Junee has inched closer to the Leonard Cup’s top four with a crucial victory over Wagga United at Rawlings Park on Sunday.

Jaguars’ leading goal scorer Marissa Ward scored both goals for the visitors, sealing the win for Junee in the second-half after the two sides spent much of the game locked at 1-1.

The result bumped Wagga United from third to fourth, after Henwood Park leapfrogged them with a 9-0 thrashing of Young.

Junee now sits just three points outside the top four, but has played two less games than fourth-placed United.
