How good was it to sing the song for the first time this season!
And for a win so well deserved earned through sustained effort, desperation and sheer hard work by our wonderful team.
No doubt we were stirred after a heavy defeat last week but we really did focus hard at training and the match day running, hard tagging and maintenance of our structures really paid off.
Ladies were coming to the bench absolutely exhausted, a testament to their work rate.
Gang tackles aplenty, outlet handballs and hangers were the order of the day. Plus a tremendous effort to reduce our forward line congestion and to set up to make scoring easier.
Our backs continued their great form, making every score for Mentone a struggle, our mids really got on top particularly through Sarah and Gev in the ruck and our forwards, well we would have been happy to kick one goal but to deliver us a winning score was just awesome!
Breaking our duck is a great reward for our pre-season and gives us real confidence for our next game!
Thanks to our helpers on the day, strapper Geoff, Vic on the buzzer, Clare the runner with the mostest, Pete our flag waver, Gev’s Dad Andrew the boundary dasher and Erinna our water gal!
Goals to Little, Tev, Liv O and Ness.
