It was another hard fought quarter in the second with another 3 goals to City through Taylah Smith, Paige Mathewson and Ashlee Hayllar giving City a 41 points to 12 lead into the long break.
From there is was a clean pair of heels from the girls restricting the Marlins and cutting off any forward play from Nelson Bay keeping them scoreless in the second half. Tayla Braithwaite kick a goal in the third and as they stars turn for home they held a 40 point lead.
