Third Division

Knox 30 d Boronia 28

This match was a nail-biter from start to finish as neither side managed to open up any more than a 2-goal advantage at any break. With the scores level at three-quarter time, the game was anyone’s for the taking. Eventually, it was Knox who managed to gain the ascendancy, off the back of the goaling efforts of Brianna Wolski who had 18 goals for the match.
