A wrap on the weekend’s results.

Report by James Mooney

FW NTC 17’s 0

Queens Park SC 4 (Monique Gordon 2, Nicole Campbell, Penelope Clayton)

@ Celebration Park

Queens Park continued their spell of good form at the tail end of the season, defeating FW NTC 17’s 4-0.

It was the first half that made the difference with all four goals coming in the first 45 minutes.

The same names continue to pop up in the goal scoring list each week, with this week being no different.

Goals to Monique Gordon, Nicole Campbell and Penelope Clayton all contributed to Queens Park’s win.

The win has now seen Queens Park jump into third position after UWA-Nedlands and Balcatta dropped points this round.

With two games to go the battle for first and second place continues while positions three to five are also yet to be decided.

Next week the NTC travel to Balcatta while Queens Park take on UWA-Nedlands.

Northern Redbacks SC 3

UWA-Nedlands FC 2

@ Celebration Park

 A last minute free kick has given the Northern Redbacks a 3-2 win over UWA-Nedlands.

The Redbacks were playing for a chance at top spot while UWA was seeking third as both sides dished out a special performance.

The first half saw both sides go into the break with a goal apiece.

It was then the Redbacks who took the lead early into the second half, which was soon followed by a penalty awarded to UWA, making it two all.

UWA pushed the Redbacks hard, as both sides fought for the winning goal.

In the game’s final moments the Redbacks were awarded a free kick, which was converted to snatch the victory.

The last minute goal gives the Redbacks a mathematical chance of finishing on top of the league, however it all depends on the results of Beckenham Angels.

UWA can still finish third however will have to battle with Queens Park and Balcatta in the final two weeks, which will make for strong contest.

Next week the Redbacks have the bye ahead of their show down with Beckenham while UWA take on Queens Park.

Balcatta SC 0

Beckenham Angels SC 5 (Danielle Calautti 4, Kirby Larsen)

@ Grindleford Reserve

Beckenham hold their lead on top of the ladder after a 5-0 over Balcatta.

The first half saw both sides battle in an even contest with Beckenham’s Danielle Calautti the difference with two goals in the half.

The second half saw Balcatta continue to try and find a way back into the game until Kirby Larsen made it three at the mid point of the second half.

Another goal scoring spell from Calautti with two goals in as many minutes saw her claim for the golden boot essentially sealed, along with the game’s result.

The score line failed to acknowledge Balcatta’s effort with a depleted squad through injury while Beckenham continue their excellent form over the season.

The win now puts Beckenham in prime position to finish the league as champions.

Next week Balcatta face the NTC while Beckenham take on East Fremantle.

East Fremantle had the bye this weekend
