Round Nine Match Reports

Under 5/1

A short trip to Morisset this week. The team started the game with lots of energy and running. Elijah was outstanding scoring some goals. Deegan was solid in his defensive duties alongside Benjamin who made some good clearing kicks. Harrison was full of energy covering all parts of the field. Trey did not stop running all game and also scoring some goals.

This weeks KFC Morisset player of the game went to Trey.

Under 5/2

A great match today against Rathmines. With a couple of early missed opportunities, we were off to a great start. Jackson did a wonderful job saving some early goals. And this was supported by William’s tireless running. 

Regan made some great breaks. And Charlie made some bustling runs through the middle. But our man of the match, Ed, was best on field scoring four goals, and saving goals through some strong defence. A great effort by everyone on field today.

Beautiful Saturday morning at Fisnburn Oval at Rathmines. We, unfortunately, had Aurora and Emily S out this week so we’re down to 5 players. So proud of all the other players stepping up in their absence. Charlee and Emily P our superstar girls never gave up and chased the opponents around all game. Great defence and chasing back shown by Fraser and Oliver. 

Our McDonald’s Morisset player of the week was Elijah for his involvement in almost everything from some amazing runs in attack to chasing back to stop multiple goals. Well done Elijah.

Under 6/2

A beautiful winters morning down at west lakes wildcats home ground in Rathmines.

Everyone played a great game of soccer. A slow first half with everyone playing great in the second half. Some great kicks from Khaleesi, Korbyn, Kobi and Harlen, with Harlen kicking a few goals. Great seeing Joel getting in there and blocking the ball and then running with it.

Abbey’s Coffee Co. player of the week goes to Hudson,  for always getting in and giving his best, never giving up. Great work Hudson.

Under 6/3

Today our team played at Redhead. 

Unfortunately, we were down two players this week, so they didn’t get to rest as much as they normally do, but they all pulled together and tried so hard! 

We missed our other players though! :) 

We showed great team work this week and everyone got in there and their tackling practise at training paid off! We got a few goals from our little, fast Levi and he also put up great defence towards the other team, therefore, our Platinum Window Tinting player of the week award went to Levi Rolsch, well done buddy

Under 7/1

The dribblers made the trek to Belswan this week under some gorgeous sunshine!

It was a fantastic performance by everyone this week including a couple of great goals from Eli and Jax, but what was more impressive this week was the defence and team work these kids put in. I lost count of how many passes the kids put in, including calling out to their team mates to let them know they were open. Georgia, Maggie, Karsten and Jordy all put in some great tackles and runs up and down the field. Unfortunately, Georgie was away sick this week and we hope she feels better soon.

The kids laugh every week when I say how hard it is to award our player of the week, but this week it was exceptionally hard - thanks to consultation from Manager Scott, we decided on Maggie who just had a never give up attitude - well done!

Under 7/2

The 7/2 tigers played belswans this week who they lost to 8 2 in the first game they played. Unfortunately, the tigers didn't get the win this week with a close loss of 4 to 3. To say I was proud was an understatement and great to see how much we have improved as a team.

Close score at half time with only 1 goal scored against. Second half we started of on fire with two quick goals. But just wasn't to be today. Everyone played outstanding and was tough to pick a player of the week but this player of the week goes to Archie lavender who defended his little heart out well done Archie and go the tigers!!

Under 8/1

Today the Cheetahs headed off to Jack Neaves Oval to take on South Cardiff.
The team performance we saw today was very similar to last week. We kept in our positions, passed the ball, moved the ball around the field with skill and marked the other team. We said last week was our best game thus far but our team this week did even better. We are improving as a team week by week which is exactly what we want. 

It is hard to pick highlights from today’s game because everyone put in 100%. It really was a  great performance by all. Sadly, some refs calls went against us and our two goalkeepers Nash and Annalise were kept busy during the game due to the other teams attack but all the Cheetahs should still be so proud of how they played today. 

Our Centennial Coal player of the match went to Aylah. Aylah was switched on and ready to play today. She did a top job getting the ball out of the red zone, got involved in tackles and defence. She was willing to have a good go and was super keen. Well Done Aylah keep up the great work!

Under 8/2

Today 8/2’s played against South Cardiff in an away game.

