  • Match report Sunday 5th August

    Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division travelled to Beaumaris with a full squad of 13 players, Amelia Murphy returning from a few weeks off.

    The team remained unchanged and ready to take on the 4th position Beaumaris in another must win game to keep our chances of finishing on top of the ladder alive. Beaumaris needed to win this game to play finals, so this was their grand final and there was no chance they would lye down and let us win!! The weather was good and we kicked into a slight wind in the first quarter.

    Structures

    Today we kept the same starting structure as last week: an important part of our girls development is to understand the team structure and their individual roles with in the team. Playing your role for the team gives the team a better chance of success.

    Backline

    We looked at the Beaumaris players and their individual abilities to kick goals, it looked like they had 4 main goal scorers and we need to stop them, the back line where made aware of who they had to stop.

    Centres

    Another big job to do in the centre, we needed to win the ball and drive forward or apply pressure to the opposition so that their effectiveness was limited and under pressure going forward.

    Forwards

    We need to score and the girls where up and about; Holly, Poppy, Harriet and Rachel needed to do the job for us.

    Q1

    We applied pressure and intensity at the contest, we had winners all over the ground and the ball was continually moving forward into our attacking zone. 3 goals 2 points could have easily been 5 straight as we had easy chances to convert, great quarter and game in control.

    Q2

    The second quarter was much the same, we had the slight breeze and continually moved forward into attack yet out conversion was poor resulting in 1 goal 5 points for the quarter. We had all the play and should have had a great half time lead, instead we left the door open for the opposition and a sniff at winning this game.

    Q3

    We spoke about the third quarter being the “premiership quarter” and a must win quarter, this is a quarter where we can put the game beyond doubt if we attack and score. Beaumaris had other ideas and instead they upped the intensity and won many contested balls and pushed forward with the breeze time and time again. 5 Beaumaris goals to Colts 1 had the Sharks up n about at three quarter time…it was game on for the last.

    Q4

    It was anybody’s game to win and an intense battle played out, the coaches knew that a goal by either team would win the game.

    The resulting arm wrestle ended up with only 1 Colts behind scored for the quarter and both teams contesting hard and applying pressure…

    Summary

    We took the hard way to win this game: we allowed Beaumaris back in the game with poor goal kicking in the second quarter and let them control the game in the third quarter. Both teams gave their all in a thrilling contest in the last, it was super close but still a good 4 point win to the Colts!

    • Match report Sunday 29th July

      Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played top of the table St Peters at home on Aanenson oval. St Peters had only lost 1 game this season and last time we met it was a very close game until they kicked the last couple of goals late in the last to beat us. Maddy was in for her first proper Yellow game whilst Sophie was a late out with a rolled ankle.

      Today we needed a win to keep our chances of finishing on top of the ladder alive.

      The wind was hideous and blowing hard across the ground, we would need to be focused to have a chance.

      Structures

      For the first time this season we set up with structure and picked our best starting line up, the plan was to stick with the starting line for the duration and allow the girls to own their positions and work with in the game plan. We will be setting up with this type of structure for the remaining home and away gams in preparation for the finals series.

      Backline

      We knew that St Peters had 3 key forwards capable of winning the game so a massive task was set for the defenders.

      Savannah (captain), Caitlin, Frankie and Maya had the job in defence all day. Not many times in footy you can call a clean sheet as a defender….0 points scored against, let me say that St Peters are no push overs, so it shows the commitment the defenders had and the great job that was done by all….intense pressure applied won us the ball back every time.

      Centres

      The other way to stop a team scoring is “STOP THE SUPPLY” and get the ball forward.

      Maddy, Siena, Zara and Ella were all outstanding. Ella and Zara were chipping in running all over the square getting multiple possessions, Maddy was fast, showed great skills and Siena consistently won the ball and pushed forward, even with a very good player trying to tag her. Harriet had a last quarter run in the middle and worked so hard even with a corked thigh, great job.

      Forwards

      There is no point defending hard and stopping the supply if the forwards don’t take their opportunities, we are lucky to have such great talent across this team.

      Holly (3) and Poppy (1) were in everything, Harriet (2) was electric and Rachel (2) did a great job. Siena going forward late chipped in for (1) that could have been 3 but for the wind!!

