WFC put four past Mag­pies

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


A STUN­NING at­tack­ing dis­play from Whit­sun­day FC helped them record a mem­o­rable 4-1 win over the vis­it­ing Mag­pies at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park on Sun­day.

The three-goal win over the lad­der-lead­ing Mag­pies was built on the back of two goals from Mark Kil­lian and one each to Jar­rod Lee and To­mas Mor­ing.

Up 2-0 at half time the home side ramped up the pres­sure in the sec­ond half and Lee’s su­perb shot from out­side the box stretched their lead to 3-0.

Mag­pies hit back with a goal against the run of play but a late goal from Kil­lian killed off the con­test and earned WFC an im­por­tant win which ce­mented fourth spot on the lad­der.


A spir­ited sec­ond half per­for­mance from WFC wasn’t quite enough as they gave Mag­pies a real scare in their 3-2 loss on Sun­day.

Down 2-0 against the third-placed Mag­pies at half time the home side hit back with two goals in the sec­ond pe­riod but fell just short in a de­ter­mined dis­play.

Michael Lee Jr. was a stand­out for the home side and earned player of the match hon­ours for his tire­less 90 minute ef­fort.

This Satur­day the di­vi­sion 1 women will play against Sa­rina at mid­day and the pre­mier men will play Lions at 6pm, with both games be­ing played at the Lions home ground in Mackay.

On Sun­day the di­vi­sion 1 men play City Broth­ers at 1.30pm at the Rangers home ground in Mackay.

THROUGH BALL: Whit­sun­day FC vet­eran Richard Draper gets a pass away un­der pres­sure from the Mag­pies de­fence at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park on Satur­day.
