SFL Round 5 Review
Our draft managed to secured the 3 points in a game full of youth players from both sides. Academy player Michael Lino (16) and Jaidyn Watson (17) continue to establish themselves into a more physical Draft league compared to the usual youth. New signing Roger Lee also continues to improve and fit into the team, while long time player Wazeem Omar was essential in managing the tempo and intensity of the game.
Our SFL side ended up playing out a 4-4 draw. After being 4-3 up with 15 seconds on the clock, a top corner cracker from Stirling FC Jamie Dunn tied the game as we settled for a draw. The team remained composed generating good attacking opportunities and narrowing spaces for Stirling. Youth academy players Liam Petley (17), Tyler Garner (17), Tom Penman (17), and Jaydon Baker (17) continue to gain court time and experience. Great sign of junior development as Cambio Cumbre remains the only SFL club to consistently field half of their SFL team with youth players.
On a negative note, player/coach Nestor Fonseca was reportedly injured in the first 2 minutes of the game and is expected to be out for a while.
