Women’s NPL Round 2 Review: Olympic FC Resilient at Heath Park

Round 2 of the PlayStation 4 National Premier League Queensland

Report: Braden Asujamaa

Olympic FC have been defeated by local rivals Eastern Suburbs FC 4-1, in a highly contested match at Heath Park on Wednesday Night.

Searching for their first win of the season, Olympic FC were unfortunate not to net several goals with the midfield working extremely hard to create numerous chances.

The match was evenly poised at half-time with Eastern Suburbs leading 1-0 at the change of sides. However, due to the wet weather and postponements at Olympic FC, it would be a lack of match training and conditioning which would undo the women as Eastern Suburbs ran away with the victory 4-1.

Tegan Riding was again at the heart of the Easts’ attack, scoring a fine hat-trick to bring her tally to five goals in two matches.

Substitute, Teani Karalouka was able to celebrate scoring her first goal for Olympic FC’s Senior Women’s NPL team in the 89th minute, deservedly placing Olympic FC on the scoresheet.

Olympic FC will now face University of Queensland FC in their first home game of the season on Friday 21st of April as they look to open their account. We urge as many fans as possible to attend Goodwin Park on the night to support the Senior Women’s NPL team as they fight for their first victory of the season. Meanwhile, Easts will try to make it three from three at home to SWQ Thunder Women this weekend.

Key Moments

12’ – GOAL FOR EASTS – Tegan Riding produces a sole effort to open the scoring.

46’ – GOAL FOR EASTS – Riding makes a barnstorming run from the left and unleashes an unstoppable shot from 20 metres out.

49’ – GOAL FOR EASTS – Riding again runs at the Olympic defence and unnervingly converts her hat-trick chance.

88’ – GOAL FOR EASTS – Chloe Prieditis heads home from close range after being left unmarked.

89’ – GOAL FOR OLYMPIC – Sustained pressure from Olympic leads to Teani Karalouka hitting a fine strike into the top corner.
