Lyon's Looks - Women's Premier League

Glendale Lady Raptors v Berkeley All Blues

Berkeley and Glendale both headed into the weekend with 3-1 records, each looking to claim topspot in the Women’s Premier League’s Blue Division. Glendale ran out swiftly to a 13-nil lead in the opening stages of the match on a penalty struck by flyhalf Hannah Stolba and groundings by Kayla Soliday and Kelly Mullen, but Berkeley’s poise and power provided ample opportunities which the All Blues managed well to grab a 19-13 advantage by the end of the first forty with a trio of trys by flyer Ardia Keller, backrow lock Kedra Davis and fullback Lisa Dombrowski, with two-from-three of the scores converted by Blues standoff Ruth Bryson.

The All Blues extended their margin with a dot by openside Frieda Fetuu in the 47th minute and things were looking grim for the home team; but Stolba’s quickly-tapped penalty from five meters out and the #10’s canny crease into goal for her own conversion made the rugby tight and right and the Raptors were four points adrift at minute 51. Glendale regained the lead on a try by blindside Laura Miller at 74’. It was there for Berkeley as the sands flowed, but a numbers penalty reversed possession and a further sticksplitter by Stolba made for final numbers of 28-24 for Raptors and sole possession of first place in the Blue Conference.
