Maroochydore Vs Noosa Soccer Match

Yesterday Maroochydore and Noosa Lexis English took to the soccer field for our monthly grudge match!

The rain held off in Noosa long enough for an hour long game.

Both teams played extremely well with the half time score being 1-1. Unfortunately Maroochydore were unable to score in the second half with every shot at goal only missing by millimetres. Noosa however put another 2 goals on the score board with the final score at full time being 3-1 to Noosa. 

A much better score from last months game with 11-0 to Noosa. 

Cant wait for the next game – we will get you next time Noosa!
