Ylias goal earns Queens Park cup

Monday, March 21, 2016

Former Melville City midfielder Emma Ylias came back to haunt her former club by scoring the only goal as Queens Park won the Women’s Premier Night Series Final 1-0 at Coker Park last night.

Report by Peter Simcox

In front of a big crowd, which included former Socceroos coach Frank Arok, the home side took the lead early but both sides had chances in an entertaining game.

Queens Park coach Ben Anderton said the team’s hard work in the pre-season had paid off.

“I thought we deserved the win,” he said. “They pressed us late but I thought we did enough to win it.

“The two sisters at the back for us were outstanding tonight, Stacey (Learmont) and Brittany (Woodfin) play so well together. And Stacey, well what can I say, I can play her anywhere on the park and she will be good.”

“We’ve worked hard in pre-season, and we have a few new faces in the squad, and tonight I thought Ylias was good, also Jessica (Darmargo), she has been great throughout this tournament and it bodes well for the up-coming season.”

Ylias, who joined Queens Park this season, said she came to the club to win titles.

“It was a great contest and playing against my old club, who play a fast type of game, made it challenging but we’re happy we came out on top,” she said.

“I’ve never won a trophy with a club outdoors, so it’s extra special for me, and that’s why I came to the club. It’s a good start but there is a long season ahead.”

It was a perfect start for Queens Park and they were ahead after only four minutes. Brooke Johnston played the ball out to Darmargo on the right and her deep cross picked out the unmarked Ylias at the back post, who headed home from close-range.

Despite conceding the early goal Melville hit back and on a sweeping counter attack Lucy Jerram raced forward and slid the ball into the path of  Holly Dangen, whose shot on the run flashed just wide of a post.

Both sides had late chances as the game opened up. Johnston headed wide from Nikki Campbell’s corner for Queens Park, before Melville’s Holly Dangen raced in on goal, but a superb last ditch tackle from Stacey Learmont cleared the danger

Melville and Perth Glory keeper Evie Gooch saved well from Johnston early in the second half before Darmargo’s first-time shot deflected over the bar.

It was still anyone’s game and Melville pressed late looking for the equaliser but with Brittany Woodfin and Learmont outstanding at the heart of the Queens Park defence they couldn’t find a way through.

Queens Park defender Stacey Learmont was named Player of the Match.

Stirling stun Roos in Night Series final

Monday, March 21, 2016

Stirling Panthers clawed back from a 2-0 deficit at half-time to win the Women’s State League Division One Night Series final 4-2 on penalties at Coker Park on Sunday night.

Report by Kelechi Osunwa

Wanneroo City had made the most of a clinical first half as they raced to a 2-0 lead courtesy of a fine curling finish from Teal Bennett and a deft glance from Tahlia Murfitt.

Stirling had always looked threating with their pace through Lauren Continibali, who crashed a fine effort off an upright, but found Wanneroo custodian Holly Cavalli in fine form in the first half as she pulled a series of clutch saves.
It was not until an inspired second half did the Panthers manage to breach the resolute Roos defence.

Panthers coach Frank Di Costa was pleased with the resolute character of his young side, many of whom were experiencing their first taste of the division through the Night Series, and put the second half showing down to patience.

“I thought we were always in the game to be honest,” Di Costa said.

“I thought the goals would come we just couldn’t afford to push the panic button.

“I thought we were controlling the game and sort of missing some chances. Yeah we gave away some soft goals but the character of the team has been really strong.”

No individual showed more desire and tenacity than captain Danielle Monastra who broke a number of Wanneroo attacks in a frantic second half.

Stirling were given a lifeline 15 minutes into the second half when Sophie Podmore breached the Roos’ off-side trap and raced away to slot past an exposed Cavalli.

The goal seemed to spur both teams as Stirling looked for an equaliser while Wanneroo played on the counter as they searched for a third goal.

With 12 minutes to play Stirling found an equaliser. Continibali had breached the offside trap again but a smothering defence failed to clear her initial attempt and Clara Lay followed up to expertly lob Cavalli and equalise.

With the match drawing close to full time both teams spurned great chances to win the game at the death.

Caitlin Vallelonga raced through on goal but once Cavalli stood her ground well and Sheridyn Graham had a chance to win it at the death but her effort trickled narrowly wide.

The match went straight to penalties and with Stirling leading 4-2 following successful conversions from Lay, Lara Ameduri, Continibali and Monastra, Wanneroo’s Karen Wodzianski needed to score to give the Roos a chance but saw her effort over the crossbar.

Coach Di Costa hoped the Night series win would give his girls some invaluable experience in their first season in the state league.

“It’s our first season in the state league following promotion from metro div one last year and I don’t think many people would have seen (this) coming,” he said.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for us to put this as a stake in the ground and proves that we can compete with the best teams.”

FFA announces Dolan Warren Awards 2016

April 01, 2016 By: Penny Category: W League

Last season's Julie Dolan medal winner Emily van Egmond and Johnny Warren medal winner Nathan Burns.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today announced that football will be the first major Australian sport to jointly name its most prestigious awards event in honour of two legendary female and male Australian footballers.

The joint awards night for the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League will be renamed the “Dolan Warren Awards 2016”, which will celebrate the Julie Dolan Medal and Johnny Warren Medal for the top players of the Westfield W-League and Hyundai A-League respectively.

Julie Dolan was the captain of the Westfield Matildas in their first ever international match against New Zealand in 1979. Julie was awarded the no. 1 cap for Australia’s international women representatives.

Johnny Warren was captain of the Caltex Socceroos and played in Australia’s first ever FIFA World Cup finals match against East Germany in 1974.

Fox Sports personalities Amy Duggan, a former Matilda, and Adam Peacock will co-host the Dolan Warren Awards 2016 which will be staged at Carriageworks in Sydney on Tuesday 26 April.


In another first, Fox Sports will broadcast the hour-long event live and exclusively from 7pm.

Westfield will once again be the official partner for the red carpet with all the glitz and glamour of the arrivals.

FFA CEO David Gallop said it was a significant step to rename the awards night.

“Australian football is proudly saying that the women’s game is not living in a niche, it’s central to our game and our future,” said Gallop.

“We have held joint awards for the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League for the past five years and as these nights have grown in stature and popularity, it’s timely to rebrand them as the Dolan Warren Awards.

“The renamed awards not only equally honour two legends of the game, Julie Dolan and the late Johnny Warren, but give equal recognition to the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League. That’s an important message to every boy and girl in the grassroots. Our game is for everyone and we are making a virtue of that.”

Gallop thanked broadcast partner Fox Sports for undertaking the live and exclusive coverage and Westfield as the official partner for the red carpet.

In addition to the Julie Dolan and Johnny Warren Medals, other awards to be presented on the night include: the NAB Young Footballer of the Year, Coach of the Year, Goalkeeper of the Year, Golden Boot, Goal of the Year and Referee of the Year.
