CELEBRATING: Wauchope Thunder women won the minor semi-finals against Coffs Harbour Snappers and are through to the finals.

The Wauchope Thunder women are celebrating, after winning the minor semi-finals against Coffs Harbour Snappers women’s team last Sunday.

The full-time score was 24:17.

That takes them through to the finals against Hastings Valley Vikings, to be played at Coffs Harbour on Saturday at 9am.

If they win this weekend, they go through to the grand final against Port Macquarie Pirates women’s team.

Wauchope president, Aaron Robinson was thrilled with the result.

“I’m delighted with their performance and very proud of the women and the effort they have put in this year to make it to where they are,” he said.

Coach Patrick Bowen said the finals are in a 10s format.

“We haven’t played 10s we had been playing 7s all year.  We only had 10 girls so it was tough,” he said.

“Stephanie Ostler had a really good game and Wendy Wilkins had stand-out games.

“There was a lot of end-to-end stuff especially from Coffs Harbour and they were giving us a bit of grief but we were going try for try for a lot of it.

“We are really looking forward to play some more football.  We have a few more players come back from work commitments so we will have a stronger team,” he added.

The coach said the Thunder women are getting more comfortable with the 10s format, so hopefully that will pay dividends.
