A dominant second quarter has helped North Albany secure their first win of the Great Southern Football League women’s competition this season, kicking three goals to break the game open against Albany.

The Sharks led by a single goal at the first change before the Kangas kicked into gear, booting three goals in the second term, and kept their rivals scoreless to take an 18-point lead into the main break.

Both sides kicked two goals in the second half, but the Kangas had done the damage in the second term as they ran out winners 6.3 (39) to 3.6 (24).
