Round 7 Women’s State Premier League wrap
Report by Nathan Drudi
UWA-Nedlands 2 (Katie Schubert, Own Goal)
@ Celebration Park B
UWA-Nedlands have scored a convincing win over the NTC at Celebration Park on Sunday morning.
The NTC never troubled UWA-Nedlands apart from a 10-minute surge in the second half.
After leading 1-0 at half time, the UWA-Nedlands girls moved further ahead with an own goal coming off a Tash Whitby cross.
UWA-Nedlands dominated the game, hitting the post twice and missing some simple chances throughout the game.
The NTC take on East Fremantle next week, while UWA-Nedlands will have a week to recover drawing the bye.
Northern Redbacks 4 (Nicola Williams 2, Carol Howes, Jacquie Nellany)
Beckenham Angels 2 (Kris Antonic, Dani Calautti)
@ Celebration Park A
The top of the table clash between the Northern Redbacks and Beckenham Angels has not disappointed the hype that surrounded the game.
In what Northern Redbacks coach Tim said was a great spectacle for women’s soccer, the ladder leaders Beckenham went down in a classy game.
After leading 2-1 at half time, the Redbacks fell asleep in the second and allowed Beckenham to level before they awoke and pulled away to a 4-2 win.
Both sides missed chances that could have swung the game in the other direction, but the Redbacks steadied to run away two goal winners.
Balcatta 5 (Laura Turnbull 2, Kylie Chatto, Prue Cormick, Ashley Panaia)
East Fremantle 0
@ Wauhop Park
Balcatta has gone on a second half rampage at Wauhop Park on Sunday afternoon to leave East Fremantle scratching their heads.
After the game entered half time at 0-0, Balcatta came out firing, scoring five goals to none.
Everything clicked for the Balcatta side, and they saved the few chances that East Fremantle had.
Laura Turnbull scored her third goal in two weeks as Balcatta ran away easy victors.
East Fremantle challenge the NTC next week, while Balcatta take on the Northern Redbacks in what is set to be a cracker of a game.
