VICTORY TO FACE ROAR IN MORWELL...

Some great pre-season action at very competitive prices. No Pre Sale tickets-purchase at the gate on the day

Melbourne Victory will bring football to Morwell when the reigning A-League Champions play a pre-season friendly against Brisbane Roar at Latrobe City Sports and Entertainment Stadium next month.

The formative home of Victory ambassador Archie Thompson, who played at Morwell alongside former Central Coast Mariners midfielder John Hutchinson for Gippsland Falcons, will return to the national spotlight for the September 1 friendly.

“Pre-season games against A-League opposition play a big part in our preparation for the new season, it’s important for the playing group to get minutes into the legs,” Kevin Muscat said.

“We’re looking forward to the change of scenery and hope to see a large number of Victory supporters in Morwell.”

Victory has become a regular presence in Gippsland, with a W-League game in Morwell last year followed by Latrobe Valley junior clinics in March and an Indigenous gala day at Churchill earlier this month.

Victory will also bring a host of community activations to the region ahead of the big game including a 25 August Miniroos hub and 31 August Super Clinic on the eve of the game.

The event forms part of the State Government’s $85 million Latrobe Valley Sports and Community initiative.

“The world game has a proud history in Morwell and the Latrobe Valley, and the Victorian Government is thrilled to partner with Melbourne Victory to bring top flight football back to the region through our $85 million Latrobe Valley Sports and Community Initiative," Minister for Sport John Eren said.

Mayor Darrell White said the Latrobe City area was excited about the upcoming match.

“Latrobe City has a long tradition of sporting excellence and we are excited to host two A-League powerhouses in our municipality with the backing of the Victorian Government and Latrobe Valley Authority," Mr White said.

WE WILL NEED SUPPORT FROM CLUB MEMBERS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO VOTE FOR US

I'm really excited. A few months ago the club submitted another grant application. This time to Pick my Project by the Victorian government. Admittedly it was an ambitious request. Funding for a club bus and trailer.
Yesterday I received confirmation that EGUFC have made it to the voting round which begins in a few weeks.
I am asking in advance for all the support from club members, family and friends to vote for us as the reality is, this is a popularity vote.
Please, please, please when we send out these links, vote and share so we can "shoot for goal" on this grant. Voters will need to be 16 years or older so our enthusiastic juniors can't vote but family and friends can.

LEVEL 4 REFEREE TRAINING COURSE

EGUFC would like to host a LEVEL 4 REFEREE TRAINING COURSE in the coming months. To become a referee you will need to complete the level 4 referee course and complete the online laws of the game certificate. The level 4 referee course provides participants with education and training to become a referee. The course consists of theory modules and practical sessions on a pitch to enable referees to begin refereeing at community level. The aim of this program is to educate new referees on the FIFA laws of the game and disciplines of refereeing, to uphold these laws, standards of the game and contribute to the enjoyment and fair play of football in Victoria. 

To complete the course you must be 14 years or older at the time of registration.

Ideally we will run this course prior to the Summer 7's season so the club will be able to provide hands on experience before the Winter Competition of 2019. The anticipated cost would be $125 however this will need to be confirmed. If you or a family member are interested in this opportunity, please register your interest and the Club will get back to you with dates and times. There are no prerequisites to begin this training. If you have any questions, please email Veronica Davies on egufc3875@gmail.com or if you have any questions our club members that are also referees would be more than happy to answer your questions.IMG 3218

SENIOR WOMEN LVSL 2018 ROUND 3 EGUFC 5 NYUSC 0

With some very warm conditions EGUFC Womens hosted Newborough Yallourn United.
The game started with some fast pace play with the Eagles putting pressure on the Newborough defence from the whistle, this paid off with two corners within the first three minutes.
Holly McCullagh stepped up to take her role as corner kicker, although the first lacked flight and was cleared back out her next effort was a beautifully weighted cross that found the head of Jenna Coppa who effortlessly put it past the keeper making the score one nil four minutes in.
Up to the tenth minute mark the ball was held firmly in the Newborough half with some dominant mid field play by Sally Baldwin and Kaitlyn Taylor and after another couple of corner taken by Holly the score was doubled in the same way with Jenna scoring her second.
Greater positional play by the eagles kept them on the front foot and searching for more goals had few more chances with some lovely through balls from Sam Davies to Abby Matthews and Deb Grassby who came one on

RESERVES LVSL 2018 ROUND 3 EGUFC 3 NYUSC 3

It was a warm Saturday afternoon that greeted players at West Bairnsdale Oval as the Eagles took on Newborough Yallourn United Football Club with the game ending in a three all draw.
With a number of the regular players unavailable due to the Saturday game, Jarrah Feather and David Tarling lined up for the Reserves.
Feather made his presence felt from the start, unlucky not to score in the opening minutes.
With the ball flowing between both halves, both teams battled hard to get the ball through.
It was the Eagles who scored first as Tarling took it down the ground from the back line before passing it to Feather who floated the ball over the keeper's head into the back of the net.
The midfield line of Rhys McVittie, Andy Somerville and Tom Trch worked with Matt Block and Alex Howden on the wings keeping the ball forward and Feather scored the second goal 33 minutes in.
NYUFC weren't without their chances but the backline of Adam Stanley, Adam Cheesley, Tony Desio and Tarling made it hard for them to get it th

Top of the table Newborough-Yallourn travelled to east Gippsland to take on an Eagles side keen on taking on the challenge against a team full of experience. The task before the team inevitably was going to test the again restructured team. The task was not made any easier due to an earlier injury in the second half of the reserves to Paul Apostoleris. The Eagles once again showed their more fancied opponents that they can play an entertaining brand of football. The experience of NYUSC began to show as they began pressing the Eagles forcing mistakes. The Eagles worked hard throughout the half even though they were down 2-0 at half time. Both teams displayed a good brand of football worthy of the conditions. Once again a great first half by the Eagles clearly under pressure from a well organised opponent.
At half time and during the second half, several changes took place to assist the tiring legs and a minor injury to Nick Polglaze. The spirit shown by those who either stepped up from the reserves and a coupl

What are the benefits of signing up your children for a Kick-Off program?
  • Make new friends and develop social skills.

