Knights in promising start
THE Ipswich Knights women's Capital 1 team has got off to a terrific start in their first fixture of the season defeating Caboolture 3-1.
Krystle Ninnes opened her scoring account well with two goals in the seventh and 81st minutes.
Stevie Whisson also scored just before half time.
Captain Amanda Toby was impressed by the team's performance considering the conditions.
"The Caboolture girls and the heat made it a really tough opening game for us but we managed to combine well in parts and take away the three points,'' Toby said.
"It's a promising start to the season especially when we can see that there is definitely room for us to improve.
"All the girls did well under such tough conditions.''
Toby praised division 3 players Clare Parkes and Teagan MacDonald, who stepped up for some of injured players.
The Knights take on a strong competitor in Moggill on Friday night (8.30pm) at Bundamba.
