Somerset Spartans Football Club teams continue to play their matches each Saturday morning. Please read on to catch up with how the Spartans played at the weekend.
Harrison Qu (pictured) made his first appearance for the Under 6 last weekend. The boys and girls had a tough game versus Burleigh, with their opponents scoring four goals to Somerset's one but put in a great effort.
The Under 7 Blue had a late kick-off at Tally Valley which meant a prolonged warm-up consisting of a passing circle, getting the boys ready to play with the ball. The side started quick and scored a couple of early goals which set them in the right stead for the game. The highlight of the game was the Barcelona-esque team goal scored with touches from Alex, Henry and Ben before it was finished by Edward. Once again, a great result scoring over 10 goals and keeping a clean sheet. Well done boys, let’s do the same next week!
The Under 7 Green played at Robina. Low on numbers for the game, 4v4 no subs. Despite this the boys played well and were much more satisfied playing more minutes. Chase scored a couple of nice goals in the first half with a good build up of play. Paxton arrived late but his fresh legs tore apart the opposition scoring the three last ditch goals. Connor played a great game in a workhorse all over the pitch. The team showed great effort and concentration and are learning more every week.
The Under 9 played versus TSS. The two schools who play both in the Football Gold Coast Miniroos Competition made it an entertaining game. At half time the score was 1 all. In the second half, both teams had good opportunities to take the game but it was TSS who took the last goal, in the last minute of the game.
Saturday 22 June all Spartans Football teams play home games.
