So a similar game to their Summer Cup clash, Zebras clearly the superior team but Vanderniet in goals making life hard for them. A deserved three points and a great start to the year for the Zebras. Full Report to follow.

Full Time: Hobart Zebras 3-0 Clarence

84′ GOAL! 3-0! Nichols again, has had quite the impact off the bench! She gets on the end of a beautiful through ball from O’Brien, cuts inside onto her right and around Holmes before placing into the bottom corner of the net!

74′ GOAL! Zoe Nichols comes off the bench and scores! She quickly takes a free kick and puts it in the back of the net before the Clarence defence or keeper was set. Bit of controversy about that given the ref had to check with the linesman to award the free kick and everyone thought it was an offside the other way. Points for ingenuity but Clarence have every right to be aggrieved.  

65′ Zebras have come close to adding to their lead on a couple of occasions but Vanderniet has done well to deny them. Zebras are firmly on top in this game and have had Clarence pinned back deep but the Dixon/Holmes combination have defended stoutly for the Reds. They came close through Clark with their only real  chance of the contest and while it remains 1-0 they are still every chance of snagging a point. Zebras need to start taking their chances and kill this contest , they should have put this game to rest by now.

HALF TIME: Hobart Zebras 1-0 Clarence

43′ GOAL! 1-0 Zebras! Jess Harris does well to control a cross played into the box, she brings it down from her chest and slides a shot through the legs of Vanderniet. It took a piece of her ankle, but not enough to slow it down as she despairingly chased it back to the line. Have to say it was a deserved goal for the Zebras!

20′ Pretty even start to the game though Zebras have had the best couple of chances. Vanderniet did superbly to deny Harris from a one on one and DK blasted one over the top from a corner. Clarence have had the ball in some promising areas but have been unable to find a way through Undy and Nellis.

1′ Kick off. The Super League season is underway.

Welcome to KGV for the first game of the PFD Women’s Super League season as Hobart Zebras take on Clarence United. Apologies in advance if the updates are less frquent, got to juggle this with commentary. Will post a more in depth analysis at half time. Zebras will enter this one as the red hot favourites but Clarence can be a tough nut to crack and if they can hold out and grab something on the counter it should be a cracking game.