The boys took to the field with Logan in goals in the first half and Ari in the second both saving some amazing shots from going in.

We started off with Casey running the ball around the field and taking it up the field closer to goals with Mason and Rhys assisting in defence and trying to gain control of the ball and having some great chases. Nixon and Ari had some great kicks and tackles in the mid field.

Our goal scorers today were Noah F scoring 2 and Noah Y scoring 1 for our team. Although the final score was 5-3 the kids played an amazing game.
Riley was a little unwell today but still came to watch and support his team. Our player of this week goes to Noah Y for his awesome goal and efforts today.

Well done boys keep up the good work

Under 8/3

This week our team was away against Belswan. It was a cracker of a morning. The team played really well passing and defending.

Zack had his first go at being goal keeper, he unearthed his hidden talent putting everything on the line saving numerous goals. We didn't come away with the win but everyone was still smiling.

This week's One Choice Concrete player of the week goes to Audry. Her amazing defence and ball skills rose above this week. Well done team.

Under 9/1

DC Superhero’s u9/1 vs Belswans 26th June. 

Great start with some long kicks. Charlie had a great save in the first 5 minutes. The pressure was on from the Belswans, but as the DC Superheroes warmed up they defended the goal well and prevented a number of goals.

It was 4 nil when we got the ball up the other end, excellent kicks from Dylan & Josh.Anders intercepted the ball numerous times being consistently defensive. There were some terrific saves from Kayden.

Some complacency by Belswans left opportunities open for some great passes. There were plenty of long runs & goal attempts by Josh and hustling by Anders in the 2nd half but the Belswans targeted kicks meant they got numerous goals despite Eli's tenacity as goalie.

Dylan did a terrific head pass and Ronan defended many attacks being in the right place at the right time. Despite Jacob consistently stealing back the ball and a couple of final goal attempts keeping the pressure on until the end, we were not victorious this week.

And the Lake Macquarie's Crane Hire Player of the match was Eli Smith.

Thanks Bianca for subbing on the match report today. 

Under 9/2

It was a gusty day at Pelican, as we took on Swansea/Belmont in round nine of the under 9’s competition.
The scoring opened with the three forwards Braxton, Reuben and Angus passing between each other for some great assists. The boy’s effort displays their commitment at training. Keep it up!

While Saxon in goals had a great game keeping the oppositions score line to a minimum. Again exhibiting commitment and improvement, this can be directly linked to his efforts at training.

Our defence, Jackson, James and Ryan formed a solid back line that worked hard to stop the opposition from scoring. While Ryan did well in defence today, he also made some great touches in attack, shaping to score at one stage. 

A big thanks to Jax and Eli from the under 7’s who backed up to provide reserves for our depleted team today. The boys are to be congratulated for their efforts, neither looking out of place on the larger field, with older players.
Angus receives our Southlakes Medical Player of the week for his gaol assists and glut of goals in this week’s game. Great job Angus!
See you all at training on Thursday.

Under 10/1

A short trip to Morisset this weekend for the team.

A very competitive first half of football between two well organised teams. Some great attacking runs on the right side from Kash who supplied several crosses to our attacking pair Oliver Brann and Antonio who tried hard to put them away but denied from some very good goalkeeping. Our back line was organised with Harry, Tyler Woodford and Tyler Ward protecting our first half keeper Oliver Boughton.

H/T Morisset 1 SLUFC 0

In the second half our concentration dropped and was punished by a very good team in Morisset. What a trooper Rylee is, carrying an injury in the first half went in goal for the second making some good saves from shot after shot after shot. Kai showed some good ball skills in midfield along with Caleb who worked hard all game. Ryan once again put in 100% like every other week and did very well playing in multiple positions he was asked to play in. 

This week was definitely a tale of two halves.  But the first half performance definitely showed we can compete with the stronger teams in the competition.

This weeks Hunter Packaging player of the game went to  Kai.

Under 10G/1

We had an early k.o away at Valentine and the girls knew it was going to be a physical game. 
The game was evenly matched with both teams creating chances Lexi and Stella combining up front with Sienna in support pushing forward. Katie with an impressive pass into the mix of defenders fell to Evie and a snap shot found the back of the net. Some great saves yet again in goals from Lexie kept us in the game along with ash, kalani and Izzy working hard in defence. Sarah was brought on and continued the great work and didn’t miss a beat. 

