Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls v Maroubra Saints
Round 4, Sunday 30 April
WOW! First home game of the season at Drummoyne Oval, and the playing ground was in absolutely perfect condition, topped off by sunshine aplenty.
With many of the girls returning back from their school holidays, spirits were high.
The first quarter was played hard, Gabby, Afeni and Imogen worked hard defensively, getting quite physical right from the start. The opposition was the only team to score in this period.
Second quarter saw Drummoyne keep Maroubra from scoring any points for the period. The U12 players, backing up for U15s, started to come into the game with Laura providing some impressive footwork with the ball in hand up in the mid-field. Jessalyn had some great results in the ruck, coming away with the ball on several occasions. Still no luck with any points on the score board.
After the half time break, the girls ran on recharged and keen for the ball. The mid-field efforts of Nurahne were relentless on the ball. On several occasions there were clearing kicks that very nearly put the team into a scoring opportunity.
In the final quarter the scoring of points still eluded them. Imogen continued to put her physical efforts into some heavy shepherding. The girls played to the final horn, in a proud and good sportsmanlike manner.
