skirmish. C.M. are a skilful and powerful team and despite the score line it was a hard fought competitive match with B.M showing great spirit and increasing confidence.
