Report by James Mooney

Northern Redbacks SC 4

Beckenham Angels SC 3 (Kirby Larsen, Lindsey Jobling, Katarina Jukic)

@ Celebration Park

The Northern Redbacks defeated league champions Beckenham Angels 4-3 yesterday at Celebration Park.

It was the perfect fixture to end the season on, although Beckenham had confirmed top place, the Redbacks and Beckenham were both this season’s benchmark teams.

The Redbacks came into the game with the hope of beating the Angels for the third time this season.

It was Beckenham who had a chance to jump ahead in the first minute of the game but solid defending from the Redbacks saw the chance cleared off the line.

The early miss for Beckenham saw the team drop down a couple of gears, as the Redbacks were able to put on some score line pressure.

The Redbacks took a 2-0 lead going into the half time break.

Beckenham finally got swinging with goals to Kirby Larsen and Lindsey Jobling pulling Beckenham back into the contest.

The Redbacks not to be flustered found another goal to extend their lead, however a goal from Beckenham’s Katarina Jukic soon made it three a piece.

It was to be the Redbacks day though who managed to find another goal near the end to see out the game 4-3 winners.

This will not be the last time these two teams face each other this year, as the Bankwest Women’s Cup Final between the two will be next Sunday October 7.
