Drummoyne Power U15 Youth Girls vs Willoughby Mosman Swans
Round 7, Middle Head Oval
This was supposed to be the weekend of the big wet but Sunday at Mosman was beautiful. The girls had just come off two very close games so were keen to attack the big guns of Mosman.
Chiara did a fantastic job of coaching her first game with the u15s and we were excited to welcome four new players to the team.
The first quarter started off positive with Afeni scoring the first goal but then things started to get a bit tougher for Drummoyne and the heat certainly wasn’t helping!
In the second and third quarters Drummoyne held their own and surprised the opposition with some big kicks from Gabi and Afeni and excellent work by Miranda in the full forwards. Nurahne and Kyza were running machines and took some fantastic leads across the field. Grace, Imogen and Lara showed true grit when surrounded by the opposition and still managed to offload the ball. Roxy and Jaydee did some strong shepherding against players that were at least twice their height.
The Mosman girls were strong and tall but the little Drummoyne team still managed to take them to the ground. The best tackle of the game was when Kyza and Afeni showed no mercy and brought the biggest Mosman player to the ground. Hazel and Geena took some fantastic marks and really helped in the centre-back.
In the final quarter Mosman pulled away and managed to score a couple of last minute goals taking the win. The u15 youth girls have shown amazing skill development over the last couple of weeks and are working together as a team.
Bring on the next game!
