Week 2 – NSW Comp 11/12
Week 2 – 12 November – NSW Competition 2011/2012
This week, our men’s elite team played Newcastle, one of the strongest team of the competition. Their attacking line is made of fast and very experienced players. The game plan was to include Josh and Yannick in defence and use their speed to neutralise Newcastle’s forward line. All players worked very hard during the whole game and created good scoring opportunities on the counter attack. Despite the loss, a lot of positive has come out of this game, the main point being that we have a competitive team capable of challenging the best in the comp. Well done indeed. Our scorers were Josh Vanderneut (2), Andrew Clay and Lachlan Clay.
Our mixed team also faced the best mixed team, Vipers, which is the NSW female team. Three Vipers players have been selected to represent Australia in next year’s World Championship in Switzerland. Peninsula FC had a slow start, probably being surprised by the intensity of the opposition and conceded 3 goals in the first period. Second and third period saw Peninsula Mixed FC reacting well to the situation and closing the gap. Chances were there to equalise but could not be converted. Disappointing result but a good performance overall. Our scorers were Tim Christie and Yannick Sottaz.
