The three-and-a-half-month women’s indoor football season has ended for the women of the South Lääne County Football Club.

On Saturday, a bronze medal match of the People’s League was played in Jõgeva against the women of Jõgeva Wolves.
The Southerners were good again. The two women completed the subgroup phase in a similar way, finishing second in their group. The South West JK came in the top two of the strong five-member subgroup with four wins, two draws and two losses.

In the semi-finals, Jõgeva footballers lost 4: 8 to JK Voltale, and our women’s team lost 4: 5 to the winner of the second subgroup, SK Barca. So an exciting game was expected in the bronze match. This is how this game turned out. The goal shots of both women were equal, 13 in Jõgeva and 12 in South Jyväskylä. In any case, they were able to effectively end the attacks twice. According to our players, this time the South was in trouble at this stage. In total, a 0: 2 loss to the People’s League in the debut season meant a high fourth place.

You have to be completely satisfied with the hall season. The leaders of the women were the women players themselves. Registering players, training, compiling a competition calendar, organizing a home tournament was a big job. In addition, supporters were sought themselves. Two pairs of brand new forms of competition were purchased, and supporters of the races were found. Many thanks to the women for their administrative work and, of course, for their excellent play.

The following played for the South Lääne County football club during the season: Karin Mänd, Kristel Ojaste, Marjana Kuldsaar, Anna Luuk, Anni Ratas, Ann Meriste-White, Regle Kurnim, Maarja Jalakas, Elise Ojap, Siret Põldäär, Janet Kärp, Janne-Ly Siimon.

As many as six female players reached the goal. Of these, Anna Luuk scored eight goals and Regle Kurnim scored six goals. This was the first season of the South West JK, when our club is represented in a women’s league held under the auspices of the Estonian Football Association. A girls’ football group was established at the club in September 2008. Previously, the club has been successful in the Estonian Youth Championships. The U16 girls’ team won a bronze medal in the national championships in 2009.

On three more occasions, different girls ‘and girls’ teams have been included in the top six. Even in today’s women’s league, there are many former female players who once started playing football 14 years ago. Now the women are waiting for a holiday. However, preparations for the outdoor season of the folk league will begin soon.
