Jukic double sinks East Fremantle

June 11, 2017 By: Penny Category: Competitions

Report by Tristan Wheeler

Katarina Jukic scored a double as Queens Park recorded a dominant victory against East Fremantle, continuing their unbeaten start to the season.

Queens Park coach Ben Anderton was pleased that his side had used their pre-season momentum in the fixture.

“We were in the right places at the right times, unfortunately we weren’t as clinical as we had been in the past.

“All I ask from the girls is to run non-stop, 90 minutes, just keep running and put them under pressure.”

Queens Park got off to a fast start early, utilising the wings to put East Fremantle under pressure.

East Fremantle goalkeeper Leniana Masibaka missed a chance to clear a Tia Stevehill cross in the 8th minute, allowing Jukic to open the scoring.

Jukic went close again in the 36th minute, but her shot was saved by Masibaka. Stevehill gathered the rebound, but only managed to hit the side netting with the follow up shot.

East Fremantle’s troubles with the aerial ball continued. A Queen’s park free kick bounced awkwardly and landed at the feet of Jukic who rattled her shot against the bar.

Five minutes into the second half, Jukic took her season tally to five goals, latching onto a corner at the back post to double Queens Park’s advantage.

Queens Park continued to dominate and won a free kick in a promising position as Stevehill went close, her curling effort tipped over the bar by Masibaka.

Despite the loss, East Fremantle assistant coach Luke Nezi was proud of his side’s performance.

“Today we played really well, we’re playing the top side in the league, a very organised team.

“Our players were getting a little bit tired towards the end, we need to work on our fitness, but it’s early in the season.”

The victory takes Queens Park to the top of the table with six points from two games while East Fremantle remains winless.

Jukic lights up the night with hat-trick

May 24, 2017 By: Penny Category: Competitions

Report by Peter Simcox

Queens Park have opened their Bankwest Women’s State Premier League campaign with a 5-1 win against Beckenham Angels at Mills Park on Thursday evening.

Former Beckenham and Perth Glory striker Katarina Jukic was the hero for Queens Park bagging a hat-trick, with Sadie Lawrence and Tia Stonehill also getting on the score sheet.

Jukic said it was good to start the season with a win and continue the momentum of winning the Night Series.

“Sadie (Lawrence) and I got some great service tonight and we managed to put them away.

“We didn’t play our best in the Night Series, but we won the final and it’s good to keep that momentum going tonight. We probably need a few more game to gel, but the signs are good.”

Queens Park Coach Ben Anderton said it was a pleasing performance, and they took their chances well.

“It was a slow start to the game but we lifted and when we introduced Shannon (May), we took control,” he said.

“She gave us some composure and we managed to re-cycle the ball better and got Katarina, Sadie and Tia into good positions up front and they took their goals well.”

The visitors dominated early and were ahead on 11 minutes. Natasha Rigby’s corner picked out Jukic who headed home from close-range.

Beckenham hit back and when Kim Thiess’ corner wasn’t dealt with, Andrea Priato’s shot was saved by Danelle Cornish.

Queens Park created the better chances and were rewarded on 37 minutes with a second goal. A great through ball sent Jukic in on goal who finished clinically.

The Beckenham shot stopper was keeping her side in the game and stood tall to deny Jukic a hat-trick moments later.

However there was nothing she could do when Queens Park added a third on the stroke of half time. A defensive mix up let in Stonehill, and the pacey striker made no mistake.

The home side made a great start to the second half and they pulled one back in the opening minute. Valenti found space on the edge of the penalty area and her long-range shot gave Cornish no chance.

Two minutes later Queens Park regained their three goal margin. Stonehill made space down the left and crossed in to the penalty area with Jukic sliding in at the back post to complete her hat-trick.

Queens Park made it 5-1 on the hour as Lawrence heading home Jamie-Lee Gale’s corner.

With Shannon May pulling the strings in the middle of the park Queens Park continued to press. Jukic’s curling shot flashed wide of the target, before Lawrence saw her shot cleared off the line by Rhian Mears.

Next week Queens Park host East Fremantle at Coker Park, while Beckenham Angels travel to Jubilee Reserve to take on Bassendean Caledonians.

Queens Park title-tilt grinds to a halt

Queens Park’s championship aspirations received a body-blow as they were held to a frustrating goalless draw against Balcatta at Grindleford Reserve on Sunday.

Report by Paul J. Laverty

On a pitch which held up well despite a full weekend of rain and football, the first half failed to ignite, dishing up pace and physicality but with both defences coming out on top.

