21ST May 2016:
The red hot Coolum Eels travelled to Noosa to take on the undefeated Noosa Pumas at the weekend, and both teams put on one of the most entertaining matches in the under 7s this year.
The Eels started strongly with Rory Haberman giving the Pumas an early warning of just what this kid can do – blowing past 2 defenders after drawing the tacklers in, then slotting home calmly to put the Eels in front. Solid work from midfield maestro Taj Fletcher, working in tandem with the box of tricks that is Exavier Govett, broke the Pumas and sent Slater Sherwell off to the races. Slater once again showed his fierce bravery, putting his body on the line to score as he was clattered from behind into the goalpost. Exavier then drew applause from the many travelling Eels supporters, after turning two Puma players inside out, spinning on the spot and releasing Taj to further extend the lead for the Eels.
The Pumas settled and scored 2 well-worked goals to peg the Eels back before half time, but the half ended with the Eels flyer Rory grabbing his second of the game to make things a little more comfortable.
Cooper Flynn was next to add his name to the score sheet. Fearless tackling from Will Creen and Cooper Daly, popped the ball free to Cooper and he held off challenges from two Pumas to score, and celebrated with a huge knee slide!
Zak Dadswell was strong in defence for the Eels, along with Exavier clearing off the line, but this game was all about Rory Haberman. Prior to the game Rory had been proudly wearing his number 11 ‘Robinho’ Brazil shirt, and his next goal certainly lived up to it. After winning the ball near his own goal, he beat 2 Pumas down the right, got to the bye line and weaved past 3 tackles before finishing with his weaker left foot.
The Eels ran out 9-2 winners on the day, with Rory in irresistible form, drawing praise from team mates and opponents alike and walked away with the deserved man of the match award from the Eels 2016 sponsors SurfAir Beach Hotel Marcoola.