It was another hard day at the office for the Eagles Reserves, going down to last year’s Grand Final winners Morwell’s Falcons 2000 9-1.
The first half started with an early opportunity from Mickey Martin who was unlucky not to score.
However, the Falcons were able to take control of the game and didn’t let it go, scoring their first goal within ten minutes and their second two minutes later.
The defence line of Ben Knight, David Pachl, Adam Cheesley and Rhys McVittie were kept working hard while Liam Smith-O’Doherty put in another solid performance.
The Eagles continued to maintain the pressure, working the ball into their half of the ground but struggled to get it all the way through, and the few opportunities they had were thwarted by the Falcons’ keeper.
Two more quick goals at 33 and 36 minutes saw the Eagles down four nil at half time.
The pain continued in the second half with the Falcons again scoring twice in the first ten minutes.
Jarrah Feather lifted the team’s spirit, teaming with Pachl to almost score. Feather managed to put the ball in the back of the neat from his second attempt 58 minutes in.
This was quickly followed with a return goal from Falcons three minutes later take the score to 7-1.
Eagles keeper Smith-O’Doherty was kept busy as the opposition had a number of attempts at goal, scoring twice more before the final whistle.
The ever positive Frank Desio praised the team for their efforts under such relentless pressure from a top team.

EGUFC’s senior team went on its road trip to take on last 2017 reigning champions falcons 2000. The task before the team inevitably was going to test the new structured team who put on a fabulous display the week before. The task was not made any easier due to a couple of injuries and players unavailable for this fixture. The Eagles were once again off to a good start working hard for each other to maintain their sharp whiledefending a Falcons team out to impress its group of passionate supporters at the Latrobe City Stadium at Morwell. Both teams showed an enjoyable game of football played on a surface worthy of the display by both teams. It did not take long however for the Falcons unit to get the edge, with a goal midway through first half and another prior to the break. A great first half by the Eagles clearly undermanned but a terrific display by some of the less experienced players in the squad.
At half time a couple of changes took place to assist the tiring legs of a couple of players, while assisting the team by stepping up from the reserves to assist the senior group. The spirit shown by those who committed to supporting the senior group was outstanding. It was to some degree expected that the team would experience a Falcons team fully equipped with the resources to charge at the Eagles. The collective group of Eagles did a fabulous job working together to maintain their shape best they could to at times frustrate the Falcons team. The Falcon’s pressure was taking its toll on the boys which eventuated slotted away another three goals concluding the game with Falcons 5 EGUFC 0. Special mention must go out to David Pachl in goal who had a terrific game with some outstanding saves lead at the back by a solid performance from Jarrah Feather with a special mention for Isaac Boulton and tireless work in Midfield from Ben Gillard. 
Next round sees the Eagles (at Home) take on Newborough-Yallourn at West Bairnsdale Oval, Saturday 7th April with kick-off for Women at 11.00am, Reserves 1.00pm, followed by Seniors 3:00pm.

SENIORS LVSL 2018 ROUND 1 EGUFC 0 Traralgon City 1

9 9ae 70 0e9 9ae 5f 129 9ae 5894EGUFC’ senior team took on the might of Traralgon City who finished third in the league in 2017. The task at hand was going to be a big test to the newly formatted senior line up and structure. Both teams in the first half had to endure the expected wind change which saw winds reach in excess of 90klms hour. This made for a very challenging half as the Eagles had to play against the wind while Traralgon had the majority of the wind at their backs and took full advantage of the situation having won the coin toss. The Eagles held fast in the early stages of the half, but was dealt a significant blow when Captain Tom Forster was substituted due to a suspected hamstring injury. This required a rearranging of the defence and mid field make up consequently enabling Traralgon to take advantage which lead to an early goal. Full credit to the Eagles as they battled had until half time having played some attractive football along with a sterling display of defensive teamwork along with Credit to David Pachl in Goal who took a magnificent save to prevent Traralgon going in at the break with only a one nil lead.
Second half saw a significant change to the line-up with Adam Stanley (who came on in the first half for Tom Forster) being replaced with Wei Kong upfront. It was both Stanley’s and Kong’s first appearance in the senior line-up and di exceptionally well upfront. The central defensive position vacated by Tom Forster was bolstered by the experanced Isaac Boulton who put in a fabulous job supporting the sweeper Jarrah Feather who time and time again held fast. The two central defenders had the backing of both Ben Sier and Nick Polglaze who both displayed a work rate which kept onlookers entertained. The midfield consisting of Ben Gillard, Zeb McLeod, Paul Apostoleris, Lyndon Harper and Will Park worked tireless hard preventing solid performances from key Traralgon players dominating the centre of the park. Lyndon and Will both on the outside wings ran all day and showed that youth when given the chance can excel on the big stage. With an invigorated approach to second half, the Eagles pressed had to get the equaliser and booth teams had their chances, but the best opportunity fell to the Eagles late in the half, with a well-timed cross from the right landed at the back post which was hit first time by Paul Apostoleris unfortunately going just wide of the opposite post. Eagles continued to press with added players pushed forward to only miss the opportunity when the final whistle blew. A fabulous team effort on a day which could have seen it go so very differently. The team has now set its self-up well for a promising start to the season

9 4d 96 2f 69 4d 9 5ef 59 4d 9 6b 74Blustery conditions on Sunday saw the Reserves take on last year’s ladder leaders Traralgon City with the Eagles going down 8 nil.
In what was always going to be a tough game, the Eagles has six new players take to the field for their first time for the Reserves.
Traralgon scored their first goal 13 minutes in and despite dominating play, were held to just two goals in the first half.
With Mike Park out injured, debutant Liam Smith-O’Doherty performed well in goals, with courage making up for his lack of size. Without his efforts, the score difference would have been much greater.
In spite of Traralgon’s dominance in the second half, the Eagles had their opportunities to score and were unlucky not to convert.
With fatigue setting in and with a lack of substitutes available on the bench, Traralgon scored six goals in the last 35 minutes of the game.
Regardless of the loss, coaches Frank Desio and Louie Albonorz were still available to see the positives that they hope to build on for future games.

ca 0 0c 6 1cca 0 0c 1 9fc 5 2ba 607The 2018 soccer season began for the EGUFC Eagles women this Sunday in what were perfect conditions and ended in gale force winds.
The women have been training well and welcomed back to the team Holly McCullagh from her season playing with Pegasus, Kaitlyn Taylor who was injured most of last season and Michelle Perry from “family leave”. They were joined by new players Hayden Fellowes and Emma McKinney and under 16 girls Sam Davies who played several matches last season and Alice Grassby who was in for her first senior match. In addition Rachel Rogers has moved from defence to take up the goalkeeper position for season 2018.
The first up match was against last season’s premiers Traralgon City a tough task. Everyone was nervous but ready to give it their all. The firs fifteen minutes saw Traralgon on the front foot, attacking the Eagles defence which was holding up well until they were able to move through the slightest gap and score putting the Eagles 0-1 down. The next twenty minutes saw the Eagles fight back, break even and were rewarded with an equalising goal from McCullagh. The Traralgon side was not to be denied and stuck again late in the first half and the Eagles went into the break 1-2 down.
With the extreme weather change at halftime the Eagles were kicking into the strong wind, but their spirit was not dented. They continued to work hard and put pressure on the Traralgon side who was beginning to make errors, but it was a defensive error by the Eagles that saw Traralgon score their third goal. With the strong wind and two goals down, you would be forgiven for dropping your head, but this team is made of sterner stuff and they lifted instead. A series of passes out of defence found Perry who had moved forward with three players around her she weaved and baulked leaving all three in her wake and going 1 on 1 with the keeper to score the Eagles second goal. The women continued to work hard and press for the equaliser but late in the half Traralgon scored their fourth and the game ended in a 2-4 loss for the Eagles.
It was a great first up effort for the team with all players making a contribution. The season looks promising with the new players fitting in well and other players taking up new positions on the field. After losing eight players from last seasons roster there is opportunity and space to join the team. Please contact Coach Peter Camera on 0418516004.

