Manly United too strong for toothless Tigers
Goals from Emily Minett and Claudia Cholakian saw Manly United grind their way to a 2-0 win over Northern Tigers on Sunday at North Turramurra.
Matildas striker Michelle Heyman didn’t feature for the home side, and it proved crucial.
Ladder leaders Manly were patient from the outset in testing conditions, and eventually were rewarded.
“I thought we thoroughly deserved to win,” jubilant United coach Chris Williams said.
“The Tigers are direct and love a battle.
“Credit to our players, we stuck to our passing game and Claudia (Cholakian) scored early to get us going.
“Overall it was another great squad performance and sets us up nicely for two very big weeks against (Sydney) University then Macarthur.”
