Last night, the Commbank Matildas delivered a spectacular victory against Jamaica, and the young fans in attendance at McDonald Jones Stadium were blown away by the action-packed game. The atmosphere was electric, and the excitement was palpable as the Matildas scored three goals to secure their win.
But let’s talk about the real winners of the night – the kids from SCCFC who had the best seats in the house! They were stationed behind the Jamaican goal in the first half, and boy, did they get a front-row view of Katrina Gorry’s opening goal screamer. The crowd went wild, and the kids were absolutely buzzing with excitement.
We couldn’t be prouder of these young fans and their incredible team spirit. Graham Brookes and Kylie Weeks, the club’s representatives, acted as chaperones and made sure that the kids had the time of their lives. Their enthusiasm was infectious, and it was impossible not to get swept up in their excitement.
We also need to give a shoutout to Northern NSW Football and Alex Lowe from Football Australia for making this unforgettable experience possible. It’s heartwarming to see organizations committed to providing opportunities for young fans to experience the thrill of live sporting events.
And of course, we can’t forget the parents of these amazing kids. Thank you for allowing your children to participate in the event and represent Southy on the night. We hope that the excitement of the match didn’t keep them up too late when they got home!
Overall, the game was an incredible showcase of women’s soccer and the talent and passion of the Commbank Matildas. But for these young fans, it was so much more than that. It was a chance to create memories that they’ll treasure for years to come, to be part of something truly special, and to feel the thrill of live sport in a way that’s impossible to replicate.
