Ingham Women 6-0 Rebels
Ingham Youths 4-0 Rebels Green
INGHAM’S undefeated women won 6-0 for the second week in a row as they cruised past Rebels at Augie Pane Field last night.
Goals from Kirrily Low (2), Aimee Godfrey (2), Akema Greenaway and Brooke McLeod sealed their seventh straight win – and left them top of the reserves ladder.
Last week our girls put six past Estates without reply, with Low again scoring twice while Greenaway, Randal Perakovic, Adriana Spano and Maddy Greenaway grabbed a goal each.
It was a first-game back from injury for Maddy (16), who is the younger Greenaway, and she wasted no time joining her 19-year-old sister Akema on the score sheet.
Ingham have now scored 36, conceding just twice, in the seven games they’ve played this season.
Three-times premier league player-of-the season Low has scored 13 of those goals, and Akema has bagged 11.
There may not be a more deadly partnership in North Queensland at the moment.
The girls have a bye next week before travelling to play Brothers in round nine.
At the time of writing, second-place Brothers were still undefeated – so their match with Ingham is shaping up to be a title-decider.
Meanwhile, Ingham youths showed great bounce-back ability to beat Rebels 4-0.
James Formosa’s men suffered a 5-nil defeat to a classy Warriors side last week, but shook off their disappointment to put in a dominant display at home last night.
Kolby Quabba opened the scoring against the side he played for last season before Haydan Girgenti and Ethan Coco scored in quick succession, giving Ingham three goals in five minutes.
Coco got his second of the night with five minutes remaining to seal the victory.
Coach James Formosa said: ‘After a few tough weeks the boys put together a great performance.
‘We saw glimpses of some real class – and we know they’re capable of that.
‘Haydan Girgenti, Liam Jensen and Seth McCaul were outstanding, but so were all the boys.’
The youths have a bye in round eight before travelling to play Brothers.
