Football – U10 Girls
Radford 8 defeated Woden 1
By Dianne Wilson, Sports Administration Assistant
Congratulations to the U10 Girls football team who won their first game of the season 8–1 on Saturday, with 5 goals to Lussia Parker and 3 to Kaiya Barsby.
The score is fantastic, but most importantly the girls should be commended on their sportsmanship – when it was discovered that Woden was short players, almost every Radford player put their hand up to play for the opposition. Thank you to Emma Stewart, Lydia Kanis, Sofia Dal Bon and Ayva Chaloner who donned the Woden colours.
The girls have been playing some great football the last few weeks. Peta Macintosh played some dangerous crosses and Poppy Steven was unbeatable in defence. Poppy Smith and Imogen Wallace played their positions well, often finding themselves in plenty of space. Dionne Konstantinou and Georgie Barry continued to play some killer passes. The future of girls’ football at Radford looks promising.
Congratulations also to referee Rose Kidston on an impressive first game.
Football – U12 Division 3 Open
Radford 6 defeated Weston Molonglo 3
By Craig Johnson, parent
Radford recorded a good 6–3 win against Weston Creek on the weekend.
After an unlucky first half with two goals disallowed due to being offside, Radford had to fight back. Going into half time, Weston Creek were up 2–1. A solo effort by Ali Hassan just after the start of the second half brought the team back on level terms, mirroring Will Howarth’s impressive first-half goal.
A fantastic recovery save from Sonny Smith stopped Weston Creek taking back the lead, before Radford broke the deadlock. The team then proceeded to grab a string of goals to seal the win.
