The Julie Porter Cup continued over the weekend with two show-stopping matches!

In Pool 1, the Albion Park White Eagles set the bar high and grabbed their first win for the cup with a 3-0 victory over Bulli FC at Balls Paddock.

Meanwhile, in Pool 2, Thirroul JFC played their second match, securing a 1-1 draw over the University of Wollongong.

Albion Park White Eagles 3 Bulli FC 0

On Sunday afternoon, the Albion Park White Eagles took to the stage, where they effortlessly defeated Bulli FC 3-0 at Balls Paddock.

The first 25 minutes of the match showed a solid performance from Bulli, keeping their opponents off the score sheet.

However, it didn’t take long for APWE to succeed at goal when Eliza Cowan drove past the defence line, before sending a precise ball into Brittany Ring who made no mistake at goal in the 39th minute.

Just three minutes later, an exchange between Ariana Fleming and Eliza Cowan saw Cowan send her impeccable first-time shot into the top corner for a 2-0 lead before half-time.

The second half commenced and only one goal was scored in the remaining 45 minutes.

Another great play from the White Eagles saw Fleming pick the ball up in the centre of the pitch, before her shot went flying from 30 yards out and into the net.

Bulli continued their intensity and showed great strength, however, it was APWE who would snatch the three points at the final blow.


University of Wollongong FC 1 Thirroul FC 1

With the University of Wollongong heading into their first match of the Julie Porter Cup over the weekend, it was a much improved performance from Thirroul FC as they took home a 1-1 draw against the home side at Koolobong Oval.

Thirroul would open up the scoring in the 23rd minute of the match when Leah Carlon received a cross in the centre of the box before sending her composed shot into the back of the net for a 1-0 lead.

With a continuous flow of attacking attempts from both sides, it was Thirroul who would go into the break with a 1-0 lead over their opponents.

An intense game continued into the second half of the match, with the University of Wollongong grabbing their first goal of the day at the 79th minute through Amy Morell who was sent in behind her defence line before finding the back of the net.

The two teams would battle it out until the end, but once the full-time whistle blew, both Thirroul and UOWFC would share points this round.

The Julie Porter Cup will continue on Sunday where APWE will go head-to-head with 2023 League Champions, Woonona Sharks.

Meanwhile, in Pool 2, Shellharbour will face off against UOWFC.

Both matches will be played at Myimbarr Park.
