Football West News

Northern Redbacks booked their place in the Women’s State Cup Final with a 3-2 win over Fremantle City at Wauhop Park on Wedensday night.

Goals from Shawn Billam, Sarah Carroll and Sophia Neal proved enough for the Women’s Premier Division leaders to secure their spot in the decider, which will take place at Rockingham City’s Lark Hill Sporting Complex on September 1.

Skipper Ballam gave Redbacks the lead after eight minutes but City levelled shortly before the break through Jayme-Lee Smith.

Carroll re-established Redbacks’ lead on 66 minutes yet the home side were level again within 60 seconds when Mikayla Lyons struck.

But there was no denying Redbacks and four minutes from time Neal scored what proved to be the winner.

The second semi-final is scheduled to take place on August 28 between Queens Park and Balcatta.