MATCH REPORT...

EGUFC V Traralgon Olympians

EGUFC hosted the Olympians on the weekend of the 18th February 2018 at West Bairnsdale oval.
The day was split into four periods of thirty minute halves, enabling both clubs the opportunity to experiment with team structure, positioning and fitness of players. This enabled both men’s reserves and senior teams to mix and show of their ability across a range of positional plays. This also provided all participants to have their first hit out prior to the Jamie kindle Cup at Sale on Saturday 3rd March followed by the commencement of the Latrobe Valley Soccer League season opener on Sunday 18th March.
The first 30 minute period commenced well for EGUFC with considerable enthusiasm from all players. However, it did not take long for the experienced visitors to take control of the game in midfield and consequently the open goal came midway through the first period. It was encouraging to see a lot of new players stepping up to the occasion even though they were on the back foot for the majority of the first period. It was inevitable that another goal came before the end of the period making it Olympians 2 – EGUFC 0.
The second period some significant changes were made to experiment with closing Olympians down in midfield while providing a little more fire power down the flanks. The resulting reshaping paid dividends as EGUFC appeared more settled. Some encouraging plays were made across the back into play, but unfortunately due to a mistake EGUFC conceded another goal. The midfield began to fall away and some late changes were required to bolster the middle of the park. This sprung the team into action and prior to the break at the end of the second period EGUFC scored making it Olympians 3 – EGUFC 1.
The third period saw EGUFC put on primarily the reserves side which was made of a line up consisting youth and experience. It was encouraging to see the guys take it to Olympians by scoring the first goal of the period. The fitness begun to show with EGUFC beginning to take control. Olympians identified the added pressure and worked their way back into the game by scoring midway through the third period. Both teams scored again prior to the last break making it an encouraging response by the group of players. Scores at the end of the third period of play Olympians 5 – EGUFC 3.
The fourth and final period EGUFC put on of primarily its first team, again consisting of a new structure combining youth and experience. EGUFC immediately took control by controlling the ball from the back through midfield into the forward line. The discipline was evident from the first kick showcasing the work the team has put in over the past five weeks. It was only a matter of time that EGUFC scored by a succession of passes from the back into Midfield splitting the Olympians back line and subsequent shot on goal hitting the back of the net. The Olympians were tiring fast and gave it ne last push to pressure EGUFC who were able to counter the pressure by completing the half with another fabulous goal. Final score across all periods of play Olympians 5 – EGUFC 5 a great result against last year’s LVSL cup holders.

MEDIA RELEASE: EAST GIPPSLAND UNITED TAKE CENTRE STAGE AT AAMI STADIUM

Photo% 20 Dec% 2010,% 208% 2005% 2042% 20PM preview.jpegEast Gippsland United Football Club Under 12's took to the field at Sunday night’s Melbourne City home game to showcase their skills and represent the club, thanks to McDonald’s.

Nominated by local McDonald’s licensee Mike Goodluck, under 12 team members Hudson Tarling, Noah Johns, Corbin Blake and Lochlan Wells walked onto the field with some of Melbourne City’s star players to open the match that saw Melbourne City defeat Central Coast Mariners 1-0.

At half time, a team of 10 lucky under 12’s players participated in a small-sided match, exhibiting their skills in front of family, friends and thousands of eager Football fans.

In the money-can’t-buy experience, the players from East Gippsland United were presented with Melbourne City and McDonald’s branded playing jerseys and had the chance to meet some of their favorite Melbourne City Players.

East Gippsland United Football Club coach Marc Bain was grateful for the experience. He said..

“The players were all extremely excited to get onto the pitch in front of their proud parents. It was a fantastic experience and one which many hope to repeat one day for real, in the colours of their favourite team!”

Local McDonald’s licensee Mike Goodluck was thrilled to be able to offer the players such a unique and memorable opportunity.

"We've been sponsoring East Gippsland United for many years and are proud to be involved with such a fantastic club"

"We're very excited to be able to present the team with this exciting opportunity as a result of our partnership with Melbourne City Football Club, and to see the kids get out on the field and have a ball is really rewarding" Goodluck said.

East Gippsland United Football Club is committed to making Football as the number one sport of choice in East Gippsland, the sport that provides quality experiences and opportunities, the sport that inspires all East Gippsland Community members. This partnership with McDonalds offers an amazing opportunity for the country kids to meet their heroes on the State’s best park.

2017 LVSL U12 DIV 1 GRAND FINAL.. CHAMPIONS!!!

2017 LVSL U12 DIV 1 GRAND FINAL
EGUFC GOLD 3 Olympians 2

CHAMPIONS ARE GOLDEN
The U12 EGUFC Gold team took to the field to play Traralgon Olympians, knowing Olympians had been unbeaten all season, including a narrow 1-0 win over them, in their only previous match.
In the perfect, but very warm conditions, the Eagles showed Olympians they meant business from the start. Controlling the play through the midfield, and causing the opposition untold problems down both wings, it was one-way traffic for much of the first 20 mins of the game. As the pressure mounted through relentless attack the Olympians struggled to get any kind of meaningful possession, and the Eagles team grew in confidence with their passing and movement. Something had to give and after a skillfull display of dribbling on the right wing, Matthew Lal cut the ball back to Andrew Chapman at the top of the Olympians 18 yard box, who struck a first time dipping, curling shot beyond the Olympians keeper into the bottom left-hand corner. IIt was no less than the player or team deserved after their dominant display. Clearly rattled, after the unaccustomed experience of falling behind in a match, the Olympians began to settle more but found it hard to breach a resilient Eagles defence, led by the central defensive partnership of Angus Burchall and Quinn Carmichael, ably assisted by fullbacks Enzo Blackmore and Xander Steele. However, in attempting to play out around the edge of their own box, the ball broke loose to an Olympians player who sent a high chip over the diminutive Corbin Blake, who valiantly tried but just couldn't reach the well-placed shot, as it sailed overhead into the net. It had been the Olympians first foray into the Eagles final third, which was surely a blow to the boys. With the scores now levelled at 1-1, the Eagles had to quickly regain their composure. In the closing stages of the first half the contest was more even, with the Eagles sharing small periods of possession with a now buoyant Olympians side.

