PROLIFIC striker Akema Greenaway is helping Ingham to tear away at the top of the women’s reserve league.

The 18-year-old was on target again as our girls put five without response past the Burdekin.

It was her ninth goal in four games.

Ingham have been in blistering form, scoring 21 in so far this campaign, and conceding just once.

Fifteen of the goals have come from the strike partnership of Greenaway and Kirrily Low, who was also on target in the 5-nil win over Burdekin, with midfielder Brooke McLeod, Jade Nucifora and an own goal making up the scoring.

Greenaway is three clear at the top of the ‘Golden Boot’ ladder – with Low the second, having notched six in four.

‘She’s one of my idols,’ said the humble Greenaway about Low. ‘I grew up watching her play so it’s amazing playing in the same team as her.

‘We really believe we have a chance to win the grand final this year’.

Greenaway works just as hard off the pitch as she does on it, holding down two jobs, at Woolworths and iconic Ingham food deli Lou’s.

It has been a great start to the season, but she will need every bit of her drive to help Ingham to lift the title.

The sister side of Brothers FC are also unbeaten, having played and won three.

Our girls face Ross River in Townsville tomorrow night.

Jason Quabba scored his first goal of the season, as Ingham’s thirds lost 6-2 against Brothers in a game where both sides had chances.

David Casale powered in a Wesley Gangemi corner to mark the Herbert River side’s other goal.

Ingham’s first team lost 3-1 at home to Warriors and our reserves were beaten 5-0 by the same opposition.
