Zebras lead the herd for an incredible comeback

Hobart Zebras have come out winners in the WSL TAS, coming from three goals down to defeat the Kingborough Lions 4-3. A hat-trick from former Young Matilda Jessie Williams helped put away the Lions away at Lightwood Park. That win will keep their title hopes alive as they keep the pressure on ladder leaders Olympia Warriors.

Natalie Roubickova was the first to score for the day. Roubickova made a great run into the penalty box and hit into the top corner past Zebras keeper Shelley Cook.

Jessie Williams went on to set the tone with a great brace to give the Zebras a confidence boost going into HT.

Zoe Nichols got the equaliser when she spotted Lions keeper Olivia Gardner off her line and chipped it right over her head to make the game 3-3.

William’s notched her hat-trick when she found herself one on one with the keeper and buried it home for the eventual deciding goal of the game.
