[WSL Match Report] UNSW FC vs SD Raiders

UNSW FC vs SD Raiders
Sunday 17th April 2016
David Phillips Sports Field, Daceyville

U13’s

A solid win for the U13s today. We kept possession and built up play out of the back to set up some excellent scoring opportunities. A first goal to Sophie who fired the ball into the back of the net off a loose touch in the six yard box. The second goal was scored from a text-book run down the wing by April who crossed the ball in for Eleanor to place, out of reach of their keeper. A great team effort overall.

– Diana Organ, U13’s Coach

U15’s

Coming off a first round loss, the girls were keen to get their campaign up and running. After an even first 20 minutes the deadlock was broken after Juliet Williams drove one into the top left corner. The girls continued to create clear cut chances although couldn’t find the back of the net until Gabbie McAlpine put us 2-0 up before half time. We started off strong in the second half and soon Gabbie added another taking us to 3-0. Due to an issue with sprinklers the game was called midway through the second half and the result of the game is pending FNSW notification.

– Alex Nolan, U15’s Coach

U17’s

Game 2, and being the first home game of the season, coming off a strong first away win and high on confidence, the U17’s continued to improve scoring 10 goals that left SD Raiders somewhat shell shocked.
The girls combined well from the first whistle, passing and pressing at a high tempo and working hard for each other, wave after wave, down the flanks or up the middle, UNSW looked a team determined to secure the home games a fortress.
Credit to Juliet and Sinead from U15’s who helped strengthened our squad on the day adding some energy in the second half.

– Paul Carter, U17’s Coach

RESERVE AND FIRST GRADE

UNSW First Grade came out strong in the first half, putting away two goals. The first, a nice tap in by Georgia and the second from Danielle’s shot which hit the post and was put away by Rachelle. UNSW were dominating possession and making some good creative play. Unfortunately in the second half, Southern made some tactical subs and came out firing. They overwhelmed us with their attack and managed to get 3 goals. An unfortunate loss but we will definitely be able to get them next time.

Reserve grade continued their fine form with a solid 3-0 win. All goals were excellent, with credit going to Emily, Marissa and Alara. Well done to ressies, it was a great team performance overall. Lets keep the momentum going next week!

– Helen Orr, Women’s Captain

UNSW FC vs Mount Druitt Town Rangers
Sunday 10th April 2016
Popondetta Park

U13’s

The U13s faced an opponent that was more organised than when we beat them in preseason. We maintained possession for much of the game but in the end could not penetrate their compact defense. Much to work on to get the ball in the back of the net next week.

– Diana Organ, U13’s Coach

U15’s

After a strong pre-season the U15’s were keen to start the competition strong.
We started the game on the front foot and had numerous opportunities in the first 15 minutes of the game. After a mistake at the back we were soon down 0-1 but continued to dominate possession and a shot off the post from Lara Joffe was inches from going in just before half time. The girls came back out from the break and we continued to dominate possession but failed to convert our chances. With minutes before full-time a shot off the cross bar looked to bring us level but was ruled to not have crossed the line and the game finished 0-1. It was a strong battle from the girls in hot conditions.

– Alex Nolan, U15’s Coach

U17’s

The U17’s notched up a first win of the season with a ruthless 7-0 away win, having only 2 subs and being reduced to 1 after half time. On a very hot day they composed throughout the game combining well and putting 7 past an out of sorts Rangers team.
3 first half goals and 4 more in the second half. Onwards and upwards for this U17’s team.

– Paul Carter, U17’s Coach

Reserve and First Grade

The Women’s State League senior squad started the season strong with wins in Reserve Grade and First Grade against Mt Druitt at their home ground Poppondetta Park. Reserve grade dominated from the start, scoring three goals in the first half and two in the second thanks to Cassie, Marissa, Alara, Teresa, and Emily H. In First Grade, it was not so smooth sailing. UNSW were slow to start and two early goals were conceded in the first 20 minutes. Fortunately, the team was able to rally and brought it back to 2-2 by half time, thanks to goals from Rachelle and Amanda. In the second half first grade lifted even further and a brace from Georgia took the game out of reach for the home side. It was a great effort from all players in what looks to be a promising season.

– Helen Orr, Women’s Captain
