Ballarat Eureka Strikers have started the 2018 season in good style, but face arguably the toughest test of the campaign so far this weekend.

The side must travel to take on Football Federation Victoria women’s state league two north-west ladder-leaders Hoppers Crossing on Sunday.

The home side has won all four of its games this year, netting 22 goals and conceding just one in the process.

Ballarat will tackle Hoppers Crossing on the back of last weekend’s 3-1 success over Yarra Jets, which saw Sophie Emota score a brace and Natalie Barbara net the other.

Sunday’s game is scheduled at Grange Reserve in Hoppers Crossing, with kick-off at 3pm.
