Oxley Vale Attunga goalkeeper Hanna Davis made the switch to up-front and delivered with five goals as the second-placed side hammered a luckless Kootingal 16-0.
Kootingal player coach Cassi Cutmore took on the tough task of goalkeeper for the clash, with the mentor quickly learning playing shot stopper to a rampant OVA was never going to be an easy task.
“Their speed and agility were unfortunately no match for our side this time around. It did not take long for our lack of subs to show our exhaustion,” she said.
Under the guidance of Joaquin Povea-Gonzalez the second half was somewhat more respectable for the Kougars.
“The team formed a strong defensive field structure which managed to hold out the endless shots on goal to a minimum,” Cutmore said.
Kootingal’s second side, Purple, had a far more successful weekend with a 13-0 win over Quirindi White.
Cutmore herself bagged a brace, while Chloe Goodwin scored two. Kerrie Brooke, Jamee Cook, Claire Sullivan and Jamie Campbell also found the card.
Their efforts were outshone however by that of Kim Kenny who bagged five to take her season tally to 19-goals.
“Like usual, on the field our friendship with Quirindi shone,” Cutmore said.
“Quirindi always finds a way of grounding us and helping us remember what the game is truly about.”
At Marius Street, North Companions White secured three points with a 9-0 win over Quirindi Blue.
“We controlled the ball and focused on our shape when defending,” coach Pat Warren said.
The match between North Companions Black and Tamworth is scheduled for 11am on Saturday 17 July at Johnson Field.
