It was a bright sunny day at Drummoyne Oval in preparation for the 1.30pm kick off. A good turnout with almost a full contingent of girls for a top of the table clash.
The first quarter saw great enthusiasm from the Drummoyne Power girls, but it was Southern who shot to an early lead kicking two goals and two points to lead 14 nil. The quarter was drawing to a close, a minute to go on the clock and “new girl” Cara stepped up and scored her first goal in her first game for the team. Q1 DP 6 v SP 14
Quarter two was a real arm wrestle between the two teams, SP jumped out of the box with two goals and DP only managed two behinds for the quarter. Q2 DP 8 v SP 27
Quarter 3, the championship quarter, saw both teams giving it their all. SP again was quick to score with three goals in the early part of the quarter. Zara, our under 12 fill in player, saved three consecutive goals. DP never gave up kept pushing and scored two goals in succession again by Cara. Q3 DP 24 v SP 47
Quarter four was another very tight tussle between two teams not giving an inch and shoulders thrown everywhere. A very low scoring quarter that saw SP kick only one goal and a few behinds to win the game. Q4 DP 24 v SP 56
It was a good effort all round from DP. The and didn’t give up throughout the whole game with quarters three and four a standout effort from all the girls. Special mention and thanks to all our under 12 players for doubling up.
