Miners play leaders on home turf
IT'S the middle of the season for the Gympie Miners and they've clawed their way to a comfortable second on the ladder.
Tonight's 7pm home game against ladder number one Caboolture will be the team's first mid-season test.
The Miners have met Caboolture twice before with no success but manager Angela Williams says the girls are ready this time.
The team is in equal second with Maroochydore after a 4-1 win against Buderim on Friday and a win against Caboolture will see the two teams only one point apart.
Williams says the girls have started to get it together as a group and their co-operation last Friday is proof of that.
Striker Alexis Tramacchi was shuffled into midfield for the game, switching with the dependable Kylie Rayson.
Williams said the switch worked well and looked like a promising set-up for tonight too.
Kym Espin and 16-year-old Samantha Sutton had brilliant performances on Friday, as did goal-scorer Ella Flack, who was responsible for two goals.
Tramacchi, who scored a penalty shot after a hand-ball from a Buderim player, and Rayson again provided points with a goal apiece.
