Whitsunday FC share points with Crusaders
WHITSUNDAY FC PREMIER MEN
WHITSUNDAY FC and the Mackay Crusaders couldn’t be separated on the weekend as they played out a tense 1-1 draw in Mackay.
After a slow start to the season WFC were keen to grab all three points against the Crusaders but had to settle for a share of the spoils.
Premier mens coach Ian Radford said that it was a hard-fought draw and his team was unlucky not to grab all three points.
“It was a match of high intensity combined with a composed physical competition,” he said.
“It was hard to single out players for passion, enthusiasm or effort.
Radford was pleased with the result and called it a team performance that delivered a vital point against an extremely unpredictable side.
The division 1 men played their best game of the year to date to grab their first competition points with a 2-2 draw to Rangers.
After a winless start to the season WFC put in a great all-round team performance and showed that they have come along way as a team this season.
With a great mix of experienced heads and up-and-comers they will look to secure their maiden win of the season against Wanderers in Mackay this Saturday.
WFC’s womens team remain undefeated after an impressive 4-0 win over Wanderers, despite playing with only 10 players.
Danielle Deegan was a standout for the women, scoring her first ever goal and impressing all over the park.
Her efforts saw her named the Harvey Norman player of the week as the best performer out of all three Whitsunday FC teams.
The women remain undefeated after 11 rounds and continue to impress as the benchmark of the women’s competition.
All three teams are playing away in Mackay this Saturday with the division 1 and premier men taking on Wanderers and the women looking to continue their undefeated start to the season with a win against the Magpies.
