Match Report

Under 6

A great game from our Under 6s. Ollie did a great job defending and pushing the ball forward. Aksel and Scarlett played a strong game with numerous great shots at goal. Zara ran tirelessly all over the field to help her teammates, while Hannah did her best sharing the ball and bringing the ball forward.

It’s been great to see them playing and improving their skills as a team.

Final score Somerset 7 verse Robina Red 5.

Player of the Match: Ollie.

Under 7 Boys

Somerset U7s had a convincing 7-nil win over Robina. Sam kept the goal clear with some thunderous kicks from our end. Leo was a constant force at mid-field. Soren’s persistent tackling at both ends of the field gave Robina fits all game. Sean’s tackling and finishing helped get our first win against Robina in two years.

Thomas earned Player of the Match for superb passing and play making. Well done boys!

Under 8 White

Under 8 White played Mudgeeraba Blue on their home ground. Somerset had to play defence most of the game, making it difficult for our goalkeepers.

All players put in good effort with the final score, nil to 1 for Mudgeeraba.

The Player of the Match went to Harrison for his consistent effort in all positions. Great effort team!

Under 8 Green

We saw a great turn out from our wonderful Under 8 Green team, who enjoyed warming up at the playground with Coaches Ryan and Neil. Once the game started, Hamish took no time to score a ground-breaking goal. The team was pumped. Phoenix continued the momentum with a series of stunning goals. It was clear the Greens were working well as a team, with Emily really giving everyone a good run and Liam a star all over the field.

Abhiveer helped to set up lots of goals, Thomas shone as a great team player and followed up the momentum with more goals. Jesse came through with an outstanding goal. Hamish decided to finish off the game, sealing the deal with his closing goal. This Robina team was great and put up some tough competition. Thank you for the fun Robina!

Under 8 Blue

The boys played a solid game with each team member putting on a two-round display of their developing skills. Great formation from the Spartans prevented any missed opportunities and the boys took advantage with constant pressure, beautiful passes, fierce goal saves, precision goal shots and warrior defense!

We ended the first half owning the only two goals scored by Louis and Ethan and finished the game in front. The final score 5-nil thanks to a further three goals from Ollie and Knox.

Player of the Match was Ethan. Well done Ethan!

Under 9 Wallabies

The U9 Green Team played against Magic Silver at Somerset College. From the moment the whistle blew to signal the start of the game until the very end, the game was fast paced with nail biting opportunities at goals from both teams. Vaughan, Hugo, and Lachie were our goal scorers this week and both Ash and Andrew did well to save the ball on numerous occasions from going into goals.

Player of the Match went to Danny who held his position during the game. Congratulations Danny!

Although the side lost 3 to 7, the boys should be very proud of all their efforts and perseverance throughout the game. Well done boys.

Under 9 Joeys

Under 9 White played a game against Robina at Somerset College. Somerset won 7-nil to Robina. Sam scored two goals; Alex, Abi, Sehaj and James scored one goal each. Robina gave an own goal in the second half. Our team did a great job on both attack and defence.

Under 11

This Saturday the U11s faced our most recent opponents, Bilambil Red again, on home soil. We had a great turnout of players with everyone knowing it was going to be tough game ahead. Yet spirits and heads never dropped throughout the match, as the team continued to fight hard against the strong Bilambil side.

It was great to see Zac get a screamer of a goal! Everyone in the team worked hard to win the ball, along with getting passes off to teammates, which made for a great game to watch. While they didn't come away with the win, it was still a match the players should be very proud of.

Under 15 Girls
