Match Report U9 Hawks – 17-07-2010





Springwood (White)



Match Report

For the first time in a long time, we had our full team of 8 players!  Yeeaaahhhh! Our opponents were a strong team, who effected a defeat when we last played, so expectations were for a good game to be had, on a sunny Saturday morn in the mid-Mountains.  And a good game it was!  Nathan Gregory was brilliant in goals, and enjoyed playing a full game in that role; there were some incredible saves for a U9 player, that brought many an applause from the crowd.  He was helped in defence by his brother, Jarred, and Lachlan Yabsley (playing his first game in quite a while – nice to see you back, Lachie).  Our mid-fielders (Sasha Duetoft, Christian Giles, Drew Hamilton) were busy as ever, helping our defenders, helping our strikers. Drew was "everywhere", Christian was passing as well as he ever has and Sasha was pleased with the footwork skills he displayed during the game.  Our strikers (Jacob Bishop, Zac Okabe) made some great attempts at goal; really testing the Springwood keepers.  One stuck in the first half (courtesy of Zac) and the back of the net wasn’t touched again, unfortunately.  When we were attacking the oppositions goals, the great teamwork started in mid-field, with players looking to pass to someone who was free.  Overall, another excellent game from the boys, who thrive when playing good teams.
