Girls unbeaten in first four championship games
A CURLING corner that found its way into the net capped a perfect start for Wide Bay's female Queensland School Sport 10-12yrs Football Championships team.
The strike secured a 1-0 against Sunshine Coast to continue its unbeaten start to the competition.
Coach Paul Ash said the moment was a highlight of which the girls should be proud, but the way the team responded should be held in much higher regard.
"That one moment we scored, then we defended really strong,” Ash said.
"It's very pleasing as a coach when they're working hard together. To have four from four after two days, the girls should be very proud.
"We always say to be in the game you have to have that desire, desire means a lot. A lot of these teams are on the same playing field when they get here and it's just who turns up on the day.
"They've stuck it in, worked hard for each other, and that's all you can ask.”
Wide Bay's girls will face its toughest challenge when it plays Met West, the team Ash described as arguably the strongest in their pool.
"It'll come down to who finishes on top from this game and they have some good quality players in that team,” Ash said.
"As I said, we turn up on the day, we can match it with anyone. It's happy days at the moment.”
The boys had a tough day at Hervey Bay's Tavistock St fields as it lost both of its games, but coach Troy Rober't was confident the would bounce back today.
"We'll have to beat Darling Downs to make that top six but they're confident of playing well,” he said.
Wide Bay rallied in both games, but ultimately fell 2-0 to Met East and 3-1 to South Coast.
