Early goals gave Park the ascendancy in their round 10 clash but LGSHA fought back hard to ensure the game remained up for grabs in the second half.

Park held firm however to ensure they took home the three points, as Chloe Bunney and Tallulah Gouldthorp were standouts for the winners.

Bunney scored along with Sienna Ball, Paige Ogden and Charlotte Whitfort as Park prevailed in a hard-fought contest.

Gouldthorp and Bunney were well supported by Tessa Wood as their side prepare for a top of the table clash with Redbacks this Saturday.

Natasha Lewis was terrific for LGSHA while experienced pair Renae Parsons and Claire King also had plenty of influence.

Brianna Cunningham and Lewis found the back of the net in a losing affair.
