MATCH REPORT ROUND 3 - Sunday May 12th

Port Colts U14 Girls Blue Division, Round 3, Vampire’s v Colts away

It was Mother’s day and a huge effort by mums to attend and help out on the day, many thanks.

The Vampires where tall and strong, this group of girls was yet another club that has multiple U14 girls teams and can select seasoned players of an older age group to compete in the Blue division.

We had a real struggle for numbers; but with some great recruiting we managed to field a team with last minute recruits in Issy Flood & Georgia Allen returning for the first time from U12 girls last year and new inclusions Tia and Ange in their first games!

It was the overall effort from our young group of determined girls that stood out to me, against the odds our team pressure was fantastic; we gave up height, age, experience, and skill all over the ground yet managed to stay competitive from the best of three quarters – the first half there was nothing in it apart from our ability to finish with a score, the third quarter in particular we really had a crack and kept the Vampires to 1 single goal. Vampires eventually kicked away as we had run out of energy kicking 6 goals in the last.

In summary we had Moments of brilliance, good structure and a never give up attitude.

  1. Defensive kick outs: Our ball movement from defence was impressive; using the new play on rule to maximum effect we moved the ball from our last line onto the wing on several occasions. One play almost resulted in a score with the Vampires not being able to get near us, Ella J combined with Siena and Jess in a well-executed run down the wing and forward entry.
  2. Tackle pressure: every player stood tall, against really tall opposition. Fierce talking and second, third and fourth efforts where noticed by the coaches. In a best on ground performance Harriet was leading the way with multiple pressure acts that created turn overs and opportunities.
  3. Never give up attitude: Caitlin, Mila, Tia and Poppy all gave it their best shot at competing for the ball even when outnumbered, out of breathe and out sized.
  4. In & under: Our smalls pressured the opposition and where always trying hard lead by Emily, Leah, Sedona & Rachel. Relentless ground ball contests, tackles and pressure.
  5. First gamers: Super impressive débuts by Ange and Tia. Ange has an ability to win the contest and powerful left foot that will be very dangerous for opposition teams in the coming rounds, whilst Tia’s effort against bigger bodies shows she was willing to give her best in any competition. Georgia A and Issy Flood came back into the team from the wilderness, courageous as ever as these two just got down to business; it was great to see them return to footy! Maybe (hopefully) we will see more of them in weeks to come!!

 

Next week St Kilda in our last grading game…multiple players coming back in to the side will give us more balance and composure.

See you all at training, Coach Steve
