A last minute change of venue saw Hahndorf Black playing Nairne at Strathalbyn. Hahndorf started the game strongly with a very early attempt at goal from Hayden Lien. The Hahndorf offence managed to gain control of the ball for much of the first half with near misses at goal from Blane Balcom, Henri Bjordal and Jacob Neumann. Nairne's goalkeeper worked hard, making some excellent saves.
The first goal of the match was kicked by Jet Zahra, with some great passing from Ryder Hill. Luca Cannavo, Angus Mifsud and Joash Ng worked well together in defence, with Mifsud executing some skilful tackling. Balcom continued to cover a lot of ground, and was often first to the ball. Cooper Liddle was also strong in the midfield. When the ball managed to reach him, Pepe Zahra, in goalkeeper, made some fantastic saves.
The second half saw J. Neumann in the goals. Nairne started strongly in offence and J. Neumann was kept busy, managing to keep the ball away from the nets. Bjordal was very active in attack and was close to the ball for much of the time. Toby Perkins made great passes in the midfield and Balcom continued as strongly as he started. After some great passing from P Zahra, an own goal was the third goal of the day, which was soon followed by another goal from Hill. Final score Hahndorf 4 - Nairne 0
Hahndorf wish to thank Nairne for a great game. Special thanks to Lien and Hill from U12 White, who filled in to make up the team this week.
