Sarah McCambridge opened the scoring in the first half with two field goals assisted by Caitlin French and Emily Withington.

Romani Kenworthy and Terese Howard worked hard to shut down the Penguins in the third with a late goal to Kenworthy, but Jess Curtis sealed the win for the visitors in the fourth.

Launceston City were on fire at home with a 4-0 win over Devonport. City controlled play throughout the first half and strong attacking gave them a 2-0 lead at the break courtesy of Lynette Stebbings.

Kaylee Demarco and Claudia Gruber created numerous chances but were shut down by Robin Tait and Raquel Innis. Two late goals to Stebbings gave them the match.

After a slow start from South Burnie against Tamar Churinga, South’s Bridgett Murfett opened the scoring with a goal late in the second quarter, following it up with a second early in the third.

Tamar’s Lucy Cooper and Laura Hobbs applied pressure but were unable to convert while June and Jen Phillips, with a goal apiece, gave the Hawks a 4-0 win.

West Devonport had a 7-1 win over an undermanned Smithton Saints, scoring the first two goals before Smithton’s Sonia Poke kept them within a goal coming into the second half.

West Devonport came out firing in the second with stand-out performances from Sam Lawrence and Morgan West. Smithton’s Mel Porteus and Sonia Poke were solid in defence forcing the Dragons to work hard.
