Six Savoys head­ing to Coun­try Cup

Alpine Observer - - Classifieds -

WHILE some of their Myrtle­ford team­mates will have a week off from Al­bury Wodonga Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion play, six young Savoy soccer play­ers will head to Shep­par­ton for the Vic­to­rian Coun­try Cup this week­end.

Hay­den Van der Steeg, Jesse Var­danega (both U15), Liam Mac­gowan (U14), Sum­mer Caponec­chia (U12 girls), and Lachy Mac­Gowan and Zane Var­danega (both U12) have all been picked to play.

The tour­na­ment will be held over three days and in­cludes teams from Bal­larat, Bendigo, Echuca Moama, Gee­long, War­rnam­bool, Shep­par­ton and Sun­raysia.

Play­ers in the un­der 12s and un­der 14s will line up in three games on both Satur­day and Sun­day.

The un­der 12 girls play two games on Satur­day and three on Sun­day while the un­der 15s have two matches on each day.

Semi-finals and grand finals for all age groups will be con­tested on Mon­day.

Ear­lier this year five of the six Myrtle­ford play­ers took part in the branch cham­pi­onships.

Lachy Mac­gowan and Sum­mer Caponec­chia were suc­cess­ful in the Rive­rina cham­pi­onships at Coota­mundra both win­ning ti­tles with their teams, while Hay­den Van der Steeg, Jesse Var­danega and Liam Mac­gowan played in their re­spec­tive com­pe­ti­tions at Grif­fith.

At the half­way mark of the sea­son most of Myrtle­ford’s ju­nior teams are well posi- tioned to make the finals.

The un­der 12s are cur­rently the best placed side in third.

The un­der 14s are fifth and the un­der 11s and un­der 13 girls are both sev­enth, while the young and im­prov­ing un­der 16s are ninth.
