On Thursday 24th June, the Year 7 Soccer Team went to Manson Reserve to play against three other schools - Lilydale High School, Emerald Secondary College and Yarra Hills Secondary College.
During the first match against Lilydale High, we started with a tough fight but Lilydale High started to attack more which lead to a 13-1 loss to us. For the second match when going up against Emerald Secondary College, we worked on our flaws which were passing and being more defensive. We had plenty of attacking chances but couldn’t finish, which lead to an upsetting 5-0 loss. During the third and final match we played Yarra Hills and didn’t have the chance to score against them and they took advantage of our weak passes, resulting in plenty of chances to score for them, leading to a 8-0 defeat. However, we showed an impressive amount of challenge and respect. I think Asher was one of our better soccer players, he was able to strategize about what we could’ve done better and he helped create chances for us to score.

Going out to play soccer for inter-school sports to represent Lilydale Heights was a really fun and exciting day. We got to meet new people and bond with team mates in a new sport for some of us. Everyone on the team played in positions and roles that helped us create scoring chances against Emerald. Our three goals all came from strong defensive efforts and counter attack plays. We continued to help each other the whole game, only conceding 1 goal and getting a 3-1 win! We will go through to Eastern Regionals in early Term 3
