U15-2 semi-final match report

There was nothing normal about season 2020. Training and games took place under a myriad of restrictions and (spoiler alert) for the Cannons 15/2s the season was bookended with losses to the Penshurst Panthers. Without the silverware in the trophy cabinet, the last game of the season was always going to finish with a tinge […]

U12 Youth Girls v Cronulla Sharks

Final Home & Away for the U12 Youth Girls The ladder was tight going into the game against the Cronulla Sharks. A win early in the season gave the girls some confidence but it seemed likely four teams would end up level 4th after the round was completed. It was going to end up a […]

U15 Div 2 v Wests

Round 9: A Bird in the Hand Although the Cannons had comprehensively beaten the Magpies earlier in the season, the context of this, the final round of the home and away season, promised this game would be a test for the 15/2s. Wests had everything to play for needing a win to make finals and […]

U12 Youth Girls v Ramsgate

Round 8 – The Girls Did Us Proud A match against the top of the table Ramsgate RSL provided the girls with an opportunity to show how far they’ve come since their Round 3 match up, and the team delivered. In a match that gave the defence a chance to show what they were made […]

U15/2 Cannons v Glebe-Newtown

Round 8: Something different For the past three years, the first Sunday in September has meant that Cannons families skipped through the mandatory Fathers’ Day ritual of cold toast and unwrapping novelty socks in bed to focus on a Grand Final. 2020 has been so unpredictable, disruptive and just plain different, that this first Sunday […]

Marlie and Cristina also demonstrated great running with the ball and some clever kicks in the mix. Zara provided a quick kick and set up a great goal […]

Round Seven: U15 Div 2 vs Willoughby Mosman Swans

A little alliteration… Friday night football involves my second favourite “f” word so I was as reved as a red neck at Republican rally when the 15/2s lined up against Willoughby Mosman at St Lukes for fantastic Friday night footy! There was a flicker of fear as regular ruckman Riggers revealed he was a late […]

U12 YG v Maroubra Saints

Round 6, Hefron Park: An amazing victory on an incredibly windy day What a match – here are the highlights: Goals across the park from five players. Edie kicking an incredible four goals, two each from Amy & Esperanza and one to Zara (first goal in AFL) and one to Audrey. With the final score […]

U15/2 v St Ives

Round 6, Acron Oval Acron is a beautiful oval nestled in a bush setting adjoining Garigal National Park. On Sunday the tall gum trees that surround the oval swayed rhythmically in the wind as the players went through their pre game drills. Mother nature providing a backdrop of majestic trees performing a Tik Tok dance!  […]

Cannons U15 Div 2 v Penshurst

Round 4 – The Long Road It has been said many times that this season is like no other! Even though the Cannons are yet to play all the teams in comp, Sunday 16 August meant a long road trip to Penshurst for a Round 1 rematch. When these two teams met in round 1, the […]
