It is that time of the season for soccer, finals. The Grenfell U12 team “Wasps” finished 4th on the ladder being the only Grenfell team to make it to the semi-finals. It was very cold on Saturday morning in Young but the enthusiasm from the Wasps was evident.
The team consists of Riley Aspin, Oliver Taylor, Annabella Taylor, Angus Troth, Jake Troth, Harry Best, Hayley Taylor, Emily Brenner, Emily Amey, Ebosetale Akhiwu, Yetu Akhiwu, Riley Gray, Reuben Ryan, Dylan Beasley, Max Brenner, Annie Armstrong, Hugh Allen and Coach Ross Brenner.
They had to play the team who finished top of the ladder, which as ‘McDonalds’ from Young. At full time the game was a tie at 1 goal each, therefore forcing the game into overtime.
With 10 minutes extra time each end the wasps came out fighting, scoring the first and only goal in the first 10 minutes. In the final 10 minutes they scored another 2 goals to seal the win and take the Wasps to the Grand Final.
The Final will be played in Young on Saturday August 26 at 9:00am against the Young team ‘Taylor Plumbing & Gas Fitting’. We wish the ‘Wasps’ all the best. Good Luck.
