EYES ON BALL: Thomas Doherty in goal for Warwick at Tenterfield.

THE Warwick District Football Association took eight teams to the Tenterfield carnival on Sunday.

In what was the first representative outing for the season, untried teams and untested coaches played as many as five matches in a round-robin competition.

Overall, Warwick had a successful day and everyone seemed to enjoy the trip.

Carnival co-ordinator Ben Radford said his thanks went to Tenterfield.

"They hosted a great event and we hope to see Tenterfield and other associations at our carnival on August 12 at Queens Park."

Under 6 Warwick 1

The Warwick 1 Under 6 team had its first ever rep game at Tenterfield. The team played five games during the day, winning two, drawing two and losing one. At the end of the carnival it drew second place with Tenterfield but was outright second on points against, so came home runner up to Warwick 2 team.

Great attacking by Harry Williams, Shontai Saunders, Chad Doepel and Cody Laidlaw and a great effort in defending by Matthew Spence and Adam Hemmings.

All children had an enjoyable day playing to their best ability and showing great sportsmanship.

Under 6 Warwick 2

In the U6 division, Warwick was well represented with two teams. Warwick U6 team 2 had a great day bringing home the trophy, with Warwick 1 runner up over teams from Tenterfield and Glen Innes. With five games played the under 6s soldiered on.

Warwick 2 only had two reserves and was reduced to one reserve in the final game.

With four wins and a draw against Warwick 1, the entire team played well and had fun.

Jay and Seth Morris combined well to find the back of the net on many occasions, with most players scoring goals. They all would have slept well and look forward to the trophy coming north of the state border.

Under 8 Warwick 1

Warwick 1 team comprised of U7 and U8 players Madison Duff, Thomas Doherty, Logan Laidlaw, Christie Lyons, Jayden Stewart, William Butler and Dean Hamilton and they had a terrific day in Tenterfield. All players performed well and as the day progressed combined better and better as a team. Of the five games it had only the one win up against some strong competition, but the kids kept up their enthusiasm and never gave up, which was great to see. Thomas, Logan and Jayden played strongly up front with Christie, Madison and William combining well at the back, and Dean, during his time as goalie, made some great saves.

Under 8 Warwick 2

Although only finishing fourth for the day, the Warwick 2 team displayed great determination in all five games played. While they only won two out of five games, the margin in all games was never more than two points.

Callum Ebneter saved five goals in an excellent display of goalkeeping along with Chris Watt and Samantha McKechnie. Lauren McMahon, Jordon Woodrow and Mitchell Muller tried hard all day in the middle, supported by Matthew Watt, Matthew Kable and Savannah Butler. A fun day was had by all with good sportsmanship showed.

Under 8 Warwick 3

The first run for a mixed U7-U8 team proved a challenge for the U7s playing up onto the bigger field with different rules and the inclusion of a goalie. Great guidance by the experienced Tom Ramsey and Sarah Hockings, helped by Brodix Williams, Boyd McDonald and Jessica Ezzy, soon had the U7 trio of Mathew McKenzie, Maxwell Wilkinson and Scott Radford playing to their full potential.

Warwick 3 had a few wins and all the kids enjoyed the day out.

Under 10 Warwick 1

The team comprised Jai Anderson, Ethan Bender, Zachariah McKechnie, Riley James, Bailey McDonald, Nikiaya Pohlman, Patrick Swift, Ben Lyons, Simeon Butler, Vincent Pohlman and Alix Weatherstone.

These players gave 110% for all of their matches.

They started with a bye in round one then played four games back to back. Game one got off to a late start due to some refereeing confusion, but that did not deter the players. It just meant there was little rest between matches, as they were playing catch-up for the rest of the day. Game one was a 3-3 draw with Tenterfield 1. Game two was a 2-1 victory over Warwick 2. Game three was a 0-0 draw with Tenterfield 2.

Game 4 was a 2-1 victory over Glen Innes.

All matches saw some excellent work from all the players in all the positions they played as they subbed on and off.

The team was unlucky not to score more times than you could count, with some shots missing the goals by mere millimetres.

The defence was something to be proud of, which is why they achieved such good results.

The goals scored against the side were well earnt by the opposition, as they struggled to get past the defence.

All of the goals scored came from some magnificent team work. There was great passing between each other, as players charged down the field, with each run backed up well. The goal of the day would have to go to Nikiaya Pohlman, who lobbed the ball high from near halfway.

This had both sides anxious to see where it was going to land. Inevitably, it dropped behind the keeper and into the net. Nikiaya was probably more amazed then anybody.

All of the team members should be proud of their individual efforts, great teamwork and fantastic sportsmanship. With two wins and two draws, the side came runner-up, only beaten by its sister team, Warwick 2, by one point. Well done team.

Under 10 Warwick 2

Great passing combinations gave the team many scoring opportunities. Jayden O'Brien, Pat Gordon and Bella Ebneter were multiple goal scorers. Cameron Watt, Hayden Doherty and Tom Spence were mainly in defence and the team only allowed three goals score against throughout the carnival.

Dawson Doepel did a great job in goal. The midfielders of Logan Hamilton, Hayden Nolan, Jacob Walters and Tom Fender kept the ball going forward into attack all day.

The Warwick Two team won the carnival on the back of disciplined passing and great defence. Both Warwick teams displayed great sportsmanship in all games.

Under 13 Warwick 1

The Under 13 team played well together considering the short time as a rep team. It recorded wins in all three games, with the passing game and transition from defence to attack being the standouts. All games were played in great spirit, with all players making a contribution to the wins. The side was overall winner for the day.

Congratulations to all the players and thanks to them in what was my first coaching outing in this age group.
