The Spartans Football Club played away games this past weekend. Four Spartan teams spreading out over the Gold Coast to represent their school in the Football Gold Coast Miniroos Competition.
These two teams have almost the same level of skill which was apparent while watching the game bounce from one side to the other. Elliot made a difference with his plays, defending in the first half and as Striker in the second half. Elliot was good for a few goals this weekend. The Spartans won the game with 5 to 3.
Playing away saw a slower start than normal, conceding two quick goals. It was good to see the boys lift their game and score straight after. We had some good passages of play and scored some good goals. One of the goals, Edward made with his left foot from half way. Burleigh came out winners against us Spartans, 4 to 3.
Mudgeeraba were tough opponents, making the game thrilling for players and spectators. Spartans showed good resilience throughout the game to ensure they weren’t going to lose. The game ended with a draw, 3 to 3.
Spartans won their game, 6 to 4. A total of 10 goals made it an entertaining game for parents and players. Our youngest Spartans keep surprising us every week with the skills they have already at this age.
