PLC Open Day
Thanks to our Pacific FC stars who came out on Sunday for the PLC Open Day. It was great for the school and new PLC families to see the Pacific FC strip. Thanks also to Rita Williams, John Williams, Steve Symes and Rob Moffitt for assisting in setting up.
The U6 Tigers played the aptly named Bli Bli Chargers, who impressively for this level were stringing together passes! Kruz was unlucky early on not to give the Tigers the lead, while Sophia was a star in goal with one handed saves (while taking a drink). Jimmy and Axel put in some huge dribbling runs, fantastic to see, while Nicholas and Luke both put in massive efforts to play the whole game. Although the scoreline was a bit one sided, the Chargers Manager did say next goal wins and Kruz obliged for the Tigers. Well done Kruz for giving the Tigers a moral victory.
Player awards to Jimmy and Axel.
The Razors played Mooloolah Pythons away. Jacob helped Razors take the lead with a powerful strike, but the Pythons played a very structured game with a skilful striker up front managing to score 4 goals in the first half. The strength of the Razors showed with the team adapting their structure to reduce his attacks - very much player led. With that the Razors went on to take scores level in the second half. Only a late goal by the Pythons meant the score ended 5-4. Brilliant effort by all in attack and in covering defence, working as a team and never giving up. Jacob got 3 goals, Isabel 1 and Noella and Quinn came close. Chloe was outstanding in goal, Kayla strong as ever in the outfield. Porscha, Blake and Rachel shone with their persistent effort.
Isabel and Jacob got player awards for their leadership and play.
The Vipers showed some real promise after a few weeks of specialist coaching from Greg Lee and Rob Moffitt. They are really starting to show some cohesion, control and passing. Unfortunately, it has not yet meant any goals. Against Nambour on Saturday it took a while to realise the opposition were playing offside, but once the Vipers sorted that out, it was a real close tussle. The second half was a nil-all draw! The whole team did some great things, but special efforts came from Jarryd who nearly swallowed the ball and Blaize who had some amazing runs down the wings.
We have a rest this week then let’s see if we can score some goals and get some wins. Vipers rule!
