SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 5 & 6 - WENTWORTH STRIKERS - 6 NOVEMBER 2018

Summer soccer this Monday was a flash back to “WINTER soccer”. However we did not let the cold wind or showers stop us.  The team played really well, with the players starting to stay in their playing positions and passing to their team mates.  We only had one competition game this week, with our second game being a 'friendly' against a Y7/8 team from Whangaparaoa College.  Player of the Day was Brooke Oliver for her hard work and determination.

Years 5 & 6 trainings are currently postponed while the College has exams. Trainings will recommence when the College timetable returns to normal.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 3 & 4 - WENTWORTH MAGPIES - 6 NOVEMBER 2018

Another fantastic afternoon of soccer! Konstantin was awarded Player of the Day for his awesome ball skills and coverage of the field. We won 1 game 3-1 and lost 1 game 5-2. Goals were scored by Oscar, Ethan, Harper and Chelsea.  Luca is a great addition to the team and they are playing very well together.
Trainings will be run at lunchtimes on Tuesday's for Years 3 & 4.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 3 & 4 - WENTWORTH DRAGONS - 5 NOVEMBER 2018

While the opposition in both games managed to clip the Dragons' wings, winning 2-0 and 5-0 respectively, they were unable to extinguish the spirit shown by all members of the team who gave 100% until the final whistle.  Good lessons were learned that will only compound their strengths.  Player of the Day for her "can-do" attitude was Sienna Phillipps.
Trainings will be run at lunchtimes on Tuesday's for Years 3 & 4.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 1 & 2 - WENTWORTH WARRIORS - 5 NOVEMBER 2018

The Warriors were keen to put their coaching from Mr Donavan into practice against the Westminster Minions.  We had the excitement of a penalty after a goal mouth scuffle and Jacob just put the shot wide.  The girls got stuck in to chasing the ball and showed some great commitment in defence. Timofei and Theo showed good ball skills and pushed the Minions to make some good saves.  Ezrah once again showed his understanding of the rules and gave our Referee some good advice.  We lost 4-0 but showed big improvements on last week.
After a quick rain shower freshened the team up we were ready for our next game against Kingsway Blaze. The sides were evenly matched in skill and enthusiasm and gave us much excitement on the sidelines as the teams traded goals. With only 3 minutes to go the scores were level at 2 - 2. Fresh legs from the subs bench helped keep the Warriors battling to score the winning goal but we couldn’t get through a determined Blaze team. A quick break from a sideline kick saw the Blaze score a goal in the final seconds giving a final score of 2-3 to the Blaze. Player of the Day was awarded to Theo for his timely tackles and endless running to keep the Warriors heading towards the attacking goal.

Trainings will be run at lunchtimes on Monday's for Years 1 & 2.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEAR 1 - WENTWORTH STORM - 5 NOVEMBER 2018

The first game was tough for our Year 1 team against the more experienced Whangaparaoa A team, and by the end of the first half we were down 3-0.  We recovered our defence in the second half and prevented several goal opportunities for our opposition resulting in a final score of 4-0 in favour of the opposition.  Our second game, against the Whangaparaoa B team, saw Wentworth Storm beginning to really work together.  Cyrus Luo scored a beautiful goal which was unfortunately disallowed, but strong kicking from several players and team defensive tactics resulted in a final score of 2-0.  Although we lost both games this team is improving week by week. Player of the Day went to Ophelia Cooke for a high energy performance and fast thinking on the pitch.

WOW, what an amazing bunch of talented children, all with various sporting backgrounds!  We played our two games really well.  We are learning to play together and sorting out our positions.  With more practices and games together our team will really grow and develop.  It will be exciting for the parents to watch this from the side line.Our Player of the Day this week was Daniel Still for great saves as goalie.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 3 & 4 - WENTWORTH MAGPIES - 15 OCTOBER 2018

The team really enjoyed their game and worked well together.  We lost to the Skyhawks 3 - 1 with Isabella scoring the goal for us.  Player of the Day was Ethan Jordan for his awesome play and coverage of the field.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 3 & 4 - WENTWORTH DRAGONS - 15 OCTOBER 2018

The Dragons beat their wings and their season took off to a promising start!  After finding their rhythm they settled and tamed Stanmore Bay Tigers with a 2-2 draw before beating Orewa Daredevils 2-1.  Aston and Alex were the goal scorers, able to capitalise on solid teamwork, both in defense and attack, from the entire team. A solid performance from all, with the team sharing "Player of the Day" honours... Onward and upward Dragons!!

SUMMER SOCCER - YEARS 1 & 2 - WENTWORTH WARRIORS - 15 OCTOBER 2018

The mighty Warriors had a great time and showed great team spirit - some coaching will help our newbies grow in ability to match their enthusiasm! Two losses but lots of fun.
The Warriors showed great team spirit and energy in their 1st game against the Grey Sharks. Great defence work from Lewis and Charles and a goal from Jacob kept the score line to 1 goal each at half time. The team battled in the 2nd half while some good attacks from Elsa, Chloe and Ezrah kept the opposition busy in defence. The Sharks experience showed as they scored 2 more goals to win 1-3.
Our Warriors played Orewa Blazers next and battled hard in the heat to keep the ball in their attacking half. They were unlucky not to score and went down 0-1 at full time. The whole team worked hard and gave good support to each other. Thank you to Jack for helping on the sideline with subs, and to parents for cheering on the Warriors.

SUMMER SOCCER - YEAR 1 - WENTWORTH STORM - 15 OCTOBER 2018

The first game ever for most of our little Year 1 team and the task in hand was to just get them to get the ball going to the right end while staying within the pitch lines. (At one point they played across 2 pitches and a public pathway and were well on their way to the car park if they hadn't been herded back!) They lost both games 2-0 but this little team has definite potential and we saw some really determined players!  Player of the Day went to Daniel Campbell for really focussing on where the ball needed to be.

FLIPPA BALL - WENTWORTH WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 24 SEPTEMBER 2018

We were playing for First place and by the end of the 1st half we were down 3 points, with the scoreboard showing 3-0. During the half we had 10 failed shots at goal; you can’t coach that! The half time talk was simply putting the responsibility back on to the team, they had to stump up if they wanted to win. They turned it around and won 4-3. The whole team played an excellent game and were all named Players of the Day.  An excellent effort and well deserved win.

FLIPPA BALL - WENTWORTH MARLINS - YEARS 3 & 4 - 24 SEPTEMBER 2018

WENTWORTH MARLINS - YEARS 3 & 4
What a great game to finish the season. The Marlins were comprehensive in their defence and strike and won 6-2. The team has made excellent progress throughout the season and deserved their win. Player of the Day was the whole team. It was truly a whole team effort. Well done.

FLIPPA BALL - WARRIORS - YEARS 5 & 6 - 17 SEPTEMBER 2018

This was a semi-final game for the Warriors. They understood that a win here would mean they would be in the finals next week and their performance was outstanding.  The defenders swamped the opposition strikers and limited their ability to take clear shots at goal. The Warrior strikers worked well by creating space or drawing defenders and then passing the ball which meant great scoring opportunities. The Warriors won 10-1 and Players of the Day were Eli for creating goal scoring opportunities, and Ella for being a safe set of hands in goal and accurate throwing.
