Girls Soccer Team Report:

Once again we got off to a slow start after the distraction of getting the field set up across the adult pitch, 10 minutes and 2 goals later we finally managed to tightened up our defence and kept out Fairfield's very talented attackers for the next 45 minutes.

The game went back and forth with neither side dominating for most of the middle period but the pressure grew near the end with Sienna making a number of critical saves. Eventually, the pressure told and they got their third and last goal in the dying minutes.

Having Sienna back in the team was great and we now have a full squad, but having to figure out what to do with three subs put the coach into a bit of flat spin. He left the team with two centres and no wing at one point, but promises to have a proper system worked out next time 🙂

Sophie got the Player of the Day Award - she played in goal for all of last week's match but a got a full game on the field this week where she sharpened up our attack. The parents chose Megan as the Committed Player of the Month. This is a new initiative by NZ Football where once a month the lucky recipient gets to put some Milo advertising on their bedroom wall.
