U13’s NCF 5 v Edgeworth 0
NCF came out strongly from the first touch and kept pressuring Edgeworth in their own half. A goal from Edgeworth ignited the team with shots on goal coming from all directions, resulting in a 4 -0 lead to NCF at half time. Edgeworth came out with more determination in the second half but NCF remained committed and composed which allowed the team to continue to dominate creating a 5th goal for NCF. The Midfield and the backs held their ground and the few shots Edgeworth had were swallowed up by Loki in goal. Given NCF played the entire game with only one substitute, this was a dominant and quality performance.

U16’s NCF 3 v Edgeworth 0
The U16s had a comfortable 3-0 win against Edgeworth. The 1st half started with NCF pressuring Edgeworth’s defence from the outset, from pressing confidently, transitioning quickly with confident passing allowed us to dominate possession in the opposition’s half. Players found space to attack from the wings regularly, resulting in many scoring opportunities being created. Noah Armstrong scored 1st and then followed up by Mabior Garang; a constant threat throughout the game up forward and Zane Skrtic scoring as well, meaning we were 3-0 at half time. The 2nd half continued in the same vain with Edgeworth being on the back foot, further emphasised by an Edgeworth red card. Switching play and turning defence into attack, we again constantly created scoring opportunities, Edgeworth’s defensive attitude was amplified after going down to 10 men, keeping us from scoring. Finishing the game 3-0, everybody contributed in a great team effort.
