8 Kangaroo 2017
RND 1, 2018 VS ROUSE HILL RAMS
LOSS 2 -5
The team started with 6 players and no goal keeper vs 9 players. The 7th player arrived at 5 mins in. We scored first against good defence and the score at half time was 1-1. We scored again 10 mins in to the second half to lead 2-1. After that the lack of reserves meant the boys wilted in the 30+ deg heat and the opposition who was rotating players each 5 mins, scored 4 goals in the last 10 minutes to win 5-2.
PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Ryan J
