The second round of Deniliquin and District Soccer Club’s 2019 season was another success on Saturday.
The weather was great which promoted plenty of competition, excellent skills and there were some very close matches.
The club believes there will be happy parents and carers with the return of the coffee van next week.

United 5 def. Heart 0. Best: Jessica Dover, Masen Brain. Sportsman: George Fulton, Shaleah Cooper.

D Grade: Mariners and Roar had an even game with scoring starting in the first few seconds of play. Heart had a difficult game against Glory looking like they were going to be held scoreless but a late consolation goal to Tyler Hillier got them on the board. Good passing and teamwork by both teams. Victory and United had a back and forth game with George Marshall and Isaac Broekman making numerous runs past the defence.
United 4 def. Victory 2. Best: Isaac Broekman, George Marshall. Sportsman: Harvey Campbell, Nick Nolan.

Mariners 6 def. Roar 3. Best: Carter Sartore, Braxton Leetham. Sportsmanship: Isaac Tubb, Spencer Hayes.
Open: It has become increasingly difficult to separate the teams in Open with all teams getting competition points this week. The play seemed to be in favour of the team going against the wind this week, which is the opposite of what usually happens. Great to see a large turn out for all the games.

Heart 4 def. Mariners 0. Best Shannon: King, Thomas Duffey. Sportsman: Bayden Thompson, Jeremy Busby.
