The Head Coach of the losing side after the game went on to say the goals were through his players’ naivety.

“I believe the defeat was down to naivety on our part. For AshGold’s first goal, the marking was not good. We had assigned every single player to a marker based on their height.

For the second goal, my players simply stood because they though the referee would whistle for an infringement after someone went down. I am very disappointed with this kind of play at level of the game.”
