Foot­ballers shine in torrid weather

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


WHIT­SUN­DAY’S ju­nior foot­ballers have shone amid gloomy con­di­tions at Proser­pine at the week­end.

Al­though the club didn’t get the re­sults it would’ve liked, the ap­pli­ca­tion from all teams was some­thing to be­hold on Satur­day at a wet Proser­pine Sports Com­plex on Satur­day morn­ing.

The un­der-9s went down to Coun­try United 8-5 and Proser­pine 4-2.

Henry Dock­ing and Jack Lud­low were out­stand­ing in both games, mak­ing a mock­ery of the muddy grounds.

The un­der-10s faired slightly bet­ter, se­cur­ing two draws against Coun­try United (2-2) and Proser­pine (5-5), with plenty of un­der-9s help­ing fill num­bers.

Dy­lan Beale and Daniel Hally led the way.

The club also con­tested the Wul­guru Car­ni­val on Sun­day near Townsville, with the un­der-10s en­joy­ing a field day.

The team won all five games, how­ever the un­der-9s were pit­ted against a much tougher group, and with key play­ers ab­sent, it made for a dif­fi­cult day.

With Louie Archer, Oli Pur­cell and Flynn Pur­cell on loan to the un­der-10s, the team man­aged to record a win and a draw.

This week­end will be the fi­nal round of matches for the re­gion’s ju­niors.
