Coach comment: “Last year we beat Central 4-0 in our first game of the season but we couldn’t keep up the intensity and passion in the last four games of the season and couldn’t make the playoff. This year we want to win the first game and reach our goal of making the playoff. We have a new team and we are starting to gel together.”
Fact: Captain Kate Loye is coming off an excellent winter season with Claudelands Rovers with the former age-group international midfielder claiming the NRFL Women’s Premier League Player of the Year award.
