Title-chasing Hills United FC warmed up for this weekend’s clash against Marconi Stallions with a 6-0 hiding of Mt Druitt Town Rangers in the FNSW League One Women’s Football Championships.
Classy striker Imogen Lane starred with a superb hat-trick to have Hulls United 5-0 in the first half at Blacktown City Sports Centre on Sunday, July 10.
Hills United were on fire from the kick off after having the previous weekend off and rounded off the scoring with a brace from Annie Halls, and Ellen Berios. The Hills are now in second place on 52 points from 17 wins, two losses and one draw, after having an incredible run of victories.
Their only losses have come at the hands of Northbridge Bulls on June 5, and table leaders Gladesville Ravens on June 12, both narrow 1-0 defeats. Since those two hiccups, the Hills women have been back to their best.
The Hills United FC team will host Marconi Stallions at Bella Vista Public School on Sunday, July 17, at 3.45pm. While the hosts’ striking power was on display against the Rangers, Marconi have been cooling their heels in frustration after their last two games were washed out.
Hills United FC coach Alan Tasses is hoping they can build on their form of the last game and keep the pressure on league leaders Gladesville Ravens (55 points from 21 matches). Hills have a game in hand though.
Marconi should find it hard to compete against the inform Hills side who are raring to overtake the Ravens and win the premiership in their debut season.
