Gladstone finish with a five-goal win

EVEN though Shalom Mangweza's under-12 Gladstone soccer side lost its first game against Bundaberg, he remained positive.

The youngster identified a late lapse against the visiting Bundy boys as the reason why they lost 3-1.

Gladstone began brightly enough courtesy of a Tiann Engelbrecht goal and the hosts held a 1-0 lead at half-time before Bundy's Ethan Jones levelled scores minutes into the second half.

"I found it interesting and we were playing really well, but our communication in our defence was poor," Shalom said.

His teammate Zac Zennes said missed chances also proved costly against quality opposition.

"The positives were that our positioning was good and probably we lost a bit of focus when we got tired," Zac said.

However many lessons were learnt because the Gladstone lads finished in the best possible way and Shalom played his part.

He kicked two goals in Gladstone's 5-0 win against Fraser Coast.

Tiann also added his name twice on the scoresheet while Lachlan Wells was the other goal scorer.
