MATCH REPORT ROUND 10 - Sunday July 14th
Mail :: match report round 9 v South Melbourne Districts @Home
It was a very wintery start to the 2nd half of the season as we took on Hampton Rovers at home.
Ruby (captain for the day) won the toss and we elected to run with wind in the first qtr. Hampton had a strong midfield which put us under pressure right from the start, with the ball regularly going in our defensive third. We hung on though in defence though with both Holly and Farrah providing strong contests at the back and rebounding the ball back into our midfield. So despite being under the pump for much of the qtr, we hit qtr team only 8 points down.
The next two qtrs then evened out quite a bit, we started to win more of the ball in the midfield and got a more run and carry into our game. The game though was a bit of arm wrestle with lots of stoppages and while Hampton had more forward entries we defended really well and also were starting to get our own forward entries. There was a couple of passages of play where we looked dangerous and Ophellia went close to scoring in the 3rd qtr as the ball was propelled deep into the goal square from a classic “Tess long bomb” but unfortunately our forward pressure wasn’t quite at the level it usually is and we remained goalless.
At three quarter team we were still well in the game and only 10 points down. Grace and Maddie dig deep in the midfield in the 4th qtr both with relentless running and tackle pressure. After some great defending all day, Hampton managed to kick three late goals with the wind.
Overall it was a gutsy effort to hang in with what was a really good team for 3 qtrs, with some good lessons learnt about needing to maintain concentration, organisation and defensive pressure throughout all 4 qtrs.
Coaches awards went to Ophellia for some great efforts in her first game and to Grace and Maddie for their run, carry and work around the ball

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!
