Gulls out af­ter one-goal loss

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LIFT OUT -

It was a heart­break­ing one­goal loss for War­ragul in B grade on Sunday.

B grade: 1st semi-fi­nal: War­ragul 45 lost to Mor­well 46.

The girls were ready to give it all they had and de­ter­mined to come out with a win.

The Gulls were up against a Mor­well side they had lost to by six goals early in the sea­son and drew with later in the year.

Both teams were fight­ing to keep their place in the 2018 fi­nals series, with the loser be­ing elim­i­nated.

The Gulls started the game fast, at times play­ing to Mor­well’s game pace. This was a huge fac­tor in Mor­well’s six-goal lead at the end of the first quar­ter.

Af­ter speak­ing about play­ing their game and set­ting their pace, the Gulls man­aged to come back in the sec­ond quar­ter. Set­tling into the game, they fought back to trail 20-21 at half-time.

The Gulls fought hard to keep up with Mor­well and, at times, put ma­jor pres­sure on their play­ers, re­sult­ing in nu­mer­ous changes from the Mor­well side. The fin­ished the third quar­ter just four goals be­hind.

War­ragul’s de­fen­sive pres­sure started to pay off in the fourth quar­ter. They got ahead at times, play­ing a goal-for-goal game. How­ever, the Gulls ended up be­ing de­feated by one goal.

The club is ex­tremely proud of its B grade side and are ex­cited to see what the 2019 sea­son brings for the Gulls.
