Denmark’s dominance of the women’s top soccer division has continued after their comprehensive cup final victory over Rovers at the North Road soccer grounds last Friday. Over the past decade Denmark have been the team to beat in women’s soccer and that was again the case in this season’s Great Southern Soccer Association women’s division one cup final. The powerhouse team claimed the league and cup double after another brilliant season in 2021. Denmark have now won four of the past six cup finals with their only blemish coming against Caledonians in 2016. They didn’t make the final in 2019 and the cup wasn’t played last season. However, they added another bit of silverware to their collection after a 4-0 win over Rovers. Denmark star Zara Whooley netted the first goal of the contest after working her way down the left side of the field and producing a powerful strike from just outside the box midway through the first half. Rovers keeper Kat McGeachy produced a strong save before a strike from Denmark’s Tayah Mastalerz soon after sailed just over the top of goals with the Rovers defence under all sorts of pressure. Mastalerz received a great through ball and she broke away from the defence and beat McGeachy one-on-one to put Denmark up by two goals. Whooley took a corner approaching half-time and after a scramble the ball took a deflection from a Rovers defender’s foot, with the own goal handing Denmark a decisive three-goal lead at the break. Rovers were again on the back foot early in the second half but McGeachy produced a great one-on-one save. Despite their lead Denmark continued to attack and Abby Carter hit the post before Iman Anderson slotted Denmark’s fourth out of congestion close to goal. Rovers tried hard to find a goal of their own but weren’t able to penetrate the tight Denmark defence. Denmark’s skilful play and passing was a class above in the cup triumph and Whooley was outstanding to be deservingly named best and fairest in the final. Lowana Winter was strong in defence providing plenty of drive, Kim Carter was terrific in midfield, and Abby Carter was also influential in the win. McGeachy was fantastic in goals for Rovers making several vital saves while Melina Franklin was solid along with Ant Jackson and Pat Hoveler.
