On a sunny, slightly chilly Saturday morning, the SJFC U8’s prepared to play against Westwood Park Typhoons, one of the league’s strongest teams.
The Typhoon’s lived up to their name, starting the game very lively and exerting pressure on SJFC. That pressure paid off, and saw the Typhoon’s take a 4-0 lead by the second quarter.
After some reshuffling by our coaches, the SJFC U8’s came out with a renewed purpose, solidifying the defence and showing their teeth on the counter attack!
It worked as the boys got back in to the game, with a hat trick from Hassan Merali.
With the score 4-3 by end of third quarter, the game was finely poised, but the Typhoon’s showed their experience, scoring a killer goal in quarter four to talk an unassailable lead.
The final score was 5-3 to Westwood Park Typhoon’s. It was a great performance by our U8 lads, who left the pitch with their heads held high with a fantastic performance.
