Write-up by Angus
The boys arrived on a sunny Saturday afternoon,
Rolf brought his Beamer to make the girls swoon,
Turk was late with his usual parade of fans,
Yet, the focus never shifted from the winning task at hand
Out the gates quickly Shano was in,
A cooly slid finish saw the Elite on track for a win,
The Scarfies came fighting and a response was clear,
Their striker lashed a volley that Kengo could not get near,
One – One is the score but the Elite would not stop,
Trav put in a cross which ended up being a shot!
Beating the keeper the Elite’s heads were held high,
Halftime came around and Rori almost made Gav cry!
The Scarfies came out with a hiss and a roar,
mix up at the back saw them on track for a draw,
We picked up our spirits and created some good play,
Trav scored again to make it two for the day,
3-2 to the Elite with 10 minutes to go,
A shot from Ben went in off their players toe.
4-2 it finished a great game all round,
Cold beers were shared and no one wore a frown,
A valiant win by the boys in blue,
Tawa Bears we are coming for you!
3 Levi: Huge shift in the middle of the park.. created good space and picked some lovely passes.
2 Kengo: The Elite will miss you between the sticks. Another solid game with some great distribution.
1 Tim: Always reliable at the back, covered my arse on a few occasions. Cool, calm and collected.
