United girls in top form

IT has taken very little time for Coffs United to prove that they will once again be one of the powerhouse teams of the women’s 1st Division in 2010.

A 6-1 thumping of Woolgoolga showed the prowess that the Lionesses possess when given time and space to execute their skills.

The Lionesses began to devour their prey systematically and what appeared to be early ascendancy proved to be true with a goalie charge down by Chloe Wighton to give the first goal to Coffs.

Ashlee Mackie cemented her player of the match performance with an 80-metre run through a flailing defence to shoot 2-0 untouched.

Nicole McVicar again played through injury but the ‘magic spray’ enabled her to slot her second pearler in as many weeks to put the result beyond doubt pretty early.

Woopi were then playing for pride but with Nicky Rayner crossing as if religious there was no respite.

More breaks and clinical passes added a few more goals to the score and it was all over pretty quickly.

Also dangerous were Rachel McVicar and Georgia Allen in the guts.
