Women shine in All-Stars

Midwest Times - - SPORT -

Some of the Mid West’s best fe­male footy play­ers laced up their boots for the Women’s All-Star Match on Sun­day.

A North and South team were made up of 15 of the best play­ers se­lected from the Mid West fe­male foot­ball light­ning car­ni­val held in Ger­ald­ton last month.

It was a com­pet­i­tive game at the WA Coun­try Builders Sta­dium, with the North team tak­ing home the win with a nar­row three-point lead.

Mid West fe­male foot­ball co-or­di­na­tor Kaite McMichian said she hoped matches like this could be the start of an of­fi­cial women’s com­pe­ti­tion.

“The girls are get­ting a lot bet­ter skill-wise and hope­fully we will have an ac­tual com­pe­ti­tion through the GNFL next year,” she said.

North’s Erica Trot­ter and South’s Alanna An­der­son were named the day’s best.