The second half started in much the same way as the first half, with a regalvanised Eagles team taking an immediate grip on the game. With the powerful play of Hudson Tarling and silky skills of Cooper Bennett in the midfield, the Olympians were again on the back foot for much of the first 15 minutes of the half. Harry Lancaster moved into a more central position of attack, and his pace and trickery was often the catalyst for the Eagles attack. Wave after wave of possession again began to trouble the Olympians back line. Finally, after a concerted effort to gain the advantage, the ball fell to Cooper Bennett inside the Olympians box, and he made no mistake slotting the ball under a helpless Olympians goalkeeper who had been the only thing preventing the Eagles up until this point. The jubilant Eagles team surrounded their player and the large crowd of Eagles supporters went wild. It was now 2-1 in the Eagles favour but their appetite for more goals was not to abate. Now controlling the game once more, with Ashur Brownlie, Ronan Moors and a returning Blair Bain joining the attack at different stages, the Eagles pressed forward. A deep run into the Olympians half on the left by Archie Treasure, led to the ball being worked back inside to Hudson Tarling, who was fouled around 25 meters from Olympians goal. Up stepped Quinn Carmichael to take the free kick. After a couple of similar near misses in the first half, he was to make no mistake on his third attempt, sending a beautifully struck kick over the defensive wall and wide into the bottom right hand corner of the Olympians net. The crowd was now at fever pitch. 3-1 with 10 minutes remaining and the Eagles were in sight of the prize. Credit to the Olympians side as they never gave up desperately trying to regain ground. A wide free kick late in the game led to another high Olympians shot, which the brilliant but vertically challenged Corbin Blake could again not reach. The 3-2 score flattered the Olympians as the final whistle sounded and the Eagles could not be denied.

It was no less than an Eagles team, which had now beaten every other team in the competition deserved. They were truely the Champions and they celebrated madly with their assembled support as Captain Angus Burchall and Coach Marc Bain held the Cup aloft for all to see.

Well done on an amazing season Under 12 Gold - you are worthy winners!

EGUFC's Blue Eagles have gone down in a close and hard fought Grand Final to their main rivals Traralgon Olympians. It took an extra time goal to decide the result.
It was a disappointing result for the large group of local supporters that had made the trip to Morwell, but no one could go home unhappy on how the team played. They had played with tremendous courage and gave their absolute all right to the final whistle. They had most of the play overall and certainly made more shots on goal over the course of the game.
The game had started with both sides playing tentatively and the ball moving back and forth without any serious threats to either goal. The Eagles were playing with intent and despite the warm conditions their work rate be increased.

Their defence was closing down every attack from the Olympians and their long clearing kicks were giving the Eagles forwards the space they needed to utilize their pace.
In the second half the Eagles began to dominate their opponents but they just could not penetrate. The Olympians defence was well organised and they were keeping their numbers back behind the play. Several chances went close for the Eagles but at full time the score remained at nil all.
The Eagles were again all over their opponents during the first period of extra time, but again their chances went begging. At the changeover the wind picked up and it looked to favour the Eagles. But against the run of play and within 2 minutes of the re-start, the Olympians made the break, found some space and their striker calmly found the back of the net.
On the kick off, the Eagles immediately went deep into attack and were desperately unlucky not to equalise. In the final minutes, the Eagles found another gear and began to attack in earnest. Several chances went agonisingly close and it was heart breaking for them not to score. After 90 minutes, the Eagles were still trying their best, but it was the Olympians who were to take the honours.
It had been a fantastic game that had been played without any malice or spite. These 2 teams that have the highest respect for each other both walked off to tremendous applause from the large appreciative crowd.

The coach said, "Bring It On, Give Heart, Commitment and Fight" and that's what the U14 Girls did when facing up against the Falcons 2000 at Morwell in the Preliminary Final on Wednesday Night, under lights in the Stadium. It was a hard fought battle. The Falcons, top of the ladder were up beat and their drive intensified after they scored their first goal within the first 10 minutes, the only goal for the half. Chloe Boulton was on fire as goalie, however once she was floored after a sideways knock she finished the half and was then replaced by Paige Tarling.
Olivia Flynn, Lola Roberts and Ruby Kearsley tried their best to keep the opposition at bay however the Falcons were literally one step in front throughout. Their momentum lifted with another goal within minutes of the second half commencing. Once again Paige Tarling did a fantastic job reading the play, however the girls didn't appear on song in the evening clash. C

The U12 Gold Eagles strode out at the West Bairnsdale oval confidently in their semi final bash against Sale Green. The weather was not favourable but the team didn't let that phase them. The Eagles were without three players, Will Brown being unavailable, and Blair Bain and Harry Lancaster both out with injuries. Coach, Marc Bain had to shift some positions around to accommodate missing players and the team had to work extra hard, having only one sub on the bench.
The game started well, the defence were working as a team repelling many chances by their opponents. Angus Burchall, Enzo Blackmore and Xander Steele did a stellar job in their respective roles. The midfield was well controlled with Quinn Carmichael, Hudson Tarling and Andrew Chapman working hard, tracking back and creating good chances for the Eagles' forwards.

BLUE EAGLES EDGE THEIR WAY INTO GRAND FINAL
The Semi Final matchup between the 2 local U14 teams certainly delivered all that was expected and some more. Extra time was required to establish a winner and it was the Blue Eagles that will advance to the Grand Final.
With the 2 teams playing out a draw only a fortnight earlier, both went into this match with a realistic belief that they could triumph. The older Blue team had occupied the higher position on the ladder for most of the season but had had a very interrupted lead up to the finals. The younger Gold team had shown a steady improvement throughout the year and had certainly looked the more accomplished team in the previous encounter.
A large crowd was on hand at the West Bairnsdale oval despite the unsettled weather conditions and the support was equally divided. Both teams came together first to cheer off their triumphant U12 clu

The GOLD Eagles were looking to improve on their last performance against Sale in round seven, when they conceded a late goal for a one all draw.
The first few minutes of the first half saw GOLD presented with two goal scoring opportunities that were easily defended away by Sale. At the eleven and a half minute mark Mathew Lal had an attempt at goal but his kick was wide, narrowly missing. Two minutes later GOLD were again presented with a goal scoring opportunity courtesy of Harry Lancaster, however this attempt was also repelled by the Sale defenders. Just inside the twenty six minute mark the young Eagles finally broke through for the first goal of the match. Andrew Chapman passed to Harry Lancaster in the centre-forward position who then scored high into the net.

