South East United earn first win while Beachside forfeit

South East United finally produced the goods when they won their first Southern Championship Summer Cup game yesterday.

United beat Kingborough Lions United 5-1 at home at Pembroke Park in Sorell.

They had done well in their previous games but poor finishing had let them down.

Coach Glenn Roland had told me during the week he was confident his team was improving and the results would come.

Taroona were the other big winners, annihilating Metro 8-0 at North Chigwell.

It must have been a tough baptism of fire for Metro’s new goalkeeper, Indigo Sharp, who trialled with South Hobart late last year before returning to Queensland.

He returned recently and signed for South Hobart, who have sent him on loan to Metro.

Metro coach Mark Broadbent has an uphill battle based on this result and he said he was working hard to change the culture at the club.

University had an easy 6-1 win over Clarence Zebras at Olinda Grove and it seems coach Lachlan Brown is brining some of his ideas to fruition.

South Hobart led Olympia Warriors 5-0 at South Hobart Oval before slackening off near the end and allowing the visitors to score twice.

New Town White Eagles downed Hobart United 3-1 at North Chigwell.

Glenorchy Knights were given a 3-0 win over Beachside as a result of the latter forfeiting.

In the Women’s Summer Cup, New Town White Eagles appear to be in damage control despite losing 9-0 to South Hobart at South Hobart Oval.

Eagles had been obliterated by 16-0 and 15-0 in their two previous games.

Kingborough Lions United established themselves as a potential Summer Cup winner by beating Clarence Zebras 3-0 at Lightwood Park, but Olympia Warriors are probably a slight favourite as they downed Taroona 3-0 at Warrior Park.

I saw the second half of the Eagles v South women's game and south found it hard to break down a stubborn Eagles team. only 3 goals scored in this half and they were crackers.
I think they will go well in their own competition.
South's men's look like they will be more than competitive this season and I think there should be some cracking games for the top NPL clubs.

Walter, do you know who has made the southern championship final or is still in contention? I cannot find updated ladders anywhere.
