Today the U15 girls took on Lismore in the Prelim. final held at Murbah. In our last encounter this team had mercy ruled us. With full numbers for the first time this season we knew the result would be a different story. The first quarter saw some big tackles being laid. The girls gave as good as they got, tackling hard and stood up to the very physical Lismore side. In an arm wrestle of a match the first quarter saw Lismore 1 point up. Defensively both teams made it hard to score. By the half time break scores were level. Lismore hit the lead at the end of the third. The girls dug deep in the last and were within a goal with minutes to go. We had the ball in our forward 50 but unfortunately the siren beat us and Lismore got the win in a nail biter.
Better players Ella Cornelius, Inka Shillings & Toby Chapman.
It has been a pleasure to coach these girls, we are so proud of how they have improved and of their sportsmanship on the field.
Thanks to all the parents for their help and support each week.
Look forward to seeing you all at presentation day on Sunday 17th of September 10am to 12 at Round Mountain Cabarita.
Another do or die match this weekend for the U15 girls. We take on Lismore in the prelim final at Murwillumbah. (John Rabjones oval ) Please arrive at 10am for an 11am game. We have our fingers crossed that all girls can play, if so it will be this first time this season that we will have 18 on the field. Please txt me to confirm your playing.
Last weeks performance was fantastic, lets play like that again and I’m sure we will be rewarded. The U12 boys are playing the match before us for those that would like to get there early to cheer them on.
Our U12s started slow against superior opposition today and were down by 5 goals at the first break. The boys performed well in the remaining three quarters to match it with he opposition but went down by 10 goals. With key players to still come back into the side we get the second chance against Ballina next Sunday for a place in the Grand Final. Best players today were Hugo Bernet, Ben Matthews, Isaac Douglas, Cameron McLean, Taj Doherty and Angus Lindsay
The U15 Girls took on Brunswick today in the 3 vs 4 Semi Final- a do or die match. Our girls got off to a slow start with Bruns kicking the first goal, but then I am pleased to say our girls kicked into gear and didn’t take their foot off the accelerator till the final siren. We believe that the girls really came together as a team to run out very convincing winners. Many girls really stepped it up today. Better players Georgia, Makayla, Ella, Inka, Keshia. Fierce tackling from Jade and Yolo. Great overhead marking from Chelsea. Goal kickers Tobi 1, Ella 1, Georgia 3 and Makayla 4. Thanks again to the U 11 girls Amelia and Milly for putting their bodies on the line against the bigger girls, well done.
One more hurdle to get over next week to make the Granny which we know is very achievable all we need to do is to be there once again in full strength and play as a team. (Please note we were Byron Bay on the scoreboard)
Great work today girls!
See you all at training.
Congratulations to our equal Best and Fairest Inka Shilling and Ella Cornelius and our runner up Makayla Sekac. It was extremely close contest every round with these girls. Thank you to all the players and their families for coming last night to be a part of our vote count.
I would also like to thank the committee and their partners who volunteer their time and energy to run our successful junior club, it’s much appreciated.
Good luck to both the U12 Boys and our U15 Girls in the Semi Finals tomorrow.
