The Under 12’s had a spectacular game, blue team 1, white team nil.  Very close!  Everyone had their ‘eye on the ball’.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The under 8’s always have a fabulous time, getting in there, going for goals and not afraid to take a dive for the ball!  Great job!

Mother’s Day @ the Soccer

Mother’s Day this year was a glorious day, sun shining and a lovely drive to Scotts Creek.

Scotts Creek may be a bit of a drive for a game of soccer, but when you are rewarded at the end with a trip down the gorgeous Great Ocean Road, or lunch @ Port Campbell or ice cream & coffee at the Timboon Distillery it is well worth the day out!  It helps too when the Under 15s and the seniors won their games.  It was a great day had by all!
