Ballarat Eureka Strikers put in their best performance of the season against Bundoora, but it was not enough for their first victory of the year.
Bundoora scored after 12 minutes, but the Strikers kept pressing. While many of its impressive plays went unrewarded, Alysha-Grace Reisacher found the back of the net in the 85th minute.
However, a Bundoora goal four minutes later denied any points for the travelling Strikers. Nat Barbara starred for Ballarat.