In the second period Queens Park lifted peppering the home goal with shots, and Balcatta had their keeper Gabby Dal Busco to thank for keeping the scores level with a virtuoso performance.

In the 62nd minute she bravely saved at the feet of Nicole Campbell when the Queens Park captain looked set to score, and then followed this up with two lightning-quick close-range stops within a minute, the first from Katie Schubert and the second again from Campbell.

On 73 minutes Queens Park’s Natasha Rigby made a surging run down the right and her effort finally beat Dal Busco only to hit a post.

Moments later Campbell held her head in her hands when she rattled the ball over the bar from just 12m following a superb cut-back from Stacey Learmont.

Balcatta were mostly limited to speculative long-range efforts but could have pinched it right at the end when Chelsea Winchcombe had the ball nicked from her toe following a dazzling solo-run through the Queens Park defence, before Ash Panaia sliced the resulting corner just past a post.

In the end both teams had to settle for a share of the spoils with Queens Park falling further off the pace in the race for the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier title.

“We had a couple of players out through injury but we should have got the job done,” said a frustrated Queens Park coach, Ben Anderton.

“We controlled the tempo, the possession, but it was just one of those days it wouldn’t go in.”

For Balcatta this was a confidence-boosting result, which the young side vow to use as a benchmark for the 2017 season.

“Everybody’s pretty stoked,” said captain Chelsea Winchcombe.

“We worked as a team. We’ve had the ability all season and we just pulled it together today.”

Walsh the hero as Redbacks down the Angels

Northern Redbacks extended their lead at the top of the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division with a hard fought 3-1 win against their nearest challengers Beckenham Angels at Celebration Park on Sunday.

Report by Peter Simcox

Speedy striker Larissa Walsh was the hero, bagging a hat trick, while Shannon May’s goal for the Angels was a stunning long-range shot, but it was in vain.

Redbacks Coach Tim Hodgson said it was a great performance, especially being without a number of key players.

“We had three of our top players missing today and we knew it would be a tough game, as they always are against Beckenham,” he said. “But we knew what was at stake and it was important to get the result.”

“Today is a good result but there are still five games to go and we can’t become complacent.

“We said along we want to have it in our hands and not really on other people, and today’s win gives a little buffer but we’re not counting our chickens just yet and we know there is a long way to go.”

Hodgson said Walsh’s pace caused the Angels problems.

“Larissa was great for us today, we knew her pace would cause problems and we were under a lot of pressure in the second half, it was real backs to the wall from our side,” he said.

“But we used Larissa as an outlet up front and it’s something we’ve worked on, and today it worked.”

Walsh, who turns 22 on Wednesday, celebrated her birthday early and said it was a good team performance.

“We worked extremely hard today, got our formation sorted and we got what we wanted and that was three points,” she said.

“We were missing a few players today but it showed we have players who can step up and put in a good performance.

“Tim wanted to use me up front with my pace and it worked and I was happy to score the goals in the top of the table clash, which moves us four points clear at the top.

“But as Tim reminds us, we still have five games left, so we still need to play hard for the rest of the season.”

At kick off only two points separated the sides on the table and the visitors had keeper Rhian Mears to thank after she pulled off a double save to deny Walsh early.

But Beckenham hit back, Katie Holtham’s long-range shot was saved by Kathleen Waycott, before Ella Mastrantonio snap shot flashed over the top.

The visitors were on top but they almost conceded on the half hour. Jessica Wheatman’s free kick was turned around the post by the alert Mears.

Walsh’s pace was causing Beckenham problems and on 34 minutes she opened the scoring. A long ball over the top sent the striker racing clear and she finished low past Mears.

Beckenham almost hit back immediately. The lively Katarina Jukic raced clear and beat the keeper to the ball but from a tight angle her curling shot crashed off the post and away to safety.

The Redbacks had their keeper to thank for keeping the lead in the shadows of half time, Waycott saving well to thwart May.

Beckenham made the perfect start to the second half and levelled nine minutes in. May picked the ball up 20m from goal and her stunning shot flew into the top corner of the net giving Waycott no chance.

The goal lifted the visitors and Holtham’s shot on the turn whistled just wide of the target before Jamie Lee-Gale shot straight at Waycott.

The home side were hanging on, and they had Emily Dunn to thank for keeping them level, the defender superbly clearing Holtham’s shot off the line.

Holtham was a real handful and she went close again on 80 minutes, firing over from the edge of the penalty area before Waycott was out bravely to save at the strikers’ feet.

