Women's Premier League win to Umina

Reigning champions Umina defeated Killarney, 5-2, in round six of Women's Premier League soccer played a Edsaac on Sunday, May 7.

Umina took the opening goal.

Trying to play straight out of the back, a Killarney defender played the ball straight into Isabella DeMeyer who finished into the bottom right corner to give Umina an early 1-0 lead.

Umina continued to put pressure on Killarney and were able to extend their lead to 3-0, scoring both goals from a corner.

Umina started the second half with some fantastic play as Hannah Batten rounded the keeper and hit her shot off-target, but Chelsea Campbell was able to guide it in at the back post.

Killarney received a goal when a foul in the box saw them awarded a penalty.

Two minutes later Killarney were on the scoresheet again as Tamara Hanlon grabbed her first goal of the year.

Umina's fifth and final goal of the evening came through a Killarney own goal, as the E-Gals picked up a crucial win to hold their fourth-place spot on the ladder.

In the same round, Kincumber defeated Southern and Ettalong, 1-0

Despite dominating the attack in the first 20 minutes, the Roos struggled to find that final pass that would lead to a goal-scoring opportunity.

Kincumber's Helaina Wellington was very strong in attack, making numerous strong runs down the right and delivering some beautiful cross balls but a spirited Southern and Ettalong outfit thwarted everything the Roos threw at them.

During the first half, the Roos were unlucky not to have registered a couple of goals, but with neither side unable to break the deadlock the score remained locked at 0-0 at halftime.

The second half was more of the same as both teams lifted, keen to secure a vital win.

Fresh legs saw the Roos mount frequent attacks into Southern and Ettalong territory, but they were holding on.

It looked like it was just not Kincumber's day.

Then, with 20 seconds remaining, Emily Smith shot into the clear with the ball at her feet to slot the winning goal calmly and skilfully, a superb effort to give her side all three points and their second win of the year.

Match official was Graeme Gurr.
