Boambee Eagles soar at top of Women’s Division One

Kylie McDonald scored the winning goal to extend Boambee’s lead at the top of Women’s Division One

KYLIE McDonald’s goal proved to be the decisive moment in Boambee’s quest to maintain their lead in Women’s Division One at Ayrshire Park last Saturday.

Goal-scoring machine McDonald expertly converted a precision penalty, sealing a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Coffs City United in a fiercely contested match where every tackle mattered.

Despite their relentless efforts, the young Lionesses couldn’t find the breakthrough they desperately sought, as Boambee’s resolute defence proved to be a formidable obstacle.

Boambee coach Neil Witherdin commended the high quality of football showcased by both teams.

“Another very tight game between Boambee and Coffs, played at high pace creating an end to end game with players from both teams putting in big efforts.

“A first half penalty to Boambee converted by Kylie McDonald was the difference between the two sides,” he said.

Boambee’s triumph not only secured their 1-0 victory over Coffs City United but also extended their lead at the summit of Women’s Division One to an impressive seven points, with Urunga trailing in second place.

The result solidifies Boambee’s position as the team to beat in the league.

Looking ahead, Boambee travel to Woolgoolga to face the Wildcats on Saturday, July 1 at 3 pm.

In another highly anticipated encounter, the Coffs United Lionesses will host the Urunga Raiders in a battle for second place, while the Bellingen Bats will take on Sawtell, both matches also set to kick off at 3 pm on Saturday.

Shifting the focus to the Men’s NCF Premier League, Coffs City United secured a crucial 1-0 victory over the Northern Storm, enabling them to leapfrog their opponents and claim third spot on the table.

Meanwhile, the Coffs Coast Tigers delivered an impressive performance by triumphing over the table leaders, Woolgoolga Wolves, with a commanding 4-0 scoreline.

This resounding victory not only strengthened the Tigers’ hold on second place but also narrowed the gap to a mere four points between them and the Wolves.
