IT was another weekend of tough competition for Highlands Football Club (HFC) teams.
The under-12 team had a 3-3 draw with Bulli A. Goals were scored by Austin Cribbin-Blencowe (two) and Adam Cox (one).
Under-13s played top of table Lake Heights.The score was locked at 0-0 up until the last 10 minutes when Lake Heights scored two late goals and got the three points.
In the under-14 match, HFC played the Newbury Bulls in the second round of the State Cup today at Marayong Oval.In the first half Highlands had some good chances with three opportunities to score but the score at half time remained 0-0.
The Highlands broke the deadlock in the second half with a Ben Walker free kick outside the 18 yard box forcing the keeper to save.
The keeper got a nasty bounce and the ball kicked between his hands and into the back of the net. Highlands continued to press and Nick Wilson chipped the keeper from an impossible angle and watched the ball sail into the side netting on the far side of the goal.
At 2-0 the Highlands boys started to relax and dominated the game although Newbury still posed a threat on the break. The third Highlands goal came from some tidy passing through the midfield which found Tom Richmond in space at the top of the box.
His finish was clinical and HFC won the game 3-0.The under-15s played Port Kembla and put 11 unanswered goals past them. HFC under-16 beat Figtree 1-0 at Figtree.
It wasn’t the Highlands most polished display, but it did enough to come away with the points.
