SUSAN Campbell and Virginia Ritchie guided the Mittagong ladies reserves to victory on Saturday.

Campbell and Ritchie both scored goals in their side’s 2-1 win over Yerrinbool at Ironmines Oval.

The game marked round one of the Highlands Soccer Association’s ladies reserve grade competition.

Campbell hit the back of the net to help Mittagong take a 1-0 lead at half time.

Ritchie and Yerrinbool’s Kelsea Moore then traded goals in the second half as the home side held on for a 2-1 win.

The match was delayed for a significant period after Mittagong’s Monique Byrnes suffered an injury.

Byrnes was taken to Bowral Hospital with a sprained ankle.

Mittagong manager Jenny Cavanagh said it was disappointing news in a good performance by her side.

Cavanagh said the performance was highlighted by strong passing from her team.

The two Moss Vale ladies reserve grade teams faced off at Yerrinbool Oval on Saturday.

The Moss Vale White recorded a 2-0 win over Moss Vale Black in hot conditions.

Ali Kroger and Irene Fava found the back of the net for Moss Vale White.

Winning coach Stuart Davidson said it was a good contest on Saturday.

Davidson said his team’s best players were Fava, Bec Goodwin and Claire Thompson.

“I am happy with our performance, the girls played really well,” he said.

“The match was played in good spirit.”

In the other reserves game, Crookwell recorded a 7-0 win over Robertson.
