Whitsunday United women dominate in landslide win
Article contributed by Allan Milostic.
A JUBILANT Whitsunday United Women’s team continued their winning way in 2020, with a dominant victory over the Dolphins on the weekend.
Willow Gaffney starred with 10 goals in the 15-0 win which cemented the women at the top of the table and looking good for a finals berth at the end of the season.
The rest of the club had a mixed bag of results against the Magpie Crusaders, which is to be expected as the Crusaders normally play at NPL Representative level but are in the local competition this year due to COVID.
The premier men held the Crusaders to a 0-0 draw at half time, but superior fitness brought the Crusaders home with a five goal haul in the second half.
Still an outstanding result for our men.
The youth teams also travelled to Mackay with the U13/14 Division 1 team coming away with a strong win against Country 4-0.
It was a genuine team effort with every player rising to the task.
The result puts the team 3rd on the ladder with plenty more potential to come.
The U13/14 Premier team played in what was close to the upset of the day and were unlucky to go down 4-3 to the Mackay Crusaders.
It was a tight tussle they deserved to win but two relatively soft goals to the opponents ultimately cost them the match.
They dominated the second half and have now shown beyond doubt that this team will be a premiership contender in October.
Currently 2nd on the ladder, the Magpies chairman said he thoroughly enjoyed watching the game and looked forward to watching future match ups between the clubs.
The U15/16 team was slightly short of numbers but put on a brave effort against one of the top Premier sides in this comp, with several U13/14’s backing up for a second game.
Going down 8-0 is a good result and this team is playing really well.
We are looking forward to some wins to reward their efforts soon.
The Whitsunday United Club is playing against Rangers in Proserpine this Saturday 15th August at Les Stagg oval.
