South remain on top of the table after their narrow 2-1 win over Box Hill United at Wembley Park on Saturday afternoon.
South were struggling to find a breakthrough in the first half, with Eliadis’ shot trickling wide of the post in the 25th minute.
The 21-year old was continuing to look dangerous for South, but unable to find the back of the net with a thunderous strike hitting the top of the crossbar in the 31st minute.
South were struggling to find an opening with no one up front able to provide the finishing touches on a Gummer Corner kick inside the box in the 35th minute.
However, the girls were finally able to score their first through Martineau who went clear of the Box Hill defence to put the ball into the back of the net from close range as the girls held a 1-0 lead at half-time.
The girls started brightly in the second half, scoring their second through Greiser who was able to pounce on the ball and trickle it into the back of the net following a blocked shot by Eliadis in the 51st minute.
However, not long after, Guerts was able to peg one back for the home side with a deflection aiding the shot into the back of the net in the 55th minute.
Guerts had a chance to score a brace after her looping shot went just over the top of the crossbar in the 80th minute as the girls held on to secure a narrow 2-1 win at Wembley Park.
The girls will now shift their focus to Heidelberg United when the two teams meet at Lakeside Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
