The 16A Blue netball girls faced a very tough opponent on Saturday. The Mana team were very skilful and played at great pace and won the match in a canter 37 to 6. Our girls tried very hard and did not give up throughout the match. Some costly turnovers on our centre passes did not help the cause. The 16 A Blue team have improved each week and have started to gel and will no doubt enjoy finishing off their season next weekend with an easier match. The player of the week was Francesca Burke who showed great athleticism and took some fantastic intercepts.
Our last game of the regular season was against Sportsco. Playing once again in the early time slot we had a slippery conditions following the overnight rain. Our passes were not finding their targets and we found it difficult to score. At the other end we gave up a few offensive rebounds and we were behind on the scoreboard at quarter time. In the second quarter we were able to improve our passes and find our shooters more reliably. Holly and Tilly started putting pressure on their shooters and we were picking a few passes off in the mid court. The second half saw the court surface dry up and our endeavour improved markedly. Jorja provided a reliable target in attack especially as Mia was being double teamed. On the few occasions where Mia had only one opponent, Poppy and Lauren were able to feed the ball accurately to her from close range. Bel moved back into the circle in the last quarter and helped steady the ship with a couple of contested rebounds and scraps on the loose ball. With no defeats in the round games, we now progress directly to the grand final in two weeks’ time.
The Leopards played a fast paced game on Saturday against the Young Mob Alintas. There was lots of movement up and down the court as the Alintas are a quick sharp team. Molly and Ramona played well in Centre whilst Indiya and Ellie made for some fierce defence in GD and WD. Well done to Grace and Polly in the attacking circle as GA and GS. A big congratulations to our player of the week Shelby as our WA who caught some super passes and did a wonderful job of covering the court and creating space. We didn’t score many goals this week but we played a strong game. Looking forward to our last game next week at 12.10 on Court 12.

Under 6 Roos
This week The Roos played in Oberon. It was quite an incredible match, where Oberon really put in their best effort to try and stop the incessant goals coming in from The Roos. There were at least 10 goals from The Roos and 1 from Oberon in what was a truly remarkable show of talent. Nick Lenehan, Ben Alexander and James Chalmers all scored goals for the team. And, whilst Ben Carter wasn’t so lucky to get the ball past the goal, his ability to follow the ball to the attack and make great passes were essential to get most of the goals in. The maturity shown by The Roos on the field was admirable, passing the ball so, so well to each other, moving around the field, marking the opposition and creating wonderful opportunities that ended up in a goal. I am so proud of all of them and how incredibly well they work to support each other on the field. Keep the excellent work!
Under 6 Collies
On Saturday 5th, September the U6 Collies versed the Macquarie United M/Lions. With our full line up kitted up and ready to take the field, the enthusiasm was high. At training, we had been working on creating space and supporting our team mates when dribbling the ball. I was extremely impressed to see that all players were working hard to do just that. At half time, both teams had scored a goal but after a great half time discussion and a tail wind of energy, the Collies were able to score a second goal resulting in us walking away with a winning feeling. It was a wonderful demonstration of team work by all but a special mention must go to Patrick Lenehan who worked tirelessly in attack and defence and showed off wonderful dedication to his team mates. Next week the U6 Collies will play the Macquarie United Panthers 1pm on POL2.
Under 7s Merinos
It was great to have all 6 players at Soccer this week. The Merinos played Panorama FC Black this week. They were enthusiastic in attack, showing great improvement in their tackling skills. Our defence is improving each week and players are learning to mark their opposition and try and prevent the scoring of goals by the opposition. We scored one goal this week, however this does not reflect the growing skill and team work that our team are showing over such a short season. You all never give up and show such great sportsmanship. You are a pleasure to coach and I love to see you all having fun. Next Saturday the SASC Merinos play Panorama FC Reds at 12pm at Police Paddock.
Under 7’s Emus
On Saturday we played Panorama FC Red.
Team Emu took control of the ball for a majority of the game.
Every player passed the ball wonderfully which helped every single team member to score quite a few goals!
It was a fantastic game with both sides showing terrific sportsmanship.
We had no subs so each player took quick drink breaks and came back onto the field with even more enthusiasm.
Thank you so much Team Emu for your hard work, determination and beautiful listening.

Under 8 Honeyeaters
Proctor park was full of excitement as usual with the honeyeaters ready to go, determined to Perform up the front were Charlotte and Ella Jane with Elizabeth working in the middle to win the ball and send It on to them. Hayden was on fire with the ever improving Rhys Bodley and Jacob was determined not to let anyone get in his way with Joel having another good half in keeper and coming out strong in defence. The honeyeaters are improving every week with a win not far away I’m sure. See you at training!!
The SASC 10s were back to full strength last Saturday against Collegians White. Last week we worked hard on improving our defence and ensuring that the opposition forwards weren’t left unmarked in front of goal. Each of our players did a great job containing the Collegians forwards and prevented them from scoring any goals. Mason did a great job in goals in the first half and was greatly assisted by Felix in the backline. Darcy secured our first goal of the half and combined nicely to assist Charlie in scoring our second. The second half was a defensive grind with neither side finding the back of the next. The game was played in good spirits and it is pleasing to see the 10s looking to improve on key areas each week.
Under 13 Blue
The Scots 13s Blue team were more than ready to play there last Saturday game of the season. We had the honour of getting to play on the proctor 1 pitch which fired us up to perform to our very best. At 10:30 we kicked off against the strong 13s Collegian team. Throughout the first half, the ball was very back and forth with the Collegians dominating the attack. This did not let us down as we kept ongoing. The score at half time was 3-0 to the Collegians. The half time talk fired the 13s back up to try and get one at the back of the net. Special mention to all the younger players who benched for us and too Jake Henry who held up the defensive line very well.
The weekend’s game against the Bathurst 75 Blues was an opportunity to concentrate on our style of play and if possible, a chance to give some players a go in positions they think they relish and can accommodate. Whilst we started with best intentions and did not play badly a slip up at the back saw the opposition go a goal ahead and hopeful of their second win of the season. Pleasingly SASC went up a gear and, concentrating on spreading the ball around to make opportunities, asserted dominance with four or five goals. Amongst the wholesale changes made after the break , Cooper ventured away from goal onto the field for the first time this season, Archer in goals gained new respect for Coopers position, Lucas tried his hand at his dream centre-mid position ,Max found himself in unfamiliar territory posing as a centre striker and Munnsy concluded that playing sweeper is one position he is pleased that Connor relishes. Despite the awkwardness of having to play unfamiliar positions, the team competed and played well as they celebrated a 7-1 win and a guaranteed position in the semi’s in a fortnights time, where they have a real opportunity to progress if they are all prepared to commit and concentrate for the entire game. Player of the match was Archer who never stopped all game, upping his defence workload, and continuing to menace the opposition with searching forays towards goal.
