Redbacks win Women’s Premier Division Night Series

Beckenham Angels coach Jason Washington-King said his side were beaten by an experienced Northern Redbacks who could go the season undefeated following last night’s 4-1 loss in the Bankwest Women’s Premier Division Night Series Final at Coker Park.

Report by Kelechi Osunwa

A sterling second half performance helped the Northern Redbacks run out 4-1 winners after a concerted spell of pressure from the tireless Angels.

After being down 2-0 Beckenham found their way back into the game just before half time when Jamie-Lee Gale sped past the Redbacks defence and finished with aplomb.

But their second half resurgence failed to change the score line as the experience of the Redbacks and a string of crucial saves by Tracy Wheeler Medal winner Kathleen Waycott settled the game and added the finishing touches to a 4-1 score line.

The final pitted up the 2013 Night Series winners Redbacks against the defending champions and Wasington-King believes the Night Series title could only be the start for the rival Redbacks.

“We were just beaten by a better team tonight,” Washington-King said.

“I think their experience proved to be crucial and they played better than us.

“I think it will be hard for anyone to beat them this year with the talent they have and I think they have a better team than the one who went undefeated in 2013.”

The Redbacks had started the game on the front foot and had seen a number of half chances turn to nothing but the opening goal proved to be worth the wait.

Former Perth Glory Women midfielder Elisa D’Ovidio, who was a constant menace for the Beckenham defence, weaved her way through a congested midfield and found Renee Leota who delicately curled an effort into the top corner.

Jessica Burton pounced on a loose corner to make it 2-0 before Gale scored just before half time.

Boyed by Gale’s goal Beckenham blitzed the Redbacks’ defence but found Waycott in superb form as she denied two gilt-edged chances from Stephanie Cain when it looked certain the winger would score.

Beckenham were made to rue those chances as the Redbacks took the game by the scruff of the neck in a 10 minute spell of concerted pressure.

Ellis Glanfield made amends for her missed penalty when she tapped in a loose ball after Kate Burns could only parry D’Ovidio’s far post header, before Demi Vance finished off the scoring from a well-taken penalty.

Beckenham almost claimed one back but Katarina Jukic’s effort was cleared off the line as the Redbacks saw the game out.

The win gives new coach Conrad McKelvie a perfect start and feels his side must remain hungry after beating title contenders Queens Park and the Angels.

“I’m really pleased with the result,” McKelvie said. “I thought it was a really good performance by the whole team.

“We were challenged today but the experience of Vids (D’Ovidio) and the girls got us through a really tough 15 minutes when they (Beckenham) were on top.”

With the new season about to get underway, McKelvie said there is no time for complacency.

“We don’t want to start thinking that we’ve got this in the bag because we’ve beaten everybody,” he said. “We’ve got to continue improving and make sure we don’t sit there thinking it will be easy for us.”

Fremantle City win Division One Night Series

Monday, March 30, 2015

Fremantle City won the 2015 Women’s State League Division One Night Series Final, after a hard fought 2-0 victory over Stirling Panthers at Coker Park on Sunday.

Report by Peter Simcox

Zoe Andrijich’s free kick early gave City the lead, but they had goalkeeper Morgan Cox to thank for making a number of fine saves to thwart Stirling, before a well taken second goal in the second half from Zoe Dewar sealed the win.

City Coach Felim Rugel said Cox was his man of the match, but after a lack luster first half they switched on after the break and deservedly won.

City coach Felim Rugel said despite the early goal his side’s first half performance was not the best.

“We switched on after the break and we deserved the win, and we scored a couple of good goals, both to Zoe,” he said.

“Morgan (Cox) saved us in the first half and made a couple of vital saves in the second half and I thought she was our man of the match, but we’re really pleased to win the competition.”

Both sides went through the group stage undefeated, so it was expected to be a tight game, but City had a perfect start and were ahead on six minutes.

Stirling defender Rebecca Salsano brought down Rachael Withoos on the edge of the penalty area, and Andrijich’s free kick deflected off the wall and into the net, giving Stirling keeper Zoe George no chance.

Stirling lifted and had Fremantle on the back foot, and Cox saved from Lauren Continibali moments later, and on ten minutes they went closer.