At the conclusion of the first half, GOLD had had five goal scoring opportunities, resulting in one successful goal. Sale had no goal attempts highlighting the attacking nature of GOLDS play necessitating constant defensive pressure from Sale.

The second half of the match saw a very familiar story with GOLD dominating the possession with Sale under constant defensive pressure. Three more goal attempts by the Eagles were made inside the first twelve minutes, the highlight being a spectacular attempt by Quinn Carmichael that deflected off the top bar of the goal. A minute and a half later another scoring attempt by Harry Lancaster was just wide of the mark. Two minutes later Cooper Bennett was on a run down the right wing when he was brought down heavily by a Sale defender, this resulted in a free kick by Quinn Carmichael about two metres outside of the goal square that resulted in a spectacular goal just under the top bar.

Just six minutes from full-time Sale finally broke through for their only goal of the match, some lax defense from GOLD enabled Sale to score from the centre forward position. Sale’s late goal typified their match, pushing GOLD all the way and never giving up.
EGUFC GOLD have now secured second place on the ladder and a first week bye going into the finals.

BLUES GO DOWN FIGHTING..
The Under 12 BLUE Eagles took on a stronger Sale Green opposition and, despite a 5-0 score line, took big chunks of the game up to their opponents.
The early story of the game was about forward moves by the Sale opposition being constantly sent back to the Sale end by a determined Eagles defence.
Early Sale attacks were strongly defended by pressure from Noah Price and Monty Richardson and the athletic saves of Isaac Burgoine in goal.
Each of the teams found some rhythm and the ball moved feely from end to end, with Malachi Courtier and Price taking the ball forward with confidence.
It took until the 19th minute for Sale to score a well-struck free-kick and take a 1-0 lead.
Further Sale attacks were turned back by Sebastian Fidelisi and Burgoine, who was standing up to unrelenting pressure on the goal line as Sale attacked. The strong kicking of Tyler Van Den Meiracker gave some great chances to the Eagles forwards.
Meanwhile Lachlan Wells was winning the ball and finding space in the Sale half and caused a few moments of panic for the Sale defenders.
But the fast Sale forwards were now moving in packs and slotted home their second goal in the 28th minute, to take 2-0 lead into half time.
The Eagles came out with great energy in the second half, with Noah Price taking long runs forward and his first shot on goal going wide.
Sale attacking moves saw the ball stolen back by Chidi Otuoyne and delivered to the running Caleb Smith and Alex Padula.
Feeling that they could match their bigger opponents, the Blue Eagles started to put together some exciting football. Ned Nugent and Michael Dunstan started to get amongst the action and had shots at goal intercepted by the keeper. Padula was in fine form, forcing the ball forward to the running Courtier and Price in attack.
Despite several promising shots, the Eagles could not register a score and Sale eventually gained a fast break and outran the Eagles defence for a third goal in the 21st minute of the second half.
The Eagles fought out the remainder of the game, but Sale scored late goals to take a 5-0 win.
Despite the score line, the young Eagles took the game up to the Sale opposition and played a strong, disciplined game of football.
Coaches awards went to Monty Richardson, Alex Padula and Isaac Burgoine.

Round 18 saw EGUFC under 14 GOLD head to Morwell to face Fortuna. The GOLD Eagles started strong with 80% of the play in the first 15 minutes but again even with so much of the play they just could not convert until the 20 minute mark when Jai Nichols managed to break the deadlock.
Half time saw the Eagles up 1-0.
The second half found the Eagles players becoming tired and starting to play a little sloppy which gave Fortuna the opening to score their first goal. Fortuna managed another two for the half taking the win off EGUFC.

The top of the table clash with Traralgon Olympians has seen the EGUFC Blue Eagles relinquish the number one position after going down 2 - 1 in a very even contest.
The conditions at Traralgon were once again blustery but this week the Eagles were first to settle. They controlled the early contests and maintained possession. Before the ten minute mark, Noah Alexander found space and without panic, neatly slotted his shot past the Traralgon keeper.
This stung the Olympians into action and their work rate started to increase. The Eagles defence were being tested and for a while they held firm. It took a superb long range shot that caught them unaware to tie up the game.
Both teams continued to create chances and each went close to taking the lead into half time.
The second half began with the Eagles immediately attacking through Alexander. His long shot into the breeze sent nervous gasps through the Traralgon camp as their keeper juggled the ball on the line. But as the game progressed it was Olympians who were looking more threatening.
Defenders Alex Poynton, Kieran Dwyer and Josh West were forced to work hard to keep their opponents out. It was another long range shot, and with pin point accuracy, that just cleared the high leap of goalkeeper, Stevie Bertino, that put the Olympians in front.
The game was becoming desperate for the Eagles as they struggled to equalise. The Olympians had confidence and the Blues looked hesitant. Luca Blackmore, Noah Alexander, Seb Dizais and Jordan Hathaway were prominent players but their team work was breaking down and they could not penetrate for the required goal.
The Blues now sit in second place and have just one match remaining for the season. The much anticipated local derby with Gold this week should provide them with another close contest and a good chance to regroup before the finals.

With a fresh breeze sweeping across the ground the Traralgon Olympians greeted the EGUFC U16's team in what could be their last game of the season.
The referee blew his whistle and it wasn't long before the Olympians showed why they were on top of the ladder. A shell shocked Eagles defence was caught napping in the first 5 minutes to allow the Olympians to score twice with a brilliant display of ball skills that weaved its way through, causing havoc for the teams goal keeper.
After some stern words were bellowed from the coaches box the Eagles settled and started to take control across the ground. Constant pressure from the twins, Callum and Lyndon Harper saw the Olympians start to make mistakes and when the ball went forward the captain Jarrod Stephens pounced causing a migraine for the Olympians defence.

Again and again the Eagles attacked with shots on goal coming from all directions. James West was showing the hard work on the track was paying off with some brilliant ball movement from off the wing. James Stastra was having a day out in his defensive roll as he steadied the ship in the backline.

Unfortunately the ball couldn't find the net for the Eagles but that didn't stop them trying. The Eagles bench were also playing their part as Rhys Harper, Alister Williams, Brady Spears and Campbell Dare all put in solid performances.

The Eagles again missed opportunities on goal as the Olympians keeper was being made to work overtime. In the end the home team snuck in another goal and although the Eagles keeper, Liam Smith-O'Doherty played a brilliant game the Olympians walked away with what was a hard fought win. Results on next weeks games will determine the boys future so fingers crossed and go EAGLES!!

