In the end, a close and hard fought game finished 1-1. The Coach of Racing G, Tim Gray, lamenting missed opportunities as his side pressed for a win late in the second half.
Meatworks-4 v Pearlers-3 (6:15pm)
Meatworks Debutant Jasmine Angus proved the difference finishing the match with a hatrick under her belt. The win will see Meatworks move to the top of the table and Pearlers relegated to last spot. After only two rounds however, with new team combinations still working each other out, this trend is unlikely to be true of the remainder of the season.
Racing G-3 v Broome City-3 (7:40pm)
This high scoring affair will be remembered for the goals that were not scored as much as those that were. The end result read 3-3 but each side could have easily scored twice that number as both goals were peppered throughout the second half. Both team will probably be satisfied to walk away with a point, but in what is likely to be a closely contested women’s competition, competition points will be at a premium in the run towards the finals.
