Match Reports

Sat 23 Aug 2014 - Belsouth Seagulls v Yass U8 Spiders

The Yass Under 8 Spiders took on the Belsouth Seagulls at Hawker this weekend. The Spiders Scored first with a cracking goal by Ben. The Seagulls answered with two goals later in the first half. Yass were still looking confident at the beginning of the second half but without subs they started to run out of steam. The Seagulls dominated possesion for the later part of the game scoring another two goals, Cooper (Captain) had an excellent first half and was always thinking of some new tactics to beat the opposition. Ben had an outstanding game and was valuable in both defence and attack. Meika put in another strong performance as did Floyd Johnathan and Jake. Hamish enjoyed a break from goal keeping this week and was often running with the ball. Once again the Spiders defence was excellent with good solid tackling and no penalties conceded. Final score Seagulls 4 Yass 1.


Sat 16 Aug 2014 - Yass U8 Spiders v Belsouth Vultures

The Yass Under 8 Spiders took on the Belsouth Vultures at Walker Park this weekend. The Spiders faced the Vultures for the second time this season and were up for a tough fight with one of the best teams in their age group. During a fast paced game the Vultures took control from quite early in the game, with good passing setting up strong attacking shots on goal. Cooper had an excellent game and showed he had the speed when it counted, both he and Johnathan had some excellent runs up to the opposition goal. Support was unfortunately lacking on the few occasions both he and Cooper were in striking distance. Jack did some tackling during the match, and Tegan also showed some great speed to the ball.  Hamish put in another great effort in goal, and was always in the thick of it during the second half.  The Spiders defended with heart, and always kept their heads up. Floyd (Captain) showed some great skills in a couple of 1 v 1 encounters and tried his hardest in goal during the second half.  Jake was strong in defence with some notable intercepts.  Meika contested the ball strongly, taking on the opposition players fearlessly. Final score Vultures 12 Yass Nil.


Sat 2 Aug 2014 - Yass U8 Spiders v Belwest Panthers

The Yass Under 8 Spiders took on the Belwest Panthers at Walker Park this weekend. On a lovely sunny still morning, the Spiders followed their first goal of the season last week with a really strong performance. This week all the players were really motivated, and put in 110% effort.

Good solid tackling was the name of the game on Saturday and the Spiders time in possession was equal too, if not greater than their opposition. Some good passing and big clearing kicks made for a very fast game in what turned out to be quite a warm day.

The Spiders kept pushing the ball into the opposition half throughout the game. Cooper did some excellent clearing kicks from our half and Benjamin was always at the right place to intercept some great attacking plays from the Panthers. Floyd and Johnathan showed some great ball skills often beating more than one player. Jack was doing an excellent job tackling and passing towards the centre.

The Spiders probably had the most shots at Goal the team has attempted this year. Meika (Captain) followed up from last weeks impressive performance with some great leadership and was never far from the action. Hamish had another excellent stint in Goal with some tricky Goal Kicks that kept the opposition guessing! Tegan was contesting the ball strongly and was always picking up the sneaky unmarked opposition players. Final score Panthers 3 Yass Nil.
