Redbacks clinch title with champagne performance

A polished display brimming with experience and class saw Northern Redbacks defeat a youthful Balcatta side 5-1 and claim the 2016 Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division championship.

Report by Paul. J Laverty

This was their second consecutive title and secured them the double following their State Cup triumph over Melville City.

“The girls have worked hard,” said proud Redbacks coach, Tim Hodgson.

“We were fairly ordinary at the start of the season and had to change our system but it’s just reward now.”

The win was never in doubt as the impressive Demi Vance smacked the crossbar early on just before she laid a perfect low ball onto Renee Leota’s path who converted with ease on 14 minutes.

Vance was again the provider moments later when her driving run and cross from the right was slotted home this time by Nadene Caldwell.

Vance was denied from point-blank range with a fine reflex save from Gabby Dal Busco in the Balcatta goal but got her reward for her industrious performance latching onto a Nicola Williams through-ball on 37 minutes and placing the ball beyond the keeper’s grasp.

Hopes of a second-half comeback were thwarted early on when swift link-up play between Leota and Carla Bennet sent Vance through once again and she repeated her cool finish.

The home side didn’t give up with Melanie Doeglas rattling the woodwork from a tight angle before Madisyn Olguin scrambled the ball over the line to give Balcatta hope.

They laid siege to the Redbacks goal with Olguin again testing keeper Kathleen Waycott with a rasping drive before Caitlin Doeglas struck the rebound agonisingly over.

It was too-little too-late, though, as the away side sealed the points and the title when Caldwell pounced on a slack back-pass and subsequent sliced clearance by Dal Busco to put the icing on the cake with her second strike.

Balcatta coach Andrew Di Carlo was keen to use his side’s second-half display as something to build on for next season.

“We’ve got a great group of girls, great culture and a solid foundation, and hopefully we can move on to bigger and better things next year.”

But he was keen to pay tribute to their championship-winning opponents.

“They’re definitely the benchmark of the competition.”

Soccer: Melville City women have mixed weekend in cup finals

September 15, 2016 By: Penny Category: Competitions

MELVILLE City enjoyed mixed results in the Football West Girl’s and Women’s Cup Finals yesterday with the Under-14s storming to victory over Joondalup City and the State League team slipping up against Northern Redbacks.

Melville supplied two of the six grand final contestants and it was the first time the girls and women’s cups shared the day out, with a 500 strong crows packing the sidelines at Grindleford Reserve in Balcatta.

The Melville Under-14s squad finished the season third on the First Division ladder behind cup opponents Joondalup City, but reversed its fortunes with a last-minute goal to secure the silverware 2-1; Sophie Patience and Mathilda Richards the goal scorers.

Fifth in the Premier State League, the Melville City senior squad was beaten 5-0 by league leaders Northern Redbacks.

The Redbacks boast an experienced arsenal of state and Perth Glory players and supplied five lessons in finishing to the young Melville side.

Stephanie Simmonds and Laura Waltman impressed for Melville while Australian School Girls standout Lucy Jerram was starved of the ball and had a quiet game by her standards.

Despite the result, senior coach Gabby Walker-Ortega said she could not be prouder of her squad’s performance this season.

“My girls range in age from 14 to 20 and we’re essentially a development squad playing in a high performance league,” she said.

“We finished runners-up in the Night Series competition and again in the Cup and we’ve been in the top four in the league for the entire season.

“No other team has been as consistent and I’ll always take consistency over silverware with a squad as young as this.”

Walker-Ortega conceded nerves likely played a role in the senior squad’s heavy Cup loss.

“It was a good learning experience for us, we were playing on a big stage against W-League players and even an Irish international,” she said.

“In high pressure matches experience will usually win out over youth and that’s what happened.

“We’ll take it and learn from it; the girls are obviously quite hurt but at their age you bounce back very quickly and as a squad they have a very bright future ahead of them.”

With one round left and a five point unreachable buffer, their last match against Melville City will be all about the battle for fourth place over NTC for Melville.

Redbacks are one of the most titled women’s teams in the history of women’s football in WA with the number of Night Series, Leagues and cups under their banner.

Let’s not forget their individual awards collecting this year with player of the State Cup (Vance) and top goal scorer for the league a tussle between Redback’s Leota and Beckenham’s Marianna Tabain.

How many titles is that Tim Hodgson?!

The Moes finished as Metropolitan Division One Winners after their 4-2 win over East Fremantle today.

Dynamos have a bye next week. But the 5 point buffer they achieved today is too much for Melville City to bridge in the last round.

Both teams are over ten points clear of their nearest rival. Melville take on Redbacks, who are currently third, at Celebration Park next Sunday at 11AM.

The title is good news for a club hoping to achieve State League status in 2017.
