Ballarat VS Forest


A spectacular night for the Alby Kinna cup game against Ballarat. Discipline, heart and patience allowed us to take control of the game and show the development that we've been continuing to build on the training pitch. All this allowed us to win 4-1 and retain the cup for another year.

Forest vs Ballarat


On Sunday our Womens team came up against Ballarat at Pleasant Street. Kicking off the girls started out strong and it definitely looked as though the could bring home the win. Unfortunately the first two goals came for the Ballarat team leaving Forest down 2-0 only 20 minutes into the game. Plenty of opportunities were had within the first half and the girls kept their heads up and fought the whole way through. A brilliant corner from Jacki was curved into the centre of goal for centre back Shae to amazingly and unfortunately miss the back of the net. It didn’t take long for them to come back into the game and claim a goal as Jacki outpaced the Ballarat defence not once but four times with through balls from the team and easily placing them into the back of the net. This gave the girls a 2-4 lead into the second half. The second half was considerably different with no goals to be scored but with both teams fighting hard for the win, playing some great football and definitely one of the best games the girls have played so far this season - especially coming out to win from a 2-0 start to the game! This week the Forest women take on Creswick on Friday night under lights at home.


Under 15's


The Under 15’s came into the weekend missing 7 players through illness including captain and goalkeeper Tiarlah Anstis. This saw 7 players from the Under 13’s step up to fill the void. Riley Green stepped into the role of captain for the game, playing the entirety of the first half in goals. Coming out to lead the defence in the second half. Simon Neville-Ireland continued his impressive goal scoring run with a goal either side of half time to bring his tally to 9 goals in 6 games. Under 13’s goalkeeper Nixon played the second half of the match in goals. Making several excellent saves, including an outstanding full stretch dive to keep a penalty out of the bottom left corner. The Under 15’s would like to thank Joey, Jakayah, Nixon, Neto, Macval, Mure and Nick for filling in and giving 100% to the team. Each player exceeded expectations and should be proud of the way they played.


Under 13's


It was a big game for the under 13's this week coming up against the formidable Creswick, which last time they faced them saw Forest go down by 16 goals. The team they were in during round 2 is not the same team they are in round 6. We got off to a cracking start with attacks on goal coming from both sides. We saw the Forest defence hold strong, keeping Creswick out for a large chunk of the first half. Unfortunately Creswick were able to get through and score two goals before half time. We saw Forest come out strong in the second half holding most of the possession and keeping Creswick a defence under the pump. There were several shots on goal by the Forest players, they were unlucky not to see one hit the back of the next. Creswick finished off the half with one more goal seeing the final score 0-3 loss to Forest. Although the scoreline wasn't what the Forest players were hoping for, the incredible improvement from all players is exciting and they all look forward to the next round.
