10′ Shot on! Price curls one from range that is comfortably caught by Mercuri.

2′ GOAL! 1-0 Zebras! An own goal against Darby Randall, Sanders smashed one back across the face of goal and it deflects in.

The final game of the triple header and last of today’s four quarter finals will pit Hobart Zebras up against Clarence. Zebras were comfortable winners the last time they met and have looked the better side in the NPL so far but the cup can be a great leveller and realistically it’s a side like Clarence’s best chance of silverware so they will be well and truly up for the contest. If they can find a way to stop the set piece prowess of the Zebras, they then need to find a way through the NPL’s tighest defence. A tough ask, can do that do it? Or will Zebras book that final place in the Semi Finals? Follow Live from 5:30pm to find out!
