Wildcats move to the top
WOOLGOOLGA waltzed to the top of the women’s 1st division table courtesy of a comfortable 11-0 win over the Coffs Coast Tigers on Saturday.
In such a decisive victory it’s easy to say that the Wildcats were dominant in all departments but the Tigers girls kept trying all day without much luck.
It has been a tough campaign so far for the Tigers having conceded 40 goals in four matches while still looking for one of their own. Still orange and black heads rarely dropped and they made the Wildcats work hard for each of their goals.
Credit again must go the Tigers ’keeper Di Walker.
If it weren’t for the number of times she got in the way of the many shots fired at her the scoreline could’ve really ballooned.
When the ball did get past Walker and into the back of the net there were several Wildcats players lining up to get their name on the scoresheet.
Janica Lacey and Jasmin Courtenay both scored hat-tricks while Ashli Deane grabbed a double. Club veteran Bub Hoskins also scored as did Keely Thompson and Lindy Schofield.
While the girls up the front got the glory the best player for Woolgoolga was actually one of their backs.
Full back Maree Houbert proved to be a rock at the back and made several decisive runs forward. One in particular was memorable as Houbert slid past several defenders and crossed the ball for Lacey to score.