      In summary:

      The team stayed in starting positions for the whole game, one late change in the last quarter with Siena moving forward and Harriet into the middle. EVERYONE did their job and the team was successful….simply awesome

    • Match Report Round 11
    •  

      Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played at Hampton Rovers on a windy day. Harriet and Amelia were both out and this gave Maya an opportunity for her second run in Yellow. We played with 12 + 1 players including 2 U10’s Imogen and Grace, rotating off the bench. The playing surface was hard as concrete and was very poorly set up, there was also a strong cross field wind that affected the game greatly.

      Hampton started fast and hard, the tackling and physicality of this game was apparent from the first bounce. Port Colts struggled with the conditions and Hampton managed to score the first goal.

      The second quarter had the Colts on the back foot defending an onslaught by the bigger and more aggressive Rovers, Colts managed to keep them goalless for the quarter, unfortunately we couldn’t work the ball forward into the wind and we didn’t manage to score at all.

      We spoke at half time about working hard to force our way into this game, we needed to lift the intensity and tackle hard, but it seemed no matter what we tried we couldn’t win the ball cleanly and seemed to always be under pressure when in possession. The third quarter score reflected the battle with the single behind to the Colts being the only score.

      It came down to an all or nothing last quarter and it just didn’t work, Hampton had their tails up and were able to stop the Colts in our tracks. 2 late goals to Hampton including a goal on the siren made the deficit look bigger than it was; we had just been out muscled and lost our second game for the season! Hampton win by 23 points.      

      During the game we had several injuries with Poppy suffering a head clash, Caitlin got a knock on the knee, Maya a kick in the shin, Zara was also ridden hard into the ground during a tackle, it was good to see all of the girls gritting their teeth and keep going, giving their all.

      Imogen and Grace played really well, well done girls and Maya in her second outing is already showing good skills and hard running at the football.

      Next week we have a massive game at home against St Peters, this is the game of the season for us and we will need to bounce back and have a real crack to win.

      We should be nearly back to full strength and looking forward to testing ourselves against another strong side. 

      Go Colts …

    • Round 10

      No report

      Match Report Round 9 Sunday June 17th
    • Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played St Kilda Junction on a cold, wet and windy day. We had 12 girls selected to play in Yellow division including 2 U10’s Emma and Claudia. The captain for the day was Zara.

      Today was all about the elements, wind, side ways rain and freezing cold made the conditions hard and a tough opposition team that came out firing. 

      It was just plain miserable at the start of the game: it was raining and there was a cold strong wind blowing away from the clubhouse. St Kilda won the toss and kicked with the wind, we started with 3 U10’s on the field all of who had just endured the previous U10 game in the same conditions, these girls had to be super freezing cold and very wet but they where up for another game!!

      The Saints had a crack with the wind and managed to kick the opening goal and go on to control the ball in their forward 50 for most of the quarter. It turned out the wind was even stronger than we expected and the wet conditions made for a slippery ball.

      Desperate defending held strong to limit the onslaught to an 8 point Saints lead at quarter time. 

      To be honest it was hard to see the play in the second quarter, the rain came down so hard we couldn’t see the players from the centre wing. It was scrambled football, slipping and sliding, players hiding behind goal posts, the opposition wanting to call the game off….but the Colts soldiered on, we kept control of the ball all quarter kicking multiple goals and taking 16 point lead into the clubhouse at half time – not our normal procedure to go inside, yet this day we needed to warm up the girls as most of them had lost the feeling in their hands!!

       

      The third quarter we needed to maintain our focus and keep pressure on the ball, it was a close contest and we wanted the score advantage coming home with the wind on the last. The saints managed to double their quarter time score in this quarter, whilst again keeping the desperate Colts scoreless. 

      The third quarter break was to be the hardest for the girls, by this stage the girls had been soaking wet for nearly an hour playing on a windy day that was 8c (that actually felt more like 2c)

      It didn’t slow the girls down, complete determination, super efforts and contribution from every player allowed the Colts to double the half time score and win by a convincing 28 points.

      No one scored at the clubhouse end of the ground for the entire game….that paints a picture of the harsh conditions!