Sarah Hughes’ long-range free kick crashed off the crossbar and Continibali’s follow up header flashed over the top.

The woodwork then came to Stirling’s rescue five minutes before half time, Withoos’ shot crashed off the crossbar and away to safety.

Stirling ended the half the better, and a short corner caught Fremantle napping, and Continibali’s shot was superbly saved by Cox. From the resulting Continibali’s in-swinging corner, Cox had to be alert to tip it over the top at full stretch.

The game was made safe for Fremantle when they added a second on 56 minutes. A great through ball from Kate Thayer sent Dewar racing clear and she finished clinically past George.

Fremantle continued to press and Andrijich saw her shot well saved by George, before Dewar’s shot was cleared off the line by Monique Nicolaou.

But it was Fremantle who was celebrating after the game and skipper Dom Delfs said it was a pleasing performance against a good Stirling side.

“It was tough first half but we brought it together in the second half and got the job done,” she said. “After the break we got a great start with a good team move and a good finish from Zoe, and it turned the whole game around for us.”

Angels defend title in Night Series final

March 27, 2015 By: Penny Category: Night Series

Friday, March 27, 2015

Beckenham Angels are hoping to win a second successive Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division Night Series title when they face Northern Redbacks at Coker Park on Sunday.

Football West News

The Angels, who beat Queens Park in last year’s final, are unbeaten in this year’s Night Series. But they will have to be at their best against a Redbacks side they have not beaten since 2013.

Redbacks, who have a 100 percent Night Series record, will head into the final full of confidence after overcoming Bankwest Women State League Premier Division Champions Queens Park 1-0 in the semi-final.

Newly appointed Redbacks coach Conrad McKelvie said the pre-season competition was a great way to experiment with his players.

“It was about finding the best combination of those players and implementing a system that would allow the player’s abilities to best complement each other,” McKelvie said.

“On this count the team has done well, they’ve adapted to different approaches by ourselves and other teams each week and done it fairly successfully.”

Former UWA-Nedlands coach McKelvie said the Angels were a close-knit group of players who have had great success in the past.

“Beckenham have technically sound players all over the pitch and some match winners who have shown their worth through the Night Series,” he said.

“We will play to our strengths, and I think that this will result in a great exhibition between two excellent teams in the final.”

Angels coach Jason Washington-King said Redbacks had a well-balanced team with lots of depth.

“The way Redbacks have played to date they have had a lot of players in the middle of the park and it will be a challenge for us to negate this numerical advantage,” he said.

“However if we effectively execute our game plan and play to our full potential, we will give ourselves an excellent shot at winning the game.”

Washington-King said his side has played well at times but had been very inconsistent.

“In order to give ourselves the best chance in the final we need to be more consistent with our effort and application and reduce our errors,” he said.

“We are still settling in and working on structures and roles and responsibilities.

“I’m happy with the resilience and application shown by the team when we have got behind in games and I think we have fought hard to get a result in every match.”

Panthers ready to pounce in final

March 27, 2015 By: Penny Category: Night Series

Friday, March 27, 2015

Stirling Panthers coach Frank DiCosta has been surprised by his side’s progression to the final of the Bankwest Women’s State League Division One Night Series final against Fremantle City at Coker Park on Sunday.

Football West News

DiCosta’s Metropolitan Division One side were invited to take part in the State League Night Series with remarkable results.

“They’ve been nothing short of outstanding,” he said of the Panthers’ performances. “The girls have met every challenge and have shown unbelievable character.”

Fremantle City’s coach Felim Rugel said the Night Series was a great way to have a look at the players and prepare for their first season in the Division One Women’s State League.

“Because we are a new club the important thing for myself and the coaching staff was to see all the players and work towards the season,” he said.

“I think every girl that got the chance to play in the Night Series gave their best and that is what I asked for.

“I think the performance was good and I’m happy the way everything is going.”

Having coached against the Panthers last season, Rugel knows his side have to be at their best on Sunday.

“I think we have the team to win it,” he said. “But having coached against Stirling Panthers last year we know that they are a really good team and only a great performance on the night will get us over the line.”

The match will be played as a curtain raiser to the Women’s State League Premier Division Night Series final between Northern Redbacks and Beckenham Angels.
