Blayney sports | Showing great courage, sportsmanship and friendship

Soccer

Under 6s

This morning under 6 warriors played a fast game with Waratahs. Riley took the time to pass the ball to all his team mates while Charlie and Maddi once again worked together to shut down the Waratahs consistent attack. Jaxon and Cody worked well in the midfield showing great courage when running on to the ball.

I am so proud of the courage, sportsmanship and friendship that the under 6 warriors have shown all year both to each other and their opposing teams, much laughter has been shared along with a huge quantity of hugs! Thanks to the players and the ever supporting spectators for a great season.

Under 7s

U7 jaguars played Cyms whites, Jai said it best ''oh what a lovely day.'' With Cyms down a number of players, Jai offered to put on a Cyms jersey and take up the slack.

He got himself in the thick of it all kicking on and charging down the field, in the second half, playing for jaguars, Jai copped a hard blow to the body , after gathering himself he ran back into play, getting cheers from both Cyms and Blayney crowds. Charlie started for jaguars, she made some great kicks , passes and chasing the ball towards goal.

Charlie played for Cyms in the second half and didn't back down any. Patrick made life hard for the Cyms, he'd round up the opposition with the ball, stealing or kicking away from their goals. Jack was a wall of defence, when a Cyms goal was looming Jack was there and kicked the ball sideways preventing a certain goal and when jaguars needed a big goal line kick.

Jack was the person for the jobGeorgia, spritely on her feet was great in the centres, she got in the middle of rucks, taking control of the ball and moving it on.

Asher was a great allrounder this week, helping out in the backs , defending goals also taking the ball up to the fronts, he was keen to kick and pass.

Asher unfortunately had a knock with another player, hurting his hand but like a trojan kept playing with an ice pack, what grit . I was also impressed with the Cyms sports personship, if a Blayney player was knocked down the Cyms made sure they were ok and said sorry. Congratulations to the jaguars on a great year.

Under 8s

What a way to end the season for the Phoenix with a 1-0 win! Such an enthusiastic bunch of kids and Rob has thoroughly enjoyed coaching them. Player of the week was Ollie who came out of the goalie position to place himself absolutely everywhere on the field running the ball and tackling where needed!

Taylah scored the only goal and was unlucky not to place more into the back of the net her never give up attitude is admirable which certainly runs in the family as Lachlan and Beau were unstoppable through the middle and up the sideline both making great bursts through the defensive line!

Rhys played one of his best games getting to the ball and backing up his team mates. Lily also had a top game getting lots of kicks to the ball and holding her own against the defence.

Myles was solid in the backs getting rid of the ball quickly and also made a few quick runs on the attack and happy to say there was no red cards for him this weekWe also must thank Carter who turned up early to help out our team and add fresh legs to the lineup he then played for his own team after!

Under 9s

Today both Blayney under 9s Spirit and Puma teams played each other at home. It was a brilliant way to end the season, it was fantastic to see how much both teams have improved since the start of the season and the end score was very fitting with nil all.

I would like to thank all the parents and grandparents that have come to every single game to support their little champions, I had such a wonderful little team in the Spirits and I am a very proud coach. I will miss seeing their gorgeous little faces every week. I hope I see them all next Sunday at the presentation.

Under 10s

Under 11s

Blayney Glory played CYMS Green, in Blayney. The Glory definitely saved their best for last! On a beautiful morning on home soil Glory stepped onto the field to take on CYMS Green.

No pushovers as CYMS are a well drilled and tidy passing team with one of the most watertight defences in the group but lack a bit of fire-power up front. The first half was equal with the Glory creating the better chances and leading 2-0 at the break.

After halftime CYMS took the game to Glory and found two goals to level the contest. But with minutes left to play Blayney closed it out with a late goal to wrap up the soccer year with a well-deserved victory.