    • Match Report Round 8 Sunday June 3rd - U12 Girls YELLOW
  • Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played Prahran on a perfect day winters. We had 12 girls selected to play in Yellow division.

    This top of the table clash against the undefeated Prahran team was going to be our biggest test for the season so far and potentially a preview to the finals later in the year. The captain for the day was Caitlin.

    From the first bounce the Colts girls were on and we pushed forward into attack on multiple occasions. The centre line showed poise and class to dominate, whilst the defenders stood strong and rebounded Prahran’s forward plays keeping them scoreless, Colts forwards capitalised on multiple entries, forwards leading to space and 2 great marks and goals to Amelia Murphy gave us a handy 14 point lead at quarter time.

    The second quarter Prahran started strong and really worked the ball well with run and carry, these girls have some quality and they booted three quick goals to take the lead and show this was not going to be easy. Credit to the colts who kept working hard and kept the pressure up, a late goal to Savannah gave us a 2 point half time lead.

    The third quarter we needed to maintain our pressure and keep attacking the ball, Prahran looked dangerous and capable of kicking away as they had some speedy and skilled players stepping up, the midfield battle was intense.

    Colts managed more forward entries, yet our goal kicking inaccuracy had let us down with 1.2 for the quarter to Prahran 1 goal.

    What we did see this quarter was what I called the play of season so far: started with a great tackle and turn over, some run and carry through the centre with multiple handballs, resulted in us moving the ball quickly from defence to attack and then a great mark and goal up forward, simply fantastic to watch.

    The last quarter was going to be a cracker: the Colts held a slight lead but the game was definitely still in the balance. We couldn’t defend such a small lead so we still needed to score to win. The starting positions were looking good Siena, Holly, Harriet and Zara had the job in the centre, we needed forward entries and it was a hard ball to win. Rachel, Amelia, Sophie and Poppy had the big job down back, we needed to stop Prahran from scoring and rebound their entries.

    Up forward we needed Caitlin, Savannah, Ella and Frankie to kick the winning score…..wow what a result, fast tempo, crunching tackles, magnificent skills on show and Savannah making the most of opportunities and kicking the winning goals.

    Even though we had a close game on our hands the coaches managed to rotate all the girls through each position whilst maintaining a balanced competitive side. This is showing us how diverse and dynamic our girls are becoming, all of them willing to play anywhere at any time for the team, defending fiercely and then the ability to move forward and kick goals, super effort and a great game.

    • Match Report Round 7 Sunday May 27th - U12 Girls YELLOW

    Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played Beaumaris on a perfect day with a slight wind blowing towards to the clubhouse. We had 13 girls selected to play in Yellow division, including 2 U10’s Claudia and Emma.

     The mood of the team was a great today; the girls were switched on a ready to go.

     Captain for the day was???, we won the toss and licked with the wind.

     The first quarter gave an indication that the Beaumaris girls had some talent. Colts how ever took control in the later half of the quarter and kicked away with three goals. The Kogler sisters combined in a great passage of play with linking handballs from Harriet to Claudia and back to Harriet and a great goal on the run. Seconds later Harriet found herself clear in the goal square…somehow she managed to hit the post from 5meters out!!.

    The second quarter was into the wind so we asked the girls to run and carry, look for players in space and pass to a lead. Great pressure all over the ground and multiple entries into the forward line allowed us to kick 4 great goals into the wind and set us up with a 39 point half time lead. It is this type of pressure football that breaks the hearts and will of the opposition teams.

    The third quarter we wanted the girls to put the game beyond doubt by applying continual pressure and helping teammates out with talk, we reset back to starting structures and the girls responded with another solid start and the first goal. Beaumaris did manage a great goal on the run late to level the quarter.

    The last quarter was a great contest as well, both teams lifting and putting on a great show, resulting in a scoreless drawn contest in the last.

    Colts had the energy and proved to be too good in the end. Poppy made a contest again and again, holding the ball up and really showing her determination with second and third efforts….these pressure plays didn’t allow the Sharks to get close to goal…awesome stuff.

    Emma and Claudia again showed they are not out of place playing with the bigger girls and kept going right to the end and both played awesome games.

