Champion effort

By MITCHELL DALE

THE word intimidation has been ripped out of Corindi's dictionary in the lead-up to the Champion of Champions semi-finals in Sydney.

Breakers coach George Szemes says his girls will not be overawed by any opponent and will go into Sunday's match quietly building in confidence.

Corindi will meet North-West Sydney club Gladesville Ravens, who boast an imposing goal-scoring record and disposed of defending champions from the Manly-Warringah association in the quarter final.

But the Corindi girls are not concerned.

"They are not daunted at all, in fact they (Ravens) haven't even been spoken about," Szemes said.

"We are not worried about other teams, as long as we play our game and play well.

"We'll go down there with a full squad on Saturday morning and will be quietly confident of a win."

Ravens are rumoured to be a big side, but Szemes hinted that could work in Corindi's favour, especially late in the match.

"From what I have been told by people who have heard of them, they are meant to be a pretty physical side," he said.

"But 90 minutes is a long time and fitness definitely won't be a problem for us."

While Ravens have had few problems in finding the back of the net, Szemes said they have also leaked a couple of goals.

"If have no idea what to expect from them, but looking at their results, they can quite obviously score goals but they have conceded a couple too," he said.

"We have a few good strikers who can put a couple away and good defenders."

Regardless of what happens on Sunday, Szemes reckons Corindi's season has been a raging succes.
