GSL Emerging Talent in form

THE Gippsland Soccer League Emerging Talent Program under 13 squad made it two from two in the A grade South division at Trafalgar on Sunday, with a 4-0 victory over Beaumaris.

GSL ETP moved the ball swiftly early resulting in Daniel Gatpan passing back to Connor Dastey, who smashed home the opening goal from outside 25 yards in the first minute.

Jarrod Ross, who provided a great dribble through traffic, crossed to Daniel who applied the finishing touch to the second goal.

The GSL midfield continued to dominate the game, when Kai Beamer fought hard against three defenders just outside the 18 yard box and won the ball, passing out to Jarrod who finished for the GSL’s third goal inside 10 minutes.

After leading 3-0 at half-time the GSL capped off a solid performance on the 41-minute mark when Adam Semple turned on a nice dribble, passing three defenders before being brought down in the box.

Connor converted the penalty for his second and the GSL’s fourth.

A hat-trick to Jack Walton helped the GSL ETP under 14 side fend off Casey Comets 3-2 at Trafalgar on Sunday.

Scores were locked 1-1 at half-time after the GSL dominated possession.

Second half keeper Shem Murphy made some great saves but one snuck by him.

A penalty on 60 minutes saw Jack complete his hat-trick and ensure the GSL claimed the points.

AFTER a week of football education at the Central Coast Mariners, the GSL ETP under 16 boys started slow against a well-organised Beaumaris team.

Within 20 minutes they found themselves 4-0 down. A goal in the 21st minute from Nelson Tombra was one of few first half highlights.

The team went into half-time 5-1 down.

A goal from Keagan Grealy in the 45th minute was soon followed by a completed hat-trick from Nelson in the 51st and 63rd minute. With the game at 5-4 the GSL was unable to convert its late chances, and a penalty near the death to Beaumaris saw the visitor escape with a 6-4 win.
