Local Soccer at Majors Creek

Whilst it started a little windy the day turned out to be great for playing community football at Majors Creek. A big thank you to the Majors Creek community for letting us play at your local ground and running the canteen. Another big thank you to the volunteers who assisted with setting up, running and packing up at the end of the games. The club (like most other sporting clubs) is community based, and relies on volunteers to make everything run. If everyone puts in a bit of effort, a few times a season, everything runs much more smoothly and the kids are the better for it.

There was plenty of effort shown in the Under 5's and 7's, with players rugged up against the wind. It wasn't long before jackets were taken off and the players were really getting stuck into it.

The Under 9's had the Masons losing to the Lions 3-0, whilst the Salvos defeated the Diggers 5-0. Best on ground in the Masons-Lions game were Ollie Allchin, Amy Clarke, Noah Hilhorst, Leroy Campbell-Davys, Toby Moller and Sarah Williams. The Salvos played strong defence across the field, passing continuously when moving into attack and coming away with the results. Best on ground in the Salvos-Diggers match were Arna Dixon, Hunter Gleeson, Fletcher Stanley, Bryce Carey, Nelson Sargent and Francine Magsino. 

The Under 11 Scorchers beat the Sixers 5-0, with best on ground going to Agus Putra Jaya, Kane Neate, Darcy Lyons, Willough Corby, Miah Gunderson and Abby Birkett. Best on ground for the Hurricanes in their match were Todd Hazelton, Lucy Baumann-Lionet, and Callaum Doyle. 

The Under 14 Roar returned to their winning ways by defeating the Heart 6-0. The game was fast, with some strong defence turning into creative attack for the Roar. Best on ground were Rhys Neate, Jeremy Ramm, Annabelle Jeffrey, Nick Asimus, Elizabeth Vella and Rosie Fanning. The other game between the Wanderers and Mariners was close, ending in a 3-3 draw. Best on ground were Harry Shoemark, Timothy Corcoran, Jessie Kay, Sam Daniher, Andrew Barr and Rita Marshall.

Capital Football Report

Both the Under 13 and Under 15 teams travelled to Woden Valley for this weekend’s games, unfortunately both coming up against very committed sides who were intent on getting the points. 

The Under 13's have let their strong start to the season slide a little, regressing a little from a quality passing style of game to more of a kick and chase mentality. It will be important for this team that they start concentrating on their style of play and team approach as we move into the second half of the season. There were periods where they looked good, but it wasn't enough, going down 2-1 in the last few minutes of the game. Best on ground for Palerang United were Nick Asimus, Louis Munnings and Angus Bunn. 

The Under 15 girls team were competitive for most of the game, with a few defensive lapses catching them out, the 5-2 result reflecting their lack of intensity at times. The girls are coming along though, and it's pleasing to see their willingness to improve their individual and team games. Best on ground were Monique Dheurle, Kaitlyn Ward and Danielle McMahon.
