Fillies give gutsy effort
THE CENTRAL Burnett Fillies put in a gutsy performance against formidable opponents the Gladstone Raiderettes.
The Fillies overcame first-half shellshock to contain the Raiderettes but eventually went down 40–4.
Injured player Melinda Thorburn watched the game from the sidelines and was proud of the girls’ performance.
“The Gladstone girls were very aggressive and hard women to play against,” she said.
“We came back in the second half, it seems to be something we do – we settle down and start to play really well.”
Thorburn said all the girls worked well together, but gave special mention to Rosie Parsons’ tireless performance.
