Pascoe Vale FC 4-2 Fitzroy FC
PVFC – B.Silva 2 & J.Byrne 2
FITZ – C.Chloe & S.Oddo
Next on the card saw Pascoe Vale take on Fitzroy in what was a big game in the course of these sides seasons. It was Pascoe who opened the scoring with Bruna Silva firing home at the near post to give her side the lead. In what was a defensive game, goals were hard to come by and the Lioness’ got a big one on the stroke of half time as Abbey Flight found Silva at the back post to take the Lioness’ into the break with a two goal advantage at the break.
Moments into the second half Fitzroy halved the deficit as newcomer Chloe struck to halve the deficit, but Pascoe looked too organised as a well worked move on the break was finished off by Jess Byrne, before Byrne fired home for a second time for an almost game clinching 4-1 lead. Fitzroy battled until the end scoring a late consolation through Stef Oddo but it was too little too late as Pascoe keep their top four hopes alive.
