Lights out but WFC still shines in vic­tory

FOOTBALL: Not even two black­outs could stop the Whit­sun­day Football Club’s premier men’s win­ning run this sea­son.

WFC is un­de­feated in the Mackay Premier League in 2015 and ex­tended its record to six wins from seven matches last Satur­day night at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark.

This week­end WFC’s premier men will travel to Townsville for their sec­ond North Queens­land Club Chal­lenge fix­ture of the sea­son. WFC will play Townsville Broth­ers on Satur­day night and No­bilia isn’t sure what to ex­pect.