Second half the girls had a fair few questionable calls go against them and it cost us in the end. Even though it was obvious the game wasn’t going to go our way, our girls never gave up and played our game which will benefit us in the long run and played football the way it is meant to be played. I’m so proud of each of you for the way you held our standards high and not dropping them at anytime. 

This weeks Zen Bathroom & Tiles player of  week is Kalani. 
Amazing effort from all the girls and I’m so happy to step in as coach with Simon. 
Let’s get back to training and enjoy next weekend off.

Under 10G/2

This week had the Hurricanes on the east side of the lake against the Belswan team. The wind took the team by surprise but it didn’t stop them from charging right from the opening whistle.

Every week, the girls improve and showcase their dribbling, passing and defensive skills. Amber got 2 kicks to the back of net with the support of Winnie, Betzi and Stella. Jazi got amongst it to get the ball out of the pack. The back line of Sienna, Jenny, Ava and Indi consistently repelled the opposition throughout the game. Millie kept the team in a winning position by keeping the ball out of the goals.

Indi was chosen as player of the week due to critical intercepts as the last line of defence.

The Hurricanes won 2-1 to continue the winning streak!!

Southern lakes united fc under 14's round 9 must win game against Morisset strikers with peninsula bragging rights up for grabs.
Today seen us currently in 5th and a win today could possibly put us back in the top 4 where we belong.

We started the game with almost a full squad and a goal in the first couple of minutes with Matilda traynor unmarked at the back post then we went into a bit of lul with our boots not moving, not chasing back and our passing not finding the mark with us struggling for the last 25 minutes , morisset came hard at us with a nervous coach eager to get to his troops at halftime with us losing our normal formation.

Credit to our back 6 stopping all chances for the half and a relieved coach when the whistle went for the break.

Our message at halftime was go back to the old us and start playing for each other, want the ball more than them and let the bloody ball do the work with a few ' rockets ' dished out , well they listened come out charging and we looked a completely different side in the second half to the first with us getting great reward for effort and the finishing of Matilda traynor was on show with another 3 times she found the back of the net, finishing off some great team build up in what was a match winning performance.

Message out of today was at times when it's not working you just have to roll up your sleeves and lift as a player and a team, also another positive of today was everyone in the team at some stage played a part in Matilda' s 4 goals wether it was liams kicks or our wingers crossing some gems of crosses.

A break for holidays next week then a game against 1st place who ran riot in the first round against us and they have at least scored 5 goals in all of their games this year remaining undefeated the challenge.

Get behind these oranges cause here we come ! 💪

Friday All Age


Raymond Terrace were too good for us on the night and scored 2 in the first half and 4 in the second half.

At last we scored our first goal of the season!!!   The move started with Jade passing the  ball to me (Terry) in midfield,

I placed a back pass to Dave  who  then placed  a beautiful ball onto Adam Saint  John on the  left side of the box  who

then put the ball low and hard into the far corner of the net!!!!  Adam proceeded to celebrate with a run off the field to his friends.

We still played ok at times with notable performances from  Tom,Bayden and Grace on the backline, Kody  in midfield, and Adam Saint up the front.


Saturday All Age

Well what can I say, football can be a cruel game, the Mighty MAA, went on a trip to Fletcher, to take on local team, we set up 433, and had to borrow, super Dave and young Chris C from Fridays,  game kicked off, and we started bright, with Jim man marking their main strike weapon and kept him quiet, but he only needed one chance and he scored, 1 nil to home team, Mark N went off injured so we were down to 11 players we rallied and didn't let our heads drop, and that wily old Irishman Terry, put in a looped cross, which evaded everyone except Darren who scored with some style.

1-1 at half time, 2nd half continued much same as first,  the tall handsome fella on the left had a pop at goal only to see it come off crossbar.., still even stevens,  the 2nd half went on forever, unfortunately in last minute we conceded a penalty,  which they scored, final score 2-1 , like I said a cruel game, but kudos to everyone,  we are now competitive in our group, so heads held high.., and many thanks to Super Dave and Young Chris for helping out, both were outstanding