But against the run of play the Redbacks regained the lead seven minutes from time. A long ball over the top sent Walsh racing clear again and she finished clinically past Mears.

Walsh was at it again three minutes later to complete her hat-trick and seal the points. It was a case of déjà vu, this time racing down the left before firing home from 10m, to send the Redbacks four points clear at the top of the table.

Redbacks see off Queens Park challenge

Football West News

Monday, August 01, 2016

A clinical display by Northern Redbacks saw the title-holders take a significant step towards retaining their Bankwest Women’s State League Premier League crown with a 2-0 away win at Coker Park.

Report by Paul J. Laverty

An early goal in each half, the first a volley by Nadene Caldwell and the second a tidy finish by Renee Leota, brought title-challengers Queens Park back down-to-earth with a bump after their impressive victory at home to Beckenham Angels last week.

Redbacks coach Tim Hodgson was delighted with the victory.

“They’d beaten us twice already this year but we were more disciplined than in the past,” he said. “The focus was there for the whole 90 minutes.”

The top-of-the-table clash failed to spark into a pulsating encounter with the Redbacks coming out on top in almost every department.

The result could have been even more convincing had Lauren Riley not saw her first-half pile driver brilliantly tipped onto the bar by Danelle Cornish in the Queens Park goal.

For the home-side it was a day to forget with in-form forward Brooke Johnston failing to threaten the Redbacks’ rearguard. She was reduced to hopeful shots from outside the box which caused little trouble for shot-stopper Kathleen Waycott.

Falling four points adrift of top spot and seeing their league fate taken out of their own hands, Queens Park coach Ben Anderton was frustrated with his side’s display both with and without the ball.

“We showed them too much respect,” he said. “We let them play the ball too much and didn’t pressure.”

Hodgson’s Redbacks have another crunch game next week against Beckenham whose win against the National Training Centre side sees them leap above Queens Park into second place, just two points off Northern Redbacks.

“It’s certainly going to be very tough, we’ve been strong rivals for years” said Hodgson, ahead of his club’s clash with Beckenham.

“We need to put in a performance like we did today and maybe a little bit more.”

Johnston back with a bang for Queens Park

August 03, 2016 By: Penny Category: Competitions

Football West News

Monday, July 25, 2016

Brooke Johnston was the star-of-the-show as her second-half hat-trick helped Queens Park thump Beckenham Angels 3-0 and leapfrog them into second-place in the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division.

Report by Paul J. Laverty

The Angels had no answer to Johnston’s movement and power as she returned to the side following an eight-week injury lay-off to underline Queens Park’s credentials.

“I just wanted to try and do my bit for the team,” Johnston said. “To grab a hat-trick is a dream.”

On a day boasting near-perfect conditions for football there was little between the two sides during the first period with both defences coming out on top.

Johnston was working the Beckenham back-line hard but finding their keeper Stacey Cavill in fine form, as did teammate Stacey Learmont when her cross-turned-shot was expertly tipped onto the bar by the shot-stopper.

Beckenham also enjoyed periods of pressure with Jamie-Lee Gale unlucky on two occasions when she blasted over the bar from close range and then rounded Queens’ goalie Danelle Cornish only to drag the ball too far and out for a goal kick.

In the second-half the game came alive when Queens Park won a corner and Beckenham failed to clear their lines allowing Johnston to smash home.

The home-side should have gone further ahead soon after when Johnston turned provider and played in Learmont, who dragged her shot wide.

Queens Park then received a wake-up call when Janelle St. Pierre picked out Eleanor Bates at the back post only to see her looping shot go over the bar.

Queens Park regained control with Johnston nodding home from six metres following Courtney Owen’s corner to make it 2-0.

Beckenham were running out of legs and ideas, and had little answer to the energy and invention of Queens Park.

The Coker Park side almost sealed the points when Learmont neatly turned her marker on the edge of the box only to hit the ball the wrong side of the post.

However, she made amends moments later when her pass cut open the Beckenham defence allowing Johnston to coolly slot home for her third and secure the points.

Beckenham boss Jason Washington-King was pragmatic after the loss.

“They just played great, we didn’t,” said Washington-King, whose team plays the National Training Centre and Northern Redbacks in their next two games.

“It’s a tough competition… We can’t worry about this game, we’ve just got to move on.”

Queens Park coach Ben Anderton was also keen to look forward to next week’s top-of-the-table clash with Northern Redbacks.

“We’ll take confidence from this, we’ve had good success against Redbacks in our last two meets,” Anderton said.

“We know it’s going to be tough, but we’ll just keep working all week. It’s anyone’s league at the moment.”
