Weather plays havoc with soccer
WESTLAWN Panthers travelled to Wajard Park to take on Coutts Cougars in the NCF Third Division on Saturday.
In a weather-affected round, the Cougars were keen to make amends for a couple of close losses in previous weeks, and did so.
Coutts were unable to get the better of the Panthers last season and went into the game as the slight underdogs.
Coach Terranova was ecstatic at his team’s performance and commitment in what was a very open, entertaining match.
Coutts managed to finish the game strongly recording a 3-1 win.
James Crighton, Shorty Grant and Daniel Gavin got their names on the score sheet.
The Panthers responded with a scrambling goal from a free kick outside the box to worry the Cougars.
Mathew Godwin had a blinder for the Cougars. Nick Gardiner was solid in defence with Guiseppe Terranova playing the role of provider for two of the Cougars’ goals.
The result was a true team effort and is a good sign for the Third Division which appears to be a very even competition.
Majos Lions win
Soccer had another wet weekend with the Iluka field, the only sporting field open in the Clarence.
Majos had two teams lucky enough to play at Iluka: Majos under-13 Lions and our senior team Majos Brumbies.
The Majos Lions had another great win against the Iluka Sharks winning 6-0.
The Lions had several of their key players out for the weekend and coach Greg Allen was pleased with the way the team rallied to produce one of their better games.
Charaya Loney was named player of the match having his best game and scoring two goals.
Taylor Corbacho also had another outstanding game scoring another two goals which places him as the lead goal scorer.
Bailey Tobin scored the last two goals for the Lions.
Coach Greg Allen stated that the team played a great passing game and was full of praise for Iluka.
Without the defensive backline of Daniel Bremer, Byron Bates, Bima Dekker and Kelly McPherson, the game score would have been much closer.
Majos Brumbies had their game transferred to Iluka to allow them to play against the Iluka FC.
Iluka FC won 6-1 against a disappointing Brumbies team.
The Brumbies weren’t able to move the ball as they had in previous games. They were unable to ‘step-up’ when pressured by Iluka.
The game was brutal in many ways with the Majos Brumbies suffering several injuries.
