 Shots Off


Full time. Launceston City 0 – 4 Ulverstone.

93′ Slice of cheese! Foote bumps Zasadny and concedes the foul. Sees a yellow for kicking the ball away.

91′ 4-0 to Ulverstone. Gorrie holds off Hernyk and hits it into the side netting.

81′ Wells is taken from the pitch and Ulverstone look to be playing with 10 players for the remaining 10 minutes.

76′ Steventon goes through the back of the Wells. A studs first stomping challenge and is very lucky to not see anything for it. A dangerous challenge considering she’s already on a yellow. The Ulverstone player is in some considerable pain and the stretcher will be required.

Substitution ready for City. Legg will come on for Hawes.

71′ Foote breaks through and blasts a shot that challenges Dewsbury in goal. The City shot-stopper manages to tip it over for a corner.

City seems to be missing the presence of Bygrave and Savill in the midfield. They’re finding it hard to link up with the attack.

Substitution for Ulverstone. Cox-Haines & Hardy ON. Sims & Reimer OFF.

63′ A cross comes in off the freekick which Dewsbury comes out to claim. After an initial fumble, she recovers to deny the Ulverstone runners an open net.

55′ Gorrie weaves between several City defenders but her shot was weak and straight at Dewsbury.

53′ Dewsbury with a fantastic piece of goalkeeping. Weeda thought she’d picked out the bottom corner but it’s out for an Ulverstone corner.

Seems as though Fagan has dropped deeper into midfield. E. Hernyk moves to the centre-forward role and the substitute Reitsema replacing her at left wing. Perhaps Fagan can provide the service to Hernyk that she was lacking in the first half.

Substitution at halftime for City. Reitsema ON. Banner OFF.

45′ Second half is underway.

Halftime. Launceston City 0 – 3 Ulverstone

45′ Gorrie hits the post again! After a brilliant turn, she shoots across the goal and hits the far post.

41′ Slice of cheese for Steventon as she goes through the back of the Ulverstone player. A disappointing challenge from the City skipper, she’s been rock solid all day making several clean and important challenges.

36′ Commentators curse seems to be more of a blessing this time as City get deep into the Ulverstone half on the counter. A great run from Fagan after winning the ball. But Nellis recovers and forces a corner.

City have been on the back foot for a majority of this first half. Unable to get many more attacks other than a few counters in the first 10 minutes. It’s been all Ulverstone in the first half so far.

32′ Ulverstone press the goal kick well forcing a throw-in after City try to play it out from the back.

30′ Gorrie hits the bar! Foote showed good composure in the box and lays it back to Gorrie on the edge of the box who finesses it into the crossbar.

23′ Penalty for Ulverstone. Hernyk takes out the Ulverstone player. Gorrie steps up slides it home to make it 3-0.

22′ Steventon unable to control and it leaves Reimer through with just Hawes to beat but her shot is over.

20′ 2-0. Another goal to Reimer. A long ball from the keeper finds Gorrie who manages to thread it through to the overlapping Reimer. A nicely placed shot curled around the keeper from not the easiest of angles.

18′ 1-0 to Ulverstone. Reimer left in acres of space on the corner and is able to guide it between several City legs on the line. Questionable positioning from City at the set piece.

16′ Gorrie played through into the box but her cross across the face is blocked by Steventon.

13′ A long ball to Gorrie is cut out brilliantly by Steventon. The City captain deals with the pressure to keep her side 0-0

After the first 10 minutes, it seems like City are looking to make their chances on the counter. May not be a bad game plan with Fagan, Hernyk and Shegog up front.

8′ Emily Hernyk finds City’s first attack for the game after a counter. She can’t manage to get the shot on target.

7′ Foote found a loose ball on the edge of the box but blasts it high and wide.

6′ Steventon makes her way back onto the pitch.

4′ Steventon down in her box needing attention from the City bench. Would be a huge blow for City if she had to go off.

2′ It’s Ulverstone with most of the attack early on. Gorrie and Reimer being played the ball but unable to find an early goal.
