GLOUCESTER BARINGTON PEST CONTROL DIVISION 2
Gloucester Soldier’s Club (Red) vs. Gloucester Farmer’s Markets (Yellow) The first game of the day was a tight tussle between two very committed teams who were determined to keep the ball out of their goals. Tyler showed some fancy footwork for Yellow supported by a determined Tom. Felicity was a rock in defence for Red alongside Aliya and Hamish. Both teams took several shots at goals only to be thwarted by some great effort in goals. A great game with excellent sportsmanship shown by all on the field. Final score 2-1 to Gloucester Farmer’s Markets.
Hunter Special Vehicles (White) vs. Autolec Gloucester (Dark Blue) The second game of the day saw another group of determined young players take the field. Travis and Thomas excelled in goals for White, keeping the score low. Some excellent passing skills were on show with Lucas and Oliver teaming up well for White and Ruben and Jake for Blue. A really tough game, final score 5-2 to HSV.
GB Pest Control (Maroon) vs. Gloucester Bluelight (Green) The final game of the day was another solid game with everyone pulling out their best passes and working well as a team. The girls formed a formidable, dancing defence line for Maroon, kicking out almost everything and getting it to their midfielders, Blake and Joe. Xave continued to commentate throughout the game, pausing every now and then for a header while Bree and Seth worked wonders in goals. Shannon was in outstanding form for Green, working solidly with Brennan and Joseph. Final score did not reflect the game, Maroon’s best yet. 6-2 to Bluelight.
DRIFTA 16’s wins 4-1 against Tinonee Eagles An early goal to Tinonee Eagles in the opening minutes of the game on Saturday 30th June kept Drifta on their toes for the duration of the first half. Kayden Schumann was unlucky not to score after going one on one with their keeper, putting him on his knees to save his attempt, while Aiden Hawkins’s attempt narrowly missed the post. After a great cross from Hayden Reid, Zeke Llewellyn created a wonderful volley only narrowly missing the crossbar.
Drifta regrouped and returned back to the pitch after a half time tactics talk with Beau Blanch levelling the score shortly after kick off. Isaac Earle Broadley saved some good shots, while Isaac Mclure and Tristyn Beard blocked the Eagles’ runaways. A solid pass from Cody Howard across to Kayden Schumann aided Aiden Hawkins to sneak the ball past the Eagles goalie, while Beau Blanch claimed his second goal just minutes after. The Eagles retaliated, sending the ball into the back of the net directly from a long range free kick out of Isaac Earle Broadleys reach. Kelly Groves, Lane Edwards and Harrison Edwards combined well in the midfield. A beautiful curl ball directly from a corner kick by Hayden Reid found the back of the net untouched by any other players, claiming his first goal for the team. Final score Gloucester Drifta 16’s 4 - Tinonee Eagles 2.
Drifta’s next game is at Bulahdelah against Bulahdelah Bullets on Saturday 7th July kicking off at 10:30am.
Laurieton Gala Day.
On Sunday the Gloucester Scorpions 9’s, travelled to Laurieton to take on the best local teams. The day was overcast and threatened to rain but all 9 team members were raring to go for the first game at 9am.
Gloucester 7s A team. This Sunday we headed up to Laurieton to participate in the Camden Haven Rednecks Gala Day. Luckily the rain held off as there was a busy day of soccer to be played. Gloucester A had a great day particularly as we had some new team members. Jarrah Baker was on fire delivering some fabulous goals right from the very first game. Beau Laurie also landed several goals to keep the other team on their toes. Kane Germon kept the pressure on the other teams forcing lots of errors and earning the ball back for Gloucester on many occasions. Hunter McKinley contributed with some huge kicks moving the ball all the way down the other end of the field and past all the oppositions defence. Both Max Dellsperger and Josh Stanton provided great defence. On different occasions they both made some tremendous saves. Scores were Gloucester 2 - 3 Camden Haven Silver, 5 - 0 Camden Haven Sapphires, 3 - 2 Lake Cathie and 0 - 1 Port Stephens Coyotes. Well done Gloucester boys on a great day of soccer and thanks to all the parents for getting them there!
Gloucester Scorpions 9s. The day started with Thomas Coombe peppering the opposition goal during the first half, unfortunately without result. It was left to Toby Warwick and Bradley Higgins to convert some relentless attack into goals.
The second game moved to a new ground were the Scorpions took an early lead and defended for the remainder of the game. Charlie Bignell was a wall throughout the game stopping anything that came his way. Defensive efforts from Liam Walmsley and Jessica Marchant turned all attacking effort aside and when the final whistle went the score was 1-0 to the Scorpions
The third game saw another 1-0 win to the Scorpions, with another huge defensive effort from Jali Wilson and Brodie Baker, and mid field work from Matthew Woods saw the team through to the final whistle.
The fourth game was a real tough one with the team that beat the scorpions at Wauchope up to extend their winning record. The Scorpions spent most of the game defending valiantly with shot after shot raining down on Bradley in goal. Jali, Jessica and Liam were awesome and worked together throughout the game to turn the constant attack away. Bradley and Toby combined late which saw Bradley sneak one past the keeper to take the lead. Unfortunately the opposition struck back almost immediately beating a great effort from Matthew to get the equaliser. 1-1 was the final result.
The final game saw a tired Scorpions return to the small fields, where they met the hosts no1 team and unfortunately 2 early goals in succession caught a very tired Scorpions napping. Although the team rallied and pressed the Redbacks defence, they were unable to get any goals back. A late finish, saw the Redbacks take the win 0-3. The team continues to improve each time they play together and one of the best plays of the day, combined Thomas to Toby back to Thomas and through to Brodie whose shot on goal was brilliantly saved by the redback keeper.
Great work team, another successful trip away.

Saturday’s game in Gloucester, we played Tuncurry Forster Gold, 4th on the ladder, This was the team we played at the beginning of the season and were beaten 13 - 0, so we knew we would be in for a tough game, We were a bit flat footed to start with, and Tuncurry got away with some quick goals, to lead by 5- 0 at half time. We picked up our game and only let 2 more goals in finishing at 7 - 0.
On Sunday we played our make up game against Old Bar. Old Bar currently 3rd on the ladder, The team came with their game face on. Sam Collie scored our first goal 15 minutes into the game with Old Bar scoring with 5 minutes to go in the first half. In the second half we missed several attempts at goal, our defence line dug deep and didn’t let Old Bar through, At full time we were 1 goal a piece, Yippee a draw.
This was our best performance so far, All 13 players put in their best performance. This game has shown how far our new team has come from the first game of the season. Being a coach and parent it was so great to see a massive smile on all the players faces.
Next week we play Taree.
