Six-goal haul lifts Tannum in soccer
A SIX-GOAL haul by midfielder Tracey O'Keefe has rocketed Tannum Sands State High into the next stage of the Queensland secondary schools Bill Turner Trophy soccer competition.
Tannum Sands High will meet the winner of the Wide Bay/Sunshine Coast regional play-off after overpowering North Mackay State High 6-0 last Thursday with O'Keefe providing the final touch for all six goals.
After a nervous start to the game, the Tannum girls were never going to be headed after leading 3-0 at halftime.
North Mackay fired up early in the second stanza but Tannum's defence held firm while O'Keefe piled on another three goals.
O'Keefe and her sister Rebecca both dominated the midfield as they so often do for the BITS club in Gladstone Soccer Federation fixtures. The victory followed similarly comfortable triumphs over Gladstone High (5-0) and Rockhampton Grammar (8-0) in previous rounds of the competition. Just as pleasing as the number of goals scored is the fact that Tannum High's solid defence has yet to concede a goal.
With the Wide Bay/Sunshine Coast victor yet to be decided, a date and venue for Tannum High's next encounter has not yet been set.
