Women’s reps in tense game with Thunder
IT WAS an intense game for Stanthorpe women's representative football when they battled it out against a National Premier League side at Inter Club last Saturday.
The local women played South West Thunder and put on a great performance for the home crowd.
Assistant coach Franco Arcidiacono said he was proud of the girls' efforts.
"The end result was us losing 5-1, but the score doesn't at all reflect the game," he said.
"Our girls were playing against some of the best in the country."
Mr Arcidiacono said the first quarter was a nail-biter.
"We missed two goals, unfortunately, but it was close," he said.
"The South West Thunder girls are very experienced.
"Most of them play for the Raiders."
In the third quarter, the women also missed a penalty.
"We were out of season and began to tire," Mr Arcidiacono said.
The Stanthorpe women's side will continue training in the new year, with more representative matches planned for 2014.
