Women end season on a high in thrilling contest

Southern beat Capital in action-packed thriller

Southern signed off on their campaign with a third successive win in exciting fashion, emerging on the right side of an action-packed 5-4 thriller.

Neither team had much to play for going into the contest, but the game bore little resemblance of such, as Southern and Capital put on quite the show for the Sunnyvale crowd.

Football Ferns striker Sarah Gregorius – who top scored for her country at the recent OFC Women’s Nations Cup – did her best to send off Evans on the right note with a four-goal haul, three of which remarkably came from the penalty spot. But she somehow still ended up on the losing end as a double from Renee Bacon, a penalty by Shontelle Smith and further strikes to Chelsea Whittaker and Mikayla Gray gave Southern a memorable victory.

Bacon’s second strike was a contender for goal of the season, the striker lacing an effort over goalkeeper Natasham Ingram from fully 40 metres. In failing to win, Capital missed out on the chance to leap-frog Auckland into a third-placed finish but remained fourth, one place ahead of Southern.

A season recap is to be expected at some point this week.
