Sunday’s game saw another win added to Cobram Roar’s tally after the women won 6-0 against Wodonga Heart.

Leading 3-0 at half-time, it was made clear early in the game that the side’s best play was done when players shared it with each other.

From the goalkeeper to the forward players and, every girl in between, they showed their class to the best of each ones ability.

The defensive structure formed a firm blockage to any attacks and created the opportunities for the play in the forward half.

This week Cobram struggled with only seven players on the field and a tough Wodonga side which managed to score early on in the first half.

However, with better communication and adaption to playing with the small side, Cobram started to keep the ball moving into the right direction creating many scoring chances, particularly into the second half.

Cobram remained persistent and the determination paid off with an equalising goal scored.

The defence kept the ball off the Wodonga strikers for the remainder of the match, seeing the game ending in 1-1.

With rain on its way, Roar was looking forward to a positive start to the game.

The first 10 minutes of the game showed signs of a tough game for both sides.

Wodonga had its standout players, but luckily Roar had enough depth in defence to keep Wodonga at bay.

Roar opened its account with Sam Hurlston scoring from the spot.

Roar’s lead was short-lived with Heart scoring just before half-time.

After the break both teams continued the pressure with Roar’s winning goal coming one minute before full time.
