It was scorers delight as seven Young Matildas got their name on the score sheet with an emphatic 9-0 victory against Timor-Leste.
In a display where the Young Matildas dominated possession, the use of corners were utilised to break down a Timor set up which saw every player defending in their own penalty area for large portions of the match.
Against a packed Timor defence, scoring a goal from open play early on wasn’t going to be easy.
The Young Matildas did find success early through Cortnee Vine, who opened the scoring for the side as the ball landed at Vine’s feet after Emily Condon’s cross wasn't cleared by the Timor defence.
Corners were to be the Young Matildas solution to finding goals for the rest of the first half, a reply to Timor’s defensive wall.
Vine quickly doubled her tally for the match, while Tory Tumeth also found success off a first half corner, giving the Young Matildas a three goal lead at half time.
The second half was to be a repeat of the first.
The Young Matildas continued to have the vast majority of possession, looking to attack but with the Timor defence tiring more success was found.
After discovering early in the half Timor goalkeeper Agostinha Nogueira was comfortable dealing with the long shot, the Young Matildas resorted once again to corners.
Amy Sayer got the scoring started in the second half by lobbing the goalkeeper from a deep corner ten minutes into the half.
Kyra Cooney-Cross quickly added to the tally to bring the Young Matildas five goals ahead, with a shot hit low and hard into the corner of the near post.
In case Timor wasn’t aware of the threat the Young Matildas pose from corners, two more goals came were to come from corners, with Sayer getting her second and Susan Phonsongkham getting a head on the end of a ball bobbling around the box from a corner for the seventh goal of the night.
With the clock winding down, but still hungry for more goals, the final two of the night for the Young Matildas were a result of direct play.
A delightful chip in over the defence by Emily Hodgson, gifted Rachel Lowe a goal, whilst Karly Roestbankken finished the nights scoring, after some nice combination play found Roestbankken with space between the centre backs to get the Young Matildas ninth goal.
The victory puts the Young Matildas into second behind Thailand with a game in hand.
Their next opponent being Cambodia on Friday at 7pm.
