Wolfe stars for Flames



THE North Coast Flames have ended their inaugural Women's Summer Soccer League campaign on a high note, downing Brisbane side The Gap 4-3 at Crozier Field in Lismore on Saturday.

Gypsy Hectl got the Flames away to a good start with an early goal, drilling a 20-metre shot that gave The Gap goalkeeper no chance.

Pressure from the Flames forced an own-goal from The Gap to double their lead soon after, before the Brisbane side hit back with a goal for a 2-1 half-time scoreline.

But the Flames put the result beyond doubt after the break thanks to two well-taken goals from 15-year-old midfielder Jessica Wolfe, who showed great maturity and has a big future ahead of her.

The Gap saved some pride with two late goals for a final scoreline of 4-3, giving the Flames fifth place in the competition.

The consistent Sophie Towner had another strong game for the Flames, with Abbey Moss also outstanding in defence.

The Gold Coast were crowned champions after a 2-1 win over Brisbane Lions in the final, with plans already afoot for an expanded competition next year.
