Match Report Round 1 Sunday April 15th - U12 Girls YELLOW
Welcome all to the first coaches report for 2018, I am please to say the girls have been training well and the skill level has really improved out of sight from last year.
Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played at home on Aanenson Oval, cold, wet and windy conditions for the first game of the season
Today we took on the Prahran with a team of 12 girls. We picked the team in balanced groups over three zones and rotated through positions at each break. 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 Caitlin Voss.
First quarter 2.0.12 to 0.4.4
From the start Sienna was gathering possessions in the middle and Rachel was in also in the thick of the action, Prahran was trying hard and some great defensive work by Caitlin and great tackling pressure from the backline stopped Prahran scoring goals. Straight kicking helped us to a first quarter lead, Harriet leading the way with both goals.
Second quarter 6.0.36 to 0.4.4
The girls all focused and really dominated this quarter. Amelia Murphy showed class kicking a great goal, Caitlin kicked a couple of goals and Savannah was ferocious in getting the ball out of the centre and tackling. Sienna, Bridget and Rachel were all having a red hot go. Holly was, as always, hard at it not giving an inch. The collective defensive pressure all over the ground kept Prahran scoreless and the Colts desire to win the ball gave us an extended lead at half time.
Third quarter 8.3.51 to 0.4.4
The girls were asked to finish the game off in the third, and that they did. Zara was running hard and making the contest, Poppy had a great quarter and Bridget never gave up have work got Bridget a great goal, Sienna also goaled and Ella was on fire. Eliza (having had no sleep the night before due to jetlag (#overseas ski trip) really pushed all day and showed great commitment to the game,
Final quarter 8.3.51 to 1.5.11
Prahran to their credit fought hard and in a seesaw battle through the middle they managed to squeeze in their first goal with a great effort and kick on the run. To the Colts credit we were trying things, by taking the game on, running and bouncing.
Great effort girls, congratulations on the first win of the season.
