Last Sunday we ventured down to Cromer Park for
our Round 1 derby against Manly United.
Unfortunately, we were relegated to their no 2 oval
(as the men had the synthetic pitch).
It was great to see the Northbridge supporters
claiming the hill, with some well placed protection
from the sun.

Round 01 v Manly United Match Report: U13 WPL1
SYNPOSIS:
The conditions at Cromer Park against Manly FC for round 1 were hot, humid and no hint of even a zephyr.
Throughout the vicissitudes of the match it was delightful to see NB instigating possession football, switching play,
moving the ball wide, creating space and not kicking aimlessly to 50/50 outcomes. Going into the second half 1-2
down, NB stayed focused and did not lose their resolve to win. The frustrating conclusion was that Manly had only
two genuine attempts on goal, while NB produced seven. Although NB won 2-3 the score lacked any verisimilitude,
the score could have been 7-2!
FIRST HALF:
The garrulous voices of the crowd descended to a
susurrant noise as both teams positioned themselves
for the start of play. At the sound of the whistle Chloe
started the proceedings by sending NB into a
northerly direction. From midfield Sophie N propelled
a well weighted ball forward, connecting with Chloe,
then onto Eliza who manoeuvred past a defender,
aligned her cross hairs and shot the ball just wide of
the target, for NB first attempt on goal. Within the first
10 minutes, Heidi, Kate and Sophie clearly
dominated the midfield. This allowed the backs to
move forward, which further impeded Manly’s options
upfront. Manly players concentrated their attack down
NB’s left flank. Unfortunately for Manly they were
confronted by Zoe and Hayley, two tenacious
defenders.
Our
goalie
Ashley
confidently
orchestrated switching the play between the left and
right backs, on numerous occasions. Some of our
play was poetry in motion, for example when Zoe
dispossessed a Manly forward, teamed up with
Hayley, who passed the ball back to our keeper.
Ashley, not vacillating, moved the ball quickly to
Fredo who with silky skills connected with Olivia.
Olivia seeing opportunities unfolding upfront sent the
ball back into attack.
For the opposition to score, Manly had to produce
something special and it presented itself via one of
their midfielders who placed the ball perfectly behind
our defensive backs: Score 1-0 to Manly FC. Eliza,
Chloe and especially Pascal continued to pepper the
opposition’s goal to no avail. Manly’s first goal was a
cruel turn of events as NB hitherto had dominated all
facets of the match.
Hayley and Ashley discussing tactics
Fresh from the bench, Ella, Pascal, Tara and Hannah
revitalised potency to NB. A ball from Sophie N on to
Hannah who with perspicacious judgement skilfully
passed two Manly defenders and, accompanied by
the vociferous cries from the NB parents, powered

the ball over the keeper for a fantastic goal: 1-1. This
play was reminiscent of Messi, Pele, and may I say,
George Best before his love of a whisky.
Zoe always giving her best.
An unsuccessful NB switch of play to clear the ball
the out of the defensive half allowed opportunistic
Manly their second goal: 2-1.
Both Olivia and Fredo team up well.
SECOND HALF:
Perhaps it was Danny’s half time speech that inspired
from NB to come out for the second half in top gear
and with brutal intent. Again this second half was
completely dominated by NB - an exciting game to
watch with penalties, near misses and the assassin
style shooting from cool characters Heidi and Ella.
Tara having a great game.
Ella and Hannah: formidable.
The team continued to produce excellent passages of
play, including passes from Emmanuelle & Kate and
leading to Heidi and Ella each delivering well
executed goals. 2-3!!
Well done Coach and Team on the 13’s first victory
for the season!
The elusive Pascal.

