A fast paced and entertaining game was played when top-of-the-ladder Richmond Rovers met second placed Lismore Workers at Richards Oval in Lismore on Sunday. Rovers ultimately won 5-2 with goals scored by Martene Edwards, Katie Parker, Renee Parker and Renee McIntosh, with their best player Hayley McAnelly. Best for Workers was their left back, Nicole Strong, while Sheree Coubrough scored the two goals for Workers.

Meanwhile, Goonellabah played Alstonville at Crawford Park and came away with a 1-all draw. Lucy Pearson scored for Goonellabah and Felicity Kerslake was best on the day for Goonellabah.

Goonellabah had plenty of possession but came away frustrated, not finding the net again on the day. Alstonvilles Courtney Nelson defended brilliantly throughout.

Ballina travelled to Byron Bay, where Byron dominated play, but were only able to win 1-nil courtesy of a goal by Molly Gleeson. The tireless defence of Ballinas Libby Zelpo certainly influenced the score, together with great goal keeping by Micka Hodges. Anna Lele and Kimberley Bell also played well. Best for Byron were Christy Hopley, Rhiannon Moir and Hannah Brown in the midfield.
