U11 Boys & Girls Football
We played our second round of the Go-Games series Tuesday evening last in Athea against Monagea. We had 22 players available on the evening and we were able to field two teams and play two 11-aside games against Monagea allowing all players full game time which is fantastic. Both teams played excellent football with some great scores, heroic defending and no shortage of skills on display from both sides.
