|2021 U17||27th March 6:00pm||League Round 1||HSC Main Pitch 1|
The Hahndorf U17’s team were roaring to go under the lights at Pine Avenue for the beginning of the season.
The whistle blew and Hahndorf were on the attack with near misses from Kyle Fenlon. Woodside scrambled towards goals but the direction of play was changed by the centre backs Josh Rayner and Tyler Weyland with this defensive work leading to a goal for Hahndorf by Jye Martin. Xavier Kell, Kane Gibbs, Dan McArther and Matthew Daly worked hard in the midfield to keep the ball in the Hahndorf attacking half before the halftime whistle blew with a staggering score of 3-3.
The second half began with the Hahndorf defenders Oliver Thorpe, Toby Boekel and David Nielson working hard to keep the Woodside wingers at bay. A quick play through the middle left Charlotte Hodgson out wide, beating multiple players before crossing in for a near miss from Fenlon. Multiple attacking attempts from Woodside were thrown towards the young keeper Tom Boekel, who stepped up and provided his hardest efforts for the team. Outstanding efforts were made from everyone within the Hahndorf team, pressing for goals with attempts made by Edward Hardingham. It was a tough fight between the two teams, leaving Woodside victorious.
