It was Roar’s first game of the second round and proved to be a winning one for the side.

Team manager Oriana Iannucci said it was pleasing to see the competition they have brought to this season after struggling last year.

The team had strong points in defence and, after missing a few players in the past two games, it was great to see the side almost at full strength again.

A few changes defensively worked in the girls favour as the side kept St Pat’s attack away from goals.

The attackers pulled their weight on the other end and, after a slow start, showed their worth in the second half after conceding early.

The boys played great football, moving the ball around and looking dangerous early but unable to capitalise.

The goal came in the 18th minute, with hard work, great ball movement and a great strike from Cooper Sorrenti, who also made his starting debut in the seniors.

Unfortunately the side was unable to put the ball in the net in the second half, but the 1-0 win was enough to hold on to top spot.

The weekend’s match was a vastly different game compared to the start of the season when St Pat’s gave the under-16s a 12-2 thrashing.

Cobram dominated the first half of the game, leading 2-1.

The boys scored again to led 3-1, but St Pat’s scored a flurry of goals later in the second half to win by two.

The boys achieved all the targets set before the game and came very close to going one better and winning the game.

It was a massive turnaround against a team which dominated Roar last time.

Credit to St Pat’s, a side which came out firing and were first to score.

The goal kicked Cobram into action with Jake Kalz scoring a first-half hat-trick and Luke Goodin and Logan Stone scoring a goal each, plus an St Pat’s own goal.

It did not take long in the second half for Jackson Koopman to score his first goal, before St Pat’s scored two more.

Stone and Kalz scored another goal each, while Jordan Kelly made some important saves in goal for Roar.

It was a great team by all Roar players.

Under-12s

Roar was looking forward to another game at home after a week off, taking to the pitch against St Pat’s.

With early rain, Roar started confidently but failed to capitalise early.

Sam Hurlston was able to give the side a 1-0 half-time lead.

After the break, Roar continued its dominance with Hurlston kicking three more goals and Mostafa Alkundi scoring his first goal for the season.