Round 01 v Manly United Match Report: U15 WPL1
The girls preparing for the match
It was another tough day for the Northbridge U15
girls having to play in very hot conditions against a
strong and skilful opposition. Manly started the game
strongly, they controlled the play, and they were
attacking well. The Northbridge defence was able to
keep Manly scoreless.
A mounting number of attacking raids by Manly,
Northbridge were holding out the opposition, who
were spending a lot of time in their attacking half of
the field.
The Northbridge midfield had a tough task, but they
started to win more possession and show more
control. Emma H and Antonia started creating
opportunities for Maddy K, Anna and Xanthe. Gen
had a great long range shot at goal, but it just sailed
over the crossbar.
Manly were attacking again, but Holly was able to get
to the ball first, then pass it to Xanthe then to Anna
and again over the crossbar. Then a good clearance
kick from Emma Mckellar, under a lot of pressure,
and again almost a goal to Maddy K. Alice turned
defence into attack with a pass to Xanthe then a
good ball to Maddy K, nice shot just off target.
Then one of the most promising plays of the first half.
Tahlia put pressure on the Manly defence and
regained possession for the Northbridge girls. She
then crossed to Xanthe, who controlled the ball well,
a shot, only to be saved by the Manly goalie.
Manly created a lot of opportunities to score in the
first half Phoebe and the girls all had their turn at
defusing pressure situations, and Maddie C our cool
headed goalie, cleaned up at the back. Hannah also
came on and showed great skill and composure in
defence.
There were a couple more opportunities created by
Northbridge before halftime. Emma H gave a great
pass to Tahlia who was just off target and Tash to
Taylor creating pressure, although halftime came and
still nil all.
In the second half, Northbridge were controlling the
midfield and putting more pressure on Manly.
Northbridge put together a great set of passes, Taylor
to Tahlia to Anna to Antonia, and then the shot went
just wide.
A good play from Manly let them have a shot on goal,
but with good pressure from Phoebe, the ball hit the
post, never any doubt, no goal to Manly.
Tahlia and Xanthe working in attack

It was a very even tussle in the second half. There
was a nice cross from Tash, but no goal. Emma H
fought hard and won a penalty, another lovely and
very long strike from Gen-almost a goal.
Some great play and a good display of effort and skill
from both teams saw a very exciting nil all draw at full
time.
The Girls all played well and were unlucky not to
come away with a win or at least a couple of goals.

Round 01 v Manly United Match Report: U17 WPL1
The game started at a frantic pace with both teams
trying to control the midfield. Early into the game the
Northbridge girls "pressed" high up field and were
rewarded gaining turn over ball, creating two good
shots from just inside the box from Daisy and Zoe
both were well saved by Manly's keeper.
Manly made a few raids but they were well contained
by our back four.
Around the 15-20 minute mark Julia, Sarah and
Daisy created a number of chances but were not able
to put the ball in the net. A few minutes later Julia
broke through midfield on the left hand side and
passed the ball to Jess who headed it on to Daisy
who raced through their defense and drove the ball
from just inside the box into the top left hand corner.
Well taken Daisy!
Towards the end of the first half we let Manly into the
game with lack of ball retention in the midfield and
gave them opportunities to score with Hannah
required to make a few telling saves. Manly also
wasted a few chances shooting wide and or over the
bar.
The second half continued to be an arm wrestle in
the midfield with all our girls working hard at chasing
down the ball. Our defense remained strong with
Bridget, Imogen and Winnie cutting off any through
balls and Steph making some good solid tackles.
As the half progressed we created a number of
chances some becoming very close to being
converted. Mid-way through the half we took a corner
from the left hand side of the pitch, their keeper
misjudged the flight of the ball in the wind and it
floated over her head, Zoe pounced on the chance to
put the ball in the back of the net, 2 – NIL. Great
anticipation Zoe!!
The last 10 minutes was a battle but the girls worked
extremely hard and didn't allow Manly a chance to
score. The game finished 2 – NIL
The key feature of the game was that everyone
worked extremely hard throughout the whole game,
constantly chasing and pressing the opposition when
they had possession. We also created many chances
and scored two good goals. You should all be very
proud of your performances as it was a GUTSY win.
Before signing off I would like to make a special
mention of Alice Falconer's performance (from the
Under 15's) as her contribution was nothing short of
outstanding once again.
