The season concluded on the weekend for our U17, U15A’s and U15B’s with gracious defeats by all 3 sides.
U17 lost 3-1 to 2nd placed table, Surf Coast who will meet U17 Champions, Geelong Rangers in the Final. Goal scorer for U17s was Adnan Vrbovac.
Our U15A were cruelly bowed out of the final after winning the league, by a penalty shootout. The match ended up 1-1 after the full time whistle with Johnny Luong putting us level when we were 1-0 down. A dubious call towards the end of the match where Johnny Luong was put through with a 1v1 against the Park keeper, was upended only for the referee to call it outside of the penalty box where it most definitely looked inside the box.
U15A’s little brother, the U15B’s lost to Golden Plains in the Semi Final. Scoreline of 2-1 with Sam Rowbottom getting our consolation goal.
Pictured below is both U15A’s and U15B’s together in comaredere, together as one.
On a brighter note, we have our U13’s representing the club in the Grand Final. The Semi Final match was won on penalties after a full time scoreline of 1-1 against Elcho Park Cardinals. Goalscorer in the match was Rijad Ugarak. The team go on to play the League Champions, Geelong Rangers who are ranked favourites to win. Please come and support the U13s in the final.
A large thanks to all coaches, team managers and assistants, not to mention players and parents for their support during the 2016 season. There are too many people to list as a thank you. We now look forward to presentation night for all teams. Thank you ALL for your support throughout the year!
