And that’s a wrap for WFC folks
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.
SEASON’S END: WFC Premiers game against Magpies Football Club last Saturday.
