And that’s a wrap for WFC folks

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SOC­CER: It has been a tough sea­son for the Whitsunday Foot­ball Club.

De­spite de­ter­mi­na­tion from play­ers, the af­ter­math of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Deb­bie meant re­duced num­bers.

Last week­end the Men’s Premier team drew two-all against the Mackay Brothers and the Re­serves suf­fered a cru­cial seven-nil loss to the Mackay Lions, keep­ing them out of the semi-fi­nals.

Trail­ing three down at half time, the Re­serves turned a flat first half around too late in the game to make the win­ning dif­fer­ence.

Stand-out player Nathan Soth­mann cov­ered the field well with An­thony No­bilia step­ping into the goals de­spite a sprained an­kle to free up more play­ers for the field.

No­bilia said he was proud of the ef­fort from play­ers.

“I ap­plaud the guys who put in 100% and were there week in and week out,” he said.

The women’s Pre­miers lost three-nil to City Brothers in their last and clos­est game of the sea­son.

Cap­tain Michelle Wild said both teams had their chances but the Brothers were just bet­ter at con­vert­ing pos­ses­sion to goals.

“Re­becca Paige was out­stand­ing in goal and Fiona McTav­ish was great across the back line,” Wild said.
