Round Two of the Julie Porter Cup kicked off on Sunday afternoon, with the weather allowing just two of the four fixtures to be completed.
Woonona scored two second half goals to secure a 2-1 win against Bulli at Ocean Park whilst the Shellharbour Scorpions proved to be the most dominant side with a 9-1 win over the Warilla Wanderers at Myimbarr Park.
Unfortunately, due to wet weather conditions, Albion Park White Eagles sat out for the second week in a row in what would’ve been a clash against the Kiama Quarriers.
Meanwhile, Thirroul Thunder’s fixture against UOW was also washed out.
Woonona 2 (Hawes 58, Wheatley 65’) Bulli 1 (Campbell 67’)
A late goal from a well-experienced Jordan Wheatley saw Woonona take home a 2-1 win over Bulli in round two of the Julie Porter Cup.
It was a slow start for both sides at Ocean Park on Sunday afternoon with nil goals having been scored in the first 45 minutes of the match.
Captain Ainsley Hawes opened the scoring up for Woonona with a neat finish to set the scores at 1-0 in the 58th minute.
Just minutes later, a goal from Jordan Wheatley gave her side a 2-0 lead over Bulli with just 25 minutes remaining.
Bulli found momentum just two minutes later, with a goal from Elyse Campbell to set the score at 2-1 in the 67th minute.
Both teams continued a hard-fought contest, however, it was an outstanding Wheatley who secured Woonona a 2-1 win over Bulli, alongside their second win for the Cup.
Warilla Wanderers 1 (Kyriacou) Shellharbour Scorpions 9 (Kelly, De Jong, Golding, Harrison, Wilson, Reardon 4 goals)
A standout performance by Shellharbour Scorpions’ Tiana Reardon led her side to a 9-1 whitewash over a depleted Warilla Wanderers side at Myimbarr Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Scorpions entered the match undefeated after a 2-0 win over the Kiama Quarriers in round one of the Julie Porter Cup.
Taya Kelly kicked off the match against the Wanderers with a 1-0 lead for Shellharbour early in the match.
It wasn’t long before Irene Kyriacou sank a shot from the penalty spot, levelling the scores at 1-1.
The Scorpions took back the lead with a goal from Mikayla De Jong, securing a 2-1 lead at the half-time break.
Shellharbour came out firing in the second half and the Warilla ran out of gas as the Scorpions ran riot with goals from Lara Golding, Lily Harrison and Nikola Wilson.
But it was Tiana Reardon who looked to be unstoppable scoring four goals for the Scorpions, confirming a massive 9-1 victory over a weary Warilla at full-time.

The Julie Porter Cup will hopefully be played this weekend with round three fixtures for the Cup although a few games will need to be caught up before the final stages begin.
