The U16 Div 1 Girls were fired up to take on 2nd placed UQFC last Friday night under the lights with the Football Brisbane TV crew on hand to record the proceedings.
They shot out of the blocks early and showed their class with two well-worked team goals in the first 25 mins. Both came from great passing and were finished off with tap-ins in front of goal.
After that, it was a tough slog as UQ piled on the pressure in search of a way back into the game. UQ got a goal back before half time and it was a tough end-to-end game from then on.
Great work from TGFC to keep the skillful, fast UQ girls at bay for the first 40 mins of the second half. Then great pressure to win the ball back in midfield created an opportunity which was brilliantly finished from distance to put The Gap up 3-1 and take the wind out of the sails of the UQ girls.
A fantastic game played in good spirits by both teams with a great result on the road for The Gap.
