Match reports 20 August 2023: The final week for many!


ANUWFC 3 - West Canberra Wanderers 0

West Canberra Wanderers were hosting ANU WFC early afternoon on Sunday, and the University club brought all three points back from Wanderers Park, putting four points between them and their opponents at the table (3-0).

Rob Illingworth’s team once again had their number one offensive threat wearing the keeper’s gloves, but Roxie Swart did not let that get between them and the stat sheet. An 18th minute goal kick became an assist for Sofia Chaverra, thanks to an effort from the corner of the box.

Isabella Hopkins doubled the lead with a smart header to deflect Sheridan McElligott’s free kick in the back of the net ten minutes before the break.

Four minutes into the second act and despite a few chances, the Wanderers were conceding again, Alexandra Serras’ thumping effort from afar rising high before diving under the crossbar. West Canberra remains eighth on the table, trailing Tuggeranong by two points.

ANUWFC 1 - Majura FC Strollers 1

The season ended with a 1-1 draw. Although chances were created by both teams in the first half, we were the more fluent, but did not capitalise on our opportunities. We had a sluggish start to the second half, however gradually gained our ascendency. A raid down the right side led to a great across from Charlotte to Emma S who took a touch and drove the ball into the top right corner of the net. The game ebbed and flowed and a questionable penalty was awarded that led to the equaliser.

A big thank you to our veteran goalkeeper of almost two games, Penny for pulling on the gloves. She got her hand to the penalty and almost saved it. Everybody played well, however three players Liv, Lauren and Dorcas had strong games and share my MVPs.
