Tal­ent on show

Benalla Ensign - - Communityvoice - By Ge­or­gia Smith

Be­nalla’s Becky Web­ster left her mark on Ade­laide Oval on Fri­day.

The tal­ented young­ster was a part of the AFLW un­der-18 All Aus­tralian squad, play­ing a cur­tain­raiser game for the EJ Whit­ten Leg­ends game.

Web­ster said it was an ex­cit­ing oc­ca­sion to play on the turf, with her team run­ning away with the win in front of the Ade­laide crowd.

‘‘In the first quar­ter the rain came down and it was a bit sloppy but after that the in­ten­sity of the game re­ally picked up,’’ Web­ster said.

‘‘I think I played pretty well and got in the best so that was good.’’

After the game, the AFLW un­der-18 All Aus­tralian team was named.

Although Web­ster’s name did not ap­pear this year, the tal­ented lo­cal said it was still a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
