Moore Park bedazzles Brothers side
MOORE Park Women have claimed the division one premiership in their first year of competition with an unforgiving 11-1 defeat of Brothers Aston Villa.
In an extraordinary performance, Moore Park broke away in the second half to score nine goals in rapid-fire fashion with five goals scored in the opening 10 minutes.
Striker Tanya McKee got Moore Park off to a good start with a goal in the opening five minutes of the game and backed it up with a second in the final stages of the half.
Brothers Aston Villa striker Katrina White scored the team's only goal.
Coach Paul Ash took his players aside at the half-time break to warn against taking the “foot of the pedal” in the second half of the match.
“I wasn't disappointed with their performance, but I knew they had more in them,” he said.
“We spoke about going back to our game plan and attacking with more intensity.
“I think it must have sunk in because when they came out, they came out firing.”
McKee and Rebecca Hollindale led the goal surge in the second half scoring two and three goals each.
Sarah Bretag, Peta Kimber, Elle Leslight and Taryn Gollshewsky helped extend the lead each scoring a goal.
“It was a really beautiful thing to see as a coach,” Ash said.
“They just kept coming in wave after wave of attack.
Ash said the premiership had assured Moore Park's place in division one competition in coming years.
“There have been a lot of hard yards put in by the girls, so it's nice for them to know it was all worth it,” he said.
