INTERNATIONAL will be pleased to have earned the early bragging rights over Blue Lake in the Limestone Coast Football Association women’s competition.

Round 2 of the season kicked off on the weekend and after a solid showing at the pre-season carnival, the clash between Inter and the Rangers was highly anticipated.

The final result was a 3-1 win to the Inter hosts but it did not come without a fight.

Ella Doody opened the game with an early goal and Inter continued to look dangerous in attack leading into half time.

Doody went on to finish her day with two goals, while Evany Rex also found the back of the net.

Aimee Brooks managed to score for the guests in the second half but it was not enough to reel in the margin.

The win now puts Inter on top of the premiership ladder.

The closest game of the round was played away from the Blue Lake city as Millicent hosted Gambier Centrals for an intense arm wrestle.

The teams were forced to share the points at the final whistle after a nil-all draw resulted.

It comes as a positive sign for Millicent as it looks to build on its fourth-place finish in 2021.

For the Lions it will be back to the drawing board as they prepare to face a confident Apollo side next round.

Apollo made the journey to Naracoorte to face the newest addition to the competition and returned home with a 15-0 triumph.

Zoe Brooksby, Daylia Daylia and Isobelle Fewster proved to be a deadly trio and bagged four goals each in an impressive display.

The team will hope to carry that momentum into its meeting with the Lions which should provide a close contest.

Last time the sides met was in the pre-season carnival and the result was a one-all draw.

Inter will look to continue its winning streak when it heads to Millicent, while Naracoorte faces another challenge when it travels to play Blue Lake.

The Rangers will be eager to bounce back from their disappointment against Inter and can be expected to do so in a big way.
