Wingham Warriors U9's
WHAT a great start to the season, funny how the kids slot back into it. We played Taree with two players down, on a wet, muddy field. Scott Walker was at it again, scoring two goals for the Warriors, and Reid McPherson had a great first half playing goalie and saving a few tricky shots. Brody Kriss played a great fullback second half, making it a job for Taree to score. Oliver Saxby gave a great effort in goalie in the second half. Congratulations to Ari Baker on his very first game of soccer. Very proud of him putting his newly learned ball skills to good use in this fast paced game. Player of the match was Cameron Oliver, who had an excellent game, playing fullback for the first half, smacking the ball up the field and saving a few attempts at goals. Great game kids, welcome to 2014. Looking forward to a great season. Cheers Coach Brad.
Wingham Warriors U13's
THE Saxby’s U13 Wingham Warriors had their first outing of the season with an away match against the Tuncurry Gold team on Saturday. With many of last season’s players returning we also welcomed several new recruits into the ranks.
New player Declan Ford showed his colours by stopping a strong goal kick with his body. The first half did not go Wingham’s way and players played strongly to defend against Tuncurry’s fancy footwork.
Sam Morse made a valiant effort in goals, solidly saving many attempts but was unlucky with a few high shots. Meagan Smith put aside her girlie instincts and gave the boys as good as she got and now sports the bruises as proof. Kye Gregory played with his head, using it to stop and deflect the oppositions throw ins.
The half time pep talk from coach Goodman spurred on the team as he praised them for “doing all that we trained” and passing perfect “through balls”. Despite the warm weather and fading match fitness the Warriors came back in the second half. David Diehm set up a cross field counter attack in our goal zone, lobbing a strong high ball to Nash McPherson who scored a great goal. Tuncurry were kept at bay and the second half score was even, unfortunately the Tuncurry goals from the first half were also recorded on the match sheet. The final result was not in our favour and did not reflect the fine game played by all team members and the potential to go on to bigger and better things this season.
