Broome’s young soccer stars made a big impact at the John Holland North West Championships, held in Newman recently.

Despite being newcomers to the competition, the under-9s division put up a spirited fight, facing nerves in their opening game against Newman and eventually falling 3-0.

Undeterred, they took on reigning champions Karratha and held them to a goalless draw until the second half, finishing with a 3-0 loss.

Their determination paid off when Broome faced Tom Price, securing a thrilling 2-1 victory with Elijah Latham scoring both goals.

Though they narrowly missed a finals spot, the team impressed with two wins and two losses, taking third place out of five teams.

Meanwhile, Broome’s U/13 Mixed representative team showed their mettle with a strong 6-0 win in their first game.

Massimo Scriva’s hat trick, along with goals from Harper Eddington and Asha Jeff, set the tone for their success.

In the subsequent matches, they continued their winning streak, beating Tom Price 3-1, with Massimo Scriva’s impressive hat trick earning him the Best and Fairest player award for the U/13 division.

In a gripping third game, the team fought back from a 0-1 deficit to win 2-1, securing their place in the final.

The championship final was a hard-fought battle, with the young side eventually falling 1-0 to a strong Karratha.

In the under-15s division, Broome again showed their prowess in front of goal with some impressive wins culminating in a grand final berth against Karratha.

Unfortunately, the kids from Karratha again proved too strong, defeating Broome 4-0 in the final to secure a gold medal sweep across all divisions.

It wasn’t all bad news for the Broome boys though, with Luca Scriva, brother of U13 Best and Fairest Massimo, also taking out the award for his age group.
