Clinton fights to get over United

CLINTON didn’t have it all their way against a valiant United outfit, but ran out 5-nil winners in the women’s community football game at the weekend.

With the score sitting at 1-nil at half time in Clinton’s favour, United were first to the ball

Clinton coach Sean Irons praised the tenacity of United, who took it right up to Clinton with a physical brand of football.

"They gave us a real good run and it was what our girls needed," Irons said.

"I think our intensity has dropped off a bit and our goal keeper had to make some good saves."

Young Imogen McDonald in her second game back from injury scored three goals and sweeper Samantha Williams was one of the best on the ground.

Centre mid Jaymee Birleson played her part in the victory and Kim Ellis scored two goals.

Meteors celebrated with their first competition goal after Tiffany Hyne nailed a penalty in the match against Yaralla.

Although they were beaten on the scoreboard 14-1, Meteors are slowly becoming more competitive. Full back Leanne Brooker and midfielders Heidi Knight and Coutrney Christensen played well for Meteors.

In other matches, BTFC were too good for Valleys, 8-1, Central Black defeated Calliope 2-nil and Wolves were too strong for Central White, 5-1.
