THE Mareeba United football club travelled to Stratford on the weekend and brought home some impressive results.

The ladies premier team clearly signalled their intensions this year with a thumping 9-0 win over the Dolphins and at this early stage sit at the summit of the table.

Vicki Owokran managed to bag five goals while Jeannae Kalinau also secured a hat trick with Samantha Cater rounding off a masterclass performance.

The Men’s premiers picked up their first win of the season with a return to form perfomance to get their season back on track after just one point from their first three games.

The early stages of the first half didn’t go to plan as the Dolphins went ahead after being awarded a penalty which was taken well by Joe Rusch.

The Bulls bounced back when Dylan Cummings struck a thunderbolt with his less favoured left foot to equal the score.

Darcy McCormack put the bulls in front but Stratford equalised soon after to set up a tantalising half hour which saw the bulls come to life.

Wayne Srhoj lobbed former Mareeba keeper Ronnie Leporati with a delicate header to put the bulls ahead and Darcy McCormack sealed the win with a glancing header as the bulls pick up a much needed 4-2 win.

Coach Ange Tatti said, “We really needed this win to get our season back on track, the boys put in an excellent performance but we need to keep up these types of performances against the better teams.”

In other results Mareeba Youth had a hiccup against Stratford playing out a 1-1 draw, the men’s premier reserves had a 4-0 win over the Dolphins.

The ladies reserves trounced Marlin Coast Rangers 6-0 while Remo Terranova’s under 15 to 17 played out a 3-3 draw.

On Friday night the Bulls second division defeated Leichhardt 3-2 while the third division got hammered 7-0.

This weekend the Bulls are at home on Sunday to Marlin Coast rangers.
