The U13.1 boys traveled up to Manly to take on St Augustines College in the second round of the State Cup. Unfortunately the cob-webs were still set in from the early morning wake up call and St Augustines had the run of play in the first half and put in 2 scrappy goals. The boys took on the “advice” (read = spray) from Julio during the half time break and came out and played a much better, controlled, game in the second half but were unable to convert their opportunities into goals.
Parent points were spread across Ruben, TK, Lochlan and SamL. This shows that the defensive team had a lot of work to do and Jacob was no exception being kept very busy by the right sided attackers.All the boys all played well, with the midfield of Matty D and Jai working overtime without any subs. The Wilsonator, Jack, and SamM threatened when they had the ball, but came up just short.
Congratulations to At Augustines who will face up against the winner of Coogee v Epping. If they win that game they are likely to play Figtree. Albion Park and Shellharbour have also made it through to the next round. It will be interesting to see how all of these teams progress through the competition.
