Patched together, with Matt Ellis from the AAC team and Over 35's keeper, Phil Comely and no bench. This was always going to be tough day out. Despite being outnumbered and "out-healthed" the AAB boys were gallant. They fought back to 1-1 and 3 - 2 but just couldn't find the breakthroughs they needed. Under the circumstances this was a good effort against one of the competition leaders. #AAB #Loss #2017
This loss was Rod's fault. When he set up the field this morning, if he had only put the goal posts an 1 inch (2.5cm to you young folk) to the right, Jeff's thundering shot from outside of the box would have gone in off the post rather than rebound across the goal. We would have gone 1 up and found the momentum of the game much different. As it were the boys conceded not long after that and were then playing a catch up game, playing under pressure.

Well, that was a mess.
Despite a dominating start, including hitting the woodwork ... or in DPFC's case, the steel work, a 15 minute period in the middle of the first half of basic clumsiness meant the opposition were 4 - 0 up and the AAC boys were getting schooled. A late goal in the first half provided the half time score of 1 - 4. The second half was always going to be frantic and the boys scored in the first minute. Despite that and outscoring the opposition in the seco
A gallant effort by a depleted team. Thanks to Joel, Tim, Matthew & Reis for helping out from AAC. Unfortunately, went down 2-3 to Kogarah. Game was played in good spirits from both sides. #2017 #AAB #Loss
A tale of 2 halves. The O35s conceded in the first couple and last couple of minutes of the first half. In between they hit the woodwork, had several shots saved off the line and generally dominated play and possession. Going in to half time down 2 - 1 the boys were confident that the game was there to be taken. A bludger of a second half partly due to injury and fatigue meant the final score was a 2 - 7 loss. Back to training, regroup and it's on again next week. #2017 #O35
Well, that sucked ! On the back foot from the start, the guys struggled to find any rhythm. They went behind early and really struggled to find any rhythm against an energetic opposition. The second goal midway through the first half was quickly followed by a third and the AAB boys went into half time down 0 - 3. Half time came at the right time after an ordinary first 45 minutes but after an inspirational half time talk from a suspended player saw a much improved 2nd half. G
Yeah well, the first half hour was awful. The over 35s we're down 0 - 2 and with Wayne making some gallant saves in goal lucky it was only that. As the boys begin to find their combinations they were able to claw their way back into the game. A few positional changes and more respect for the ball they were able to stem the tide. The second half started well and we started to dominate possession and territory. Pato took a good penalty to make it 1-2. Unfortunately, that quickl
The boys greeted the new season with a brand new team, with 6 new faces, combinations were always going to be an issue. The team acquitted themselves well, but some silly mistakes and crucial options meant the game got away from the boys. Down 2 - 0 at half time, they were able to get back to 2-3 until fatigue took it's toll. We'll get stronger from here. #2017 #O35 #Loss
Dolls Point were 0 - 1 down early in the game when Sans Souci were awarded a penalty from a hand ball in the area. A disallowed goal (pictured) for offside and a number of other missed chances meant this was the half time score. Despite dominating possession and creating a number of good scoring chances, we weren't able to find the goal in the second half. The score went to 0 - 2 mid way into the second half despite being camped in the opposition half. A goal to Dolls Point w
The AAD boys have the mid season jitters, losing 1 - 0 to Forest Rangers. In the process having another player sent off for repeated infringements. Off to training to work out the kinks. #2016 #Loss #AAD
