“Funny old game”: Mosman “hard done by” in 1-0 loss to Seaforth

Small-WPL Vale-Mosman19July2020-2990

Seaforth defeated Mosman 1-0 in the women’s Premier League match at Allan Border Oval on Sunday and Seaforth coach Chris Wood declared himself “very fortunate to come away with the three points”.

“It’s a funny old game,” Wood said. “Last week [in a 2-2 draw with Beacon Hill] I felt we deserved more and we didn’t get it whereas it was the total opposite against Mosman. I think they should feel a little hard done by that they didn’t come away with at least a point.

“In the end it took a screamer of a goal by Abbey Cosh to win the game.”

Wood was at pains to credit Mosman and reigning MWFA Coach of The Year Hassan Chehab.

“A massive credit to their coach, Hassan and his players, who made the game very hard for us and stifled the middle of the park,” Wood said. “They broke up our possession and countered very well.

“It took a massive performance from our backline and ‘keeper to get the clean sheet. Going forward we have to do a better job of keeping possession of the ball or teams will start to punish us.”

The result sees Seaforth sit in outright third position with Mosman four points back and tied for seventh.
