U13-14s Girls - MATCH REPORT
Beaumaris vs Seaford United
FFV catch up round week which meant that we are the lucky few that gets to play this weekend. Our U13-14s Girl journeyed down the highway and enjoyed the fine facilities at North Seaford Reserve. Its being a while since we met the Tigers and as my weathered mind can recall, spoils have been shared between the two outfits in previous encounters.
With a couple of notable “outs”, we called up young Ruby to fill in a midfield role for today. Coach Allison settled on 4-3-3 formation and gave out the final instructions to the team; he commanded the girls to use the wide areas and keep the ball moving as shown at Tuesday training session by Senior Coach Dannielle.
The conditions at kick off were less than ideal, mums started to ask, “Why am a here again?” - the breeze coming of the Frankston end of the ground had Dachshund bite about it (you had to be there…). Both teams settled in to the game quickly and we were treated to end to end football with no team able to gain the ascendency and threaten each other’s goals.
Nil all at half time, our coaches decided to deploy Jade as the number 9 with great effect; after receiving the ball at the edge of the 18 yard box, Jade struck the ball low and hard and with a fortunate deflection, found the back of the net 10 minutes from time.
The end to end football was sustained for the rest of the game and both teams tried hard to find another goal. After a great run from Demi on the left, she found Jade the edge of the penalty box but could not convert Demi’s hard work.
The score remained 0-1 at the final whistle.
With a low scoring game, you would expect that defenders dominated the game which they did with Camryn, Rachel and Amelie putting in a stellar performance in keeping Seaford United out all game.
Undefeated and top of the league after four games. Keep it up girls!
