45′ Second Half Underway  

In the first half here at Wentworth Park the Zebras have held the majority of opportunities, but have failed to capitalise. Clarence’s defence has held together well and they have looked dangerous numerous times on the attack. It will be interesting to see if the Zebras can begin to finish their opportunities after holding the ball for the majority of the game or if Clarence will begin to hold more possession as the game moves into the second half.
