2013/14 PEPSI Women’s WVLP Round 6 RESULT: Melbourne Uni FC 6-1 Ashburton FC
MU – M.Marques 5, L.Sammut
ASH – N.Mackie
To kick off the only game of Round 6 this week ladder leaders Melbourne Uni took on a rejuvenated Ashburton. In typical Melbourne fasion they got 2 early goals and sat on that lead going into half time leading 2-0 and looking ever more like the team to beat this season.
The second half was much of the same with Francis Land saving anything that slipped through Melbourne’s defence (As well as a helping hand from the post) Ashburton never really looked as if they were going to trouble Melbourne and even when they felt they were taking some momentum away Melbourne superstar Marques banged in 4 second half goals to take her tally to 5 for the night and finish off Ashburton with Naomi Mackie getting Ashburton’s only goal for the night. Marques was once again the star of the show as she looks this season’s front runner for MVP as for Ashburton they have failed to beat anyone in the top 4 as they will need to improve if they are to crack the top 4 this season.
Player Of The Game – Marcella Marques (Melbourne Uni FC)
A 5 goal haul tonight Marcella continues to light up the Women’s V-League and she is propelling her side toward the title as early as it may Melbourne Uni will be tough to stop if she keeps up this form.
