Round 3 of Central Coast Football’s Women’s Premier League (WPL) saw interesting results across the board.
Previously winless Woongarrah broke through for their first victory of the season, whilst ladder leaders Kanwal were held to a share of the points by Toukley.
Frost Reserve played host to the match between Kincumber and Woongarrah, two sides languishing in the bottom three of the WPL after a disappointing start to the 2019 season.
Both sides were looking to pick up their first victories of the new campaign, with Woongarrah yet to acquire a point, whilst Kincumber picked up a solitary point from their draw with Toukley last round.
In a match that Kincumber Coach, John Manners, described as “pretty evenly matched,” it was Woongarrah who managed to claim the three points, breaking through for their first victory of the season.
Both, Nyah Small and Angela Cabarrus, managed their first goals of the season, canceling out a goal to Kincumbers’, Sophie Piltzto, to see the Wildcats climb into eighth place on the WPL ladder.
Kanwal headed into last weekend’s match with Toukley looking to maintain their 100 per cent start to the new season with a third win on the trot, whilst Toukley were searching for their first victory of the new campaign after two draws to start the year.
It was Kanwal who managed to strike the first blow in this match, as, Hayley Green, netted her fourth goal of the season with a well taken finish, to give the Bulls a 1-0 half time lead.
In what was a very even match, Toukley continued to push for an equaliser in the second half, before, Brooke Samuel, found herself free bearing down on goal, making no mistake with the finish to draw the sides level.
Both sides had chances to win the match, however neither could produce a goal that would win the match, with the game ending one apiece.
The result sees Kanwal’s perfect record come to an end after three matches, however both sides remain as the only undefeated sides in the WPL after three weeks.
