Round 16 Bankwest Women’s State Premier League
A wrap on the weekend’s results.
Report by James Mooney
Northern Redbacks 10 (Renee Leaotta 4, Jacqueline Nellany 2, Carla Bennett, Carol Howes, Ashlee Bager, Rebecca Davis)
East Fremantle 0
@ Celebration Park
The Northern Redbacks took care of East Fremantle 10-0 at Celebration Park yesterday.
The score line tells the story as East Fremantle continue to struggle and when playing one of the league contenders these results happen.
The Redbacks took the game head on thanks to a four-goal bag from Renae Leotta
At half time the game was all but over with a six-nil score line.
With each win crucial between the Redbacks and Beckenham Angels, who continue to fight out for top place, it might not be as easy as expected with other clubs starting to raise the standard.
Next weeks the Redbacks take on the NTC while East Fremantle host Queens Park.
Queens Park SC 2 (Monique Gordon 2)
Balcatta SC 1
@ Coker Park
Queens Park defeated Balcatta 2-1 yesterday at Coker Park.
In a result that might have surprised a few at the start of the season, it may just be a late surge from Queens Park.
Balcatta who have been close behind the two league leaders with consistent results faced a Queens Park unit who have looked to hit their stride.
Monique Gordon opened the scoring in the first half after getting on the end of some quality play between the midfield.
It was almost two nil for Queens Park however the goal was disallowed.
Minutes later Balcatta struck back on the counter attack to level the scores, making it one-all at the half time break.
Queens Park didn’t let the disallowed goal unsettle them, as another linked play between the midfield allowed Monique Gordon to strike in her second goal.
Next week Queens Park travels to East Fremantle while Balcatta will host UWA-Nedlands.
Beckenham Angels 3 (Danielle Calautti, Andrea Preiato)
@ UWA Sports Park
Beckenham took all three points against UWA-Nedlands yesterday winning 3-0.
The score line does make the win look comfortable for the Angels, however it was anything but as UWA’s hard physical pressure saw a few Beckenham players come off injured.
Danielle Calautti opened the scoring for Beckenham in the opening 15 minutes, which was soon followed from a strike by Andrea Preartio on the half hour mark.
UWA although not having many scoring opportunities, did stick to their game plan with hard physical defensive pressure.
Prearto sealed the game off 15 minutes into the second half, where Beckenham played out the game three-nil winners.
Next week UWA travel to Balcatta while Beckenham takes the week off with the bye.
FW NTC had the bye this week.
