Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Another huge home round provided plenty of Joy for Whitsunday fans.
U13 Div1 couldn’t quite hit their straps and despite trying really hard they went down 5-0 to Lions. It was a different story for U13 Prems who were on fire with two matches this weekend. On Saturday they dispatch Wanderers 3-0. After a tight and scoreless first half, Whitsunday came out strong in the second half with committed play in the mid-field leading to 3 goals – two for Matt Logan and one fir Kiarna Paterson.
On Sunday the U13 Prems faced City Brothers who beat them by 3 goals in round 1. An early blitz by Whitsunday shocked City with two early goals by Noah Hayman putting Whitsunday in front. City came out firing in the second half scoring a goal and a late penalty to them had everyone on edge. Goal Keeper Will Logan saved the day with a great save giving his team 2 from 2 on the weekend.
U15 Div1 did everything they could and generally had the better of play against Dolphins but just could convert the many opportunities they created, going down 2-0 at the finish. A disappointing result for a huge effort.
The Women continued their winning form with a hard-fought win against Magpies in Reserves. A well-deserved win and huge credit to the entire team.
The Premier Women demolished an understrength Magpies side 8-1 with a dominant performance that cemented second place on the ladder.
Division 1 and 2 Men had a great afternoon, securing their first wins of the season. Div2 men came out first and ran out 3-0 winners over County in a composed display.
Div1 Men came out next and were again facing Country, another strong start saw Kai Savy score two and Aaron Morgan score one in the first half. The second half saw Country work back into the game with a stronger midfield display and they managed to get one back, before the WUFC boys finished the game off with a nicely chipped goal by Josh Lowe to win 4-1
