Co­bram Roar 11 d Al­bury

United 0 With a later start time at Co­bram’s home ground, the Roar were con­fi­dent go­ing into the game.

With a full list of play­ers, the game started pos­i­tively with a few shots on goals.

Af­ter build­ing some mo­men­tum, the goals started to flow.

Joseph Allen opened his goal ac­count with a great header, fol­lowed by goals from Mikael Corso, Sonny Rowe and Craig Keech, who kicked his first goal of the sea­son.

With a great start to the sea­son the Roar are sit­ting top of the lad­der.

Goals: J Allen 3, S Rowe 3, M Corso 1, Mikael Ar­tavilla-Bennett 1, M Alkundi 1, L Quianne 1 and C Keech 1. Co­bram Roar 12 d Al­bury

United 0 From the out­set Co­bram pushed for­ward with num­bers and pep­pered United’s goals.

Co­bram’s de­fence of Thomas Corso, Luke Goodin, Harry Pater­son and Lachie Kelly was im­pen­e­tra­ble. Harry pro­vided great run and carry, push­ing the ball for­ward, and Thomas was cool, mar­shalling the back­line.

Sonny Rowe, Jesse Wake­man and Lo­gan Stone pro­vided some won­der­ful through balls which re­sulted in goals and Jake Brin­cat was in the thick of the ac­tion creat­ing chances.

Jack­son Coop­man and Jake Kalz were lethal up front and Xavier Spiller was un­lucky to not con­vert from the penalty spot.

The goals were shared well with Jack­son scor­ing four, Jake three, Jesse and the fourth minute of the match. This started an avalanche of goals for Sam, who had net­ted six by half­time.

Th­ese were fa­cil­i­tated by a dom­i­nant de­fence and mid­field who kept feed­ing the balls to him.

The Roar, buoyed by their size­able lead, started off the sec­ond half a lit­tle slug­gishly. This let Al­bury sneak in a goal.

But that kicked Co­bram back into gear, with Toby Shilling and Ella Liss­ing­ton scor­ing an­other two goals.

It was a great team ef­fort by every­body and a wellde­served vic­tory.

Goals: S. Wood, T. Shilling and E. Liss­ing­ton.

Best: S. Wood, D. Cheong and A. Fo­tia.
