Break through win for WFC

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


AF­TER a tough start to the sea­son Whit­sun­day FC’s di­vi­sion 1 team fi­nally had some­thing to smile about af­ter they recorded their first win of 2013 over the Mag­pies on Satur­day.

The gutsy 3-1 win was just what the team needed af­ter a lean start to the year and the play­ing group are hop­ing it will be the first of many for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

A su­perb hat trick to WFC player Owen Hod­gen was a high­light in the much­needed win as Mag­pies man­aged only one goal through mid­fielder Chris O'Reilly.

The pre­mier men bat­tled hard in their game against Wan­der­ers but had to be con­tent with a 2-2 draw.

Up 2-0 at half time thanks to goals from Luke Hillery and Richard Draper WFC faded in the sec­ond half and al­lowed the home side to level the game and steal a share of the points.

All three teams are play­ing at Mag­pies field in Mackay this Satur­day start­ing with the di­vi­sion 1 men against Sa­rina at 1.30pm, the women against the Lions at 3.30pm be­fore the pre­mier men take on the Cru­saders at 5.30pm.
