YG U14 v Maroubra
Round 5, Drummoyne Oval
With almost a full team this week the girls were ready to play.
The first quarter started strong with our forward pack fighting hard for the ball and the centres having to work hard to stop an attacking Maroubra from scoring. Gabriella, Annie, Maddie M and Charli all stayed strong in defence – with a big mark by Gabriella to spoil a goal from Maroubra. Charli was all over the opposition with a massive smother and tackle to turn the ball over. Showing her versatility as a player, Gabriella also scored the first goal of the game.
In the second quarter, the centres work hard to shepherd and move the ball down to the forwards, with Geena, Charli, Zara, Maia, Cheneale, Kyamara and Natalie digging in to chase every ball and win some tackles. Annie and Kyamara made a few huge tackles to get the ball back to the forwards for Emily and Jasmine, and two big goals by Maia and Nurahne and 5 behinds scored in the 2nd.
The 3rd quarter we were back again with Rihanna and Afeni dominating with some tough marks and big sprints toward the forwards, with Afeni taking a mark to stop another opposition goal.
Laura, Sarah, Zara and Kaia showed great teamwork and drove through a strong Maroubra defence with one goal scored by Laura.
The 4th quarter we were showing some tiredness, but fought on for an amazing 5 goals, scored under intense Maroubra pressure, by Jasmine 2, Rihanna 2, and Afeni.
A great victory to the Drummoyne Power girls, congratulations!
Thank you to all the girls who played for the opposition throughout the game – great sportsmanship!!
