YG U14 vs Mosman, Round 4

 YG U14 v Mosman

Round 4, Middle Head Oval

Well, a tough day at the office for our girls.
An Amazonian Mosman team may have intimidated our much younger and less experienced Drummoyne girls… and the final score reflected a good attacking side, with Mosman winning by a significant margin. But score shmore.
OUR GIRLS DID NOT GIVE UP !!! Talk about tenacious …
Annie, as the final line of defence, had some strong saves and marks on the goal line getting the ball quickly out wide and away. Kaia had an unbelievable energy in defence never giving up in wanting that ball just that bit more than the Mosman girls, and Cheneale had some great tackles to relive over dinner that night.
Nurahne, as well, was instrumental in getting the ball out of the way taking a couple of great marks getting us out of trouble. Zara had a touch on the ball helping build her confidence and we were grateful that Natalie swapped the netball for the Sherrin to use some of her experience on the day with some good defence keeping her player out of the game.
Despite feeling a bit under the weather, Maddy M – as always – was a stalwart and – as always – gave 120%.
Rianna, our smallest player, was a standout defending a Mosman girl almost twice her size … unbelievable … no fear.
Laura was in the same boat for most of the game getting her hands on the ball sometimes. She was just that bit faster – being a bit closer to the ground had some advantage !!
Afeni had a passionate game, wanting the ball desperately and running herself just about into the ground – Afeni and Kyamara had strong attacking games helping the ball down our end of the pitch when they could and as always together with Gabriella, being the strong foundations for the whole team.
Maddie H as well used her experience, height (!!) and skill and was a standout winning the rucks on several occasions taking some great marks and getting the ball back to the right team!!
The attacking team did not get a whole lot of action – Charli had some great runs down the pitch to make some ground. Sarah was fundamental in assisting with the points we did score – Jasmine had the honour of scoring our 1 six pointer in the final quarter – such a great way to finish.
Coach Gabby was awesome – encouraging the team throughout the game, helping them become their absolute best in the last quarter.
Great job, girls !!
