2 losses for WFC
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.
