Queens Park off to a flying start Round 1, Premier League, 2016

April 11, 2016 By: Penny Category: Competitions

Goals from Brooke Johnston and Nicole Campbell were enough for Queens Park to earn a 3-1 win over the Northern Redbacks in the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division fixture at Coker Park on Sunday.


Report by Adrian Klein

Queens Park proved to be all too much for the defending champions as costly mistakes in the seventh and 31st minutes saw them concede two goals in the first half.

Redbacks captain Shawn Billam said that her team’s first half performance wasn’t good enough.

“Our first half performance was not as good as it needed to be,” she said.

“We were a little bit slow off the blocks and the wind was pretty hard to play in truth.”

A handball inside the box allowed Queens Parks skipper Nicole Campbell to score from the spot in the seventh minute.

The home side were contesting the Redbacks defence with goalkeeper Lauren Blizard saving a one-on-one shot from Queens Park’s Rebecca Di Carlo.

Queens’ high pressure football paid off as Johnston intercepted a poor pass-back, taking it around Blizard to score against an open net.

The Redbacks still had hope with Renee Leota’s shot edging its way into the bottom right corner past goalkeeper Danelle Cornish in the 36th minute.

Queens Park coach Ben Anderton said that his side didn’t take advantage of the strong winds in the first half.

“Having the wind we should’ve taken more shots, so we didn’t really capitalise on that,” he said.

Queens Park continued to dominate possession in the second half having a string of shots but was unable to convert.

It took just over 30 minutes from the restart for Johnston to get her second after she received a low cross just outside the box, took a few touches and slotted the ball into the back of the net in the 78th minute.

Johnston almost got her third as she fired from long range when she saw the Redbacks goalkeeper out of position, but couldn’t keep it under the bar.

Anderton said that his side deserved win.

“We could’ve got a few more, but in saying that, the girls worked really hard and I’m happy to come away with the win.”

Matildas claim AFC no.1 ranking, move into world Top 5

For the first time since May 2010, the Asian Football Confederation as a new number one team with Australia claiming the position with a historic best world number 5 ranking.

Australia’s move up four places and into the world elite comes on the back of their strong performances at this month’s 2016 AFC Women’s Olympic Qualifiers.

Number 5 is Australia’s highest ranking since the FIFA Women’s World Rankings were introduced on 16 July 2003 and the highest ranking for an Australian national team.

During the tournament, the Matildas claimed four wins and one draw against AFC counterparts Japan, Vietnam, Korea Republic, DPR Korea and China.

As well as their highest ever world ranking, the Matildas have amassed their best ever points total of 2014 – beating their previous best of 1968.

The qualifiers saw Japan and DPR Korea, who had alternatively held the AFC no.1 spot since 25 March 2005, drop to second and third in the AFC, respectively.

Alongside Australia, China were the other big winners from the qualifiers  with the Rio bound Steel Roses gaining an incredible 65 points and moving up 5 places to number 12.

The rankings took into account matches from the Olympic Qualifiers for CONCACAF, UEFA, OFC and the AFC, 2016 Algarve Cup and the new SheBelieves Cup. While the top 3 of USA, Germany and France remained unchanged, with Japan’s fall, England moved up a place into fourth.

Other big moves in the Top 20 included Pia Sundhage’s Sweden rising two spots to sixth, while Norway falling to 11th, making room for Canada in the top ten. Meanwhile Switzerland also moved up a spot to 19th, courtesy of their 2-1 win over Norway.

The next FIFA Women’s World Ranking will be published on 24 June 2016.
