Late goal all that separates Hervey Bay's WBL sides

UNITED Warriors might have been the favourites but KSS Jets proved they can match their Wide Bay League rivals.

The Warriors arrived at Hervey Bay Sports Club full of confidence and with recent results on their side courtesy of their 10-0 win over the Jets on April 26.

They were met by a rejuvenated Jets side intent on turning two weeks of tough losses into a win, but United managed to escape with the three competition points. Dakota Beatie scored the only goal.

United captain Sarah Walker said the Jets were a much stronger outfit to the one they defeated a fortnight ago.

"I think they had a few that were missing in that first game but they defended really well,” Walker said.

Walker said her side struggled for momentum.

"It wasn't our best game but the effort was there until the end,” she said.

"We had about five players out so we had a number of our first division players play up for us.”

Players from the Bend It Like Becky junior girls' competition accompanied players from both teams onto the field.

Bend It Like Becky games are played in Hervey Bay and Maryborough.
