The Wolues FC welcomed back Head Coach John Reilly with a resounding 8-0 victory against the Panthers FC as the FA’s Women’s Futsal League continued at Cedar School on Saturday 16th January 2021.
Having not played a league match in over a month, and with Coach Reilly pitch side for the first time, the girls were keen to set the tone early in the game and leave no doubt who the league leaders were.
Passing the ball around with confidence the Wolues created all the early chances and it was Gabi Jermyn who opened the scoring, firing home at the back post from a Darci Reich cross.
The Panthers though looked to hit back straight away, and it took the cat like reflexes of Tinia Van Zoost to keep the lead intact before the Wolues were able to put the game to bed with some silky passing moves.
Tola Broderick took full advantage of some great build up play, often inspired by Ariel Mohammed, to claim her first hat trick for the club and further goals came from Reich (2), Jermyn with her second of the game and Zolita Bamford as the Wolues dominated.
“It feels amazing to be part of a team that has put so much effort into getting to the level we are at now” commented Broderick “we have trained together for years waiting to put our hard work into match situations and I’m proud of our progress, having scored a hat trick is merely a bonus.”
“Each of the goals were a result of great build up of play with wonderful final passes that has become a bit of a trademark for the Wolues Ladies team” noted assistant Coach, Walter Reich”.
