From the Convenor of Football – Stephen Wilmot
With the second half of the CAS season commencing this weekend against Knox, I challenge all teams to see if they can improve on results they had in Round 1. This can be improving on how teams work together, the communication between players, following set pieces or getting a win. As we are versing Knox this weekend Year 7, 10 and Opens will be making the trip out to Curagul or Samuel King fields. Please ensure you check the fixtures for where teams are playing and what time the games commence. Players are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the kick-off for an adequate warm up, however please ensure you allow plenty of travel time as traffic is heavy on Saturdays getting to Knox.
From the Captain of 1st XI – Jack Hardwicke-Owen
Round 5 saw Waverley travel to Summer Hill to take on a confident Trinity side who had gained their first win last week. Upon arrival it was evident that the weather was to play a significant role in the game, with rain and strong winds belting the artificial surface. Play began with both teams probably underestimating the strength of the wind with the first half seeing end to end action. Waverley had the better of the first half opportunities, most notably Dom Abruzzese who was looking in fine form leading into the half-time break.
With scores locked at the half, Waverley opened the scoring early through that man Abruzzese, who neatly finished a well worked move. It was not much longer until Abruzzese again got his name on the scoresheet, tapping home a fumbled ball by the Trinity goalkeeper which was a result of a strong Mario Rebollo strike. Waverley seemed to be cruising, creating a number of chances to extend their lead. However, it was a counter attack by Trinity which gave the game life, leaving the score 2-1 with 20 minutes to play. Waverley continued to apply pressure and create more opportunities although the score wasn’t to change with Waverley coming away with a well earned 2-1 victory. Special mention must go to the Waverley defence and goalkeeper: Lachlan Forrest, Liam Flanagan, Carter Kiligrew, Luke Fuller and Marcus Cowan, who each handled the unfavourable conditions well and were reliable throughout the match.
At the halfway point of the season, Waverley sit in 2nd position, just 2 points behind leaders Barker. As the second round of matches fast approach, the team is looking forward to having a shot at redemption against Knox. Waverley sit in a very exciting position which promises for some entertaining football.
