Scores were level coming into the second half but a stroke to Sarah McCambridge gave Queechy the lead. Deb West followed up with a field goal before City returned fire with a Hayley Vimpany goal.

A penalty corner deflection from Caitlin French in the third gave Queechy some breathing space, but City were not done with a sneaky goal from Emily Nunn in the final quarter. Despite this City couldn’t claim the win.

City Marians came out firing against Tamar Churinga with Therese Howard scoring early. Their fast-paced game gave them two more goals before half-time. Tamar tried hard to contain the in-form Marians to no avail. Monique Grundy and Petrina Birtwistle put away one goal apiece sealing the win.

The Suns came out on top with a 3-0 win over Devonport. It was an even first half until a late goal to Hayley Johns put the Suns in front.

Suns overpowered Devonport through the centre and held control throughout the remainder of the game, collecting an additional two goals from Melanie Stephens and Charlotte Grant.

It was a hard-fought win to South Burnie against home side Smithton. Hawks controlled the first half with goals from Mikayla Beaumont, Meah Leary and Raeleigh Phillips.

Saints came out firing in the third quarter with Alex Mainwaring scoring off a penalty. Saints scored again in the fourth quarter before a Hawks fight back and a second goal to Meah Leary sealed the win.
