Losing streak almost over for Energy after draw against Fury

A SIMPLE mistake on the edge of the box might have cost CQFC Energy a shock win, but new coach Ray Wood could only praise his team for their 2-2 draw against the Northern Fury, at Townsville.

The Energy's hugely improved performance from last weekend's 9-0 drubbing against the Sunshine Coast, and from the Energy's previous encounter with the Fury were positive signs the side were on the right track.

"It was a much better performance than last week. We had our strongest 11 which was a little different to last weekend, where I tinkered with the side, trying different players at different positions," Wood explained.

Earlier this season, the Energy suffered a 7-1 defeat to the Fury, and to turn that scoreline around to end up with a draw pleased the coach immensely.

Chris Geddes scored in the first half, giving the Energy an early advantage before the Fury levelled the scores 1-1 at halftime.

 

Geddes struck again in the second half, and the Energy maintained the lead until the Fury capitalised on an Energy error on the edge of their penalty area, which enabled Alex Read to find the back of the goal to level the game once more.

"We should have won this game. It was mostly a superb performance ... we dominated most parts of the game," Wood said.

New club captain Jacob Crowley led from the middle of the park, while the "star man of the night" was Jordan Miller who filled in for an absent Chris Swain at right back instead of playing in his usual position out wide on the right.

"We need to keep working hard - we have four sessions this week, which means more time on the pitch and more time to get used to me," Wood said.

The club has two new arrivals coming into the fold this over the next two weeks - from Gladstone and NSW - but Wood could not release their names them as the club were still confirming a few details.

CQFC play Redlands United next Saturday, at Rugby Park kicking off at 7pm.

RESULT:

Northern Fury 2 (Goals Matthew Richards, Alex Read) drew with CQFC 2 (Goals: Chris Geddes 2).
