On the 25th of May 2015, a selected squad of Year 9 and 10 girls from all of the houses represented Dandenong High at the District Soccer competition which was held at Lyndale Secondary College. We competed against Sirius Secondary College, Lyndale Secondary College, Noble Park Secondary College, Keysborough College (Banksia campus) and Keysborough College (Acacia campus).
The team led by Coach Ms Ravi of Banksia, and Co-Captains Maylinda Emini (D9) and Nikolina Bucalo (C10), stuck by each other as they faced multiple challenges.
We eventually came out on top and were victorious as we played five outstanding games of football. The team convincingly won all 5 games with scores of 7 -0, 8-0, 9-0, 9-0, and 8-0.
Nikolina Bucalo (C10) and Maylinda Emini (D9) both managed to score multiple hat tricks as Hosna Deng (B9), Sikujua Nkondogoro (B9), Deanna Lumanovski (B9), Lejla Ramic (E10), Achilej Deng Shok (F10), Maibel Gumoi (D9), and Sofia Augustino (G9) all contributed to the scoreboard. We now advance to the Regional finals.
The highlight of the day was when Sikujua Nkondogoro (B9) scored an amazing goal when she bombed the ball from the halfway line, which somehow ended up in the back of the oppositions net. Closely followed by Maylinda’s whipping free kick that was taken near the halfway line against Lyndale Secondary College.
Overall, we had heaps of fun and we celebrated by going to Maccas afterwards!!
