Miners try to regroup

LOSING 3-1 to Caboolture Tuesday night didn’t deter the Gympie women’s Miners ahead of their game last night against Kawana at home.

Team manager Angela Williams said the Gympie girls were keen to put the loss behind them and replace it with a more pleasant memory.

“Caboolture was a much older and more experienced side,” she said.

“They had more experience and three Sunshine Coast Fire players, including their keeper.”

The additional fire power took its toll on Gympie as Caboolture demonstrated it had an answer for everything the Miners threw at them.

A couple of near-misses at goal also didn’t help the situation for Gympie.

At half time, Gympie trailed 2-1 but Caboolture put the result out of reach in the fifth minute of the second half with a brilliantly executed goal.

The Gympie side was due to hit the One Mile Ovals last night at 7pm in their second home game of the new season.

“Hopefully there will be no surprises with more Sunshine Coast Fire players,” Williams said.
