FC Carlton Heart 6-1 Melbourne Amazons FC 

CARL – S.Oddo 2, J.Byrne, Z.Tizard, S.Anastasopoulos & B.Lee OG
MEL – B.Lee

Next up saw Carlton look to keep pace with the ladder leaders as they took on Melbourne Amazons. Like the previous two games, it was the Amazons who struck first through Bianca Lee to give her side the lead and have Carlton a little rattled. The Heart steadied the ship when Stefanie Oddo found the net to level proceedings, before goals to Savanna Anastasopoulos & Zoe Tizard had Carlton leading 3-1 at the half time break and in control.

An own goal at the start of the second half killed off any chance of a comeback for the Amazons as they got out to a 4-1 lead that looked too much to overhaul. Jess Byrne finished off a fantastic move from Carlton to add some polish to the result, before a late strike from Oddo and her second of the game saw Carlton run out commanding winners.

Player of the game – Stefanie Oddo (FC Carlton Heart)

NOR – C.Koranias & M.Hubeek
PVFC – B.Gonzalez 2, A.Caro & A.Flight

The final game of the evening was a big one as third placed Northcote took on fourth placed Pascoe Vale in a must win for both sides. Pascoe drew first blood through returning Beatriz Gonzalez to give the Lioness’ the lead. Northcote pulled back the deficit with Candice Koranias finding the net to tie the scores at one, before Gonzalez netted again, this time from a tight angle to give her side the lead once again. Before the break a well worked set piece from Pascoe was finished off by Anita Caro to open up a two goal lead for the Lioness’ at the half time break.

Northcote began the second half well on top and after a number of chances, got the goal they were after through a Mary Hubeek strike to have her side right in the game. Pascoe again pulled away with Abbey Flight netting to restore the two goal lead for the Lioness’. Northcote were throwing everything at Pascoe but were not finding the back of the net and it ultimately cost them as Pascoe hung on for a crucial victory to push them into third place.

Player of the game – Beatriz Gonzalez (Pascoe Vale FC)
