High scoring Panthers claim another win
FOOTBALL: The Nanango Panthers women's side is on track to repeat their 2017 season performance as they added another win to their tally on Saturday.
A break in the Football South Burnett season provided an opportunity for the Panthers to play a catch-up game against the Kingaroy Gunnettes with the Panthers claiming the win four goals to nil.
The Gunnettes fielded a team of eight and the Panthers played a reduced team of nine.
Coach of the Panthers Alan Downie is proud of his team's effort to maintain their undefeated streak from last season.
"Once you get that sort of title you like to hold onto it so it is always good to get a win,” he said.
The team is continuing to improve this season and Downie said having less players on the field, while not ideal, gives the players the opportunity to work on their skills which they can then apply in an 11 a side game.
"Their passing game was very good because they were allowed the time to put it all together nicely,” he said.
"The moves they put out together looked very good from the sideline and if they can just snap that up as the season goes on that would be very good.
"It certainly does give them time to use their skills with confidence butt we normally tried to do that at training and not in a game.”
Downie also coaches the Panthers men's side who took on the Barambah Bears.
The Bears defeated the Panthers - who are yet to win a game this season - 11 goals to two.
Games will resume next week following a two week break.
The Gunnettes will take on the Wests in Kingaroy at 4pm followed by the men's sides at 6pm.
The Panthers will host Barambah with the women playing at 1pm followed by the men at 3pm.
