A win!

The Hills Hawks under 7s Purple A had their first win of the season. Congratulations boys!!! The Hawks showed great skill in attack and solid defence to win the game 4-3. Stephen had a strong game with some excellent defence and a long range goal from the half way line. Brae attacked strongly and scored three fantastic goals. Jack and Henry were very busy in attack and created a number of great opportunities. Jono also showed a lot of determination in attack and defence. The boys were excited to get their first win on the board and hopefully the next win is just around the corner.

Under 8 North/Gold

After a week off due to a forfeit last week, the team played great. Holding positions and doing the tricks Olivia has been teaching at training each week. Great efforts at goalie by Tom and Oliver N. Player of the match was Johnny who scored our goal. Well done team!

U9 to U19


Win(3-2) against Pennant Hills FC

Had our game on in the first half

Our games have mainly started at 8.30 this season, so a 10.30 start was luxurious. We also had 2 subs (Dylan and Jordan) from 10/4 due to absences within our team. Given our boys usually get off to a slow start we were all watching to see if a later start would mean more energy. They definitely started well, with great passing and positional play. Unfortunately for the other team they had an early hand ball meaning we had a shot at goal which we converted. We scored another 2 goals before half time. Second half our boys slowed and the Pennant Hills boys picked up pace. A ball straight into Lachlans face took him down and as some of the other boys ran to see if he was OK the other team scored. They scored a second goal which was an amazing shot, but we kept the pressure up and managed to hold them off for a win.


Win(3-1) against All Saints Hunters Hill SC

Premiership hopes at Arcadia Park

A two goal margin win would see us take out the premiership. Our menace team ASHH took an early lead with the wind behind their backs. We managed to claw back one goal to go into the halftime break locked at 1:1. Our usual suspects Oli and Owen slotted home two more cracking goals for a 3:1 win securing the premiership to the 14/3's for 2018. A usual dashing performance from Dakota at the back earning him the Player of the week trophy.


Win(2-0) against North Ryde SC

Another win on a windy day!

The wind was the main thing that upset our play today. The two goals an own goal and a tap between Zac and Morgo, resulting in a 2-0 win. Man of the Match was Ethan Hickson because of his very good goalkeeping


Win(5-0) against Ryde Saints United FC

Some Great Goals!

The team played a very good game today. The other team were down a player so we took an extra player off as well to keep it even. Some great passing by Hills Hawks that eventuated into 5 goals and a super win.
Well done to Cooper who was player of the match.


Loss(0-1) to Putney Rangers FC

Game 14 - Season 2018 for Team 9/6

Was a great game today. It was a tight 1st half, with both teams having chances but not scoring. Putney scored the only goal of the game in the 2nd half and they came away with the win 1-0. Really proud of the boy's effort today!!!


Win(7-2) against Beecroft FC

Good win, great play!

Our boys had some wonderful playing today and without any subs. There was lots of passing and great defense work. Jack P took on 5 boys at once managing to defend a goal. One of the beautiful plays saw the boys passing to at least 3 players before scoring a goal. It was wonderful to watch. Our coach was overheard to say “well coached boys, well coached”. Jack F also had an amazing goal from left side of field hooking it in and over the head of the goalie.


Win(6-0) against West Ryde Rovers FC

Finding Their Confidence Now

The boys are really starting to play in their positions and passing instead of holding onto the ball. Lots of confident goal kicking with 6 goals going in! We lost to this team last time but won today.
Coach was so impressed he gave everyone a Player of The Match Award.


Win(2-1) against Beecroft FC

Game 15 - Season 2018 for Team 9/6

It was a beautiful day to play and watch soccer today! Our team played amazingly both in attack and defence. Charlie scored a goal in the first half and Felix scored a goal in the second half, with a late goal scored by Beecroft. The final result was a 2-1 win to the Hawks.


Loss(1-2) to WPH Cherrybrook FC

A loss but all played really well.

It was a very cold start to the morning, but the boys started off well. In the first half they had numerous shots at goal but unfortunately none made it past the goalie. The opposing team were strong with good tackling, passing and positioning. The first goal they scored was well earned having seen some of our defense and goalie in the ground. Overall it was a very even match with each team scoring another goal each. Our attack did a lot of running, tackling and passing whilst our defense did a great job of keeping the ball away from goal with some amazing intercepts.


Loss(0-2) to Ryde Panthers FC

Game 16 - Season 2018 for Team 9/6

Our team played amazingly well today and put in such a huge effort all game! The opposition threw a lot at our team and the goalkeepers in each half - Brendan and Connor saved some rocket goal attempts. It was a great game to watch.


Win(3-2) against North Epping Rangers SC

A Soccer Poem

Today I decided to write a poem.
About our soccer game playing at home.
We had 10 boys warm and ready to play.
Would our 8 opponents stand in our way?

First goal came quick and was pretty easy.
Would the rest of the game be so breezy?
Lachlan lost his right shoe but kept in play.
Second goal, the game was going our way!

Great corner shots from Finn but none a goal.
James great dribbling and didn’t take a toll.
Caleb played well in many positions.
Our boys put on a good exhibition!

Goal by the others gave us a shudder.
Skies turned gray, could we hear rain and thunder?
Zane played midfield and supported the team.
Halftime, please don’t let us run out of steam!

Max was so happy when he played midfield.
But told off his mum and she had to yield.
Jack defended well with few balls astray.
Goal for other team will it go our way?

Josh took a big run and shot at the goal.
Nail biting but couldn’t quite find that hole.
Matt’s body took two balls in succession.
Ball was fairly equal in possession.

Goalie Marcus worked hard and saved some goals.
But another got through we saw how it rolls.
We finished so well and we were one up.
Every boy who played deserved a cup!


Loss(2-3) to Northern HFC

2nd Semi didn't go to plan

We faced a major set back before kick off with a season ending injury to Owen. A solid start saw us lead 2:0 half way through the 1st half, 2 penalties later we were locked at 2:2 at half time. We didn't recover and went down narrowly in the last 30 seconds. Gutsy effort regardless.


Loss(0-12) to Ararat FC

Game 17 - Season 2018 for Team 9/6

Premier League


Loss(0-3) to Pennant Hills FC

Not today

Penno better than us today and the scoreline tells the story


Draw(1-1) with Pennant Hills FC

Deserved better

We outplayed Penno but only got the draw - same pattern as round 1.


Win(3-1) against Macquarie Uni SC

Struggle St

Against Mac Uni with 1 point and we struggled to put this game away today. Ran out winners but it could've been by 10


Win(7-2) against Macquarie Uni SC

Not close

Ran all over the bottom team today with an easy win. Well done.


Loss(0-1) to Normanhurst FC


A very close loss to the comp leaders in a game that could have gone either way. It went their way


Draw(0-0) with Normanhurst FC

Another draw

Needed a win and played well enough that we would have won most days. But not today and had to be content with a point.


Loss(0-1) to Eastwood St Andrews AFC

Another close loss

Another close loss in a game with very few chances for either side. Eastwood scored after 30 mins and were effective in closing down the game. We fought, had more of the play but couldn't break them down and in the end only produced one really good chance towards the end of the game.


Draw(1-1) with Eastwood St Andrews AFC

Deserved better (part II)

The better team but not on the scoreboard. Finished with a draw in a game where we had a goal disallowed and gave away a dubious penalty.
