Emma Carbon scored a hat-trick and teammate Mikayla Lyons netted twice as Fremantle City took care of Hyundai NTC Women 6-1 in Round 17 of the Women’s Premier League at Celebration Park on Sunday.
After dominating the early stages of the game, Fremantle’s pressure paid off on the half-hour as Lyons opened the scoring with a cool finish past NTC deputy goalkeeper Ella Hoy.
The goal ended what had been a cagey affair to that point and NTC hit back a minute later when Abbey Green nodded in Grace Monteiro’s cross.
The hosts were level for just a minute, however, as Fremantle forward Carbon bagged her first goal of the day with a long-range effort to put her side back on top.
Goals from former NTC player Annabelle Leek and Lyons’ second gave the visiting Fremantle a 4-1 lead heading into half-time.
Substitute Isabella Wallhead went close to pulling a goal back for NTC on the hour but she saw her header sail over the bar.
Just three minutes later, Carbon killed off the contest with her second of the game to give Fremantle a four-goal lead.
Carbon completed her hat-trick 10 minutes later as Fremantle collected their second win in a row.
