THE Proser­pine U12-13 Taipans soc­cer team had mixed re­sults at Mackay on Satur­day.

The first half against Whit­sun­day Angli­can School (WAS) saw both teams fight­ing for pos­ses­sion and WAS held Proser­pine back un­til the 12 minute mark when Hunter Mans­field scored his first goal of his nine-goal haul.

This started an on­slaught of goals from Hunter, Alex Shultz and Matthew Hansen which brought a half­time score of 6-0.

The sec­ond half was much of the same, WAS un­able to pen­e­trate the Taipans de­fence lead by Josh Molten and Do­minick Schulte with Josh re­turn­ing the ball with some as­ton­ish­ing breaks to Hunter and Ben Cor­nish who scored to make it 13-0.

The next game against Mackay Mag­pies was a dif­fer­ent story when they scored four unan­swered goals against the Taipans by half time.

The sec­ond half saw the same with Mag­pies dom­i­nat­ing the game.

Goalie Jared Forsyth showed a gutsy ef­fort stop­ping many goals in­clud­ing a penalty shot but the Mag­pies proved to be too strong, with pre­ci­sion play­ing gut­ting the Taipans with an 8-0 loss.

ON THE BALL: Proser­pine Taipans un­der-12/13 player Matthew Hansen bat­tles for the ball with a player from the Whit­sun­day Angli­can School in Mackay.
