Newlands vs Freemantle (0-1)
Newlands started well against in their first game against Freemantle, they moved the ball well and with the introduction on George and Louie in the team, we were confident with the ball and had several shot s at goal. Unfortunately we let Freemantle into the game and their confidence grew. Just before the half time whistle they snuck in with a well finished goal. Second half was very much the same with Newlands playing well and finding space and gaps in the defence. Our corners were well taken and gave us opportunities to attack the goal. The first game finished 1-0 to the visitors.
Newlands vs Freemantle (1-1)
After a pep talk from Mr Day the players took the field for the second game. It was like deja vu, the boys again attacked in force and managed to create some shooting opportunities but again with no luck. Tiredness seemed to be playing a part of the lack of goals and unfortunately again Freemantle broke our through our defence and scored to make it 0-1. Half time Mr Day rallied the troops and you could see they were visibly lifted and ready for the 2nd half. The Freemantle defence stood strong as we threw everything at it. With 5 mins to go and 1 goal down, Mr Day through caution to the wind and sent Josh up front, bringing Charlie on to play a defensive midfield role. The change had an instant effect we dominant in all areas and Freemantle with their backs against goal were defending well. However with only a minute to go Newlands worked the ball wide and beat a few players, the ball then moved to George in the box who passed to Louie who finished well into the corner and the game finished with a well deserved draw!!
