Olympia Warriors easily beat the visiting Launceston City 9-0 to stay 5 points clear of second-placed South Hobart on the PS4 Victory League standings with 13 rounds of the season gone.

The result was surprising because Launceston City had taken a couple of big scalps recently and had won their past two games.{jcomments on}

Olympia Warriors, the leaders of the PS4 Victory League, face a dangerous assignment on Sunday when they entertain fifth-placed Launceston City at Warrior Park at 3pm.{jcomments on}

The Warriors have a 5-point lead over nearest rival South Hobart at the top, but City are on a roll and have won their past two games and will be an unpredictable opponent, even though they trail Olympia by 12 points.
