Boroondara Eagles has recorded back-to-back victories following a 4-0 win over Ashburton on Sunday afternoon.
The victory follows last week’s stunning upset of ladder leading South Melbourne, and gives the Eagles temporary ownership of third place ahead of Monday night’s clash between Bundoora United and Heidelberg.
In muddy conditions at Ashburton Park, the visitors raced to a two goal lead inside 15 minutes.
A great ball from Ash Callaghan found Aliesha Newman in space on the right flank, with the speedy winger’s vicious strike finding the back of the net to put the favourites in front.
Boroondara scored again two minutes later in unusual circumstances, when a clearance from Ashburton goalkeeper Alex Pocklington struck the back of Ellen Turner, rebounding into goal.
The visitors dominated possession for most of the first half, with Ashburton struggling to clear the ball from their own half.
Newman was providing plenty of problems with her pace down the right flank, and almost provided a goal for Emma Hubbard just before the half-time interval.