The Eagles Girls were pumped..Newborough here we come..the tunes were pumping as many of the team headed off on the bus!!
Ironically it was a very similar encounter to our previous game back in June, with the play being rather ragged in the first half and the score 0-0 at the half time break.
The play for most of the half was in the Eagles favour, against some fierce and big competition both in build and personality. Our smallest players Lola Roberts, Sophie Alexander and Gypsi Canham gave them as good as they got, literally. The game was very physical with the opposition not holding back.
The Eagles girls provided some spectacular threads of play, touches, passes, attacking the ball and some brilliant footwork. There was many opportunities at goal, however luck wasn't on our side today. The second half was goal for goal, ending in a 2 -2 draw. Grace Prior scored the teams first goal a couple of minutes in followed shortly after by Sam Davies. It was a skilful game, the crowd really getting into it and at times very vocal.
Congratulations Girls. Coaches awards to Charlie Flynn, Olivia Flynn and Sophie Alexander in what was another great game by a great team.IMG 9447 ( 2)d 3b 2c 6c 3d 88 7d 7dcd 3b 2dbc 0

The Last game of the 2017 season for the EGUFC Women's was played at home against Sale United. The Eagles just missed out by 2 spots on the ladder to go through to finals.
The last time these two teams met, it was an intense game with Sale taking the win.
Today, Sale needed a win to proceed through to finals- so it was a much anticipated game.
Fortunately for the Eagles and unfortunately for Sale the teams drew 1-1.
The Eagles kept possession of the ball and kept it in there half for nearly the entire first half. The Eagles kept the ball up with a lot of running from the midfielders and forwards. The defenders were always there - and cleared the ball every time it crept there way.
They played hard and keeper Brianna East made some awesome saves. Running off her line with no fear to beat an on coming forward to the ball many times.

The Eagles weren't giving up if Sale intercepted a pass- they kept putting in second and third efforts.
With a couple of goal attempts from both teams- they went into half time 0-0 on the scoreboard.

The girls had there final rev up from Coach Peter Camera and each and everyone of them went out there eager to play to the best of there ability and to make themselves and there coach proud.
Within the first 3 mins the Eagles secured the first goal of the match, scored by Abbey Matthews. Sale came back fighting straight away and scored not even a minute later- bringing the score 1-1.
The rest of the second half consisted with many more goal opportunities for the Eagles but the ball just couldn't quite find the back of the net. 
It was a fast match, with the girls playing a very intense game. The Eagles were having to stand there ground and use there bodies to protect them. This enabled them more control of the ball and more possession of the ball.
The whistle blew and the girls drew 1-1 with Sale. The girls played a great game- and we were all impressed with how they played and how they played the last game in there season.

A big thank you to all the girls- who committed all season to training and games. We've had a great turn out at training for most of the season. 
Another big thank you to Coach Peter Camera. Without him - the girls wouldn't be where they are today. He's been a fantastic coach for the Girls- and has really improved there game this season. Thanks Peter for all the hours you put not only into helping out the club, but the hours before and after trainings and game days. We all appreciate It and are very thankful. Thanks also to assistant coach Dom Zappia, for all the time you put in helping run the training sessions and your assistance on game days; and all the time you put into planning trainings and bringing new ideas to the table to help improve the game.

Taking on Sale United, the Reserves came out winners 2-0 for the final round of the season.
The Eagles took the advantage early in the game.
With only ten minutes played, Will Park had a great run down the ground to pass to Tim Yeung. A penalty was called in favour of Yeung.
David Claridge took the kick and even thought it was initially unsuccessful, Claridge scored on the follow through when the keeper fumbled the ball.
With the wind playing havoc with the ball, play was unsettled in the first half. Loose play on both sides saw plenty of turnovers.
The Eagles defensive backline of Tony Desio, David Pachl and Adam Cheesley were kept busy as Sale had the play more to their advance.
However, they were unable to convert from their opportunities due the ever reliable Mike Park's great efforts in the goal, keeping the score to one nil at half time.

With the wind to their advantage, the Eagles took to the ground in the second half determined to hold their lead.
But Sale were equally determined to level score but once again, were unable to make the most of their early opportunities.
Unfortunately neither were the Eagles with Claridge, Ben Knight, Marc Desio and Will Park all unluckily in their attempts to score.
76 minutes in saw the best display of skills for the Eagles as they controlled the ball with their passes as they took the ball down the ground.
This passage of play resulted in a goal from Marc Desio who put the ball past the keeper to take the score to 2-0.
Sale came close to scoring shortly after but the ball hit the cross bar and rebounded over the top.
The Eagles held on to finish the season with the win.

The reserves have a few older players that are threatening to 'hang up there boots' at the end of this season but Im sure that even if they do they will remain part of the club and continue to help out the club in other roles.  
Massive thanks to coach Frank Desio. 
The reserves consistent turnout at training all season, Franks positive coaching style, his philosophy of "enjoy yourself or don't bother" and his ability to always find something positive to say to every player at the end of each match have made the reserves a pleasure to play in.
With Larrisa managing the team, ( and managing Frank!) washing the kit, organising the younger players (and her cheesecakes) she has been a huge part of the team this season, thanks to you both.

They started positively looking to score early to unsettle Sale who were challenging for a finals spot if they had a win. Sale got on the scoreboard after splitting the Eagles defence in the first 15 minutes and had there sights on a second and after a dubious challenge and were awarded a penalty which resulted the home side trailing 2-0 after 20 minutes. East Gippsland picked them selves up and started to play their passing game with great affect creating several chances. They were rewarded with a great goal from Tom Forster which lifted the home side.

Fortuna's disappointment began to boil over when a brilliant pass saw Peter Madu take on 2 opponents before slotting the 1st goal of the day for EGUFC to take a 1-0 lead midway through the first half.

The first game back after the school holiday break saw the Eagles two men down with an injured Blair Bain and Hudson Tarling still overseas. A motivational talk from the coach emphasising the importance of team talk and communication created the right mood as the Eagles went into play eager to defend their place on the ladder. The Eagles started strong with a couple of early attempts at goal quickly repelled. Eventually a beautiful pass through the centre from Andrew Chapman was tapped into the net by Harry Lancaster after 20 minutes of play.

A lot of the play was conducted in the middle of the ground for the first half as the ball continued to turn over between the two sides.
Jordan Schaeche and Adam Cheesley were kept busy in the defensive midfield, while Tim Yeung and Will Park worked hard in the attacking midfield to bring the ball forward.
Gradually Churchill begun to exert more influence over the play and Mike Park, hampered by a muscle strain, was kept on the move defending the goal.
The Eagles had their chances but weren't able to score and it was Churchill who scored what was to be the only goal with 37 minutes gone.

The Eagles defence was rock solid all game, repelling just about every Traralgon attack and leaving very little for goalie, Caitlin O'Byrne to do, resulting in a 7-0 win to the Eagles.
Chloe Boulton played a great game across the midfield, linking the defence with attack creating numerous chances for her team up front.

