Hornsby Berowra Eagles Under 8
Match Report round 7, Sunday 21 May
HBE Under 8 v Pennant Hills White U8
It was a beautiful morning for footy and a nice start time of 10am allowed a little extra sleep before the game. Maybe the extra sleep was a factor in the Eagles slow start as Penno got a few early goals on board. Harry Deveney, Ben, Zach, and Emma tried hard in defence and we saw some great runs through the centre from Sam Crewe, supported by Lucas, Hunter, and Emily. Our forwards Max, Oliver, Jacob, and Sam Ryan provided some vocal support for their team mates.
The 2nd quarter was a more even affair and Sam Crewe kicked the first goal for the Eagles. This was followed by some equally great goals from Emma Simpson-Lee in the 3rd quarter, and Max McPherson kicked three goals in the last quarter.
Those sticky oranges must have done the trick at half time as we saw some good marks in the last two quarters. Lucas Allen made some great goal saving efforts at the last line of defense.
We saw the importance of run and carry throughout the day to set-up team mates and move the ball down the field. Some of the best runs came from Emily Browne who has a mighty boot for one of the smallest players on the field! Max McPherson had the kick of the day with a huge roost from the back line to the forward line.
Harry Deveney was great all over the ground all day with some solid marks and kicks and was a deserving player of the match, as voted by his team mates and endorsed by the coach.
Thanks to all the parents who came to support. Next week we have a few people away so Justin Raymond (Oliver’s Dad) will be coach for the day and Adam (John Ryan’s Dad) will be assistant coach.
