2 losses for WFC

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THERE were only two games over the weekend.

WFC Pre­mier Women played Coun­try United and WFC MCL (Mackay Club League) men played Lions Gold while pre­mier and re­serve men had a bye.


In the ladies game Coun­try United de­feated WFC 8-0.

The ladies played a hard fought bat­tle with only 10 play­ers avail­able, with work and other com­mit­ments forc­ing de­pleted num­bers.

Out­stand­ing play­ers on the day were Michelle Reiner in a de­fend­ing po­si­tion, while Rosy Tay­lor worked her quick-footed magic to move the ball around and Tyrah Dunn who faced ev­ery chal­lenge head on.

The op­po­si­tion were a well-oiled unit with 14 play­ers in the game, giv­ing them fresh legs when needed. WFC cap­tain Abi Draper ad­mit­ted that the team still has some work to do, but had noth­ing but praise for her team's spirit.


The fi­nal score in the men's game was Lions Gold 1 - WFC 2. It was great team work from broth­ers Cy and Ker­rin Tay­lor, with each scor­ing a goal.

Joe Fletcher stepped up to the plate and cap­tained the team for this match, demon­strat­ing his lead­er­ship by be­ing very vo­cal and try­ing to cre­ate plays while en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers.

The Whit­sun­day team dom­i­nated large parts of the match with most of the play tak­ing place in the Lions half of the field, par­tic­u­larly in the first half. The new ad­di­tion to the team, John Barry from Bowen, did a great job get­ting into the right po­si­tions to de­fend at­tacks.

While Lions did threaten on the counter at­tack, WFC were too strong for them re­sult­ing in a win. Play­ing coach Mathew Page was very happy with the re­sult and is look­ing for­ward to next week's matches. Round 4 will take place at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park on Satur­day. WFC MCL men play Lions Green, with kick-off at noon. WFC re­serve men against Wan­der­ers, start­ing at 2pm, WFC pre­mier men face Wan­der­ers at 4pm and WFC pre­mier women play Wan­der­ers at 6pm.
