University v Kingborough

Full Time

University 3 (Cropp 64′, 84′, Young 87′)

Kingborough 3 (Edwards 8′, Gardner 31, James 56′)


After shipping 16 goals across the first two weeks of the season University will looking to get their season back on track as they play host to the Kingborough Lions at Olinda Grove. It has been a tough draw for University to start the year and despite setting out their stall to defend in both games they have been unable to hold out. They should be able to enjoy more of the ball this week which should see their quality attacking players like Olivia Young and Eliza Kropp get more of the ball in more promising positions. If they can get some supply in good areas then there is some hurt factor in this side. They showed they are a much better side than their first two Super League results suggested in their 2-0 Summer Cup win over Taroona, now they need to show it in the season proper. Kingborough meanwhile will be looking to bounce back from throwing away three points against Ulverstone. The young Lions took a 2-0 lead inside of five minutes before eventually losing down 3-2 and they had the chances to win the game, but couldn’t take them. Davis, Tatton and Dadswell looked a constant threat against Ulverstone and given University’s defensive record so far, they will be eyeing off more goals in this one to fire them to what they will hope will be a first victory of the season.