The Eagles Women travelled to Newborough on Sunday to face a team just a few places above them on the ladder. While the weather in the valley was unusually still and sunny the result cast an ominous dark shadow over the Eagles. The final 0-1 result flattered Newborough and disappointed the Eagles.
The game had been in progress less than 1 minute when an unfortunate handball gave Newborough a freekick in 30 metres out in the centre of the field. Newborough was quick to set up while the Eagles finalised their wall keeper Brianna East was caught of her line and the kick sailed over her head and into the back of the net. The remainder of the first half was well balanced with each side creating one clear opportunity but neither being able to convert.
The half time talk focussed on sticking to the match plan and keeping your shape. The women went out with renewed effort and were immediately in attach having Newborough on the backfoot. They were pressing and their pressure created a corner. The training drills had them well organised and they kept the ball in the box resulting in panic amongst the Newborough defenders and five consecutive corners. Their persistence paid off with a gold edged opportunity five metres out of an open goal with the keeper stranded. Unfortunately, the shot went over the bar. The Eagles continued to maintain possession and had the momentum when defender Rachel Rogers went down with an ankle injury. Captain Jenna Coppa was pushed forward and her presence created further opportunities but no conversions.
The women having been working hard on the training track and improving every match. However, they will need to convert the hard work into results if they want to play finals. The close loses while honourable has left them in a precarious ladder position. The forfeit last week meant that they did not have a competitive match and broke their momentum, hopefully they will have an opportunity to redeem themselves against Churchill next Sunday.

The seniors had the long journey to Newborough with several players out due to work or injuries. Facing a Newborough-Yallourn side looking for revenge after the Eagles beat them 3-2 in the last encounter the Eagles were looking forward to the challenge and started the game very positively. 
At the 20th minute mark Newborough finally broke through the Eagles defence to score but that did not deter the Eagles side who were not only holding the opposition at bay but were creating chances themselves. Against the run of play the home side found the net again finishing the first half with a 2-0 lead...
The eagles come out in the second half knowing they were still in this contest and were giving their all. With the back line of Jarrah Feather, Rob Turner and Andrew Mills playing superbly unfortunately an injury to young Coby Jarvis who had to be replaced with another young rising star Will Park who immediately let the opposition know his ability and talents by creating several chances. The Eagles were dealt another blow when Josh Perry came of with a hamstring injury. Stalwart of the club Jason Steele came on to try and sneak a goal teaming up with Will Park upfront. This Eagles side were showing so much courage and were playing some great soccer with end to end action from both sides. The home side managed to net a goal in the second half to finish winning 3-0 but again the Eagles can hold their heads up high after displaying so much spirit and determination this week and are looking forward to their next match against Churchill this week at home...

LVSL 2017 RESERVES. Round 16.NYUSC 2 EGUFC 0 SPONSORED BY EAST GIPPSLAND TREE SERVICES.The Eagles Reserves had a tough game away against Newborough Yallourn United going down 2-0.
On a slippery pitch, both team went hard early in what was a physical match.
The ball moved between both teams, with plenty of turnovers with few scoring opportunities.
Mike Park did well to save an early freekick, while David Pachl was unlucky not to score with a well struck free kick from 25 metres when the keeper managed to deflect the ball over the top of the goal 32 minutes in.
Supported by Tony and Marc Desio, Tom Trch and Adam Cheesley across the backline, Park was kept busy defending the net throughout the match, making some great saves in what Coach Frank Desio described as a Best on Ground performance.
NYUFC managed to score one minute before the break.
There were a couple of scoring opportunities immediately after the break but the Eagles just couldn't find the back of the net.
Despite the Eagles working hard to bring the ball down the ground, a strong NYUSC defence saw the ball turnover each time.
At 56 minutes, NYUSC managed to break through and score another goal.
After a hard clash of heads between Butling and Pachl, Butling come off under the blood rule and with no subs available, the remaining 10 players had to put in some extra effort.
Despite the loss, the team still improved on their previous performance against this team and Coach Desio continues to find the positives in this ongoing improvement.

EGUFC UNDER 12S SAP GALA

On Saturday, six of EGUFC U12s Gold team, who are members of East Gippsland's 'Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) along with five Sale FC players travelled to the Darebin International Sports Centre in Thornbury, to participate in this year's first Gala Day. Bringing together the best players selected at the Under 12's level from Melbourne and across the state.
The Gala Days are an opportunity for players to experience competitive action, whilst allowing them to showcase the key skills they have been developing in their training program. East Gippsland's SAP representatives include seven players from Bairnsdale and six from Sale, who work under the tutelage of EGUFC U12s Gold coach Marc Bain here in Bairnsdale, and NPL Women's player, Anouk Meereboer in Sale. 

Marc Bain described the day, "The East Gippsland group acquitted themselves well against very strong opposition from Whittlesea, Bendigo and Laylor, with the group able to show good progress against the core skills of football during a very enjoyable event. The boys train on two additional days per week, over and above their regular club training, which is a big commitment to a game they love. It's fantastic to be able to provide the SAP Program in Bairnsdale and Sale, with the assistance of Gippsland FC. Ultimately, EGUFC and Sale will reap the benefit of better quality players not only in the short but also longer term."

It was another tough day at the office for the Reserves, going down to the second placed Olympians 5-2.
The Olympians got a lucky goal seven minutes in when the ball hit the post and rebounded into the net, unfortunately this set the tone for the game.
Play was mostly controlled by the Olympians although the Eagles weren't without scoring opportunities, they struggled to take advantage of them.
Aidan Jewell put on a strong performance up front, taking the ball down the ground and working well with Will Park and Tim Yeung.
The Olympians midfield was strong and were able to keep the ball turning over, keeping defenders Marc and Tony Desio very busy.
Yeung and Will were moved to the midfield to put further pressure on the ball but a well executed chip dropped into the net over Mike Park's head with only five minutes to go saw the Olympians go to the break 2-0.
The second half saw some changes in an attempt to shut down

The eagles where coming off a great game last week, full of confidence after falling short and were determined to make amends and started brilliantly against 2nd placed Olympians. The home team got on the scoreboard first finding the net with a great goal from Josh Perry after some great build up from the Eagles midfield. Olympians responded immediately finding a hole in the Eagles defence, slotting in an equaliser.
With both teams going into half time at 1-1.
After the break both sides were playing some fantastic soccer. The Olympians managed to exploit the very tight Eagles defence and went up 2-1. That did not deter the homeside and were looking for an equaliser which they found after a beautiful free kick from Paul Apostoleris found the head of Josh Perry who brilliantly headed the ball into the back of Olympians net levelling this the game 2-2.
This game was played at a frantic pace with both sides giving there all. The momentum shifted to the Olympians and they found three more goals. The Eagles fought right to the final whistle and should be very proud of themselves after showing a great deal of determination against these top sides.
The clubs future in all grades is looking very very bright.

