CARL – R.Saber 2, R.Davies & C.Johns
The final game of the evening was a big one as third took on fourth with Northcote and Carlton facing off needing a victory to keep their title chances alive. Northcote stormed out of the blocks and built a crucial three-nil lead thanks to a brace from Mary Hubeek & a single to Monica Fonua having their side in control. A Rebecca Davies strike before the break kept Carlton in with a chance of a come back as they trailed 3-1 at the break.
Northcote again started the second half on the front foot and added to their advantage thanks to a pair of Camilla Fresneda strikes all but putting the game to bed. Carlton weren’t going to lay down and quit though and pulled two quick goals back through Rebecca Saber & Claudia Johns as they looked to claw their way back into it.
