Premiers can’t stop win­ning

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL: An­other day and an­other win for the Whit­sun­day Foot­ball Club’s pre­mier men.

The team con­tin­ued on their merry way on Satur­day in Mackay, down­ing Li­ons 3-0 to stay un­de­feated in the Mackay Pre­mier League.

De­spite the com­fort­able win, WFC foot­ball manager An­thony No­bilia said the play­ers weren’t sat­is­fied with their per­for­mance.

“In their opin­ion they didn’t play well at all,” No­bilia said.

“I thought they did what they had to do.

“They went up two or three goals early and we closed the game off, which is what we’ve been fo­cussing on.

“It wasn’t pretty. We played ugly and still won so that’s a pos­i­tive. Whether it’s ugly it doesn’t mat­ter.

“It’s just a habit now and we can win on pure at­ti­tude.

“That’s the mode we’re get­ting into at the mo­ment and we’re get­ting ac­cus­tomed to win­ning.”

Ryan Lee, Ben Smith and Richard Draper each found their way onto the score­sheet. Although WFC is un­de­feated the club sits in sec­ond on the lad­der be­hind Wan­der­ers based solely on goal dif­fer­ence. Over­all it was a per­fect round for WFC, with all three teams de­feat­ing their Li­ons’ op­po­nents on the day. The re­serves main­tained their lead on the lad­der with a 1-0 grind over Li­ons while the MCL team was sim­i­larly im­pres­sive. MCL pre­vailed 2-1 over the lad­der-lead­ing Li­ons to record the team’s sec­ond win of the sea­son.

WFC’s MCL are in sixth po­si­tion on the lad­der.
