The Kappa Women’s Super Cup Round of 16 continues this Saturday with United Park Eagles leading the charge for Wide Bay in the tournament.
The Wide Bay Premier League side will make the trek to Brisbane to do battle with National Premier Leagues Queensland Women’s side Logan Lightning.
The Eagles have been flying high in the WBPL having not lost a match and currently sit in second spot.
United Park Eagles Women’s Head Coach Jake Davis said the club are always pushing to achieve and entering the Kappa Women’s Super Cup was just another example of that.
“We as a club have always pushed our women to set the standard in the area and push for bigger games and bigger goals,” said Davis.
“When this cup came up it was definitely something we were interested in as a club and as a team.”
Davis expressed his and his young squad’s excitement about coming up against an NPL Women’s side like Logan commenting that his players were keen to test their skills against a side of this calibre.
“We know that the Brisbane leagues are a step above what we have in our local area here but I’m very excited because I’ve got a lot of young players that are capable of playing in that level so it will be good for them to test where they’re at,” he said.
“My centre-back and captain Madison Masterman-Smith is very good defensively and played at the Queensland Schoolgirls level for a couple of years.
“Then I have my vice-captain Emily Ryan who is in the middle of the park and has been [part of] our ladies program since I’ve been a part of it who is a good leader as well.
“Then I have a world-class player in Lucy Hamilton who is 15 years old, who is beyond her years in the middle of the park as well.”
