Whit­sun­day FC share points with Cru­saders

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


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.
