Watterson and NSW on fire at Women's Indoor National Championship

BATHURST’S Sarah Watterson has found the back of the net three times for NSW in their undefeated start to the Under 21 Women's Indoor National Championship in Goulburn.

NSW went through the pool stage unbeaten thanks to great performances against Queensland (8-0), Victoria (5-3), Western Australia (6-1) and the ACT (5-0).

Watterson’s personal highlight came in the tough win over Victoria, where her two goals in the space of six minutes helped NSW complete a comeback from a 3-0 deficit.

NSW scored four goals in the final six minutes to seize control of the match from Victoria in quick fashion.

“It’s going really well for us. We’ve just connected really well and having training the day before our first game really helped us. They’re a great team to play with,” Watterson said.

“The second half of the Victoria game was really good. I don’t know what happened there in that first half but after half-time we just started to click.

“The pace of the game is so quick but we’ve done a great job with our passing and that’s helped save our legs.”

We’ve just connected really well.

Watterson’s other goal came in the opening half of the match against Western Australia which helped take her team to a commanding 4-0 lead just before the break.
