The latest news on how the Aussie women are getting on around the globe
Kate Gill - LdB Malmo (Sweeden) Sarah Walsh - Boston Breakers (US) Lisa De Vanna - Washington Freedom (US) Heather Garriock - Fortuna Hjorring (Denmark)
Kate Gill scored a hat-trick and got one assist in her sides 6-1 demolition of Jitex BK.
LdB FC Malmö - Jitex BK 6-1
After last week's shock victory against Umeå, Jitex must have been feeling pretty good about themselves but Kate Gill's Malmo side brought them back to reality. Their own report says that they resisted pretty well in the first half, but that the second half was all LdB.
LdB coach Martin Sjögren generously agreed with that, saying that the score first half was not so lopsided as the numbers made it appear, and that Gill's 3-1 goal came out of nowhere. Still, Jitex is looking forward to next week's game against Hammarby, where they should have better prospects.
For its part, LdB seemed quite pleased to be able to spread the credit around. The lion's share went to Kathryn Gill, who made her home debut in some style by scoring a hat-trick and assisting on a fourth.
The damfotboll report wonders whether she will become the crucial player for LdB, being tall, safe and strong with the ball.
"If you have such good team mates, that makes it easy," said Gill afterwards.
More than one thousand people attended this match, the best attendance for the season so far. In the wake of last week's red card to Göteborg's Hedvig Lindahl, people are watching the referees more closely than usual, but a single yellow card was given (to Elin Sandgren of Jitex) and apparently no one had any cause to complain about anything.
Heather Garriock - scored in a 9-nil wil over SønderjyskE
With a 9-0 victory over bottom team SønderjyskE, Fortuna Hjørring a strongly emphasized its position as the leading team in 3 F league.
There was class distinction and Fortuna could have scored more according to those at the match.
Fortuna coach Flemming Nielsen was delighted with the display.
"We played even without profiles Mariann Gajhede, Camilla Sand, Chichi Igbo and Julie Rydahl, so it was quite sovereign"
Lisa De Vanna forced a late save after coming on as a second half sub for Washington Freedom but could not lift her team for the win in their match against Sarah Walsh-s Boston Breakers who triumphed 2-1.
