Under-9s coach Shannon Prideaux said it one of his team’s best games of the season. 

“It was  great win and the boys played very well,” he said. 

Leading on from the win, Prideaux said the under-9s goal was to continue to improve. 

“We are going to continue strengthening our skills and we will try to lead with the ball an run it on,” he said. 

After several tough rounds and a lot of commitment the under-11s scored their first win of 2017. 

Under-11s coach Matt Griffiths said the Hawks were ecstatic to clock their first win. “It was a fantastic first win of the season,” he said. 

Griffiths said he wanted to keep momentum going in the hope of another win. 

“If we keep playing like this, we are going to be much-improved team by the end of the season,” he said.
