The Cooma FC men’s team.COOMA FC traveled to Calwell to play for ‘The Snowy Shield’ against Brindabella. Cooma was represented in the Over 35s, Womens and Mens.
The Over 35s had a tough hit out and it was great to see Cooma fielding a lot of ex players who returned for the game.
It was very pleasing to see David D’Amico and brother Eddie D’Amico both pull on the Cooma shirt together for the first time since 1995.
Cooma were victorious 3-2 in a game that was played in great spirit.
Cooma FC ladies took only minutes to find their feet and were knocking the ball around extremely well in what were very hot conditions.
It didn’t take long for Cooma to put a strangle hold on the game and the goals kept flowing. Cooma won astonishing 7-0. Well done to Miruna Moruz scoring a brace and looking ready to go for the season. Coach Serdan Bircan will be very pleased with the season opener only weeks away.
Cooma FC mens took to the field with a brand new looking team, consisting of all Cooma locals and after a big pre season it was time to show off all the hard work.
Cooma looked the better team for most of the game but conceded just before half time and were unlucky not to score through the likes of Iain Elliott and Cam Mackintosh on several occasions. Final score Brindabella 1 – 0 Cooma.
Overall Cooma retained the Snowy Shield for the second time in a row.
“It was really good to see a lot of Cooma faces turn up to play but also support. Im very excited for the up coming season and expect big things from our teams that were on show here today,” vice president of the club David Walker.