    Caitlin and Sophie both played well and won the competition against their opponents time and time again, whilst Rachel and Poppy were strong in defence as well as dangerous up forward, both kicking multiple pressure goals.

    Harriet was switched on from the start and was tackling hard, getting multiple possessions and kicking goals.

    Frankie worked hard and got involved in several pressure plays and was also looking very good in the ruck competition.

    Savannah stood tall on one leg and pushed through the pain barrier with a solid game, Siena was swooping on loose balls all over the ground, great run, carry and long bombs forward.

    Zara, Holly and Ella look dangerous all day and worked the midfield really well, great game you guys. Ella’s tackle on Beaumaris #5 (their best player) was perfect! The return tackle on Ella was ferocious, yet Ella shrugged it off and walked away….we had won the battle today!

  • Match Report Round 6 Sunday May 20th - U12 Girls YELLOW 
  • Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division returned to Centenary Park, St Peters home ground for round 2 for a late afternoon match, it had been raining so it was wet but calm. We had 13 girls selected to play in Yellow division.

Last year round 2 we lost by over 12 goals without managing a score, St Peters are a massive club and have some great players so we knew that today was going to be a big test.

The mood of the team was a little flat pre game, we didn’t seem to be switched on like we usually are. Maybe the late afternoon time slot or some players having a late night prior to the game had a few of the girls a little flat?? We must all remember how important it is to rest, sleep and eat well prior to a game of football, football is a taxing game and to be a great player and do your duty for your team you need to be prepared properly.

Captain for the day was Ella.

No wind, no rain but it was a greasy surface for the first bounce…

St Peters immediately applied pressure, tackling hard and strong, the centre square was going to be a tough contest today.

The first quarter was a battle, both teams working hard in the middle, Colts managing to score a couple of goals before St Peters rallied and got one back late in the quarter.

The second quarter was even tighter, St Peters hitting the scoreboard and looking dangerous as they ran forward in numbers.

The third quarter was our best for the day, 3 great goals (Poppy chipping in for at least 2 of them), we looked dangerous and threatened to run away with the game. Then St Peters hit back with 2 late goals to show they were not going away.

7 points down at ¾ time and the Colts were asked to dig deep and turn up the pressure; we started well and scored the first goal and levelled the scores with 6 minutes to play.

Bigger bodies in all zones had the Colts their work cut out all over the ground. The leagues leading goal kicker #7 was standing strong, we didn’t manage to lay a tackle on her and she was showing us what a super boot she had, thumping kicks from 35 meters out, managing 2.5 for the game!!

Great win by St Peters, they showed us how tackling pressure, running with and supporting each other wins games of football.

Colts didn’t have energy to get there in the end.

Colts need to re group and understand we cannot just turn up and win games; we need to be ready, focused and fired up from the start.

Match Report Round 5 Sunday May 13th - U12 Girls YELLOW 

Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played the unknown Hampton Rovers at home on beautiful day with a breeze, 12 girls were selected to play in Yellow division.

This was shaping up as a massive first game against an unknown and upcoming team in Hampton rovers, these girls and been dominating Division 2 with some big wins.

Pressure acts would be our secret weapon, the pre game talk was all about helping our team mates out and to pressure the opposition into giving us the ball back…it would take lots of talk and first, second and third efforts to win this game.

Amelia Murphy was selected as the captain on the back of a great game last week.

From the start the girls applied intense pressure, fierce tackling with strength and not allowing the Rovers to break free. The ball was played mainly in the Colts forward half with repeated entries that gave us a 2 goal early lead. Siena was on fire wining countless balls out of the centre with Zara and Rachel giving great support, our forwards also had a red-hot crack and Harriet was applying intense forward pressure. To the Rovers credit they stayed in the game and after a couple of late forward entries the Rovers ended the quarter with a great goal against the breeze.

Second quarter we asked the girls to work hard, run and carry the ball into the wind, use their skill with quick handballs and support each other by talking loud. Colts kept the pressure on and we dominated the centre and forward entries. The few times the Rovers went forward our defence stood strong, Frankie and Holly tackled and won the ball, whilst Rachel was providing great support out back on the last line, repeated marks, playing on a long bombs out of defence…just awesome.

