Bill Turner Trophy (Girls) Semi Finals
Jack McLaughlin Field, Edgeworth on Tuesday 7 September, 2010

Cavendish Road State High (Qld) 1 (Ayesha Norrie 71 minute extra time goal) beat Hunter Sports High (NNSW) 0.

By Greg Danvers
Cavendish Road State High, from Brisbane’s South East, was the first team through to the 2010 Bill Turner Trophy Final with a 1-0 win over Hunter Sports High.
Ayesha Norrie sealed the victory with a right foot shot from just inside the penalty area in extra time of the first semi-final.
Hunter Sports High had arguably the better of play in regulation time (60 minutes) but the Queenslander’s found the way to the final with Norrie’s strike five minutes into extra time.
Norrie had a clear cut chance in the opening minute when her strike hit the near post.
Another chance went begging for Cavendish Road from a free kick by Laurenn Brimlow which rattled the crossbar on 50 minutes. Hunter burst into life in the remaining 10 minutes only to be shut down by committed defence from Cavendish Road.
Jemma House, Hunter’s standout striker, had the best chance five minutes from time but could only rattle the side netting.

Westfields Sports High (NSW) 3 (Alana Kennedy 6m, Amy Harrison 9m, Rhianna Pollicina 24m) bt St Clare’s College (ACT) 0.

By Ray Sandell
Westfield Sports High proved much too good for St. Clare’s College and ran out winners three goals to nil.
Westfield dominated the first half but a determined St. Clare’s held on doggedly to keep the score nil all at half time. In fact in one their rare ventures into the Westfield penalty area they had probably the best opportunity to open the scoring when Dimity Herstik ran onto a long clearance and her shot at goal was well saved by Westfield ‘keeper Georgia Rowntree.
The second half saw Westfield take an early lead when Alanna Kennedy’s shot hit the bar and bounced down just inside the goal line. Three minutes later Amy Harrison performed a carbon copy of the first goal following good build up play by the Westfield midfielders.
St. Clare’s kept trying and went close to scoring on two occasions but with five minutes to go Rhianna Pollicina ran on to a great cross from Melissa Carceres to easily score from eight metres out to put the match result out of doubt.
Westfield now play Cavendish Road in the final tomorrow (Wednesday).
