Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day

I thought today was a good day to shout out to all the women and girls involved in the SBFC community. This year we have more girls registered than ever before and some wonderful coaches, managers and refs.

This is also a great opportunity to congratulate Sarah Lievano, who has been selected into the Hills Football Girls Rep team. Sarah will be playing rep games every 2nd Saturday of the season. Sarah’s mum Mafee has done a fantastic job to pull together our first ever female team for SBFC, playing U12 girls comp on a Sunday. This team is made up of Sarah and some of her rep mates, along with St Bernadette’s girls. Coached by Mafee and managed by Joanne Frketic. We look forward to watching you through the season.

And girls remember as you play, you are inspiring all the young girls at St Bernadettes to be brave and get involved in this male dominated sport. And what a role model we all have this year with Sam Kerr, 2018 Young Australian of the Year and 2017 AFC Women’s Player of the Year.

Summer Football Wrap – Year 6 boys

Summer Football Wrap – Year 6 boys

U12 Warriors – Runners Up in the Grand Final – have had a great season. This wrap is by player Taylor Egan.

“We stated off the season as the unlikely heroes. We won, we drew, we lost. But as the season went on we started to play better together as a team. We went on to win the semi-finals with a nail-biting penalty shootout! The finals got our adrenaline pumping.  It was a tough match against a terrific team, and we lost 3-0.  One of us went an extra mile, put his body on the line and broke his arm!!!  But he saved a goal in the semi’s in the process which ultimately won the game for us – the real hero of our team!!!

Thankyou to SBFC and all of the parents – our team had a great season enjoyed by all who were involved.”

Summer Football wrap for U8 Sharks

Summer Football wrap for U8 Sharks

The U8 Sharks had a great time playing the Hills Football Summer Football season at Kellyville Park on a Thursday night this term. We lost Paloma & Dillon from our winter team, but gained Isaac Frketic (who usually plays for the U8 Tigers). We also replaced our winter coaches of Brendan Sweeney and Enzo Giallonardo with Ryan McGovern.

The boys were playing up in the Under 9’s comp, and for the first few games they really noticed the difference playing against kids in Year 3. But they skilled up and we had some great wins, no better than our last game. The final goal had all us parents in awe. Isaac Frketic kicking in from the sideline, straight to David who headed the ball straight into the goal – amazing stuff.

These boys have developed their football skills so well. Dylan has some fancy footwork going on, Daniel boots the ball down the field, Liam is a happy goalie and is doing some great straight kicks, Cooper is our little pocket rocket, Denzel is dangerous at attacking, Jack has scored some fantastic goals, Isaac Frketic – we’ll happily keep you in the Sharks team. And as for our Colombian duo, David and Isaac, you two are crazy cats and super soccer stars.

Boys you’ll be playing like this one day –  https://youtu.be/hc4-yJS5hcI
