Under 11

Camberwell vs. Williamstown Fearon

By Miles Cowton (Camberwell #32)

Doug was missing but the Wells didn’t disappoint with Kieran stepping in as coach and guiding us to another stunning victory.  Frank kept the Fearon at bay in the goals where the ball made its way many times in the first quarter levelling the score at 2 all however, by the 2nd and 3rd quarter the attacking and defending play kept the Wells scoring and Fearon out of the game.  Many rotations were necessary to keep all the Wells bench in on the action which Kieran handled giving every player a fair go and letting everybody play their part.  Varick’s fast running again saw him score and Ash fought for ground balls coming out with them, Lucien grabbed and passed with great skill, Angus had his dodging down pat and was able to dodge Fearon with ease.  Colby caught anything that came his way and passed on to score.  Miles grabbed and passed his fair share of the ball midfield moving it down the ground and scoring from Rupert’s fantastic assist.  Isaac was fast and with play to and from him scores racked up as was Barber converting great assists to goals. Edward kept the pace fast and often broke through three Fearon players to come out with the ball which he then moved down the ground to goals, overall the Fearon kept us running but the Wells kept them covered which resulted in a strong victory for Camberwell.

Under 13

Magic vs Altona - 13 June

The Magic have been making some big improvements so far this season and today's match was no exception, from training where we focused on defensive work the results showed in the match. Heading to Altona we found a slightly undermanned opposition so playing 8 a side we began well and continued to show throughout the match the ability to use our bodies and not be afraid to make contact. Our only goal of the game cam from a great fast movement from Mason Lewis to M. Broeks to score a great goal. There were many more opportunities we were just unlucky enough to not capitalise on. Stand out performances by numerous player having their best games of the season, in particular Z. Watt, and A.  Wenczel. Alex (Frenchie) was running hard in defence and looking to hit anyone he could, a player that was very reliable also in defence was George de Bono. The team now looking a bit more solid in its defensive work will need to now need to create some more opportunities from the midfield to get the ball down in our attack. But certainly a great game by all players who continue to show great character despite the end result.
