MATCH REPORT ROUND 3 - Sunday May 12th

(2020) Mail :: Inbox

After tough two matches against strong (top age) teams where the girls had acquitted themselves well but not gotten to sing the song, the girls were excited to be taking on local rivals South Melbourne.

Right from the first bounce it was clear that we had brought our pressure game, with our Q1 midfield set-up of Grace, Imogen, Holly and Stephanie dominating from the start. Imogen was dominant in the ruck, with Grace and Holly both getting a lot of the footy and using their run and long kicking to push the ball forward. Captain for the day Stephanie, really enjoyed the challenge of the midfield and laid some great tackles. This intensity was matched by our forwards, with Tess and Bridget snagging goals and super sub Claudia (playing up from U10's) neatly slotting back in alongside her old team mates and showing her customary great attack on the footy. Farrah was also highly prominent up forward, with some great pressure around the football.

The game evened out slightly in the 2nd qtr, with South Melbourne getting a few more forward entries and securing a couple of behinds but we retained the ascendancy through the middle with Maddie and Amelia both prominent, Madera providing her usual zip around the contest and Olivia her trademark tackle pressure (at mostly stayed on her feet!).

 The 3rd was possibly our best qtr of football for the year. We were dominant through the middle, with some excellent run and linking up well into the forward line with a further two goals the inevitable result of sustained forward pressure. We shuffled around our set-up during the final qtr, with Noa enjoying a run through the middle and while the contest evened up we continued to defend strongly and Souths again went goalless for the qtr.

 All in all, a great effort from the girls running out easy winners 34 points to 3 and a nice mothers day treat for all the mothers watching!

Coaches awards for the day went to Maddie for her run and ability to break the game open with that booming left foot of hers, Ruby for a super effort in coming along to play despite being very sick and Steph for setting the tone at the start of the game with her tackle pressure.

Other notable mentions, Bridget for snagging 3 goals and Holly, Grace andTess for their overall influence on the game.


MATCH REPORT ROUND 1 - Sunday May 5th

Round 1 finally arrived and we faced a taller opposition in Prahran JFC.
We measure our game on our run and carry, tackle pressure and long kicking.
Our girls battled hard with the new adoption of the '12 on the field' rule, which created a lot of space for us to be crafty with the ball.
We had the ball in our forward zone for about 20% of the game, but we took every opportunity near the sticks and scored 2 goals straight. Prahran were inaccurate and scored 2 goals 5 behinds for the day, with their 2 goals kicked in the final quarter to take the lead.
Award winners were Amelia for a 'captains game' and best on ground, Tully for her work in defence and Farrah for her goal.
Round 2 we're heading to Beaumaris and looking forward to another day of fun footy!
