Next weekend, Balcatta Etna will take on the Northern Redbacks in the WANPL Women’s Night Series Cup Final after both sides celebrated semi-final wins.
Cup holders Balcatta Etna came from behind to claim a 2-1 win against Fremantle City at E&D Litis Stadium.
Balcatta replied to Freo taking the lead in style. Angelique Alberts levelled matters and a sensational winner from Cawley which now gives the side a chance to retain the trophy – a perfect boost going into the new WANPL Women’s season.
They will now face Northern Redbacks who defeated Perth SC 2-1. After a goalless first half, Jayna Ridley and Larissa Walsh were on target for the Redbacks. Perth had an opportunity at the death to level matters, but to no avail.
