FULL TIME Kingborough Lions 2-3 Ulverstone

90′ SAVE! Massive save from Hay to deny Davis, she blasted a shot that looked destined for the net but Hay just reacted in time and got a hand to keep their lead.

86′ Hay smacks a clearance away before Davis can pounce a ball sitting in the 6 yard box. Ulverstone just holding on by the skin of their teeth.

85′ A corner to the back post falls to De Smit who drives her shot just past the post. Kingborough really pressing hard for an equaliser.

84′ Shot off! From the resulting corner, Iseil gets free and nods her header just wide.

83′ Shot on! Edwards with a ferocious drive that stings the palms of Hay, who tips it onto the cross bar before punching the rebound away from a lurking Davis.

80′ Shot off! Dadswell volleys first time from just outside the box but her powerful strike flies narrowly over the top.

79′ Shot off! Djakic lets fly from just outside the box but her shot curls wide of the far post.

77′ GOAL 3-2 Ulverstone take the lead as Consalvo places her penalty perfectly into the bottom right corner. 

76′ PENALTY! A corner gets swung in and a handball is spotted in the scrum.

74′ Dadswell takes off on a mazy run and threads a pass through to Davis but her shot is blocked by Blackwood-Beattie.

72′ Shot on! Consalvo does well to get in behind again and curls a shot but Gardner does well to get across and make a good save.

70′ Kingborough now having a good spell, they are turning the screws and putting the Ulverstone defence under the pump but they are holding up well under the pressure.   

66′ Shot on! Edwards curls a shot from outside the box but it’s a comfortable save.

60′ Ulverstone have been on top in the second half, they are doing the bulk of the attacking and have the Lions scrambling back in defence. 

59′ Courtney Wright bails out her keeper, sweeping behind to clear as three Ulverstone players were lurking. Gardner had been caught in possesion well outside her box, but Wright sees that no harm is done.

Sub- Kate Djakic is replaced by Shelby Aitken. Boerma it seems is injured and after a delay she is carried off for Finch.

54′ Shot off! The Lions nearly respond immediately, Watkins surges down the left, beating two defenders, storms into the box, drives to the by line and crosses it but the Ulverstone defence is on hand to see it away from a lurking Davis before Green’s follow up shot is blocked.

52′ GOAL! 2-2! Ulverstone score from a corner, and I don’t mean a cross got headed home, the corner taker ( I think it was Mitchell) has scored, curled it in and somehow it sneaks in at the near post. Didn’t seem like anyone else got a meaningful touch on it. 

50′ Almost an own goal! A free kick gets swung in and the deflection from Mckay just avoids crossing the line before going behind for a corner.

HALF TIME Kingborough 2-1 Ulverstone.

So the hosts lead 2-1 at the break here at the Den. They fired out of the blocks and before some spectators had even found their seats it was 2-0. Ulverstone recovered well though and grew into the game as the half progressed, they probably should have pulled it back to 2-2 but on balance of play, the Lions probably just shading things and deserve their lead. Davis and Tatton have looked lively up front while Watkins and Dadswell have looked tidy. Ulverstone have been well served by Consalvo who is hanging off the shoulder of the last defender and causing problems with her runs in behind. Plenty still to play for here, an enjoyable contest and one suspects there are more goals to come.  

44′ Shot off! Davis guides a shot just past the post from the middle of the box after some lovely play from Dadswell to thread it through to her.

35′ Shot off! Djakic misses a glorious chance that surely should have been the equaliser. Gardner will be sighing with relief after she fumbled a ball in the box, it fell to the feet of Djakic and with an empty net gaping she placed it past the post. Big let off for the Lions!

32′ Game has evened out after the Lions got the jump to begin with. It’s a pretty end to end game with both sides looking to play a nice passing game and attack each other. Davis has looked the most dangerous player on the pitch.

24′ Shot off! Consalvo races into the box and from a sharp angle she can’t quite direct her shot on target as it goes just past the upright.

23′ Shot off! Davis Volleys just wide of the post after some lovely build up play. Tatton showed super skills to beat a defender before laying off for Davis, who played it to Green who returned to Davis who directed her volley just past the post.

15′ GOAL! 2-1! Ulverstone pull one back as Consalvo lofts one home from just outside the box, spied the keeper slightly off her line and finessed it over the top and into the back of the net. Ulverstone right back in it!

8′ Shot on! Terrific leg save from Garnder, Phoebe Djakic had got in behind and drilled a bullet low to the keepers right but she does tremendously well to get a piece of it and guide it past the post

5′ GOAL! Make that 2-0! Again Ulverstone exposed at the back, big holes in the area and Laura Davis is on hand to sweep it home. What a start from the hosts. 

2′ GOAL 1-0 LIONS! A fast start here as Tatton slots home from close range.
