Our Year 6 and 7 Community Cup Soccer team is off to a great start in this new after school competition for Independent Schools. We have played three games and have won all three very convincingly.
The team consists of our best Year 6 football players and the team is also allowed two Year 7 players one of which must play in goal. Students have been really committed to training twice a week and are playing some great positional football.
Everyone was a bit nervous before the first game but after a few goals were scored the team settled into a great game. This game was against Noosa Pendari Steiner School who were playing together for the first time also. The end score was 10 – 1 with Dylan Myers scoring five goals but the team really were very unselfish in front of goal with five other players also scoring.
The second game was against Suncoast Christian College where we were once again dominant winning 10 – 0. Suncoast were a much younger team but also played great football. The players really enjoyed the opportunity to play on Beegees No. 1 field which is one of the biggest on the Sunshine Coast!
St Josephs Catholic College from Nambour were our next opposition and they were much stronger than the two previous teams. St Josephs scored first and Bakani showed his skill scoring a fantastic individual goal shortly after. St Josephs established a 3-1 lead with just 15 minutes remaining but Dylan Myers, who was being rested due to an injury, insisted on taking the field. He burst into attack and, with the help of Declan Martin and Ryan Kossen, they controlled the ball well, resulting in Dylan scoring three fantastic goals securing the victory 5-3. The midfield and defenders did a great job shutting down the St Josephs’ attack allowing only one opportunist goal in the second half. They also played some great balls forward sending the attackers towards goal.
Parents are required to get student to all these games straight after school so we are very grateful for their support. We have one more round game against Good Shepherd Lutheran College (Noosa) and then the team will be playing in semi finals. The two winners of the semi-finals will progress to the final which is to be held at Stockland Stadium as part of the Charity Day for Daniel Morecombe.
