- Match Result: Win
Q1 Q2 Q3 Final Score Us 3.4 6.7 7.8 9.10.64 Them 0.1 0.3 2.4 5.5.35
We came out blazing with 3 goals in the first quarter and matched this with another 3 in the second quarter, a fantastic start.
We held Oakleigh to no goals in the first half. A great effort.
Some special individual efforts: It was Hannah’s first game – she killed it, Clare won every tap with a great on ball clearance combination with
Sam, Lizzie and Maddie (who was constantly falling over and looking like a gymnast) Meg the rising star showed strong hands in the air and Liv Y showed relentless desire to always back her team mates and go in hard.
Oakleigh came back hard in the second half and won the third quarter with 2 goals to our 1. They dominated possession and started to have control of the stoppages
In the 4th quarter they kept us on our toes with another 3 goals to our 2. Our full back Matilda went into the middle and within that time 3 goals were scored. None were scored when she moved back into what she calls her 'house' she runs her house.
It was great to see Tev run out a full game in a while and one of our team highlights include one passage of play in our possession from full back to full forward with a goal. Also Taz took a great mark on the siren and went back and calmly slotted a long range shot.
Thanks to Troy, Mick, Meg, Grace and Kiara for helping.
