Pride fights back for NPL victory

MORETON Bay United led for the first time this season before Western Pride recovered to win 5-2 at Wolter Park on Sunday.

Although out of contention for a top six spot, Pride took positives from their fifth win.

Pride erased some early concerns when player-coach Lorena Maggio scored a double after goals by Courtney Bascunan and Ebony McQueen.

Pride assistant coach Meshelle Ryan praised the Ipswich side's performance after trailing early.

"It was great build-up play again from the back and in the midfield,'' Ryan said. "Just that little bit of finishing would have been a bit better today.''
