Red Lion Cup

Red Lion Cup Presentations
​Presentation of the Red Lion Cup

​On Wednesday 17th September at Middle Ridge Park, Harristown Blue battled Harristown White for Red Lion Cup supremacy.

An entertaining first half saw some nice attacking play from Blue and tough, disciplined defence from White, leading to scores being locked at 0-0 at half time.

Ten minutes after the break, Courtney Simshauser opened the scoring when she squeezed her shot inside the near post. White continued to apply some attacking pressure, however Blue were able to effectively shut down these raids. Steph Moore then showed her attacking potential with a fine individual goal and Katie Orange finished the game off with a superb goal on the run then cannoned into the back of the net.

Both teams played the game hard, but fair, which was illustrated at the presentation with warm applause for every player on acceptance of their medallion. The girls continue to showcase their ability for Girls' Football within the region, Harristown State High School and themselves and should be proud of their efforts. Sophie Fuller capped off a strong game with the Player of the Match award as decided by the match officials. Well done to all involved.
