PRES – E.Eyar, L.Cartanos, K.Farmer, T.Halabi & J.Lazarevski

The match of the round saw the top two sides go head to head as South Melbourne took on Preston with a win to South all but securing the top position. Preston drew first blood as Elizabeth Eyar struck from a side ball routine firing low into the bottom corner for the opener. South hit back through a goal from Julia Sardo which she started from the back before a one-two saw her finish to level proceedings. Preston regained the lead once again as Leia Cartanos struck a rifle from a corner into the top corner, before a well worked move from Preston saw Kristine Famer tap home at the back post to open up a two goal lead and have South in a bit of trouble as Preston lead 3-1 at the break.

South came out of the break looking to turn the deficit around and pulled a goal back as Sardo found Aneta Komijat who finished to have her side within a goal once again, before Laila Abdullatif continued her good form scoring a first time effort from range to have the game back on level terms. Preston looked as if they wouldn’t be denied though as Jasmine Lazarevski fizzed an effort into the bottom corner to restore the Preston advantage, and soon after Taylor Halabi netted to have her side two goal up once again. Sardo struck a stunning effort from range to set up a grand stand finish but Preston would hang on for a crucial win as they handed South Melbourne their first defeat of the season and closed the gap to just three points in a fantastic contest.
