LAVERTON, ROOSTERS SCORE IMPORTANT WINS
By JESS MACKEY
Moving into the second half of the season, Laverton have begun to solidify their top four position, keeping Tarneit scoreless this week, plus West Footscray scored their third consecutive win after a convincing win against North Sunshine.
The second half of the season is shaping up to be a lot more competitive as teams are starting to find their feet and gel really well.
Defeating Tarneit for the second time this season, Laverton had an outstanding win, this time they kept their opposition scoreless for the match.
The Magpies had eight individual goal scorers, and kept the ball in their possession for most of the day with 29 scoring shots.
Sasha Edwards, Isabelle Porter, Abbey Brown and Gemma Goodland all scored two goals each for Laverton. Judith Mwaka scored one goal and was best on ground for the winners, applying pressure and running away with the ball.
The Magpies are now two games clear in the top four and seem to be peaking in their performance at the right time.
West Footscray have kept North Sunshine scoreless, as they cemented their place in the competition and fed off the momentum they have built over the last few weeks, following their first win three weeks ago.
Molly Boorman kicked three of the Roosters’ four goals for the match, with Vanessa Galliver the only other goal scorer for the entire game.
Spotswood have continued the good form they have shown all season, as they defeated Werribee Centrals by 88-points in a twilight match on Saturday.
Lauren Dundon starred, kicking seven goals and being a crucial presence up forward, providing a consistent option for midfielders to kick to. Jorgia Le Redmond kicked three goals, and was one of seven goal scorers for Spotswood.
Caroline Springs have had another win, defeating Point Cook Centrals by 83-points.
Caitlin Pretty and Melissa Vickery starred, kicking three goals apiece. Despite inaccuracy forced by Point Cook Centrals’ defensive pressure, the Lakers had 35 scoring shots to just 3 and made it difficult for the visitors to get a taste.
