Eastern Lion’s under11’s returned to Gardeners Reserve to face a strong Mooroolbark team and suffered their heaviest defeat of the season, the Lion’s made a very positive start to the game playing the ball around nicely in the visitors half, creating space and not letting Mooroolbark settle when they had possession. The Lion’s with Dean playing well down the right wing and Dylan and Franck strong in the midfield, were putting the visitors goal under pressure

without creating too many chances, just past the ten minute mark Hamish and Loukas combined to create the first chance with Loukas taking an early shot that

went straight to the keeper and was followed by shots by Sam and Hamish that failed to test the keeper too much. After a slow start Mooroolbark began to get a foothold in the game and the Lion’s were finding it harder to keep possession and were being pushed back into their own half, just before halftime the visitors broke out of the midfield to take the lead with their first clear chance of the game, the first half whistle went with the Lion’s undeservedly behind.

The second half kicked off with the visitors confidence up after the late first half goal and began to take control of the game, with the away team starting to play the ball around nicely the Lion’s were struggling to stay in the game and had to rely on Thomas to thwart several attacks. The Lion’s attack was becoming more isolated with Josh only rarely seeing the ball, the game was being played mainly around the home teams goal and Tom the home keeper needed to be at his best to keep the Lion’s in the game, making several strong saves as the away team won several corners in succession. With ten minutes left the pressure finally told when the visitors forced in the second, after putting up a strong fight the boys started to fade and with Mooroolbark’s confidence up the away team scored two more goals to give them a convincing victory.

The young Lion’s visit Croydon next week needing to play like they did in the first fifteen minutes and to play with more determination to win the battle both individually and collectively as a team.

Today the U16s headed South East to the notoriously hard to find Dandenong City ground. We all turned up switched on and ready for action. Dandy City were a few spots above us on the ladder so we knew we were in with a chance and at the 20 minute mark after a great counter attack the ball found Leon and a beautiful finish had us 1-0 up. Opportunities were limited for both teams and the ball didn't see the back of the net for the rest of the day and when the final whistle went it was another win to us after a great performance. Everyone stepped up and played a great game but special mention to Stephen for filling in as goalie and Josh C who played a blinder! Keep up the good work boys.

A perfect Saturday morning for soccer, saw the Lion’s under 11’s make the short trip to Glen Waverley this weekend, the pattern of the game was set almost from the start with both teams fighting hard for the ball in midfield. The Lion’s were having better possession of the ball, showing they had learnt what was worked on in training, passing the ball around neatly without creating many chances, Alex and Thomas in defence were seeing a lot of the ball as they played it around

in their own half with Alex playing some nice one two’s with the midfielders as the boys tried to create something up front. With the half coming to a close there was finally some goalmouth action when Franck stole the ball off a Waverley defender and cracked a shot at goal which the keeper could only push over his head and pick up on the line at the second attempt, goal line technology couldn’t

say if the ball had crossed the line and the half ended goal less.



The game resumed after the break and settled into the tight midfield battle we saw in the first half, the Lion’s decided to go for speed upfront with Ayden and Loukas trying to find space to use their pace but with a packed home defence

sitting deep, chances were few and far between. The game became more physical with both teams putting in some strong challenges hoping to get the upper hand,

as the game came to a close the home team began to get on top and were only denied by some excellent saves from Tom in the Lion’s goal. Five minutes before the end the home team got their nose in front after some pressure on the visitors goal, this brought a renewed effort from the boys with the game being played around the home goal, in the last two minutes Lion’s won a corner and sent Tom

up from his goal in search of the equalizer and it almost paid of when Thomas sent the corner over which Tom met with a firm header only to see the home keeper push the ball away from the foot of the post. The Lion’s committed to leveling the game were caught short at the back and with the last kick off the game Waverley scored their second to seal the win.



The Lion’s failed to score for the first time this season but put in an excellent effort, fighting hard all over the pitch and playing some good passing football

as worked on in training, with the same effort and skill a positive result will come next weekend.
