Win­ning for­mula con­tin­ues for Old Girls

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Carly Laden

The Old Girls have con­tin­ued to re­main un­de­feated with a fourth straight win on Tues­day, May 29.

Al­though there was an ini­tial strug­gle, it looked as though it was go­ing to be an even match-up with Flames.

The Old Girls built an early lead thanks to Christie Milenkovic and Cor­ryne Bur­nett start­ing in goals, al­though the Flames be­gan to step up the de­fence to keep the mar­gin to five points at quar­ter-time.

The Flames got off to a great start in the se­cond, with Lau­ren John­ston scor­ing many goals.

How­ever, the Old Girls con­tin­ued to ex­tend their lead de­spite some pass­ing er­rors and an in­jury to Bur­nett late in the quar­ter.

Fol­low­ing the main break, the Old Girls’ run con­tin­ued, with Milenkovic step­ping up as goal shooter and Ni­cole Ren­dell step­ping in as goal at­tack.

Al­though Paris Mil­lar proved n as­set in goal at­tack and Keryl Law­ford and Chene Red­man per­formed well in de­fence, the Old Girls proved too strong for the Flames.

A high-scor­ing fourth quar­ter saw the fi­nal mar­gin at 19 points in favour of the Old Girls.

Also in di­vi­sion 1, Cable Beach had a for­feit vic­tory over the Bullets and the Towns edged out the Broome Sharks 37-33. In di­vi­sion 2, the Scorps de­feated the Star­lets 5322, the Broomies had a vic­tory over the Scorchers 45-26, and the Flames burned the Fire­birds 56-13.

In di­vi­sion 3, The Pi­rates scored a last-gasp vic­tory over Jija Bops 45-44, while Not Quite Di­a­monds man­aged their fourth-straight vic­tory, de­feat­ing the Bullets 42-38.

In di­vi­sion 4, the Flames Di­a­monds held off the Bin Chick­ens 33-30 and the Scorchers de­feated the Pinc­tada Pearls 47-22.