The third quarter was the quarter where the coaches asked the girls to put the game beyond doubt with continued hard work and effort.

Poppy and Savannah started to get into the game and take control, whilst Caitlin was showing that a few weeks off with an ankle injury wasn’t going to slow her down. Heaps of pressure, lots of forward entries and multiple goals where capped off with a great mark and goal from Sophie Johnson on the siren. This gave the Colts a 7 plus goal lead at three quarter time and broke the hearts of the Rovers.

The last quarter we asked the girls to work hard until the end, Ella J and Amelia were leading by example, great skills and ability to get the contested ball, whilst Rachel was still dominating down back and not allowing the opposition to score in a possible best on ground performance!

Great win, we didn’t give up and we all kept going till the end.

Match Report Round 3 Sunday April 29th - U12 Girls YELLOW 

Port Colts U12 girls Yellow division played the unknown East Malvern at home on beautiful day, we selected 12 girls to play then had a last minute request from the opposition coaches to play more girls. So with help from 5 x U12 girls Blue team that had already played and U10’s Emma and Claudia, we ended up playing with 16 players on the field in a 5 – 6 – 5 zone formation.

The girls immediately dominated the somewhat congested centre square and gained multiple forward entries and scoring movements. The defensive umbrella structures set up by the centres looked good and stood firm; this resulted in the ball remaining in our forward fifty for the whole quarter, East Malvern unable to gain one forward entry for the quarter.

Big tackles, desperate acts and intense pressure was the pre game instruction from the coaches, the girls didn’t let down and imposed themselves on the game in the first 12 minutes...4.5.29 to 0 at quarter time could have easily been an eight goal lead with some better kicking at goal.

Siena and Savannah’s centre work was great to watch as was the pressure acts from the smaller girls, Emma and Claudia were making the contest tough and winning the ball, Madi was learning all about the intensity of Yellow division…it was hard and tough at times all the way through the second quarter. East Malvern had come to play and the pressure was mounting.    

Holly, Amelia and Rachel all chased down the ball, gaining possessions and getting kicks, Poppy, Zara and Georgia were all having great games with multiple chases, run and carries.

The third term was super tight, both teams tackling hard and not giving an inch…nearly a scoreless quarter!

Our 7 girls playing their second game had started to slow up a little allowing East Malvern back in with a couple of goals in the last, Colts came close with Savannah playing on one leg and hitting the post only meters out, needless to say the game was never in doubt and it was good effort girls, congratulations on another win.

The game was played in great spirits and the Colts attack on the ball from the start was the deciding factor. We simply wanted the ball more than the opposition. The forward entries for Brighton were few and far between (if any). Harriet was up to usual tricks in kicking multiple goals, great effort.

Great to see big tackles form new girls Madi and Sedona, the pressure that these strong tackles puts on opposition is immense and creates many turnovers. Savannah’s centre work was great and the pressure acts when we don’t have the ball was winning us the ball back time and time again…its pretty simple,,, the more pressure we apply the more the ball comes back. 

Usual suspects Ella J, Rachel and Siena were all having great games, multiple run and carries, long penetrating kicks and intense defensive pressure, well done girls you are really helping the new girls see how its done.

At half time I asked the team if they could go out and double the score in the third quarter, it was complete domination in this quarter. 

Frankie, Coco and Sophie are showing great form and desire to win the ball, Coco bravely going back out with an injured finger…well done. Zara, Amelia and Elisa all showed plenty of dash and showed us how the quick linking handballs to a team mate can open up the game and result in scoring opportunities.

In the last quarter we gave Brighton an extra player in each zone in an attempt to even up the game, even with three extra players the Colts stood tall and kept the Brighton forward entries to 0. 

Great effort girls, congratulations on another fine win. 

Coaches best: Sienna, Harriet, Ella, Frankie and Savannah

Next week: another big game versus the unknown East Malvern at home 1.10pm

 

 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.

Coaches best: Rachel, Amelia, Bridget, Sienna, and Savannah

Goal scorers: Sienna, Harriet 2, Bridget, Caitlin, Amelia, ??? (Sorry I can’t remember the other goal kickers!)
