Tech turns it on early to win 5-0

Reigning champion Dunedin Tech continued its unbeaten run in the league with a 5-0 victory over Mosgiel at the Logan Park turf.

Tech took a hold of the game early on, Nieve Collin opening the scoring after three minutes and Margarida Dias doubling its lead on 10 minutes.

Tech led 3-0 at the break with Mosgiel beginning to put pressure on Tech on the counter in the second half.

Collin grabbed her second goal on 60 minutes before Chelsea Whittaker added a fifth in the dying stages of the game.

It was a tightly contested affair at Ellis Park with Roslyn edging out a 3-2 win.

Emma Black nudged Roslyn ahead after 22 minutes of play before Stephanie Lee fired home an equaliser for the Island three minutes later.

The sides were all square at halftime and Green Island edged the early part of the second half, Gracie Vaafusuaga putting it in the lead.

Roslyn retaliated quickly, Kate Macbeth bringing the score level a few minutes later.

Sub Zara Pratley, coming off the bench to score her first goal for the club, sealed the three points for Roslyn.

University Seconds travelled to Queenstown, where the visitors suffered a 7-1 defeat.

Queenstown dominated the match, goals coming from Lana McCluskey, Stef White, Dana McClleland, Caitlin Barrett and a hat-trick from Lauren Murray.
