Un­de­feated sea­son for WFC women

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Whit­sun­day Football Club’s womens team has had an un­de­feated sea­son and will now play in their first semi-fi­nal this Fri­day.

The team plays in the Mackay re­gional zone in di­vi­sion 1 and is made up of play­ers from as far north as Bowen and as far south as Blooms­bury, as well as Proser­pine, Cannonvale and Air­lie Beach.

This is the the first time in the his­tory of Whit­sun­day Football Club, that a team has re­mained un­de­feated through­out the sea­son.

Coach Flo­rien Feirer, took on the ladies at the be­gin­ning of the sea­son not know­ing what he was in for as some of the girls are sea­soned play­ers, while oth­ers are play­ing com­pet­i­tive football for the first time.

Feirer, or Flo to the team, has done a great job de­vel­op­ing the team to the heights they have reached.

This Fri­day night the women’s team will kick off in the semis against the Mag­pies at the Mag­pies Sport­ing Com­plex at 6pm.

The pre­lim­i­nary fi­nals will be played the fol­low­ing Fri­day and the grand fi­nal on Satur­day, 28 Septem­ber.

The pre­mier men have also had a good sea­son and will play this Satur­day in the semis against the Lions at the same venue.

Coach Bob Spees, who took over coach­ing mid-sea­son, has high hopes for the boys when they clash with the Lions in the first match that will hope­fully lead them to premier­ship glory.

TEAM EF­FORT: Whit­sun­day FC play­ers Nar­darh War­ren, Jenny Divers, Ad­die Poid, Robyn Dean, Rosie Tay­lor, Frances Stan­nard, Darcey Borellini, (cen­tre) Becka Page, (front) Abi Draper, Mor­gan Tween and Tyrah Dunn af­ter they de­feated the Mag­pies 6-0 on Sun­day.
