South East Ladies moved up to sixth place in the Southern Women's Championship 1, following a comfortable victory over Hobart United at Pembroke Park on Sunday.
Leading scorer Jo-anne Roland led the way with a rare double-hatrick, while a delighted Tari Gribble finally registered her first goals for the club with an opportunist brace. Michelle Glass completed the rout with her first of the season.
However, the game ended on a sour note for United, with powerhouse midfielder Ashlee Griffiths suffering a potentially season-ending recurrence of the quad injury which has plagued her season to date, while fellow midfielder Susie Morgan was also forced from the field with a calf strain late on.
The ladies will look to consolidate their position in the top half of the ladder when Taroona come to Sorell on Friday evening.
The game was refereed by ex-South East star Kasper Hallam, who lines up on Monday for South Hobart in the final of the Lakoseljac Cup against Devonport Strikers at KGV (kick off 3:30pm). A win for Kasper's team will also see them qualify for the national FFA Cup, and a chance to lock horns with the giants from the Hyundai A-League. Should be well worth checking out if you’re free.
