ROCHESTER Tigerettes had a suc­cess­ful day away in Eu­roa com­ing home with a strong win in every grade of net­ball in Goul­burn Val­ley League ac­tion on Satur­day. U15s — Rochester 54 def. Eu­roa 25 De­spite the cold start to the day, the un­der 15’s came out warm with a good lead at quar­ter time by six goals. Elle Palmer shot with great con­sis­tency work­ing well with Emily Teggelove and Kasey Con­der in the at­tack­ing end. Matilda Lock­yer used her height to her ad­van­tage and re­bounded bril­liantly in de­fence backed up by El­iza Wil­liams. It was an all round great game of team­work that got the girls over the line and ran over Eu­roa by 29. Best: Matilda Lock­yer, Elle Palmer and Kasey Con­der. U17s — Rochester 59 def. Eu­roa 37 The un­der 17’s showed amaz­ing team work all over the court and dom­i­nated the game from the get go. Tess Teggelove and An­nie Hughes shot ac­cu­rately with Tess mak­ing some great moves in the ring earn­ing her an award. Ella Roul­ston played a con­sis­tent game feed­ing well into the goalers and in­ter­cept­ing many balls down the court. Rosy Miechel and Brielle O’Mera com­bined well to­gether in de­fence with Rosy play­ing a bril­liant game tak­ing solid re­bounds and pre­vent­ing goals. Rochester didn’t lose in­ten­sity game and ran out vic­to­ri­ous. Best: Ella Roul­ston, Tess Teggelove and Rosy Miechel. B Re­serve — Rochester 40 def. Eu­roa 23 It was a tight con­test in the first quar­ter for the B-re­serve girls with only one goal the dif­fer­ence at quar­ter time. The girls lifted the in­ten­sity in the sec­ond quar­ter and never looked back, tak­ing con­trol of the game and fin­ish­ing off win­ners. Kate Else was a driv­ing force in wing at­tack help­ing cre­ate great pas­sages of play down the court. Cen­tre player An­nalise Ball stead­ied the ball down the court and passed into the ring with ac­cu­racy. Grace In­gram was in­stru­men­tal in de­fence tak­ing many in­ter­cepts down the court and hold­ing up the play. A solid win for the girls. Best Play­ers: Kate Else, An­nalise Ball and Grace In­gram. B grade — Rochester 52 def. Eu­roa 38 all B grade came out fir­ing from the first whis­tle and fought it out all game en­abling them to main­tain the lead at each change. Eu­roa con­tin­ued to ap­ply the pres­sure but Rochester re­sponded with strength and tenac­ity. De­fen­sive pres­sure across the court was ex­cel­lent and goalers Sarah In­gram, Al­yse Stroobants and Britt Her­cus re­warded the team with su­perb goal­ing. Jamiah Clarke was awe­some in the mid court, tak­ing con­trol of the ball and mak­ing strong drives. The girls ran out the game with strength and fin­ished off win­ners. Best: Sarah In­gram, Al­yse Stroobants and Jamiah Clarke. A Grade — Rochester 53 def. Eu­roa 43 A grade had a great start to the game and was hun­gry for the win. Maddy Eg­gle­stone and Brid­gette Holt were im­pres­sive in de­fence pick­ing off passes and tak­ing fly­ing re­bounds. Tess Teggelove made her A-grade de­but along­side the classy Mor­gan Ding­wall and shot with awe­some ac­cu­racy. Teaghan Val­lely ran hard in wing de­fence get­ting tips to balls. Rosy Miechel came on in the last quar­ter for her first game in A-grade and han­dled the ball down the court with poise. Cen­tre player, Ee­sha Clarke never dropped in­ten­sity all game and passed per­fectly into the ring. A great team ef­fort from the girls, tak­ing the win. Best: Brid­gette Holt, Tess Teggelove and Ee­sha Clarke. Hope­fully Rochy can con­tinue the good form into next week when they take on Be­nalla at home. Foot­ball U12s It was a strong team per­for­mance by the Rochester side when they com­peted against the Run­nymede foot­ball team on Sun­day. Spec­ta­tors were greeted by per­fect weather, con­sis­tent um­pir­ing and an ex­hi­bi­tion of high qual­ity skills, over­head mark­ing and strong tack­ling from both teams. The Rochy mid­field­ers con­sist­ing of Jordy Bru­ton, Hunter Wile­man, Char­lie Pea­cock and Jack Seabrook gave us first use of the ball and pro­vided the for­wards with plenty of scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties through­out the day. Trey White was elu­sive up for­ward early and was sup­ported by some strong mark­ing from To­bie Woodfine and Har­ri­son Fos­ter. While Har­ri­son Keat­ing was weav­ing some magic across the half for­ward line. Our back line was rock-solid all day. Nate Ras­mussen, Blake Roul­ston and Noah O’Sul­li­van gave us plenty of run off half back. Jag­ger Thomas and Ethan Howard stood firm tak­ing marks on the last line of de­fence. Coach Gary Mil­li­gan was very sat­is­fied with his team’s per­for­mance con­sid­er­ing they had a num­ber of play­ers un­avail­able. Goal Kick­ers: To­bie Woodfine 3, Nate Ras­mussen 2, Trey White 2, Jag­ger Thomas 1, Flynn Pain 1, Noah O’Sul­li­van 1, Har­ri­son Fos­ter 1. Awards: Jack Seabrook, Hunter Wile­man, Jordy Bru­ton, Jordy Ras­mussen. Next week’s game is on Fri­day night against Echuca United, start­ing at 6.15pm. All play­ers to be at the ground by 5.45. U14s On a beau­ti­ful sunny Sun­day af­ter­noon at home Bai­ley Wile­man and his U14’s knew it was go­ing to be tough against the top of the lad­der St Au­gus­tine’s. Af­ter a four goal to none first term the team pulled up their socks and play­ing to the coach’s ad­vice kept the vis­i­tors to just two ma­jors in the sec­ond. The third term saw our soli­tary goal scored by Darby “the goal sneak” Wile­man with Rochy hold­ing 80 per cent of the footy. There was some great de­fen­sive play through­out the day, but a four-goal fi­nal quar­ter to the vis­i­tors saw them come out with a con­vic­ing win. Best play­ers: Char­lie Palmer, Jonathon Laird­wa­ters, Darby Wile­man, Lach­lan Gif­fin and Noah O’Sul­li­van.
