64′ another sub fro both teams
City: on Reitsema, off Ruffo

61′ Clarence get their first effort on target.

58′ a pretty docile start to the second half with neither side really threatening at this stage.

54′ Both sides make a sub.
City: On Halaby, Off Cutherbertson
Clarence: On Clark, Off Johnston

46′ 2nd half kicks off!

HALF TIME: Complete domination from Launceston City, they have been absolutely ruthless in front of goal and head into the break with a commanding 6 goal lead. City 6 Clarence nil.

43′ GOAL CITY – it’s getting ugly for Clarence as Savill shoots from way out only for the centre back to miss the header and the ball to skip past Chalker for 6!

40′ GOAL CITY – a goal kick for City finds Bygrave who turns and hoofs it long. She finds Savill who crosses it in for Fagan, who knocks it down and E. Hernyk is jogging on the spot to blast it home for City’s fifth! City 5 Clarence nil.

Steventon and Bygrave are really starting to assert themselves on this match. Time after time one of them will win the ball back and start the attacks for City.

34′ GOAL CITY – a corner from Bygrave is headed out of the box by Hernyk, it falls to Cuthbertson who strikes from outside the 18 yard box, and blasts it into the bottom left to make it City 4 Clarence nil.

31′ A super ball out of the back by Brooke Hernyk, finds Walsh on the left, her cross goes all the way across to Shegog at the back post, who plays it back in for Savill to shoot, but it’s well saved by Chalker and cleared away for a throw.

29′ Savill has been the orchestrator for much of City’s best work, she’s showing plenty of class in these tough conditions

17′ GOAL CITY – Savill plays a perfect defence splitting ball through for Fagan who has one touch and launches at goal. She beats the swinging leg of Chalker and puts City three to the good! City 3 Clarence nil.

It’s all City here early, and the rain continues to get heavier. It’s going to be a long game for the girls!

8′ GOAL CITY – Hernyk strikes from range which is beaten away by Chalker, but straight on to the head Shegog who heads home without knowing much about it! City 2 Clarence nil.

4′ GOAL CITY – Steventon beats two, plays a cool ball to the penalty spot where Emily Hernyk finishes calmly into the top corner. City 1 Clarence nil.

2′ Maggie Cuthbertson hits the first shot on target from distance which is beaten away by Chalker for a corner, which amounts to nothing.

0′ Kick off

Absolutely teeming down here at Buckby Landrover Park as we approach kick off. Will be interesting to see how both teams handle the conditions.
