Last weekend saw the women’s team record their third straight win for the season, reserve grade run away with their first win and first grade robbed of some points that should have been on the ladder.

The Wingham Women’s side travelled to Lansdowne to take on the Lions on their home turf.

What looked to be a tough challenge ahead unveiled to be an easy one for the girls as they won 3-1.

Calypso Watson looks to be in hot form this season scoring another for her third straight game. Also contributing to the scoreboard were Amba Brown and Bec Beale with important goals.

The ladies will take on the Tuncurry Tigers this weekend at home, looking to continue their winning streak. It will prove to be a tough game for them.

In Premier League the Warriors took on the Old Bar Barbarians which saw a mixture of frowns and grins as the reserve grade boys recorded their first of many victories to come and first grade robbed of victory.

With an early goal from Nick Beacham reserve grade were in fine form dominating the pitch, although Old Bar struck not long after bringing it to 1-1.

After the half time break an own goal from Wingham put Old Bar in front. A change in positioning saw Chris Boyd moved to the front which proved to be a successful move as he put away two goals into the back of the net.

A goal from James Thompson sealed the deal as the reserve grade boys put their first points on the table.

What could be dubbed as the worst decision this season saw Wingham first grade robbed of a possible win.

The Warriors were winning 1-0 with an amazing free kick from Mitch Bevitt as the ball floated over the bus load of Old Bar players packed into the wall, and curled back down into the left hand side of the net.

However a foul in the box handed Old Bar a penalty shot which they put away quickly. The scores were level at 1-1 and a Wingham player brought down in his own box which should have been a yellow card to the Old Bar player, but the referee saw it as a foul from Wingham and gave Old Bar another penalty shot, which was almost saved but again put away by Old Bar.

The game ended in a 2-1 loss as the boys walked away stunned.

This weekend in Premier League we will be at home again taking on Port United, the under 18s will be taking on Taree Wildcats in their second round clash after receiving the bye in the first round.

All your support is very much appreciated and to assist us through the season please continue it to come and cheer us on at games of all age groups.
