Sensational Old Girls and Old Boys football matches
The weather turned on a summer stunner for the annual Old Girls v 1st XI Girls and Old Boys vs 1st XI Boys football matches on Saturday.
Old Girls vs. 1st XI Girls
Kicked off at 10:00 am. The Old Girls won 5-0 (4-0). It was a much more even game than the score indicated. A very young 1st XI, missing several regular starters, acquitted themselves very well against formidable opponents, including White Fern Sarah Morton.
The difference between the two teams was the lethal punch up front provided by Old Girls Cynthia Saijaipadoi and Charlotte Lewis who scored 3 and 2 goals respectively. Other strong performers were Kata Jackson, Dani Anderson and Ji-Eun Lee.
For the 1st XI Christina Sieberhagen (10HGS) and Maddie McAsey (11WHN) were outstanding, while Anna Leslie (10HRG), Kate Brewster (10KAY), Danielle Van Geloof (9NA) and Mia Parthesius (11AMS) also played well.
Old Boys vs. 1st XI Boys
Kicked off at 12:00 noon. The Old Boys won 4-0 (3-0). The 1st XI recovered very well from being 3-0 down in the blink of an eye to perform and compete strongly against a formidable Old Boys Team who had class players all over the pitch. Miller Christensen-Yule was outstanding, scoring a hat trick, and combined superbly with Jack Taylor, Jasper Holt and Ben Nunnerley. Jake Tucker was the other goal scorer.
For the 1st XI Nathanael Coneglan (13EUG) was outstanding. Quinn de Silva (11HW), Kyle Medemblik (12LAU) and Patrick Salton (10BLY) were other strong performers.
