The Football Gold Coast Aldi Miniroos competition played Round 5 last weekend. Read on for a few match reports.
The U6s played an exciting game with non-stop action. They started strong and kept up a solid defensive effort throughout. It felt like a goal a minute, with Palm Beach ultimately winning 6 to 5 but that did not dampen the spirits of these all-star soccer players.
Player of game went to Eloise for her excellent kicking and scoring two goals!
Well done team!
Under 7 Green players all put in a great effort but unfortunately come up against a very strong Palm Beach team with a six nil loss.
The team almost scored, hitting the post twice. Player of the Match went to Brayden who showed a great display of teamwork and listened to coach instructions.
Well done boys!
Somerset Under 7 White versed Palm Beach Yellow. In the end, Somerset won 4 to 3 in the away match.
Louis scored two, Jesse and Abhiveer scored one goal each. Spectators agreed, the game was particularly exciting.
The home team players were very tall and all played very well but our children performed exceptionally well and eventually won.
After a rainy Friday, the sun shone brightly for the early morning match in Merrimac, making the conditions perfect for the boys.
It was a thrilling game, showing great competitive balance between the teams. Merrimac quickly scored two goals, but Spartans Orange fought back hard with seven attempts on goal in quick succession.
Before half time, Ethan scored two impressive goals and the boys were pumped with a 2 all score.
The second half was filled with drama as Ethan scored two more goals, Hunter and Sam scored one each and Merrimac evened the final score to 6 all with 4 of their own.
Kai, Ruben, and Sam’s teamwork skills were particularly impressive as they worked hard to keep the ball in play and maintain a strong defensive line. The techniques learned during training were evident and it was exciting to see how they used their skills in practice.
The Under 8 White kicked off at 10.10am at Somerset College. After a good warm up the team was ready to start against Mudgeeraba. Mudgeeraba came with a strong team and our Spartans had difficulties getting the ball. This led to lots of shots on goal.
With thanks to James and Alessandro who played goalkeeper and avoided many goals. Alessandro received the Player of the Week for great defending in the first half and saved many goals in the second half.
This match was postponed due to the bad weather. The game will be held Sunday August 16 at Nerang, 8.30am kick off.
What a game! This week Somerset Under 8 Blue played against Palm Beach Blue at the Mallawa Sports Complex. We went in knowing this would be a tough game for us, as this team is Palm Beach's top team in this age group.
At the halftime buzzer Somerset were in the lead 5 nil and within the first minute of the second half Benedict Thompson scored our sixth goal.
Palm Beach went on to score two goals but Somerset took the win.
Our goal scorers for the day were Connor Millar-Martin with two, Paxton Stewart also two and Alex Pourre and Benedict Thompson scored one each.
Player of the Match went to Benedict Thompson for outstanding defence and attacking skills. These boys have truly come a long way, when compared to last year.
Keep up the good work boys.
The Under 10 side played on Somerset’s Track & Field versus The Southport School (TSS).
Thank you to all parents for bringing the players on time, giving the team a chance to warm-up properly.
Somerset created some good opportunities at the start of the game. Elliot then opened the score with great goals. In the Second half Harry followed up. Besides scoring goals, the team also worked well together and kept their shape very well.
The coaches enjoyed seeing the players all happy and playing well together.
Elliot won this week the Player of the Week. Congratulations Elliot!
This match was postponed due to the bad weather and will be played Sunday August 16 at Musgrave. 9.30am kick off.
