GRAND FINAL WINNERS // Women's Capital League
Last minute Goal seals Grand Final win for UQ Senior Women!
UQFC 2 (Blake 59', Philpot 90')
North Pine 1 (Di Francesco 86')
HT 0-0 FT 2-1
A 90th minute Melina Philpot goal snatched victory for UQFC over Champions North Pine at Wolter Park, just when the game looked destined for a further thirty minutes.
Top goal scorer Cairisjan Mitchell helped put UQ in front on the hour mark when North Pine keeper Sasha Vijars was unable to clear her cross into the box. With three UQ players in the six yard box, it was Lauren Blake who got the final touch to poke the ball home.
With time running out, Natalie Di Francesco powered a shot into the back of the net that UQ keeper Rosalie Petersen could only parry away a corner as the game looked set to go into extra time.
With the scoreboard showing full time, the UQFC Senior Women pounced when Jessica Condon broke down the left and slid the ball into the box. In a foot race, Philpot managed to get a toe to the ball before Vijars could get to it and as the North Pine defence looked on helplessly - the ball bobbled in at the far post.
A subdued first half came to life early in the second term when Mikarlah Born forced the first real save of the game from Petersen.
North Pine had a couple of opportunities midway through the half to level when firstly they were unable to force the ball home from a goal mouth scramble before a Morgan Schoener cross caused problems at the far post and nearly saw UQ turn the ball into their own goal.
Condon had a good opportunity to seal the game before North Pine levelled when she was put into space down the left, made her way to the edge of the box before firing straight at Vijars.
With only seconds remaining, Philpot’s goal was the nail in the coffin for North Pine as they backed-up their semi-final win over the champions to take out the silverware.
Bill Williams - UQFC: "That was a pretty exciting game wasn't it. I had a feeling they had one in them, I thought we were going to extra time. It was a good quality grand final as you'd expect between the top two teams and on a quality field which made for a better game. Well done to North Pine, they took out the premiership and we've managed to take the Grand FInal.”
Jamie Sanckson - North Pine: "All finals are the same aren't they, can go either way. It wasn't our day in the end but well done to UQ."
* Existing UQFC players will NOT be required to attend trials as they have been observed throughout the entire season in games and training sessions. UQFC's Team Coaches, Director of Coaching and Technical Director have a combined understanding of each players ability, commitment to the team and willingness to learn. We are mindful that not all players are able to demonstrate these qualities in a trial environment and wish to avoid unnecessary stress that may occur due to nerves, sickness, injury or absence due to other end of season commitments. All current UQFC players who wish to continue to play with the club in 2018 will be offered a place in an appropriate team for next season.
