71′ Zebras have definitely lifted this half, seeing a lot of possession and Uni now having to rely on the counter attack for any opportunity.

69′ Substitute for Zebras, Jane Archer coming off and Andrea Perry coming onto the park

63′ SAVE! Zebras putting together a lot of passes, involving the left side of the team, Macgregor fires a shot off but George does well standing strong to save the shot.

59′ Zebras foray forward with some good link up play and Macgregor fires off a shot from 25 yards out, going just over the bar

55′ The ball seeing a lot more time in the midfield this half. The early goal this half seems to have shaken Uni’s confidence, whilst being a boost for the Zebras who are linking really well, involving all their players in the midfield. Both sides still having chances though.

45′ GOAL! Beautiful play by Zebras off the kick off to see plenty of passes and space created, leading to Alyssa Bowden getting on the end of it in the middle of the box and finding the bottom left hand corner of the goal, well out of reach from the goalkeeper. Uni 1 – 3 Zebras

Half Time: Uni 1 – 2 Zebras

45+’ GOAL! Zebras get one in off a corner through Kayla Mason heading it home. The ref calls for halftime straight after. Uni 1 – 2 Zebras

43′ Ingham gets in on goal for another chance, but the Zebras keeper touches it out for a corner

40′ Chance! End to end stuff here, Uni get an opportunity, with O. Young smashing the ball into the keeper

39′ Chance! Zebras go close with Morris getting in behind, shooting off a bobbly ball which George isn’t able to control, but it stays out.

35′ GOAL! Ingham runs down the right flank, beating the fullback and slots the ball into the near post to bring the sides level. Uni 1 – 1 Zebras

30′ Still end to end here, Zebras happy to play more on the counter, whilst Uni are just unable to find enough to get past the Zebras defence

24′ Morris gets a chance in on goal, chips George but the ball runs out too far and pressure from the Uni defence ensures the ball runs out for a goal kick

22′ Zebras get a corner and ask a few questions of the Uni defence, but ultimately Burt’s shot goes off target.

20′ Still fairly even here, but the game is open with both sides getting into their attacking halves. Uni have had the edge of possession so far, however the Zebras seem to be doing the most of it, going forward quickly.

12′ Both sides having spells of possession here, S. Young and  Muir linking up well for Uni and Nichols and Bowden in the centre of things for the Zebras.

5′ GOAL! Rachel Ridler scores for the Zebras, after Nichols initial shot is parried away by George, but Ridler gets on the end of it to put her side ahead. Uni 0 – 1 Zebras

4′ Nichols puts a ball in for Morris, but Uni keeper George cleans it up as the ball goes beyond Morris

2′ All Uni so far, they win the first corner, but make nothing of it.

Sunny afternoon football up here at Olinda Grove, no better place to be.
