Full time. Launceston City 3 – 4 Ulverstone

93’ GOAL!! 3-4 TO ULVERSTONE! Sims saves Ulverstone’s perfect season, allowed too much time on the ball and blasts it past Dewsbury from outside the area.

89’ Fagan clashes with Anderson who came out to clear. Anderson comes off second best and possibly lucky not to give away the foul. Referee stops play to make sure both players are ok.

88’ G. Foote plays a long ball from defence and in behind the City defence to Gorrie who got under the ball amd blasts it over despite being 1-on-1.

83’ G. Foote inches away from putting her side ahead. Hitting the crossbar with her shot after the corner.

81’ Aitken loses her footing in the box and in doing so forfeits a chance on goal.

76’ Dewsbury comes out bravely and strongly to claim the ball.

City appear to be playing with more aggression this half  and it seems to be paying off as they are really taking it to the league leaders so far this half.

67’ Goal! 3-3. L. Foote goes on a solo run past the City defence and shoots across goal to the far post to make it 3-3.

Substitute for Ulverstone. Reimer OFF. Sims ON.

63’ Slice of cheese to Smith for a foul on Fagan. Bygrave swings the free kick in and Anderson palms it out for a corner.

61’ Goal! 3-2 to City. Fagan plays E. Hernyk in who tucks it past the oncoming Anderson.

Substitute for Ulverstone. Cox-Haines OFF. Aitken ON.

58’ Goal! 2-2. Fagan wins the ball and beats the defender to get herself into a dangerous position. She composed herself and slides it under the keeper.

57’ Hernyk tracks back brilliantly with the pacey Gorrie and slides in to break up the play.

54’ Zasadny caught napping as Ulverstone take the free kick quickly and play it out to Reima who shoots into the side netting.

49’ Walsh shoulders off Cox-Haines and works it out for a goal kick.

Second half is underway

Half time – Launceston City 1 – 2 Ulverstone

43’ Promising moment from City. Some link up play between Shegog and Fagan sees Bygrave playing it out left to Hernyk whose first touch was very heavy and it goes out for a goal kick.

40’ Goal! 2-1. Shegog runs onto the free ball and puts it home from inside 6 yards after the cross beat Anderson.

32’ G. Foote picks up a slice of cheese.

26’ Gorrie drives a cross into the box. A strong clearance from the City defender.

23’ Goal! 2-0. Reima chips Dewsbury who taps it onto the bar but then the ball fell over the line.

23’ Hernyk is played through with acres of space but is offside.

19’ Bygrave with some excellent vision and a nicely weighted chopped through ball to Fagan but the City striker couldn’t control it.

14’ Bygrave plays Hernyk in behind but she’s called offside.

11’ Steventon with a crucial block to divert danger and give Ulverstone a corner.

8’ First shot on target from City as E. Hernyk hits one from distance to try and catch Anderson off guard, but the Ulverstone keeper had it covered.

4’ Goal! 1-0 to Ulverstone after Gorrie chases the ball and puts the cross in to Reima who manages to guide it home with her thigh.

2’ Gorrie plays the ball into Cox-Haines whose shot was saved brilliantly but an oncoming Dewsbury.
