Record Setting Reds Too Strong For South

Ulverstone inflicted another heavy defeat upon South Hobart, charging to a dominant 8-0 victory in their Round 18 Super League clash as they moved a step closer a perfect season and broke another record in the process.

The Coastal power has bossed their contests with South this year and Saturday was no exception as they ran up the score and in the process created a new record. The win extends their streak to 18 consecutive Super League wins, eclipsing the Zebras mark of 17 set last year.

As she so often has been, it was the pacey Jazmin Gorrie who was the destroyer in chief, torching the South defence with four more goals, scoring a brace in each half. It takes her season tally to 34, which is just 4 goals shy of Lucy Johnson’s mark of 38 from the 2017 season. Given the phenomenal rate at which Gorrie has been scoring this season, a new record looks increasingly likely.

She was joined on the scoresheet by Lucy Foote, Shelby Aitken and Lily James, the Reds utterly dominant as they turned a 3-0 halftime lead into an 8-0 win.

The victory means Ulverstone now stand just three games away from a perfect season, with fixtures against University, Launceston City and Kingborough to come. They will start hot favourites in all 3 of those games, making it a distinct possibility.
