Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls v Western Suburbs
Round 5, Sunday 7 May
A warm welcome to new player Miranda.
Birthday wishes to Afeni – we couldn’t miss it, there were balloons and Happy Birthday was enthusiastically sung in the change room after the game!
Acting coach Jeremy proclaimed this the strongest game for the U15 girls to date. The team played really well with the final score of 18 Drummoyne Power to 17 Wests Magpies reflecting a hard fought victory.
The first quarter began with the Magpies scoring two goals in quick succession, soon followed by a goal by Hazel against the wind. After that our girls really stepped up the defence and pressure, allowing the opposition to score only two more points in the remaining three quarters. Some great chest marks were taken by Nurahne, Lucinda, Hazel, Cheneale, Laura, Gaby and Afeni.
The second quarter was decisively won by Power, keeping the pressure on and not allowing the Magpies to add to their score. Consistent in their strong form our girls won the third and fourth quarters, adding five more points to the scoreboard. Laura scored a great goal with a big left kick. Nurahne showed consistent form throughout with some good runs, tackles and marks. Kyza and Lucinda both covered a lot of ground and together with Afeni were strong tacklers.
Our U15 girls seem to be hitting their stride and we look forward to them continuing to show us their form and grit.
Drummoyne Power defeated Western Suburbs Magpies 2.6.18 to 2.5.17
