Inaugural 7v7 2013

Inaugural 7 V 7 competition at FHC The top three teams of the women’s section were invited to compete with the added bonus of playing against the coaches team. Our women’s reserves team had a dinner so could not make it but we had three womens teams and a coaches team. The first game had our senior women from the PL team with some WPA players vs our young guns from the PL team. The young kids lost to the seniors 4-0. The coaches then played the young players from WPA and some PL players. A spiteful match that had three yellow cards and lots of goals., coaches won 6-4. The second round of games had the young guns playing coaches . Some nasty words from the young guns at the coaches physical appearance and perceived lack of skill soon died away after all shots were turned away. Then a goal fest from the coaches had them winning 5-0.The seniors team won over WPA team 3-0 to set up a final against the coaches. The seniors got out to an early lead with Sam Ellis scoring but Travis Brooks hit back from a great pass Troy “Hollywood” Williamson to level the score. The women hit back hard with numerous chances but the men’s back line held firm . The men scored again with Geoff “Rooster” Peacock scoring another great...

Women’s Round 17 Results

Round 17 is complete and congratulations to the three FHC teams who have secured a place in the finals. Pennant B are through as are Metro 1 North and Metro 2 South. Metro 2 North still have a chance, so go team!   Premier League 0 drew Greensborough 0 With this return match against Greensborough, FHC’s Premier League team had a lot to prove after the previous thumping received. Greensborough had a handy inclusion of Australian goal keeper Rachael Lynch and FHC’s Amy Scott was out. This game was going to be hard slog and defeat was going to go to whoever broke first. The first half got underway with Greensborthe FHC back line held and repelled all Greensborough’s efforts. FHC started to get some attacks into the circle and captain Leah Merrett ripped out a back stick shot that had the Greensborough keeper make a miraculous save to prevent FHC from taking the lead. The team adjusted the way they played and had some chances to score but just could not convert. The score at half time nil all. Greensborough started to tag Leah Merrett so we shifted her to center half and moved Olivia Colasurdo to the inside position and this allowed FHC to get some real attack from the flanks and Monica Singh almost scored a goal in a one on one with the Greensborough keeper...
