Week 1 – 29 October – NSW Competition 2011/2012
For many, this was their first game at elite level … the first competition our Club has officially entered a team.
Our men’s elite narrowly lost against Bondi FC, 6-7…..The odds were not in our favour….with Daniel Clay, our best player, having to retire within the first minute following a knee injury. We wish Daniel a speedy recovery. Regardless, our young players gave it 100% with special mention to Josh Brown who played fantasticly by scored three goals. Peninsula FC was leading 4-3 but in a matter of minutes Bondi reversed the situation by scoring four goals. Showing great spirit, Peninsula FC reduced the gap to 7-6 with three minutes left on the clock. Unfortunately for us, we could not find an equaliser.
Regardless of the loss, it is great to see that we have enough talent in our team to challenge more experienced team. It can only get better.
Our mixed team had a hard fought win, 2-0 over Bondi Mixed. The match was a close encounter which was decided in the second period when Lachlan Clay and Andrew Clay scored for Peninsula FC. Our defence was solid and Jon Marks played well as he did in the mens game. Jon showed plenty of confidence in his debut at this competition level. Well done.
