Laidley football rundown

HERE are the Laidley football results from the past week.

Senior Men: the men travelled to Toowoomba to play Willowburn and came away with a very hard fought 3-2 victory which maintains their unbeaten record.

Playing with the bare 11, the side showed great fighting qualities to hang on for a great win.

Goals were scored by Cameron Barnwell, Shaun Scheiwe and Kevin Latta.

Women: on Sunday the women played away to Gatton.

An under strength Gatton side found it tough going, with Laidley finding the back of the net at regular intervals and led the match 4-0 at the break.

Laidley continued to apply the pressure in the second half and in the end were 9-0 victors.

Peta Green grabbed five goals, Karly Owen a hat-trick and Karmen Butler also added to the scoresheet.

The Laidley side all played well and it was a good opportunity to put together some constructive phases of play.

Colts: the Colts travelled to Toowoomba on Friday night to play Garden City White.

In a scrappy game that never reached any great heights Laidley were always behind the eight ball after Garden City had lady luck with them in a couple of early goals.

Laidley never gave up and fought back but in the end went down 3-2.

Juniors

U16 Wildcats: the girls played host to St Ursula’s and took some time to settle in to any sort of rhythm.

Brae-Dee Cole put the home side up 1-nil after 12 minutes but a determined St Ursula’s side fought back to take a 2-1 lead close to halftime before a Kate Lencz goal evened the scores at halftime.

Kate added a second half goal before supplying the final pass for Lauren Porter to score to put the home side up 4-2.

Jessica Huet and Millie Duggan and Sheridan Luiz worked well in defence to prevent any additions to the score.

U14/15 Lions: the Lions played Wanderers at home.

Two early goals by Wanderers put the Lions on the back foot, but they soon found their rhythm and ran out winners 4-2.

Goal scorers were Jeremy Vejle (2) and Tom Brown (2).

Great defensive games by Sam Underwood and Michael Faber and Kelly Tafili in midfield.

U6 Lion Cubs: took on the Wanderers Wagtails and played very well.

The team never gave up trying and put together some good passing and chased the ball with much gusto.

U6 Tiger Cubs: had an awesome game against West Wanderers.

Harrison Alworth showed some fancy footwork in retrieving the ball from the opposition while Elle Parker chased the ball down well.

The whole team worked well together keeping the ball in their possession for the majority of the game.

U7 Leopards: took on the Wanderers Warriors and soon stamped their mark on the match.

The team worked really well together and some good passing moves resulted in great goals.

The Leopards proving too strong getting home by 6-3.

U7 Bobcats: proved too strong for the Warriors team in their clash.

Good passing and some great chasing of the ball were rewarded with 8 goals with the Warriors getting 4 of their own.

U8 Jaguars: had little trouble accounting for the Wallabies and despite a spirited effort by them, the Jaguars proved too strong putting a host of goals into the back of the net.

U9 Tigers: didn’t give up trying but found the Warhorses too quick and despite scoring 4 goals themselves went down 9-4.

It was a good effort and the team showed some good skills and will benefit from the game. Keep up the good work.

U9 Cheetahs: after a slow start the Cheetas came alive in the second half to fight back against the Prep Wilson U9 team.

The fight back wasn’t enough however with the team going down 3-2.

Clayton Melling and Joseph Clough scored the goals while Liam Salter demonstrated his goal keeping skills with some great saves.

U10 Pumas: came up against a well-drilled Withcott team and despite a grand effort by all the players they just couldn’t match Withcott on the score board.

U11 Cougars: took on the Withcott Jaguars and despite trying their best were defeated by a class act.

Goals were scored by Samuel Brown and Shaun Redgrave.

Jacob Gibson played well in his defensive role and the team never stopped trying and certainly gave their supporters plenty to cheer about.
