Last year’s Premiers and Grand Finalists were the only Newcastle Olympic youth team to return from Edgeworth Eagles with three points!
The team which won every game in last year’s competition began with an early goal by River Peterson and within 10 minutes were 2-0 up with a thunderbolt from distance by Koby Jackson.
In what was a physical game under warm conditions U15s kept Edgeworth at bay for the duration of the half.
With intelligent rotation of players throughout the second half by coaching staff George Fellas and Eddie Abramovich, Olympic scored a third goal through a solo effort by wizard forward Seth Anderson.
This gives U15s two wins from two matches in the 2021 competition.
Earlier in the day U13s succumbed to a strong Edgeworth side by 5-1 while our U14s were surprisingly beaten 3-1! The day was finished by a 4-3 loss by our U16s despite them being 3-2 in the lead until late into the game!
