Full-Time Launceston City 5-3 Olympia Warriors. This result sends city through to the semi-finals.

90′ Goal, Fagan has four, she played in down the right, drops her shoulder and rounds the keeper.

89′ OLW have a free kick from 30 yards out after Storay fouls.

87′ Goal Fagan from two yards, Bygrave puts in a lovely cross and Fagan makes no mistake. 

86′ It’s hands in faces stuff here as E.Hernyk sprays wide.

5 to go, it could go either way. City looks lethal on the counter and Olympia are playing well.We could have extra time here. 

The city girls have done a lot of closing down and pressing Olympia but they are starting to tire which is allowing Olympia to zip the ball around in city’s third.

83′ City have retreated into their half which is allowing Olympia to push numbers forward.

73′ Crawford from distance but her effort is over the bar and out for a goal kick.

67′ Penalty to (OLW), and it’s saved, great strong wrists from city’s no 1 as she keeps out a bottom left-hand drive. 

66′ Foul on storay, Davies slows down storay on the counter and is lucky not to get a slice.

62′ Davies with an electric run, she beats two City but her squared pass finds no one and city clear.

61′ Warriors clear but OLW will feel hard done by as Storay clobbered her opponent.

60′ OLW called for offside, a lovely ball is played in by hope but the warrior’s striker didn’t time her run correctly.

58′ GOAL (LCI), Bygrave equalises from 38 yards into the top right-hand corner. Absolute screamer. 

56′ Foul on City, Bygrave is fouled by Rina as she drove towards goal.

Olympia is starting to pile the pressure on now. 

53′ FAGAN ALMOST !!… she beats two defenders and the goalkeeper but is denied by the crossbar. Good effort, great run.

plays stopped here as there is an OLW player down hurt, she’s holding her face but it looks like she’ll be ok.

51′ Hope absolute burns past E. Hernyk but her back stick cross finds no-one and city clear.

49′ Storay hits the wood work for City after jinking past OLW player, terrific effort.

47′ GOAL (OLW), City turn the ball in for an own goal under no pressure.

Back under way here at Buckby Landrover PARK

The referee has blown for Half-time.

43′ Lovely feet by Storay, she Jinks in between two and wins a corner for her side, Bygrave sends one in but is cleared from city.

41′ Corner for Olympia , B Hernyk turns the ball behind for a corner. She almost put the ball in her own net .. Inches WIDE !!.

38′ Fagan in a goal mouth scramble equalises for City into the bottom left-hand corner. 

Football can be a cruel sport at times, City has had a heap of chances and probably the better of the play but Olympia have been clinical in front of goal . 

35 Goal Roberts (OLW) with an absolute belter from 25 yards, She took on one and with a drop of the shoulder belted the ball into the top left-hand corner. She won’t score many better than that.

34′ Goal !!!Johnson makes no mistake here and finish from 9 yards out

31′ Davies with a lovely run down the left, she squares it to Bomford whose effort trickles into  Browns hair.

27 Fagan causing Olympia all sorts of problems here, her direct running in behind is causing Craw all sorts of issues.

26′ Hernky again from distance, she beats two Olympia players and cuts in from the left and fires over the top.

21′ Olympia finally register a shot but it’s well wide!!! Crawford will be disappointed with that effort.

20′ Shot off for City, Olympia turn the ball over far too easily and E.Hernyk has a pop from distance.

17′ GOAL !! Fagan gives city the upper hand with a tidy finish after being played in by Storay.

this is a massively different Launceston City side here today, they are showing heaps of endeavour and playing some really good football.

14′ Fagan Inches wide… Bygrave played her in down the middle with only the keeper to beat, really good effort but City should be up here.

13′ Massive shout for a free there as Storay is smashed in a challenge, The City coaching staff not happy with the decision or the tackle.

11′ A real chance for City as Fagan tries to connect to a cross from the left-hand side, probably should have tucked that one away.

7′ Corner for City, Bygrave to swing one in from the right-hand side…lovely delivery with Storay heading just wide.

4′ Shot off for Olympia, Rina tries one from range. That’s not going to trouble Brown

Annnnnndd We’re underway here at Buckby Ranger Park!!!

Thanks for joining me (Mitch Dent) today for the contest between 3rd Place Launceston City and 2nd place Olympia warriors, which is sure to be a belter! Last time these two met Olympia walked away with a comfortable 9-3 win with Lucy Johnson scoring a cool 6 of those. Olympia has plenty of talent today on show in the likes of Georgia Crawford, Innocent Hope and the electric Bonnie Davies who should give city plenty of headaches. Launceston city comes into this as slight underdogs, but you can never write off a team who have talents such as Caitlin Storay, Beth Bygrave and Emily Hernyk.  Hope you Enjoy!
