City Ladies Defeat Country In A Thriller!
In a game that went down to a penalty shootout after scores were locked at full-time, City won their very first game ever in the annual City v Country event in front of a good crowd at Lynwood Park on Saturday 28 April 2011. Country were all over City early and scored first. A couple of shots from City went wide before our very own Margot Widdup scored the equaliser. City dominated for much of the remaining period of the game but were unable to capitalise on some good play due the the good defensive efforts of the Country team. This led to a drawn 1-1 scoreline at full time before City won in a nail-biting penalty shootout where Chloe Lewis (another of our girls) saved two of the Country's shots. A tremendous spectacle and a good endorsement for Ladies soccer across Macarthur with both teams showing tremendous skill and determination. There wasn't weak player across the 32 representatives. Well done to all the players and their Coaches and Managers for putting on a tremendous game.
