WHITSUNDAY United FC charges towards the finals with another great round of results in the seniors, it now looks like at least 6 of the 8 Whitsunday United teams are heading to the finals series.
Our U14 Div1 side played the dominant side in their competition and made them work hard for their 2-0 win, even though we were down on players. Unlucky to concede two goals in the first half, they held the Lions scoreless in the second.
Josh Milostic was outstanding at left midfield. The U14 Prems had a challenging game against an improving City Brothers.
Also, down on players through injury, the side had plenty of shots on goal that just didn’t find the net and put themselves in a difficult position conceding a goal.
An absolute screamer of a shot from Dani Kinnear equalised the scores at half time.
There was no change to the score in the second half and the U14 Premiers hold on top place on the ladder. Hayden Milliken was tireless in defence and had a huge impact on the game.
The U16 played a Wanderers side that was determined to win and make sure of their finals spot.
With a full squad, they came out hard and fast putting pressure on the Whitsunday side from the outset.
Despite conceding an early goal the local side rallied with Rale Mudford scoring a brilliant equalised.
The game from one end to the other with both sides having opportunities but Wanderers made the most of them, running out 3-1 winners.
Tate Butler’s determination and effort inspire the depleted Whitsunday side to be competitive till the end.
The ladies are turning up the heat in the run to the finals with Div 1 having a great 7-4 win against Country. Sari Goodall was dominant in attack as she found the back of the net an incredible 6 times.
Dani Kinnear, stepping up to help from the U14’s scored a great goal and made fantastic supporting runs. The Premier Ladies had a solid 3-1 win against City Brothers.
Sari Goodall scored twice with fantastic lead up play from Hazel Farrell and Steph Mills. Willow Gaffney got the third goal through a great strike from well outside the box.
A great team effort and showing great form at the right time of the season. Both Senior Men’s teams played City Brothers with the Reserves Squad seeking a win to solidify their finals qualification.
With City Brothers just as keen to leapfrog Whitsunday on the table, the first half saw some good attacking football from both sides but the score was 0- 0 at half time.
Whitsunday opened the scoring in the second half with Scott Ferries calming scoring on the end of a cross. However, Brothers responded with two goals to hit the front.
Whitsunday kept the composure and with goals to Scott Boldy and Cy Taylor ran away victors in a close game.
The Premier Men were looking to maintain their charge for the Premiership against a tired City Brothers side.
With goals to Scott Ferries, Scott Boldy, Andrew Hodgen, Harry Hodgen (2), Josh Healey, Martyn Goodey, and a hat-trick for Hayden Filby the 10-2 win keeps their claim alive.
This weekend is the last big home round with 6 games at the Whitsunday Sports Park. Come on down and enjoy the action.
