Match Report Round1 Sunday April 15th
Welcome all to the first coaches report for 2018, I am please to say the girls have been training well and the skill level is really improving all the time.
Port Colts U12 girls Green division played at home on Aanenson Oval, cold, wet and windy conditions for the first game of the season
Today we took on the Beaumaris with a team of 12 girls, we had 5 first time players in the team so we new this was going to be a really exciting match. I had requested exemptions for three players from Yellow division (Sienna, Harriet and Ella) in case we were short…and we were 4 players short so we also called on Claudia Kogler from U10’s to make up the team of 12.
We picked the team in balanced groups over three zones, putting an experienced player in each zone to help the new guys out. We then rotated through positions at each break giving everyone a go in all positions. We appointed generals in each group to control each area and make sure the zone was structured and played correctly. Generals for the day were Sienna Farrell (birthday girl), Harriet Kogler and Ella Jamieson.
First quarter Colts 3.0.18 to Sharks 0.0.0
What a great start….the girls all switched on from the first bounce and had a real go. Sienna showed great form with long penetrating kicks, Cath Lee was attacking the ball, and Sedona showed that she was up for the game making some great tackles. Up forward Harriet was showing how its done, little sis Claudia was really having a go as well. A 3-goal lead at quarter time had everyone excited.
Second quarter Colts 6.0.36 to Sharks 1.0.6
Wow, what a quarter of football…. hard tackling pressure was winning us the ball all over the ground, up forward Frankie and Sophie were on fire and looked dangerous. Keira and Leah had some great plays, they never gave up and stayed in the competition, Farrah and Cath kept wining the ball back and getting kicks.
Third quarter Colts 8.2.50 to Sharks 1.1.7
The third quarter was just awesome, the girls showed they get the game of football and continued to impress in all positions. Coco did some great work, Leah had some exciting moments running hard after the ball, Claudia was working hard and pressurizing, Sophie was really having a crack, Kiera and Ella J both got involved, Sienna was still bombing those long penetrating kicks, Farrah was really having a go.
Last quarter Colts 8.3.51 to Sharks 1.2.8
Sienna, Harriet and Ella went down back with Sedona who was showing some great tackling skills and endeavour for a first gamer!! Coco, Frankie and Sophie (the three talls) went into the middle with Kiera and all did a great job by winning the ball back time after time.
Farah, Leah, Cath and Claudia went forward and all worked hard putting plenty of defensive pressure on in the forward line.
What a great first game of football for 2018, congratulations to all on a hard fought 43 point win.
Big thanks to Sienna, Harriet, Ella and Claudia for playing a second game and helping out
