Kingborough held onto the ball for the majority of the half and were unlucky not to score. Clarence got their goal early and continued to defend well, with multiple counter attacks throughout the half. Moving into the second half it will be interesting to see if Kingborough continue their persistent attack or if Clarence can find another gear and pile on the pressure, as they look to get their first points of the year.
