Macksville Stingers took on Bellingen Victory at home on Saturday in a North Coast Football women’s 2nd division match.
Macksville were keen and determined from kick-off, claiming a penalty just outside the 18 yard box with Dakota Hillery managing to get the ball in the net.
With beautiful defence by Laura Peisley and Dakota Hillery, Bellingen struggled to make any inroads. Macksville went back on attack with a corner kick taken by Jayde Melville, who curved it into the net.
But Bello lifted and responded with a goal from outside the box before the break, and added a second soon after the resumption to level the scores.
For the Stingers, Kirra Perry and Carolyn Blackadder showed great skills in the centre as well as Sarah Mander and Olivia Rogers in the defence.
Speedster Kayla Turner and Jaime Searle worked hard to maintain possession, while keeper Kate Single was superb.
The deadlock was finally broken when Jayde Melville put a corner onto the chest of Tazma Clifford who goaled.
