Another great game by the 5ths today beating Monarchs III 2-1. We fielded a large squad today of 17, including loaning Chris Harris to goalkeeping for Monarchs.
The team maintains focus on the development of the youths, fielding 8- U14s including 3 under 10's, 3- Teenagers and 4 adults, captained by Murray Griffiths today. Monarchs fielded a strong team mainly of adults with 3 youths/teens.
First half started with Monarchs coming out strong and challenging our positioning at times however with strong defence and perseverance we created many opportunities opening the score line was a great strike from Connor Chapman putting us in the lead. The second half started well with good passing play down the sides however Monarchs kept pressing and found a second half equalizer. The team kept working hard and found better positioning and movement to eventually find the ball to Logan Soutar who slotted in the winning goal from the back post.
Well done to the team and thanks to Millie Costa-Sa for umpiring today.
Keeping position was difficult at times today but good tackles and constant support between the teams
