Our Men’s Championship 3 team were the only senior victors this weekend, with Alexander Edwards and Kaspar Deane both scoring in the first half to consolidate the team’s 2-1 win over DOSA. Our Men’s Championship 1 team suffered a tough defeat against University SC at Olinda Grove last Saturday, with Toby Dove and David Abbott each scoring goals, but unable to prevent the 2-4 loss. The Men’s Championship game looked more promising after the team managed a bit of a comeback in the second half, thanks to goals by Fergus Bridge, Charlie Howcroft, and Samuel James. However a late goal by University saw the final score tied at 3-3.
Our Women’s Championship 1 team looked even with their opposition at half time, thanks to a brace by Holly Mayo in the first half. However the Pirates couldn’t tip the score over to their favour in the remaining 45, with the Glenorchy Knights ultimately winning the game 2-5. Our Women’s Championship team had a similar outcome, with the half time score looking even at 1-1, but a barrage of Newtown Eagles goals in the second half saw the game ending 1-6.
