Woongarrah FC 10 vs 0 Kariong United FC:
Goals: Emma Hurley x6 (WGA), Alisha Rais x2 (WGA), Tarra Southern (WGA), Nyah Small (WGA).
Woongarrah headed into Sunday’s clash with Kariong United boosted by the fact that they had taken four points from a possible six over the previous two weeks against top-four caliber sides as they looked to end the season on a positive note.
Their opponents Kariong United would have been targeting Sunday’s clash with the ninth-placed ‘Cats as their best opportunity to ensure they didn’t finish the season without a competition point. Unfortunately for Kariong, Woongarrah were well and truly up for Sunday’s clash at Hamlyn Terrace as they piled on ten unanswered goals to run out resounding 10-0 victors, a scoreline made all the more incredible by the fact Woongarrah as a team had only managed 16 goals in their 16 matches so far this season. Top-scorer Emma Hurley thrust herself into contention for the 2019 Golden Boot award after she managed six goals in Sunday’s clash, joining Kanwal’s Hayley Green and East Gosford’s Kelly Hogan as the only players to score five or more in a match this campaign.
Alisha Rais added two goals whilst both Tarra Southern and Nyah Small also got on the scoresheet as Woongarrah recorded an emphatic win that saw them rise into eighth position on the Central Coast Unity Bank Women’s League table.
Woongarrah finish the season with a trip to seventh-placed Toukley, of whom they’ll leapfrog if they can pick up another victory, whilst Kariong United face an in-form Gosford City outfit where they’ll look to avoid an 18th consecutive defeat.
