A THUMP­ING 7-2 win in Satur­day’s grand fi­nal saw Whit­sun­day FC’s women team com­plete a re­mark­able un­de­feated sea­son.

Wan­der­ers were no match for the mi­nor pre­miers in the sea­son de­cider as they scored goal af­ter goal to cap off a per­fect sea­son for the team.

Coach Flo­rian Feirer praised his team’s per­for­mance on Sa- tur­day and right through­out the year.

“It was a great ef­fort from all the girls and we dom­i­nated right from the be­gin­ning of the game. The girls were very mo­ti­vated and no­body wanted to lose the grand fi­nal af­ter go­ing through the en­tire sea­son un­beaten,” he said.

“It was a com­plete team ef­fort and re­ally was a fan­tas­tic end to a per­fect sea­son.”

Up 4-1 at half­time, WFC added three more goals af­ter the break to seal the club’s first ever pre­mier­ship in any grade in the Mackay and dis­trict com­pe­ti­tion.

Tyrah Dunn and Re­becca Page scored dou­bles on the day and Nar­darh Warren, Abi Draper and Danielle De­gan all scored one each in the five-goal win.

“We had 17 play­ers turn up ready to play and ev­ery­one re­ally per­formed well. It was also great to see one of our rook­ies, Danielle De­gan, score in a grand fi­nal in her first sea­son,” Feirer said.

The team will face a tough task when they move up to the premier women’s com­pe­ti­tion next year but the club is con­fi­dent they can hold their own and are hop­ing to have enough play­ers to field two teams.
