The ladies were looking particularly resplendent in their new shorts, a fetching retro style boldly defined by the Carey blue and gold ribbon colors.

Sisters united in fashion, we stormed out of our shipping container and piled on the early pressure, stunning our more fancied opponents Marcellin with the first four scoring shots of the match. Unluckily we couldn’t find the major opening. 

Our pressure and work rate was fantastic, Marcellin are an excellent team and despite our dogged defence they managed to sneak occasional goals each quarter from their relentless forward throngs. At this stage of the season they have already developed a formidable system of holding the ball in their forward line and this was a great learning opportunity for us.

To our credit we made them earn every one of their six goals. We tackled hard, ran hard and out muscled them around the packs, they were just a bit more proficient with their ball use.

Our sole goal came in the last quarter and it was spectacular; a long bomb on the run from Georgia who was pinned to the boundary line 40 meters from goal.

We were soundly beaten by Marcellin a few weeks ago at a practice match and this was sound evidence of how far we have come already. Bring on the next game!

Best on the day were Morgy McQueen, Samantha Jane, Maddie Webster, Tarryn Jeffery, Lizzie Hodgetts, Matilda Hubbard, Kirra Tevelein, Liv Yammouni, Steph Bolan and our sole goal kicker Georgia Keramitsis.
