The sun shone bright upon our now familiar Centenary Field as we stepped up to play against Newington Public School! 

From the very first touch Homebush West was significantly dominant in possession! Antonina tore up the field with her speed and determination on the ball! Amani ran her absolute heart out, playing all over the field and delivering quality passes to her team mates - Alisha and Miray who all came so, so close! Homebush West were unstoppable but we needed to get one in the net! Just before half time, Koharu made a superb run through the middle passing it to Melanie (our super sub from juniors today) who played a nice one two back to Koharu to put her through the gap! The Newington keeper made an incredible save keeping the score at nil all at half time. 

After a quick and positive half time chat, the girls were back on! Victoria, Selina, Lillian and Claire held our back line with such confidence! Some of our kicks went so far! It was amazing how our back line switched us from defence to attack instantly! During the second half, Koharu was looking very dangerous near the goal when unfortunately for Newington, a defender made a hand ball in the box. Koharu made short work of this by slotting one past the keeper as cool as a cucumber!

Our team really shone bright today and should all be incredibly proud of themselves! The game continued with so many near goals we just couldn’t believe it!

This game was truly a positive display of our progress as individuals and as a team! Another win to add to the belt! Here we go Homebush West!

Last Friday the Senior Boys played against Enfield. In previous years Enfield have proven to be a tough opponent and this year they lived up to their reputation. We started well and almost scored off the kickoff. The game settled into some rhythm and Enfield began to attack down the wings and peppering crosses into the goal box. Eventually the raids began to reap dividends and the half ended 4-nil. The second half played out in a similar fashion with our team seeing few chances to score. Although we kept our spirits up and manufactured some great highlights like Zac making agreat save and Krish, Ian, Juan and August all making saves in one attack alone, we succumbed to a 9-nil score line. Once again we played with determination and sportsmanship in a proud effort.

On the 31th of May at Henley Park Homebush West squared up against Enfield. The team had a phenomenal game, their attacking and defending was on point. Krish had our first attempt on goal and sadly hit the goal post. The team kept the momentum and approached the rest of the game with their head held high. Unfortunately the results weren’t in our favour however a 1-0 loss is nothing to take for granted. The team have been improving every game and I feel like a win is on its way! Keep up the effort.

Our training was focussed on attacking and defending in their positions during a game. The students are becoming more of a team and learning to communicate effectively with each other during training and on the field.

On the last day of Autumn, the Junior Girls Soccer Team played against Newington PS in a close, thrilling match! Although we lost, walking away with a final score of 0-2 (Junior As) and 1-0 (Junior Bs), the girls played extremely well and continue to show great improvement and progress each week. The students bring so much passion and determination each week and never give up or lose hope! Thank you team for your consistent effort - keep it up! Our hard work pays off!

A few highlights from today’s game include:

Junior As

 Sudharshana’s speedy run up the field, taking hold of the ball and heading straight for the goal with only one opposite in sight  - amazing!

 Faith’s fierce nature, protecting our goal like a penguin protecting its egg - fantastic!

 Ally’s strong defence and confidence, not being afraid to ‘get in there’ and tackle the opposition - well done!

Junior Bs

 Akshika’s strong defence and confidence, tackling the opposition and not letting them get past with the ball - outstanding!

 Chloe’s fierce kicks down the field, with great force and accuracy - too good!

 Melissa’s energy and enthusiasm on the field, although a sub for first half, she came on the field strong and ready to win!

Overall, the team did so well today! Although we didn’t win, we know we are getting better each week and we will continue to give it our all and keep our eyes on the prize!
