1st win on the road for Youth Development

Arriving at Seaside Park, we had a slightly changed team due to injuries and players being away. Still, we changed and the lads warmed up in their new training shirts and waited for the game currently being played to finish. Up  then stepped an official neutral referee and off we went.  Playing into both a good wind and bright sunshine, the team were put under early pressure from Otahuhu. However, the new pairing of Thomas McKee and Kyle Watson stood up well and weathered the storm. Brett Zinzan looked strong at right back and Dylan Thompson was doing a great job at left back. Old warrior Grank Muckle tried his luck in the centre of midfield, alongside the 'Speedy' Coster, with Dylan Smyth Kirk on the right and Shane Holmes on the left completing midfield. Up front were the reliable pairing of  Roddy Peat and Lev the 'Scarlet Pimpernel'. Between the sticks was the familiar face of Stuart Ruddell.

As the game entered the 9th minute, an Otahuhu player hit the deck injured and we put the ball out for him to receive treatment. As the Ref stood above the player, there was a sudden commotion and alot of shouting coming from that direction. Suddenly the ref produces a red card and Otahuhu are reduced to 10 men with the injured player given his marching orders.

Restarting, Waiuku were playing some nice football but still lacked that penetration. However, within a few minutes, Roddy Peat finds himself in space after good work from his team mates and buries it into the net through the legs of the keeper ! 1-0 to Waiuku!! Back to the restart and calls to tighten up were given from the coach. Unfortunately, that was not listened to and after a defensive mixup, an Otahuhu forward found himself in open space on the edge of our area. Out comes Stuart to force an error, but the ball is chipped over his head and into an empty goal. We had held our lead for about a minute. Still, back to the grindstone and Waiuku kept having a go! Good play kept putting Otahuhu under pressure but the breakthrough was not there. As Waiuku pressed, the 'Pimpernel' charged into the box and was cut down from behind. 'Got to be a penalty' I thought, but to my bewilderment, the ref warns the 'Pimpernel'  to stop diving and we get nothing!Then bad luck hit us with Shane having to leave the field due to a quad problem, so the taem was changed with Roddy moving to the wing and Gareth Morgan taking the front man role. Waiuku were looking strong going forward but always vulnerable to the counter and so Dylan Thompson was given a breather whilst Scott Withers moved into left back. However, another robust challenge from Otahuhu (We were getting alot of that!) caught Scotty, injuring his back and he was forced from the field and so Dylan had a very short breather before getting back on. 

Half time and the team talk is one of optimism. We can take this. Just be stronger in the challenge and take them on. This we did and Otahuhu were starting to flag. Both Gareth and the Pimpernel had chances, with Gareth hitting the bar and the resulting melee only just being cleared. As we continued to attack, chances were coming and once again we were denied a clear penalty as our striker was brought down twice within a milisecond in the 6 yard box. However, yet again the referee was unimpressed and waved play on! Was this to end in a 1-1 draw? No!! Roddy Peat once again got himself into a good position and from the edge of the area hit a speculative shot towards the goal. The Otahuhu keeper must have had the sun in his eyes because he was slow to react and the ball flew into the top left corner! 2-1 Waiuku!!

Waiuku kept it tight this time around and shut out Otahuhu, completing the first win of the season to the Development Squad! To be honest, once again we gave a soft goal away but we did deserve alot more than we got today. Spirit and the will to fight got us through and the man of the match went to Roddy Peat for his goals and workrate. Mention has to go to Dylan Thompson for outstanding defending when he is not normally a defender, to Stuart for some good saves that kept us in the game and to the 'Pimernel' who was given some rough treatment by Otahuhu but still kept tormenting them! We played as a team and it showed. Things are now gelling and we are getting stonger. Our next game is at home against Uni-Mt Wellington at George St KO 2.45. Well done lads and lets start climbing the table!!

Simon had always been mercurialGucci Wallets 28. She took it that his absence was his way of reducing the strain of a difficult situation, and hoped that presently he would make a third in the partnership that was blossoming so happily between Eleanor and Patrick.“You’ll have to do something at the Bures Show,” Eleanor said one day as they came in tired from the stables. “Otherwise people will think it very odd.”“I could ride in a race, Gucci Wallets 29as Ruth suggested.”“But that is just fun. I mean, no one takes that seriously. You ought to show one of the horses. Your own riding things will be here in time, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t.”“No.”“I’m getting to know that monosyllable of yours.”“It’s no monopoly of mine.”“No. Just your speciality.”“What could I ride in the races?”“Well, after Timber, Chevron is the fastest we have.”“But Chevron is Simon’s.”“Oh, no. Chevron was bought by Bee with stable money. Have you ridden races at all?”Gucci Wallets 27“Oh, yes. Often. Local ones, of course. For small stakes.”“Well, I think Bee plans to show Chevron as a hack, but that’s no reason she shouldn’t be entered for the races at the end of the day.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 52 She’s very nervous and excitable, but she jumps clean and she’s very fast.”They put the proposition to Bee at dinner, and Bee agreed to it. “What do you ride at, Brat?”“Nine stone thirteen.”Bee looked at him reflectively as he ate his dinner. He was too fine-drawn. None of the Ashbys of the last two generations had run to weight, but there was a used-up look about the boy; Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 51 especially at the end of the day. Presently, when the business of the celebration was all over, they must do something about his leg. Perhaps that accounted for the strung look that marked his spareness. Both physically and psychologically it must be a drag on him. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 50She must ask Peter Spence about a good surgeon toconsult.

