Barker Boys 's Match Report

F-17 were Barker Boys first opponents of a triple header on the penultimate day of the season. The match began again in the searing heat of the mid-day sun as Coach Ricky started with a rotational squad that included Valentin in goal, Valentin, Zachary, Dylan and Joshua taking turns in dfence, Marc, Tim Chin, Tim Kee, Dan & Gareth filling the midfield and forward positions.

It was a scrappy but evenly matched affair with no one team able to exert  real dominance as the attacks frequently petered out in the final third after build up through the flanks. And it was through several of these forays down the flank by Marc that yielded crosses but timing of the forwards into the box was off, or the final shots dragged wide.

As with such finely balanced games, it was going to be a moment of magic or mistake that would turn the game around. A goal kick by Valentin down the middle of the field was intercepted by a F-17 midfielder, who pounced on the gift, galloped through an open defence that provided no resistance and slotted the ball into the bottom corner, past Valentin’s outstretched arms and valiant effort to atone for the mis-kick.

F-17 held out for the rest of the match, keeping our Boys at bay. Final score 1-0 to F-17.

MOTM – Marc for his maruading runs down the right flank throughout the game. Pity the forwards finishing did not match up to his quality.

F-17 Cubs 's Match Report

An evenly balanced match which could've gone either way. This one was an exciting encounter with end-to-end action throughout. Nadia stepped in to intercept a clearance on 15min and went on to plant a well-placed shot in the bottom corner of the net to decide this tie. The 3 points cemented 3rd place for F-17 Cubs, a deserved reward for the effort and courage they'd shown throughout the season. Well-done Cubs!
