The Spartans Football Club played two games this round, with last month’s cancelled game due the wet weather rescheduled. The kids thrived playing on Saturday and Sunday.
The weekend started with home games at the Lower Sands and Track & Field. The Under 6 playing versus Burleigh. Burleigh took a quick lead and had good shots on goal. After a few minutes the Spartans became stronger and scored a great goal made by Jesse. The second half, the team showed good character by working well together in defence and attack. Well done Ruben, Emily, Mayuko, Hamish and Jesse.
Under 6 versus Bilambil - The game ended without a winner or loser. Both teams scored twice, and the game ended in a draw. This was a special result as the Miniroos Competition a draw does not happen very often.
The Under 7 Blue versus Palm Beach was an exciting game to watch. Both sides had good touches on the ball, leading to great goals.
Under 7 Blue versus Bilambil started strong going ahead early with two goals from Edward. All players passed the ball well together. In defending Logan was important for the team with good tackles of the ball.
Under 7 Green versus Bilambil was a good game from both sides. Good teamwork and sportsmanship made this enjoyable for all players on the field.
Under 7 Green versus Burleigh showed a lot of character and determination to fight back and winning the game after being three goals down in the first 10 minutes.
The Under 9 played Burleigh. In the second half we saw great goals from Darcy and Daniel. Every goal kick that the Under 9 experienced was an attempt to get out of the pressure through passing. With a lot of movement and teamwork they were at times very successful. This type of football is what the best teams are playing. We challenge them every week to play as a team.
All coaches are looking forwards to the next game.
