The Wanderers were able to switch play effectively and precisely thanks to the awareness of their midfielder Mastrantonio.

Her second goal of the season saw her pass the ball into an empty net. She has Lynn Williams to thank for her delightful goal. Her second goal was a beautiful long range strike into the bottom left corner.
Lynn Williams - 8
Williams said they wanted to start strong, and she was instrumental in doing just that, pulling off an early lung busting run to cut-back to Hamilton.