Last Sunday,D&G Wallets 16 I did housework with my mother at home. My duty was cleaning my bedroom and sorting the bookshelf. D&G Wallets 15After breakfast, I started my work. I first arranged books on the shelf. Previously, most books were my textbooks, but I wanted to do some changes. I picked up the textbooks on a cartoon and put the books I read at spare time on the shelf. And then I started to clean my bedroom.D&G Wallets 14 Because mother cleaned it almost everyday, Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 118so my task was not so heavy. After I finished my own duty, I helped mother with other works. Before lunch, we finished all the housework.It's reported that students in Korea have used e-books from 2011. There are some people suggesting that e-booksshould be popularized in our country.Some people strongly support of it, but some others are against of it. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 117In my point of view, I prefer the latter. First, as we all know that our society develops unbalanced. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 116Some poor areas can't afford the costs of e-books. Furthermore, reading the e-books for long a long time will do harm to the eyesight of students. Last, the traditional books of paper have many advantages over e-booksLast Friday afternoon, there was a basketball match between Class One and Class Four. It was the final match of basketball games. Almost all students went to the playground to enjoy this match.NHL Adjustable Hats The students of the two classes are the most excited. They tried their best to cheer for their team. This match lasted for half an hour. It was very exciting. Both teams did very well.NFL Adjustable Hats At last, Class Four won the games and the scores were47:39.

Statistics show that no more than 40% of people who take the college entrance exams pass. Because a college education is regarded as the key to a successful career, this puts enormous pressure on the applicants. It also causes social problems,D&G Wallets 5 as those who fail consider that they have disgraced their families.It seems to me that the exams are unfair, for three reasons: First,D&G Wallets 4 applicants with different abilities are faced with the same type of exam paper, Second, the results of a mere three days of examination affect the applicant’s whole future; and third, applicants who can afford private tutors usually score higher marks than those who are poorer, D&G Wallets 3but perhaps more intelligent.To improve the system of college entrance exams, I suggest the following steps: the exam papers should be graded to take into account the different levels of ability and the different backgrounds of the applicants; in addition to the actual exam,Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 43 a complete assessment of the applicant’s educational achievements should be made; and tutoring in examination techniques should be made available to all.  I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we have had about whether an entrance fee should be charged for parks. Sixty percent of my schoolmates are for the idea that an entrance fee should not be forced on the public. They believe parks are the place where the public enjoy themselves at their leisure. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 42 They think that a gate and walls are to be built if an entrance fee is to be charged. The city will not look so beautiful as it should have. Forty percent of my schoolmates are for the idea that an entrance fee is OK, but it shouldn’t be out of control.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 41 Entrance fee can be used to pay the gardeners and buy new types of flowers and trees. For myself, I’d like to say that if we all work hard to build our city into a flower garden, who cares about the entrance fee for parks? Finally, eating properly, having good rest and building normal daily routine are aslo important to health. Chicago Bulls Wool HatsI was so busy in the previous winter holiday for I am going to take the university entrance exam in July this year. Anyway, lucky number is personal thing, and it does encourage the person who believes in it sometimes. Don’t cross the road or turn left at a red traffic light. Give a sinal when you want to cross the road or stop. Jordan Wool HatsBefore corssing the road, stop and look at your right and left sides, making sure that there is no car passing by.

These days, Gucci Wallets 22it is of no surprise that a number of bookstores in big cities likeBeijing,Nanjingare squeezed out of bustling commercial streets and give way to more profitable shopping malls,Gucci Wallets 20 hotels and restaurants. This might be considered by some people as one of the natural outcomes of market-oriented economy, which puts more emphasis on money making than anything else. Gucci Wallets 21Books, however, as special commodities, can never be measured merely by their commercial values. Bookstores, as a distributor of books and a bridge between writers, publishers and readers, deserve preferential treatment at present.It is true that bookstores are not as lucrative as some shopping malls or restaurants. However, books are faithful friends of mankind and steps to human progress. Good books can refresh people with knowledge and wisdom, which other commodities can not compare with. Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 75To some extent, they help develop the characters of their readers and reshape their way of thinking. It would be a pity if one only views books from the point of their commercial values while ignoring their social values and functions. In fact, the shrinking number of bookstores and their “humiliating defeat” in the fierce commercial war is worrisome.While seeking economic success, we cannot afford to neglect our spiritual and cultural lives, which are equally important. Bookstores play a significant part in cultivating social ethics.Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 76 Through distributing quality books, bookstores help educate the public on righteous and healthy values and morals. The positive social effects of bookstores as well as their contribution to society can never be taken for granted and be judged by their economic returns and business earnings. Restoring the past glory of bookstores needs help and support from everyone.Visitors to Nanjing are always impressed by its well-preserved historical sites, unique cultural atmosphere,Christian Louboutin Women Shoes 74 lush greenery and wide roads. As a Nanjing resident, however, there is one thing I feel ashamed about. Quite a number of public phones in booths on the streets of Nanjing have been unfortunately damaged, and most of such damages were even done intentionally by some people who are “good at” vandalism. Some receivers, for example, Washington Nationals Hatswere cut off or broken carelessly. In some extreme cases, phone booths were simply burned to ashes, apparently on purpose.Setting up phone booths adds much modern color to this old city and represents the improvement of Nanjing’s telecommunication system. And most importantly, these public facilities make it possible for people to communicate with each other cheaply and conveniently,San Francisco Giants Hats which is a great project that benefits citizens. Therefore, they should be kept in good conditions and always ready for use. This is very important, for it reflects the civilization level of a city in the eyes of visitors.
