his year the CBC junior soccer team had its best year ever in reaching the second phase of competition for the first time . The first training session was mayhem however some players showed a lot of talent while others showed plenty of spirit and enthusiasm . We were drawn away in our first game to none other than the John Curtin girl's team . The boys showed a lot of guts in losing 4-1 however the girls were subsequently disqualified for fielding a number of senior players. Our second game saw us travel to Melville SHS and at half time behind 3O. Switching Lorenzo Sigon to a centre forward role in the second half was the catalyst for a memorable comeback and our boys almost stole the game in the last minute when Lorenzo crashed a volley against the woodwork. The game ended in a draw and really boosted the team's spirit for the next games. There was no stopping us now and with the home ground advantage we crushed Warnbro and Kolbe 5-1 and 5-2 respectively. Both wins were inspired by players such as our captain Joe Paratore, Lorenzo Sigon, Ricardo Figueria, Marlon Ramirez and James Glendenning. We were through to the knockout phase, however a tough fixture against Forrestfield SHS (last year's finalists) loomed. We lost some important players through injury and on the day were soundly beaten 51 by a very good Forrestfield team. 90

bright future in soccer judging by the ability of the junior team. Mr Eoin Thompson Coach
