Hobart Zebras v University

It will be the weekend in which the Zebras receive their trophy as their reward for a season of utter dominance. Before that gets presented they will first have to account for University. The Bees had no game last week after the inclement weather hit Lightwood Park and forced a postponement. The Zebras did however and it was a game that typified their season. They were tested for long periods by a Taroona side who had their chances to win, but a composed Zebras defence kept them at bay and then when the game appeared destined to end 0-0, Danielle Kannegiesser bobs up and scores a winner in the 87th minute. They have just found a way to win these games all season long. With two winnable games to end the year, they are looking like they are going to go the entirety of 2017 undefeated, with just the one draw, which is hardly counts as a blemish. University have steadied as the season has gone on but their defensive record against the top sides means it is hard to see how they can be the side to stop that from happening.
