Palerang United took on Monaro Panthers at home to finish the season. Injury and illness has certainly taken its toll over the final 6 weeks but the boys have had a solid season and enjoyed their football. A tight contest in the first half certainly saw Palerang United in with a chance of a result in the game but Monaros striker was deadly at times in the second half scoring twice and setting up another for a 3-0 win to Monaro.
Palerang United Div 4 took on UC Pumas and were in some excellent form over the last couple of weeks. A tough arm wrestle ensued and some niggle crept into the play but It wasn’t long before Palerang United hit the lead and upset UC even more. 1-0 at half time and Palerang United were confident they would be in for another win if they played with the same commitment as they did in the first half. The second half saw some entertaining football from Palerang United which frustrated UC into some errors. Cheyanne Whitmore scored off a corner to increase the lead to 2-0 and Palerang United were on top of the game and creating some excellent chances on goal. Unfortunately Nina Garcia was smashed in a tackle as she made a run towards the goal to shoot and it has been confirmed that she broke her collarbone in this incident. Matilda Corby missed the penalty but Palerang United held on for the win.
Palerang Under 12s has another nail biting game against the Bellwest Pheonix at Latham Playing fields, although Bellwest defence was organized and showed great resilience Palerang once again showed what it takes to break through with fantastic runs and ball skills from all players resulting in a 6-0 win against Bellwest. It was great to see our guys get back to normal team structure, passing and calling for the ball and finally being comfortable and confident again. Our wings played and excellent game today complementing the mid forwards to take advantage of the goal net. Thanks to our mids and backs for marking up and limiting available opposition players to keep pressure on the opposition with the ball which resulted in our regain to eventually torpedo it up to the front lines to create spectacular opportunities for goals to be scored.
