All of the action is the first half was one half mostly as Sutherland Shire FA had wave after wave of attack and they had their second soon after.

A solo effort from Raegan Deeley started off her bag of goals this afternoon. She confidently strode through the Southern Branch midfield before placing a shot

The third started from a mazy to the by-line from a Shire player who curved a perfect pass into the path of Danielle Wise to prod into the net for 3-nil

Wise turned provider for the fourth goal as she set up Deeley for her second goal of the afternoon. Once again it was bended across the box and Deeley was there to rile into the net for 4-nil.

Despite a rampant Sutherland Shire FA, Southern Branch FC had their chances to get on the scoreboard in the first half. Lexi Carter was found at the top of the box after some pressing from the visitors but she blazed an effort over.

Soon Sutherland Shire FA resumed their dominance with two more goals just before the break to make it a 6 goal first half – Jessica Ellis waltzed into the box before her parried shot created a hat-trick for Deeley.

Deeley capped off her first half performance with a fourth goal. She was slightly fortunate as the ball fell to her in the box but she did what good strikers do and finished well for a 6-nil half-time lead.

For a majority of the second half it was quite even as both sides traded goals in the early portion of the half.

Jordan Baker has been on fire thus far this season and she couldn’t resist getting herself involved in the scoring with a second half hat-trick to blow out the scoreline to 9-1. Her best was a powerful effort that beat Sophie Emery at her near post.

For Southern Branch FC it wasn’t all doom and gloom as they competed well through the contest and scored one goal themselves. Brittany Anderson took her goal very nicely to make it 7-1 in the 66th minute.
