Playing their 2nd match in 5 days, U15s Newcastle Olympic had no problem collecting another 3 points that brings them to equal first spot on the points table.
In a tough game played under windy and cold conditions at Cooks Square Park the boys in blue had to work hard against a tough opponent who was not prepared to lay down their arms easily. Despite this they were able to take some of the many chances created and lead 3-0 at half time.
The second half proved as tough as the first half with both teams battling for every ball. Olympic took a 4-0 lead but the Maitland players didn’t drop their heads and continued to compete for every ball. They were rewarded in the end by a long-range consolation goal which brought the final score to 4-1.
Not a pretty game but another 3 points which brings the U15s on equal first spot on the points table.
