Being the fourth game in a row at Charles Bean and with 3 wins, the match was destined to be a fight. Even Chelsea our mascot was ready to cheer us on!
UTS started strong and in control. It didn’t take long before UTS were in the lead with 2 goals scored by none other than our resident striker Becky Harper. The midfield and defense lines held their ground, until Asquith saw an opportunity and score not once but twice. All of a sudden it was 2-all. WAA3 are notoriously known for performing better under pressure. It was clear the girls were more motivated now than ever as the strikers, midfielders and defenders were battling to keep possession whilst Goalkeeper Pepita Bernasconi diminished Asquith’s attempts at goals. UTS needed to prove why we deserve to remain undefeated. In fact new comer Emily Mew-Sum took initiative and scored 2 goals against Asquith frustrating them, making it 4-2.
Nearing the end of the game, UTS held their heads high under the stress of the heat and returning fierce tackles to Asquith.
Alas, the final whistle is blown.
The game proved: the team that fights together, stays together!
WAA3 finished the week 1st on the ladder with many more fights to come.
With two losses and a draw floating above our heads, the WAA4 fought back in the fourth week taking away a win of 2-1 against Lane Cove.
But let us recap this epic battle of Blackman Artificial…
We launched onto the field with fire, the ball sitting for majority of the game in the winning end of the field. Two goals were scored with quick succession early by Lisa smashing the ball in using a gap that the opponent kindly left for us and Julia encouraging the opposition to score an own goal. Overall the offense were strong with Chayna having many opportunities to score, Ellen capitalising on the stray left-side balls – it is for certain that this season will see more goals.
The defense and midfield were strong, the only reason the opposition scored was due to some early-in-season puff that will be sorted as we progress into the winter. Otherwise; Tiffany, Amy, Lauren, Santi and Daria showed Lane Cove “WHAT IS UP!” with a quick refresher in the definition of “tenacity”.
And for the goals, we had the pleasure of rotating through three goal-keepers. Li held up the first half with her fear of nothing attitude, Heather had a short-lived game having injured herself during a dedicated sprint towards the opponent and Anna filling in towards the end (props to Anna who filled in for striker, defense and goal).
Overall, WAA4 had more skill/sassy-tude combined than a Zack Snyder film and despite the lack of Daschund puppies/male cheer squad – we crushed it.
It was a night of many firsts…. The first home game of the year, club day, game under the lights…. but most surprisingly the first goal Tom “I’m a Doctor I swear” Terrell has scored off a free kick. UTS dominated on their familiar synthetic surface, and before no time Joe “Gene Pool” Laidler had the team up 1-0 against a St Ives team who didn’t know what they were about to get themselves into. Soon after, with some brilliant passing, Graco pounced on a ball in the box to get the team comfortable with a second goal. St Ives offered minimal attacking chances, and resorted to dirty tactics on our team, only to be hit back with a shoulder charge from Jono “White gordo with hair” Forsyth, sending their player flying but also earning him a yellow card.
With the second half came more quality from UTS, as they ran rings around the opposition. The UTS defenders, had a quiet night, which was highlighted by the fact Martin “Triangle Header” Botica not even getting the opportunity to partake in his favourite ritual of kicking a ball over the sideline fence. Luckily for the keeper, Arif aka Wesley, he had a long jumper on to keep him warm in goals. Nick “Bugs Bunny” Carrot slotted in a quality goal, in between Terrell who managed a brace, to have the boys finish up 5-0. A great game played, moving the boys up to 4th on the ladder, and 1 win off first.
