Both Redbacks men’s divisions had their home games moved to Kambah due to scheduling issues.
Redbacks Division 3 won 5-0 against the Burns Club, a team which hasn’t lost a game for two years.
The first 15 minutes Burns were on top creating chances at the net left, right and centre, but failed to convert any of them into a goal.
Brett Darmody scored after a failed corner flew over the top, Daniel Taylor returned the cross in close to the keeper. Darmody pounced and kept the ball out of the keeper’s hands, turning the ball in from a tight angle, the start of the hat trick.
The goal changed the momentum of the game to Yass’s favour. 10 Minutes later Darmody turned a through ball from Ryan Wing and squared it out for Brendan Scanes to tap into an open net.
Five minutes before half-time the Burns Club keeper miss-kicked a clearance, leaving Scanes to out pace the Burns defence and rifle a ball into the net. The Redbacks headed into the halftime with a substantial advantage over the home team.
Player/Coach John Mannweiler gave a pep talk about not becoming complacent and the job only being half done.
The second half started off where the first ended with Yass putting a lot of pressure on the Burns defence.
Yass’s defence suffered a minor setback when experienced left back Andrew McLean, who had been playing well throughout the match, was helped off the field with an ankle injury. Grant Taylor introduced Tim Hazell who slotted in place and had an outstanding performance.
10 minutes in and Darmody scored a cheeky chip shot past the keeper after he beat the offside trap and ran onto a through ball from Mitchell Darmody.
Tim Hazell and Brad Neilson played a ball in the box from down the wing, Darmody turned defender twice and the deflected shot lobbed the keeper, making it 5-0 and rounding off his hat trick.
It was hard to pick a standout player, yet Brendan scanes received players player for Div 3.
Division 4 went down in a disastrous defeat by the Burns Club.
The first half was an even game, leavin Yass a draw at half time. It wasn’t until the second half that the boys crumble, whether this was due to fitness or were feeling defeated the energy was lost.
Despite Tim Hazell’s efforts, scratching the field with his clean passes and solid attack scoring once, Division 4 were unable to clinch more than the two goals. The second was claimed by Andrew Stephen (Dewy). Hazzel was rewarded with player player.
The Yass Lady Redbacks dominated the field on Sunday with a 7 nil victory over Brindabella. The girls were on the opposition as soon as they kicked off on their home field, the ball preferring the Redbacks quarter. The steady defence of the Bec duo: McLean and Gallagher proved a force to reckon with. Keeper, Indrid Davis was left twiddling thumbs in the nets, with the rest of her team on the attack.
Victoria Alley and Shannon Wright schooled the opposition with tight teamwork, yet Katie Lavina kept consistent pressure on the opposition all game and walked away with players player.
The pitch proved a challenge soaked in water which Jacinta Murphy decided was good enough for swimming in. Although the water was slowing the ball down it couldn’t slow the girls.
The goals went to Victoria Alley (3), Shannon Wright (2), Jacinta Murphy (1) and Ash Parker (1).
