The Sportspower Premier and Reserves women’s teams remain unbeaten after winning 6-0 and 4-0, respectively.

In the Premier League game, Australind proved to be a hard opponent to break down, but Busselton’s ability to find time and space on the ball led to a hat-trick from Ariana Dawson and goals to Siobhan Longmore, Claudia Duane and Asha McClurg.

The Reserves match was tougher and required formidable defending by Molly Hawkins and Claire Marchand-Jones.
