Matoba preserves unbeaten record

Football West News

The Gold Fields Under 14 State Team are one match from completing an unbeaten week at the National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour.

The Football West side rallied to draw 2-2 against Tasmania today, extending their undefeated run to six matches at the C.ex International Stadium.

Now the WA team will look to defeat Queensland on Friday to ensure a second place finish from the Member Federation sides, behind NSW.

FINAL DAY FIXTURES

“To be unbeaten after six games is fantastic and if we can extend that tomorrow and come home unbeaten, then that would be a terrific achievement for the boys. It should be a great game,” head coach Mark Scanlan said.

Kane McEwan gave WA a first half lead against Tasmania, who struck back with two goals in a three-minute spell after the break. But a goal from McEwan’s ECU Joondalup teammate Taiga Matoba earned a hard-fought draw.

“It was a game we should have won but all things considered it was a good result,” Scanlan said.

It wasn’t such a good day for the Gold Fields Under 13 side, who were well beaten by Vic Country.

Perth Glory were crowned both the 13 Years and 14 Years Two-star Club Academy National Champions, while both Football NSW Blue teams were successful in winning the Member Federation National 13 and 14 Years Championships.

The action continues on Friday as Member Federation sides will continue to go toe-to-toe with one another and Hyundai A-League Two-star Academies to showcase their team and individual talent.
