Georgia Silvy scored a sensational hat-trick to fire the Coffs City United Lionesses to a 6-0 victory.

GEORGIA Silvy scored a sensational hat-trick to fire the Coffs City United Lionesses to a 6-0 victory over Sawtell on Saturday, April 20 at Forsyth Park in the HIT105.5 North Coast Premier League.

Two first-half goals by Silvy and one by Chelsea Mallett put the Lionesses in a commanding 3-0 lead at halftime.

The Lionesses continued the pressure in the second half, scoring a brilliant team goal with a stunning finish by Hadiya Aldakhi.

Layla Oliver stroked the ball into the bottom corner to make it 5-0 before Georgia Silvy capped off a wonderful personal performance, scoring her hat-trick from the penalty spot.

Lionesses’ coach Nathan Silvy was delighted with the team’s performance.

“I was extremely proud of the way the girls controlled the game from the outset,” he said.

“We created lots of chances but were struggling to convert the opportunities.

“Once we got one we gained some confidence and went into halftime with a 3-0 lead.

“The second half was much the same as the first with us controlling the game.

“I was super impressed by our defence keeping a clean sheet for two weeks running.”

After two wins from two matches the coach wasn’t getting carried away and focused on continual improvement and the next match.

“Moving on, I would like to see us convert more of the opportunities we are creating and increase our ball speed.

“We are looking forward to the challenge of the unknown when we face Orara next weekend.

“It’s great to have a new team in the competition and seeing the women’s competition grow.”

The Lionesses travel to Upper Orara to face the Orara Valley Dingoes on Saturday 27 April at 3pm.

The Woolgoolga Wildcats defeated Orara 4-2 on Friday night in Woolgoolga and next face high flying Urunga at home on Saturday 27 April at 3pm.
