WFC cruise home
AFTER a near miss last week Whitsunday FC broke through for their first win of the season with a 2-0 result over the Mackay Crusaders on Saturday night.
Played in wet and windy conditions at the Whitsunday Sports Park, the home side were thrilled to get the monkey off their back for 2013 and played well in the two-goal victory.
A stunning goal from a free kick opened the scoring for WFC and they stayed resolute in defence before adding another goal in the second half.
Scott Lee earned man of the match honours for his hard working, determined and team focused effort as WFC moved to a one win, one draw and one loss record for the year.
City Brothers showed their class against WFC in their division 1 encounter with an impressive 9-3 victory at the Whitsunday Sports Park.
Down 6-1 at half time, WFC refused to yield and added two second half goals in a spirited display from the young side.
Mitchell Clarke, Matthew Page and Lathan Dunn all scored for WFC and Byron Thompson took out the man of the match award.
The Whitsunday FC women controlled their game for 90 minutes to run away 7-0 winners.
WFC showed off their attacking prowess in a physical but fair game where City simply couldn't get on the scoreboard against the goal hungry home team.
Abi Draper added two goals to her season tally and teammates Jenny Divers, Fran Stannard, Darcey Borellini, Abi Draper and Adeline Poid all added to the score sheet.
Poid's fantastic strike was a definite contender for the goal of the year as she gave the opposing goalie no chance.
WFC goalie Morgan Tween also impressed, producing her third clean sheet in a row.
