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