ECU, Phoenix lead goal rush

There were a few one-sided matches in the Women’s State League Division One as leaders Sorrento and South West Phoenix maintained their 100% starts to the season.

Sorrento’s 3-1 victory at Armadale was one of the more routine results, Jacqueline Nellany, Jodie Brough and Jayde Keogh on target for the Gulls.

Second-place ECU Joondalup went to town against Gwelup Croatia, winning 9-0. Aimee Coghlan (3) and Talissa Hollis (2) led the way for the Jacks.

Champions Phoenix, who are third but with a game in hand, also went big as they defeated Stirling Macedonia 7-0. Lara Graham, Lucy Darbyshire and Salli Howden-Woodland scored two apiece.

And Mandurah City made sure they didn’t miss out, claiming a 5-0 win at Port Kennedy. City had five different scorers in their victory - Elizabeth Green, Melissa Spillman, Lauren Davidson and Amy Terrell had them four up at the break, while Natasha Hirani added another in the second half.
