Angelo made it a brace in the second half when his left foot scuffed volley rebounded back to him on his right and he lobbed the goal keeper. A great defensive display from all the boys especially Josh who won his tackles and headers to stop waves of attacks.

    U16's had a high scoring draw today with the teams shared eight goals between them, with Wingate always taking the lead, only to be pegged back each time. With 1 minute to go the boys conceded a late penalty which cost them the win. The boys created a stack of goal scoring opportunities throughout but could not find the net.
