On Sunday the Redcliffe Tigers Under 12 side took on Aspley Black at home in very testing conditions. The home side was able to get a couple of goals on the board before the heavy rain started. Oli, Nivo, Zano, Bails and Wardy were proving a real handful for their opponents and enjoyed the space a larger field provides.
The clearance work of the new-look midfield was very good, although the ball became exceedingly difficult to handle! Linc in his new role as a ruckman, worked hard to give first use to Mav, Chesty and Cam who showed maximum effort, coupled with skill, in repeatedly driving the ball forward!
When the Hornets kicked their first goal and the weather started to clear, the game started to tighten up. This brought the backline into the match and the run created by Mitch, Holmesy and Kye was impressive. All possible due to the accountability of Ecca, JT and Fitzy.
Overall it was a very pleasing team effort with all players providing glimpses of their capabilities. Whilst the result is great, the real highlight was the style of team football this group are developing. A special mention to a new player to our great game, Joshy D, who booted 2 goals on debut!!
A huge thank you to all the parents, players and club volunteers for the support on the weekend, your help is greatly appreciated.
Next Sunday’s match will be at home again, with play starting at 9:00 am vs Rochdale.
