Devils kick on

THINGS are devilishly good in the ladies soccer competition, aafter Bega defeated Pambula 9-0 last weekend. 

“It was a great game,” Bega Devils club spokesperson Kerryn Constable said. 

“Pambula are pretty awesome to play, there’s never any nastiness in the game.

“The [Bega] team is playing pretty well considering we’ve had a few injuries.”

A few of the Devils are nursing injuries that have seen them out of the competition for the season, including Constable’s daughter Nicole who is undergoing treatment for a dislocated knee. 

The team is running on 11-12 players due to injuries to the squad, and have some under 16s on the bench.

Last week they only had one sub, which Constable said was “just enough”, and ideally there would be two. 

The Devils have a bye this weekend, but that hasn’t stopped them training as they have already had a session this week. 

Constable said the girls may get together for an extra training session on the weekend, or they might go and support the men’s group as that is what they usually do.

On August 17 the Devils have a makeup game against Tathra, which will be the last match of the season before the semi-finals.

“We should do well, we usually do well against Tathra,” Constable said. 

“They are also a great team to play.”

The Devils are currently second on the ladder, so Constable said even if Tathra does manage to beat them she doesn’t think it would have any effect on them for the finals.

“We’re keen for finals, we’re going in positive even though we’ve lost a few decent players,” she said. 

“But bring it on we say!”

In the first grade comp the undefeated men have wrapped up the premiership, and coach Ross Jones said some key players will be rested this week to allow them to get over niggling injuries.
