THE senior competition saw some great football and it is going to be an interesting season.
In the opening Ladies match, Blue Birds opened their account with an emphatic 8-0 result over Scramblers in a game that was quite fast and busy and the scoreline was not as one sided as it appears.
Scramblers started short and were bolstered through the game as their player numbers increased but the damage had already been done and while they competed strongly with the full complement, getting back from the large score was beyond them on the night.
Goals were scored by Amy Hanlon (3) and Sally Longmore (5) in a strong showing and best on the park was Amy Hanlon, Lindsie Newham and Sally Longmore.
Topssip started their season well accounting for last year’s Champions Licorice Hooters 2-1 in a great game of passing and attacking football. Some of the 1v1’s with newcomer Tootsie Lamb and some of the more experienced oppostition were brilliant and Topssip are going to be quite the force.
Tootsie Lamb scored both goals for Topssip while Abby Lewis scored for Licorice Hooters and Best on the park, Tootsie Lamb, Abby Lewis, Jodi Crowder.
In the Men’s match, Get Plastered started their campaign with a solid 6-2 result over Egg Plants in a quick paced game that was continuous end-to-end action.
Both teams worked very hard to defend their goals and while only conceding 2, Get Plastered made the most of their opportunities and saw Brett Dobson and Nick Cook score 2 each, while Chris Lewis and Ben Cook scored goals in support. George Harrison and Oliver Phillips scored for the Egg Plants and best on the park was Ben Cook, George Harrison and Chris Lewis.
The Wolf Pack have started their defence of last year’s comp win with a solid 3-0 result over Hell Raisers who are making a come-back this season.
Lochie Philipse (2) and Braiden Philipse were the scorers and while Hell Raisers created lots of chances but wayward shooting didn’t help their cause. The game was played at a fast pace and was a good spectacle for the small crowd of supporters.
Best on the park was Lochie Philipse, Hayden Boetcher and Jason Mutimer.
