The Yass Outdoor Power Centre U16 Redbacks finally had their first game of the season at home. The opposition was to be Belsouth and both teams were undefeated this season.
From the outset you could sense the Redbacks were a little lethargic and the big game some players had for the High School the day before had sapped some energy levels from the team.
Belsouth scored a lucky goal first when a ricochet off the goal post squeezed through past the Redbacks keeper. The Redbacks were slowly coming out of their slumber and it was such a even battle between the two top sides. The Redbacks evened things up when Reuben Robinson guided his penalty shot over the Belsouth keeper and into the back of the net. The scoreline was 1-1 as we approached half time.
The second half began and the Redbacks were looking much better until Ben Luck the Redbacks Keeper accidentally wrapping his body around the goalpost causing a head clash with the post. It was a trip off to hospital for a stitch or three. Heath Buffington put on the Keepers shirt and the Redbacks were down to only one sub.
Belsouth went on and scored next when then managed to finally get the ball through a large number of defensive Redbacks players to lead 2-1. The Redbacks were desperately trying to hit back and did create several good opportunities. Their hard work was not rewarded and late in the second half the Belsouth striker found some space through the tiring Redbacks defence to score and take the score to 3-1 in favour of the visitors. The Redbacks never gave up but the Belsouth defence was up to the task and kept them from scoring any more goals.
The Full time whistle was blown and that ended a tough contest with the Redbacks letting this one get away from them, possibly a loss they needed to have happen.
The Yass Outdoor Power Centre Player of the match was Jackson Nash with a strong defensive effort. Nick Hinds had a great second half and Reuben Robinson looked threatening at times.
