Lionesses will be hard to beat
THOSE who are claiming that Coffs United Lionesses may be the premiership favourites in 2010 saw nothing that could prove them wrong on Saturday.
The Storm girls were missing Elicia Webber which was a big loss for them but surely Webber wouldn’t have stopped the Lionesses claiming all three points on the weekend.
While Amanda Rudd tried hard for the Cyclones and ‘keeper Cassie Wakewood produced a sterling effort blocking many shots while playing with an injured hand it was the Coffs United girls who took full control of the contest with three goals in the opening 18 minutes.
New recruit Savannah Geddes was providing dozens of attacking raids and opportunities for her teammates and it was Cassie Albert and Nicky Rayner who were the main beneficiaries scoring two goals each.
Coffs United face the true test of how well they’re travelling in five days time when they face reigning premier Urunga at the Cabbage Patch.
