THE Inverloch Stars Senior Men’s team had
a very different look about it when they took
the field for their first game of the season last
Sunday at Thompson Reserve.
Playing a new formation and with a host of
new faces, the Stars started the game with
confidence and passed the ball around excel-
lently. Korumburra, as always, closed down
the space well but some crisp and accurate
passing ensured that the Stars dominated the
first 20 minutes.
Stuart Hutchinson opened the scoring for
the Stars with a sweet left-footed volley that
just squeezed past the Korumburra keeper. A
host of opportunities for the Stars could not
be converted however; and Korumburra got
back into the game towards the end of the half.
The Stars started strongly again in the sec-
ond half and scored two goals in quick succes-
sion. A well taken finish by San Oo and a well
taken goal at the near post from debutante
Jordan Thomas gave the Stars a comfortable
buffer and they continued to play some daz-
Michael McLean was always a threat down
the left hand side for the Stars and almost
scored on his debut but couldn’t convert a dif-
Sean McCrossan, Riley Coleman and Marco
Orr all had excellent first appearances for the
Stars and young Aaron Frasier popped up to
score at the back post from another fine Stars
move. Korumburra battled on to the end and
should be happy with their performance; the
Stars will be happy with the win - and, more
importantly, the way they played together as
Conditions were overcast and the humidity
was high which proved to be challenging for
the first match of the season.
Quite a few new faces in Inverloch’s team
with seven new players.
Korumburra started with the kick off and
Inverloch were strong in the opening minutes
but weren’t able to get past a strong Korum-
The first corner of the match was taken by
Inverloch newcomer Emily Smith and despite
a strong kick, Inverloch weren’t able to score.
Within minutes another corner was taken by
Inverloch but alas still no score.
Korumburra moved quickly into their for-
ward half with several attempts on goal and
several gutsy saves by Inverloch’s Keeper Gab -
About halfway through the first half, Korum-
burra made an attempt on goal and scored.
Inverloch’s Fiona Richardson and Lauren
Grylls both made attempts on goal but with no
success and play continued with both teams
making runs for goals but both keepers were
strong and by half time scores remained the
There was more of the same in the second
half with Korumburra increasing its lead via
an own goal. Korumburra won 2-0 .
In the first match of the season, Inverloch set
the tone of the match early on, with two quick
goals from their speedsters Luca Gleeson and
Toby Challinor. Luca added another two goals
soon after for a first half hat-trick, and Ben
Clements scored a goal off a well-taken corner
by Oscar Gibson- Goldsmith. Korumburra got
one back soon after from a counter attack just
before the end of the first half. In the second
half, Inverloch were in control with Sebastian
Toomey adding two of his own after coming
out of keeper, and Liam Chiappini got one
from a fast break that hit bosh posts before
rolling in. Luca scored his fourth soon after,
and Finn Gleeson scored the last goal with a
chip outside the 18-yard box late in the match.
Final Score: Inverloch 10 Korumburra 1.
Inverloch’s Nick Mattheson was in control of
the first half, scoring an early hat-trick. Debu-
tant Wyatt scored two rippers afterwards, and
Jasper Kempster and Archie Paxton got one
each from outside the 18-yard box. Nick got
another two, one of which was a long range
strike from about 40 metres out. Substitute
Finn Gleeson came on for 10 minutes and
scored a hat-trick of his own. Korumburra
managed an equaliser deep in the match, but
it was much too late, with Inverloch running
out winners 12–1 .
First game match day excitement built early
and Inverloch under 10s were in formation
and ready to play well before the kick off
whistle blew. With a mixture of new players
and more experienced players, we didn’t re -
ally know what to expect from our U10 team.
Early on Korumburra looked very threaten-
ing, and appeared that they might prove a real
handful, however, with some wonderful goal
saves, it was in fact Inverloch who scored the
first two goals of the game. At half time Coach
Luke was happy with the dribbling and pass-
ing to team mates, which has been a focus of
the pre- season training. In the second half
there were plenty of positional changes to give
all of the kids an opportunity to learn differ-
ent positions, and whilst Korumburra prob -
ably had more possession and field position
throughout the half, our kids continued to
work hard, and also managed to score again
late in the game.
