Dominating display of possession for CCFC

IT WAS another solid performance for the Cap Coast Football Club at the weekend, with senior teams impressing their coaches in several local games.

On Friday night there were two home games at Apex Park in both the women's and men's Community Division.

The women's team played a good game against Bluebirds, dominating the first half, but the half-time score was locked at 0-0.

The girls came back to win 2-1.

Cap Coast also held strong and controlled the game in the men's Division 3.

Christian Braseriro scored the goal for Coast in the early part of second half.

It was only a penalty that was awarded to Nerimbera in the last 10 minutes, which levelled the score at 1-1..

Their Premier League squads are still in pre-season with two friendlies organised for the weekend.

CQ Premier League Division 2 coach Josh McLennan said in the final friendly before round one next weekend, both the Premier League team and the Reserves played Bluebirds at Bluebirds, which turned out to be a dominating display of possession football for both Coast teams.

"The Premier Reserves started at a fast pace but struggled to settle for the first 15," he said.

"After then the team dominated possession and moved the opposition around the field."

With multiple chances and shots hitting the crossbars the score ended 3-0.

"An impressive second half from Fergus Sansom and the return of Douglas Armstrong were highlights for the reserves team," Josh said.

"The Premier league team started strong with some quick attacking moves up front opening up the Bluebirds defence right from the start.

"After a couple of goals the boys settled and retained possession and played some beautiful football with a large amount of possession for the Coast.

"It was a fantastic display from the younger squad members. Hayden Perkes scored a hat-trick and another great game from Jordon Moran helped the team on to a 6-1 win. Round one versus Frenchville at Frenchville next weekend with both Coast teams near full strength ... it will be an exciting match."

With school holidays in its last week, the junior competition will resume its season on return from the holidays.
