Eu­roa girls fin­ish up their his­tory-mak­ing in­au­gu­ral sea­son

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

par­ton Notre were off to a fly­ing start as they won the toss and took full ad­van­tage of the blus­tery weather.

The as­cen­dency of the Bears in the first quar­ter en­sured they took full con­trol of the game as the Eu­roa girls strug­gled against their slick ball skills and the con­di­tions.

The dom­i­nance of the top-placed side was too great for the Eu­roa girls who were valiant in their en­deav­ours to play out the game for the re­main­ing three quar­ters.

Al­though a big de­feat played out, the girls ral­lied around each other and had a good old fash­ioned slide in the mud to cap off their last game for the sea­son and walked off the ground arm in arm, full of smiles and laughs.

How­ever, this ar­ti­cle isn’t about what un­folded on the ground on a Sun­day af­ter­noon in Au­gust; it’s about the girls who have pulled on the black and white stripes for the first time this sea­son.

This has been an achieve­ment that they should be ex­tremely proud of be­cause their club and the wider com­mu­nity are proud of them and their ef­forts this sea­son.

There is noth­ing more coura­geous than step­ping into the un­known and try­ing some­thing brand new, es­pe­cially in a sport that is tra­di­tion­ally dom­i­nated by their male coun­ter­parts, but these girls and their fam­i­lies made it hap­pen and made it their own.

Their en­deav­our to im­prove each week, their will­ing­ness to learn and their re­silience through­out the sea­son has been in­cred­i­ble and an ab­so­lute joy to be in­volved in.

Look­out sea­son 2018, these girls are ready.

‘Til next year, go Pies.
