Young guns rack up big goals
SIX GOALS each from under-11 players Jordan Rose and Jack Kay highlighted another entertaining round of Gladstone and District junior soccer action last weekend.
Meteors Mates striker Rose was in magnificent form, with his six goals coming in the Mates' 7-0 win against United Tigers, while Kay's six came in the Clinton Cassowaries' 13-2 victory over the Yaralla Redbacks.
Kay's team-mate Scott Rouse got in on the act, scoring four in the same game, while Clinton Coyotes and Calliope Jag-uars scored under-11 wins.
The high-flying Central Cobras youth team suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday, losing 1-0 to rivals United Strikers.
Clinton Cougars were the major beneficiaries of the loss, moving to the top of the colts ladder after a 6-0 win over club-mates Clinton Cannons.
In other colts matches, BITS Bullets defeated Yaralla Vikings 8-0 and BITS Breakers took the points in a five-goal thriller against the United Saints.
United Redbacks moved five points clear on the under-12 ladder after their 4-1 win over the BITS Broncos.
A rare scoreless draw was played out between United Dynamites and Clinton Crocodiles, while the Yaralla Falcons earned a 2-0 win over Meteors Magpies in the other under-12 clash. United Gunners' perfect record in the under-13 competition remains intact after a 6-0 win over Meteors Magics.
Magics' goalkeeper Rebecca Lewis was in sensational form between the posts, but couldn't halt the Gunners' charge. In other under-13 games, Clinton Crusaders defeated Yaralla Raiders 9-0 and BITS Boomers scored a 2-1 win over Central Butchers.
A crushing 16-0 win by the United Barbarians was the highlight of the round of youth matches.
The Barbarians finished with six different scores in the big win over the Yaralla Bears, while the Clinton Cowboys made it nine wins from nine starts with a 7-1 win against United Eagles.
