Mackay and Whitsunday Life
After the final round of the season, five of ten Whitsunday United teams progress to the finals series.
Congratulations to all our finalists including U13 Div 1 (3rd place), U15 FQPL (4th place), Men U23 (4th place).
Special mention to our senior prem teams with our Premier Women having their best season ever with a second place in the Premiership conceding only to the top of the table Lions with a narrow loss and a draw.
On Saturday, the U13 Prems had their final game of the season against 2nd placed Magpies.
They played with determination and fantastic team spirit and were unlucky not to score in the first half.
A good effort by the young squad.
U15 Div1 also finished their season with an 8-0 win against Rangers.
After a frustrating season of draws and close losses it was great for the kids to end on a high!
The U15s Premier Team took on the Mackay Dolphins in what was a very close encounter between two top four teams.
A much-improved effort from the team and will look to keep improving into the finals next week.
The U23 Women played top of the table Dolphins at home.
Congratulations to all of the Ressie ladies, although they didn’t make the finals they should be proud of a very successful season.
The Premier ladies had a 7-0 win against Dolphins, with Whitsundays started strong, dominating possession for most of the first half.
The ladies now focus on the first round of finals next weekend where a win will put them straight into the grand final.
The U23 Men played Lions in a game that would decide who would finish 2nd in the league.
With the score ending 2-1 the boys are still in a good spot to get finals football.
The Premier Men dominated proceedings from start to finish in what was a great team performance. Sherro added a 4th and completed his hatrick to round out the last home game of the season with a 4-0 win.
Whitsunday United FC would like to thank everyone who came out to watch games this season as it really does help. See you all for Finals Footy !!!!
