The first game of the 2013 season saw the rain finally clear for a beautiful Saturday morning down at Bonnet Bay.
We’ve greeted a few new faces to our team this year, and I was really happy with how well everyone gelled on the park, especially our passing game, which has improved a lot.
Both teams had a lot of early chances, with Kory being a stand-out with his speed, skills and shots on goal, and lucky for us we had Tahlia as goal keeper – she came up with 3 or 4 of the best saves we’ve ever seen! Other notable mentions go to Oscar, who showed good leadership and ball skills, Maliya scoring her first ever goal (woo-hoo!!) after some good follow up work, and Raiden also bagging a goal to go with his tally from last year. Our defenders and mid-field were relaible as always, with Maddy & Lucy running all day, and Brooke, Lauren & Kate all making solid contributions, despite some injuries and bumps & bruises.
Kory was awarded player of the week, and while they just got us in the end, i’m still proud of everyone, and want us to keep improving for next week back at home against Bosco at 9:40am.
