WFC roar past Lions

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


WHIT­SUN­DAY FC made it two wins from as many weeks on Satur­day with an im­por­tant 2-1 win over Lions in Mackay on Satur­day.

In a heated game the vis­i­tors were able to as­sert their dom­i­nance and con­tin­ued their re­cent rich vein of form which has trans­formed them into gen­uine ti­tle con­tenders.

A slow start to the sea­son is now well be­hind WFC and they will be hope­ful of tak­ing all three points when they face the last-placed Coun­try United in Air­lie Beach this Satur­day.


A 10-man Whit­sun­day FC pushed Broth­ers all the way in Mackay on Satur­day be­fore a late col­lapse saw them go down 6-3.

Player un­avail­abil­ity left WFC a man short but they bat­tled hard and at the 60 minute mark scores were level at 3-3.

Three late goals cru­elled the vis­it­ing team’s chances but all their play­ers took plenty of heart out of their ef­fort against the first-placed Broth­ers.

All teams are at home at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park this Satur­day start­ing with the di­vi­sion 1 men against Wan­der­ers at 2pm, the women against City Broth­ers at 4pm and the pre­mier men tak­ing on Coun­try United at 6pm.
