MWFA women’s Premier League round eight review

MANLY Allambie are now outright first on the ladder following a convincing 3-1 win over Beacon Hill on Sunday at Millers Reserve.

Kiah Kennedy, Ellen Wheatley and Chloe Guthrie scored the goals, with Kyle Cannon a very happy coach at the final whistle.

“We prepared well in the lead up, then stuck to the game plan,” he said.

“Beacon Hill are dangerous, with Jess (Wootton) and Ayse (Adalis) you need to be on your toes for the entire 90 minutes.

“To our girls credit, those two didn’t really get a sniff…Beacon Hill scored a consolation goal, but we had the result wrapped up by then.”

After forming a team in pre-season from scratch, Manly Allambie incredibly find themselves as the competition yardstick with eights rounds played.

But don’t expect Cannon to get carried away.

“We have 13 more games before semis, plenty can happen before then,” he said.

“We just need to maintain the rage.”

Elsewhere, Brookvale moved into the top four after beating Forest Killarney 3-1, Wakehurst outgunned Seaforth by the same score and Avalon versus Manly Vale finished 0-0.