The U16’s Eagles took to their home ground and left their supporters smiling with a solid 4-1 win against Monash under a beautiful winter sun.
The Eagles started the match with good early pressure that saw repeated entries forward and several strong chances on goal. Reward came in the 10th minute when captain Jarrod Stephens slotted a neat low shot past the right post.
Gaining the first goal saw no lapse from the Eagles efforts as they continued to create repeated shots on goal. Peter Madu was lively in attack keeping the Monash defenders constantly on the run.
At the 17th minute a free kick taken by Lyndon Harper near the centre circle resulted in superb delivery into the box that gave Jarrod Stephens opportunity to steer his second past the Monash keeper. 
At the other end of the ground there was solid defence coming from Oscar Sexton who seemed to be everywhere Monash attempted to attack and Cam Dare who repeatedly cleared the ball from danger.
At the 20th minute Monash scored against the flow of play with a soft chip over Eagles keeper Liam Smith. The Eagles entered the half time break leading 2-1.
The second half started in similar fashion to the first with the Eagles biggest challenge the mental battle to ignore the negativity of the Monash team.
The play of the day came early as Callum Harper took a forward half free kick, sending it into the box where Brady Spears timed the strike perfectly to hit the back of the net on the volley, earning an enthusiastic cheer from the Eagles faithful. 
Not long after a short kick in from the Monash keeper saw Callum Harper in the action again with a long strike registering the Eagles on the score sheet again for a 4-1 lead. 
There was no further addition to the score as the Eagles defence continued to withstand all Monash attempts even with one player benched by injury. When the final whistle blew with the Eagles 4-1 they recorded two wins in a row and their second win over Monash for 2017.

GOLD too strong for Sale...
Round 13 saw U 14 Gold Eagles playing at home against Sale White. The young Eagles dominated the first half with so much of the ball but a clever Sale White defence held their back line so tight, the Eagles being caught offside time after time.
At half time both teams were goalless. A quick regroup and tactics talk from coach Paul Davies saw the 14s Gold come out the second half ready to make amends for a scoreless first half. The home teams first goal was scored by Rhonan Davies and the second moments later by Jai Nichols.
The Eagles defence was holding strong. Jai Nichols bagged yet another goal to see Eagles leading 3-0.
Sale finally managed a goal when 'on form' Eagles goalie Connor McGivern slipped when coming out and Sale seized their only opportunity to score. Brodee DiPalma took an opportunity to find the back of the net bringing the total up to 4-1 and victory for EGUFC U 14

Eagles fall, one short...
As soon as the whistle blew for the start of the match, the EGUFC Women's side were keen to make every minute count in this tough match against the Monash Wolves. With the end result being a 3-2 loss, the Eagles determination didn't really kick in til the second half.
With a 5-0 loss the last time the two sides met- this game was sure to be an interesting one to watch as the Eagles have come so far since that last meet. 
The Wolves scored 2 of there goals in the first half- leaving the Eagles 2-0 at half time. There were a couple of goal opportunities for the Eagles- but the ball just couldn't find the back of the net. 
The wolves were able to lock in there 3rd goal a few minutes into the second half- but the Eagles bounced back quickly.
The Eagles played extremely well and dominated in the second half. With a lot more talk on the field, more accuracy and strength behind there passes they were rewarded with there first goal 11 mins into the second half by a massive goal from Olivia Zagami. Zagami scored from nearly the 18 yard box-and what a rippa of a goal it was. 
The Eagles kept the ball in there half, and were first to the ball and not afraid to go in hard. 
Captain Jenna Coppa was able to score the Eagles final goal with a fews minutes left in the match. The Eagles may have lost by 1- but there spirits were high and they should be commended for how they played against this team. There was a massive improvement from the last game against the Wolves.

Gold’s teamwork and determination pays off..
Anticipation was high for the U12 division 1 match between EGUFC Gold and Fortuna Black on Saturday at Howitt Park. Last time these two teams met Fortuna came out on top at 5 goals to 3 and they currently sit second on the ladder.  
Today the Gold team demonstrated what was to be the theme of their match – great teamwork, passing and dogged, determined defence. They won convincingly with a score of 5 – 0.
The first two goals were scored by Matthew Lal in the first five minutes following fantastic passing through the midfield. A great joyful cry from Coach Marc Bain said it all. “You’re playing football!”
Harry Lancaster demonstrated his speed at the 8 minute mark to run down the middle and kick the ball into the back of the net.
The back and midfield players demonstrated some brilliant pressure on Fortuna Black to get the ball out of their offence zone. Big kicks and passing from Angus Burchall, and Quinn Carmichael enabled the ball to be moved out of the opposition’s scoring area.
The final goal for the first half was scored by Andrew Chapman with a great shot into the right side of the net.
Fortuna Black came out determined in the second half but Gold’s defence kept them scoreless to the end.  
The final and only goal of the second half was set up by Cooper Bennet. Whilst playing a new position of mid field, he drew a foul. Harry Lancaster stepped up to score from the penalty spot.
Special mention today for Gold’s determination and ability to “shut down” Fortuna’s pivotal player. Enzo Blackmore, Ronan Moors and Quinn Carmichael followed their task keeping him out of the game with defensive pressure and fancy footwork.

After a heartbreaking loss last week the Eagles where all fired up to take on Monash who are sitting second on the table. With revenge on their minds the home team started the game positively. Both teams were playing some great soccer. After 20 minutes a Monash forward fired a scorcher from 25 metres out giving goal keeper Dave Pachl no chance.. that spurred the young Eagles on looking for an equaliser but unfortunately conceeded an own goal. 
The home side went into half time 2-0 down but definitely not out of this great tussle.
The second half the Eagles came out full of hunger and with a beautiful cross from Mark Bain young Josh Perry got on the end of it and calmly slotted the ball into the Monashs goal.
With the Eagles all fired up looking for an equaliser, once again against the run of play Monash found the net
 making it 3-1.

That did not deter the home side and they were piling on the pressure and after some great play Perry slotted in his second for the game. 
The Eagles were full of confidence and after a beautiful set play Paul Apostoleris found some space and drove home an equaliser.
This game was poised for a great finish. End to end stuff, then a scramble in Monashs penalty box with the ball loose Apostoleris pounced on the opportunity to put the Eagles in front scoring his second goal of this game.


That sparked the Wolves into action and found a way to equalise breaking through a resilient defence led by Ben Siers. 
With both sides looking for a winner it was a defensive lapse in the Eagles backline that allowed Monash to score in the last minute to take all 3 points home.  
Although the home side lost, coach Toly Apostoleris said he could not have been prouder of his side and is looking forward to the future of this club with determination and heart it is showing...
