Fil­lies give gutsy ef­fort

Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT SPORT -

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.
