Round 6: A big day for local junior soccer

DSC_0521

The great carnival atmosphere at Vic Park on Sunday saw for the first time the Under 9s, 13s and 15s have their first combined home games of the season. on Over 50 children and young people played soccer and were well supported by a huge crowd of parents and friends.

Under 9s

The under 9s local game season kicked off at VIcPark with around 30 children playing for Daylesford red or blue. The future soccer stars are coached by Daylesford’s local soccer legend Danny Koleski and showed great determination and effort for 50 minutes of play. The final hard fought score was 3 all.

Under 13s

Daylesford  U13s lined up to play their first home game of the season against Ballarat White. The beautiful sunny weather brought the local team alive with a very smart throw in from Kelton Reid down the line resulting in a first minutes early goal by Jonas Paar.  The outstanding defence of Miles Wilkinson, Eric Kelly, Lachlan Taylor, Alex Rodgers (welcome to the team) and a tenacious Asher Waldon held off Ballarat attempts at goal to half time. Ryan Thiez was ever-strong as goalie making some brilliant and solid saves at goal, and strong kicks down to his beakaway strikers.

The local boys came out even stronger in the second half with sheer determination to increase their lead. Otto Saunders commanded the defensive mid, with support from Kelton and “the defensive wall” of Sean Armstrong who quickly sent a very clever through-ball to Jonas for his second goal. The third goal rained for Daylesford from a Ryan kick down to Franki, who then passed to Jonas to weave throughout the defence to score his third goal for the game. Soon Ballarat White, through some very clever passing and ball skills returned with a reply goal. Kelton continued with a brilliant all round game, moving to fierce defence when required and never stopping on attack.

Rennie Saunders was always on the ball in the team attacking play. The combination of Sean sending a perfect through ball to Jonas then onto “fearless Franki” for a perfectly placed chip over the goalkeeper resulted in Daylesford’s 4th goal. Final outstanding score Daylesford 4 and Ballarat White 1.  Asher was this weeks star improver. This was a first win of the season for the team, everyone on the ground did each other and the Club proud, what a great team effort with everyone the best player. Next week the team line up for what should be a close fought match against North United at Russell Square at 9.20am.

Under 15s

Daylesford Under 15′s were full of hope because it was the first time this year that the team had a full contingent of players including substitutes. Tyger once again showed great leadership and inspiration by saving a number of shots on goal. The first half of the match was an entertaining affair. Daylesford was the first to score through the skill and good timing. Unfortunately Ballarat quickly equalised and then scored again. The half time score was 1-2. The second half was tough going for the local team. Although there were some good passages of play, Daylesford too quickly gave the ball away to the opposition and Ballarat made them pay. The final score was 1-8.

Round 6: Seniors have a hicup

The seniors tumbled to 1-1 draw on Sunday against big guns Ballarat Soccer Club, after a second half goalfest and missfest. Daylesford were awesome in defence, led by the David Burgar Francis Banger and Andrew Bazza Barnham. Jef Brownscombe let the wax lyrical at left back, again proving he can’t go on holidays all season.

Ballarat deserved a point hitting the post twice, whereas Daylesford on managed to damaged the post once! Both teams played a thoughtfully pleasurable afternoon of champagne football, flowing passes of joy and some glaring misses!

Daylesford scored first through Dragi Koleski, again, and looked the goods in the splendid weather. But Ballarat never gave up, and showed the old boys sure can sing, and put away and excellent header 15 minutes before team.

The referee was sure having a fun day, pulling cards and having a giggle all day, much to everyone’s surprise and confusion. The game was for the taking in the dying minutes, when daylesford had three on the back post, and no keeper to beat, but the easiness got the better of the lads, and the ball went skywards, awkward.

Harry Robb battled like a cut snake, nearly getting on the end of a few good plays, and Seb Bjorn was lively second half proving his hefty transfer fee worth ten times over.

Overall, a pretty decent effort, but catches win matches, and the team needs more conversions to take the title. Next weeks game is at home 2pm against Forest Rangers, Daylesford VicPark.

Score: 1-1

Round 5 – Daylesford sits pretty on first spot

The Daylesford seniors enjoyed another strong 5-0 win over rivals Bacchus March in wintry blizzard conditions on Sunday at home. Daylesford were elated by the return of its favourite son Francis Comber, former captain and local entertainer. Missing were young guns Patrick Jones, Jimmy Thesnake and John Noaction.

The weather couldn’t dampen the goal fest, but the score could and should have been more flattering for Daylesford, with many chances going to the cleaners. But the bursting crowd got what it can to see, rain and goals, raining goals.

Shanka Hackenburger was top scorer of the day, in front of his tribe, with his second goal a stunning volley worthy of mention in europe. Abdel Bennani slotted home one, along with Dragi Koleski.

It was a team effort by the lads, who now sit two games clear on top, and being chased by Horsham and Creswick. Harry Robb had another cracker game, along with Jazzy Jeff and Sam Tucker. Ivan Carter got a kick also.

Next week will see the lads take on Ballarat, former champions, and solid house of cards.

Score: 5-0
Best: Shanka Hackenburger, Harry Robb, Sam Tucker, Sebastian Douglas Downing

SENIORS KICK OFF THE SEASON WITH A 3-1 WIN AGAINST HORSHAM

Daylesford kickstart 2015 season with a solid win. 
 

The Daylesford and Hepburn United Soccer Club (DHUSC) has kicked off the seniors campaign with a solid 3-1 win over Horsham in wintry conditions on Sunday. Horsham were the inform team of the first round last weekend, with a solid 4-1 win, but Daylesford proved their class from the kickoff and played their younger opponents off the pitch with some champagne football.

Daylesford have recruited well in the off-season, picking up Sebastian Lukoszek from Chelsea FC, Patrick Jones from walkabout and Ben Andrew from the ATO Allstars, whilst losing Mehdi to the Ballarat Red Devils and Zoran Drogriski in a move back to Hollywood FC.

The tempo was set by Daylesford early on, rolling down the river with some good possession and quality chances to score early on. New recruit Sebastian Lukoszek nearly started the party with a great shot after rounding the keeper, that deflected off te n defenders and onto the post, somehow not going in. Daylesford followed up with another post banger, rewriting the record books for post hitting early on.

It took John Villiers to launch a rocket to get the first goal, after his low hammer drive slid under the keeper. This was followed up from a great shot from outside the box from five times league best and fairest and newage farmer, Dragi Koleski. Koleski celebrated into the night, and Daylesford went 2-0 up. But Horsham soon clawed one back from a great shot on the turn from their captain, Tommy G, who mastered the rainy conditions to slip one into the back of the net.

With the half time score at 2-1, Daylesford were looking a little unsettled, but juiced up with some magic water, and came out to score a third goal in the second half, miss another dozen chances, and win 3-1. Harry Robb and Shanka Hackenburger were excellent in defense, and gave little away all day, except a smile a or two. Patrick Jones returned to the team with an excellent series of sprints and crosses, and proved his can use his legs well off his bike.

Daylesford now sit on top of the ladder after two round, with the previous week being a bye. Next game will be against VicPark Vultures, who sit bottom after two rounds, but Daylesford will be without mysterious midfielder Ivan Carter, who has a wedding to speak at.

Score: 3-1

Goals: John Villiers, Abdel Bennani, Drago Koleski.

Best: Koleski, Villiers, Robb, Hackenburger, Lukoszek
