Topsy turvy premier men continue inconsistent form
INDIFFERENT form continues to plague Whitsunday Football Club’s (WFC) premier men on the eve of finals.
Last year’s grand finalists slipped to a 4-1 loss to Magpies at the Whitsunday Sportspark on Saturday.
Samuel Watt provided the team’s only highlight, kicking a second half goal but the weekend’s game was largely one-way traffic for the Magpies (second).
“[It was] pretty disappointing really. We didn’t play to our game plan at all which was disappointing. But at least we can turn it around for finals,” Luke Hillery said following the game.
The premier men remain in third place ahead of this week’s catch-up game against Magpies in Mackay.
Hillery said the team would endeavour to stick to the game plan more thoroughly ahead of the semi-finals on September 6.
In other results, the reserves sealed their finals berth with a 2-1 win over Magpies.
First half goals to Owen Hodgen and Alex Webb sealed the result, leaving the reserves in fourth place on the ladder.
Like the premier men, the reserves will begin their finals campaign in a fortnight.
This weekend the premier women will return to the park for a game against Lions.
Kick-off is at Wanderers’ fields on Sunday from 1pm.
Whitsunday Football Club’s Luke Hillery swiftly passes a Magpies player at Saturday’s home match.
