Eden’s Talia Westley stuns the Inter-Lions with a thrilling bicycle kick over her head in Southern’s 2-0 win last week.

Eden’s Talia Westley featured heavily in the Southern under 15s 2-0 win over the Inter-Lions last week. 

The young soccer star booted a “bicycle kick” from in front of the opposition’s goals. 

Unfortunately, it soared just centimetres too high of the cross bar. 

The match was the third away game in a row for the Southern team and was played at Concord Oval, Sydney. 

Early penalty kicks and corners proved fruitless for both sides, but Talia again kept pressing play forward for the Southern squad. 

Talia fired off some excellently placed crosses, which scored the team three corner kicks in a row. 

Maddi Goulding managed to capitalise on the third corner when she lifted the ball metres into the air and it spiralled slowly down towards the goal and into the net.

The kick provided Southern its first goal of the match just before half time. 

When play resumed, the momentum was still with the Southern side. 

The team’s second goal was scored within the opening minute by Isabella Dolan. 

Maddi Goulding crossed to Mariah Peever, who beat the defenders and sent the ball Isabella’s way to slot the goal. 

 The girls continued their onslaught of attack on the Lions’ goal, controlling possession .

Talia continued her solid work, combining in plays with Jazmine Zabel and Sophie Heath. 

Meanwhile, Talia’s dominant performance earned her the players’ player award for the match. 

The Southern side now has a week off with some players having representative duties. 

After the convincing win, the club is sitting second in a bid to enter the Premier League 1 for next year. 

The club is also looking to upgrade its grounds at South Nowra.
