City Broth­ers serve up another shock

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

For the sec­ond time this sea­son, Whit­sun­day Football Club’s re­serves en­dured a sur­prise loss to City Broth­ers.

WFC is ranked first on the Mackay Premier League Re­serves’ lad­der but has now lost two games to the fifth- placed City Broth­ers, in­clud­ing last Satur­day’s shock 2-1 de­feat at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark.

Re­serves’ cap­tain An­thony No­bilia said City Broth­ers were the team’s “bo­gey side”.

“We should be beat­ing those teams but that’s the way it goes,” he said. “We were the bet­ter team by far. We stuck to the game plan and frus­trated them in the first half but couldn’t hold on.

“We felt we had less and less con­trol as the game went on. They started to dom­i­nate and it felt like they were gon- na score, which they did and mo­men­tum took them over the line.”

WFC led 1-0 for much of the game but was over­run by City Broth­ers, mark­ing their third loss of the sea­son. De­spite the slip-up, WFC still leads the re­serves com­pe­ti­tion with five wins from nine starts.

The club’s MCL team had a bye last week­end but will re­turn to the field on Sun­day to play Wan­der­ers.

WFCis ranked fourth in the MCL com­pe­ti­tion, hav­ing won three of its eight matches this sea­son.
