Match Centre

The weekend kicked off with our WSL team travelling up to Launceston to take on League newcomers, Riverside Olympic FC. In round 7 of 21, and after a tough start to the season, this was an important match for our Senior Women’s team. The weekend before saw a key member of the team, Maeve Dunbabin, suffer a fractured tibia during the game which made for a huge loss to the team. Thankfully, our Pirate crew was bulked out with 3 of our talented U18’s: Hannah Graham-Smith, Imogen Muller, and Olivia Harnwell, who all made a crucial impact during the last legs of a blockbuster game. Finding themselves 0-2 down in the 81st minute was not an ideal place to be, however it was new recruit, Zoe Nickson, who took charge in heralding a come-back which scored our WSL Pirates their first league tie and point on the ladder. With minutes left in the game, Zoe pounced on an opportunity to counter the Riverside keeper’s throw to their defence, winning the ball and lobbing it over the keeper’s head with a single touch. Two minutes later, the ever-reliable Jade Walker chipped the opposition keeper again, equalising the score. Our Pirates were unlucky not to score a third in extra time when Maddy Lane blasted a powerful cross into the side netting, however they walked away from the match with a newfound confidence. Well done Pirates!

Sunday saw the bulk of our teams at Darcy Street, where our Women’s Championship team started their day bright and early with a 9.30 match up against South Hobart. The team fought hard and did well to work their way to some almost-opportunities, however the home side was too strong, defeating our Pirates 0-7. Later, our Men’s Championship 1 team took to the field in what they knew would be a tough match up. Finding themselves down 0-2 at half time was not ideal, but the team dug deep and also managed an epic comeback in the dying moments of the game, with Arlo Milne and Finlay Mcguire netting the goals for our lads. In another crucial episode, our Men’s Championship Pirates took on the ladder-leaders in a must-win match. Superstar Ollie Maxwell found the netting 11 minutes into the match, but sadly, the opposing team scored early after half time break. It was eventually up to Ollie to save the day with another banger of a goal, securing a 2-1 victory for our Senior Men. This win now sees our Championship Men’s team equal to South Hobart, having earned 16 points from 7 games, only being separated by a goal difference of 4.

Our senior teams now have a short break while Statewide Cup games are being played this weekend, with our U18 Girls team featuring in the Semi Finals tonight at Darcy Street. Let’s get out and support them in their campaign for the silverware! Best of luck to all our Pirates this weekend.
