U7 Teal v Maroubra Saints
Round 5, Drummoyne Oval
It was a cool, wet and windy morning for the U7s home game against the Maroubra Saints. Luckily the weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm from the team or the crowd. The U7s got off to a great start with a handball by Koji onto the Man-of-the-Match Frank to score the first goal of the game! We were away with first points on the board only seconds into the match!
The excitement continued with a great mark by Ned who ran it up close to the goal posts and scored! Go Power! The scene was set for a great game to follow. The midfielders started to fire and there was some great hand-ball and kick combinations between Dylan and Tyler. A strong mark and goal by Ned and the momentum was starting to build!
The second period started with a brilliant tip off by Isaac and a pass onto Hayden who landed a big kick down field. With some fancy footwork around the Saints, Fletcher then followed with a successful goal.
The opposition started to press in the third period and Hugh came through with some great defence to keep the Saints at bay. Hayden then displayed impressive skill with a successful kick to goal whilst on the move.
Another sterling performance by the team and good to see improvements each week with several displays of superior long kicking skills, solid hand passing and kicks to each other.
The boys celebrated proudly singing both the National Anthem and the Club song.
Keep up the great work U7s!
