Island too strong for Stars

Tough competition: Eli Cousins played hard all day for Inverloch Stars in both the Reserves and men’s matches.


IN freezing conditions, Inverloch’s senior women’s team fought hard against a strong Phillip Island attack.

Inverloch’s defence worked hard to shut down the onslaught from the Island team and at half time the scores were two nil.

In the second half, Inverloch came out firing and it wasn’t long before it had put a score on the board.

Inverloch tried to keep the ball in its attacking half, but Phillip Island was too strong.

Phillip Island won four to one.


U15 girls

IT was a cold day with the constant threat of rain for the U15 girls’ game between Inverloch and Phillip Island on Sunday. The match was hard work for both teams, with the Stars showing some extra grit to keep the score low against the league frontrunners.

The Island managed two goals in the first half and despite repeated attempts at goal by the Challinor sisters Jess and Amy, Inverloch failed to score.

The second half saw yet more excellent saves by Inverloch goalie Tiffany Matheson, but the Island was too strong, winning the game five nil.



EVEN the arctic wind did not keep the U10s away, with another great turnout for the Inverloch Stars to match up against Philip Island.

It was great to see several players putting their hand up for the goal keeper position given the reputation of the goal kicking strength of Philip Island.

Congratulations to Asher and Spencer for some fantastic saves and for keeping focused despite a constant attack.

The Stars worked hard to keep the Island at bay, defending off many forward attacks and driving the ball into its forward from some great passes into space.

Augustus from the Stars was able to cut through the Philip Island defence to score twice and give his team reason to celebrate but the day well and truly rested with a well-structured and skilful Philip Island.

The Stars made everyone on the sidelines proud with plenty of positive talk and smiles after the game as they all looked forward to seeing each other again at training Wednesday night.
