Thump! That was the sound of the winning goal hitting the back of the net for Coolum Under 12 (2) Maroons in their Grand Final against Cooroora United at Maroochydore last weekend. It was swiftly drowned out by the roar of supporters leaping around the sideline and the shouts of joy and relief from the players as they ran to pat goal-scorer Harper, on the back.
High emotion was to be expected as Coolum saw off their rivals in a decisive 3-1 victory after a tense and hard fought game. Cooroora had come out strongly and scored in the first five minutes of the first half. Keen defensive play prevented further goals but Coolum were down 1-0 at half time.
Rehydration and presumably the pep talk of the season saw Coach Mike Cassidy send on a re-energised team that worked together for every one of the next three goals. Midfielders strategically covered the field until legs ached, defenders consistently ran down their opponents to thwart several attempts on goal and forwards pressured all angles of the goal mouth until they heard that thump.
Special mentions go to goalkeeper Brodie who had the match of the season, and Will and Jack who scored the other two critical goals. Ultimately though it was a triumph of teamwork, reinforced by the coach who said they would win as a team or lose as a team.
“I couldn’t actually say anything to the team afterwards as I was too emotional,” Jon Davies, CFC President admitted. “It was such a hard game and the boys were phenomenal”.
Family and friends were loudly enthusiastic throughout the game and confessed to being hoarse by the end but very proud.
Well done to the boys and Coaches Garth Sampson and Mike Cassidy. A well deserved trophy for the Coolum Football Club cabinet.
