Sutherland No.2: open
Sutherland No.3: open
They came and they conquered that’s the W11B’s after spending nearly 5 hours at Anzac Oval it was all worth it. 11 of the gutsiest girls defied the odds to win. Just making it to a Semi Final would have been a very satisfying result but someone forgot to tell these girls.Here is a wrap of what took place.
Group Stage v Gymea – A very good side but no goals could be scored over the 30 minutes but the Rockets progressed on corners 4-2.
Quarter Final v Marton – Despite beating this side earlier in the year today was a different story and things were not looking good as we were behind on the corner count. But with 5 minutes to go Rachel did her toe poke that went past the keeper and into the goals and the girls hung on well to win 1-0.
Semi Final v Miranda – This team were physical and could play and had the wood over us this year. Miranda took the lead via a own goal in the first half before Abbey launched a towering shot from the halfway and the goalkeeper got it wrong and the ball went under her feet. Despite being back at 1-1 we were way down on corners and as they had scored first they would go through. So the only way out of this was to score and win by 1 clear goal. We got that goal with 3 minutes to spare when Abbey again just kicked it as hard as she could took a deflection off a Miranda player and went into the goal . Just had to survive for the next 5 minutes and they did and the girls were so excited to win and advance to the Grand Final.
Grand Final v Cronulla RSL – The only time we met this side they beat us and we only had 6 players so with a full squad available they were in for a match. 0-0 at the break but we were ahead on corners so just needed that goal and in the 2nd half it was Bella who pounced on a lose ball and smashed it into the goal. Some nervous moments but the girls were well deserved winners and the scenes after the match is what football is all about and mate-ship.
A big congratulations to Holly,Bella,Rachel,Madi, Ava, Amelia,Liana,Brooke,Grace,Abigail and a big thanks to Tayla from the W9A’s who helped out greatly.
Too the Coach & Manager who did predict the girls could win it well done to you both.
