Another win for the Pi­geon girls

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies Classies -

The Pi­geon girls have se­cured another win, in­creas­ing their sea­son tally to five and main­tain­ing top spot on the lad­der af­ter top­pling Lav­ing­ton on Sun­day.

Do­ing their mother’s proud on their spe­cial day, both teams played the game with great spirit and sports­man­ship.

The Yar­ra­wonga girls gave their op­po­si­tion three play­ers to al­low them to field a full side and they com­peted with all the grit and courage they would have shown for their own team.

The girls were on a roll from the first bounce with Maddie Warner boot­ing the first ma­jor just 30 sec­onds into the first quar­ter then kick­ing a sec­ond soon af­ter off Liv El­liott’s hard work.

Ella Jones in the mid­dle con­tin­ued last week’s awe­some form and the con­sis­tent good work by Molly Kennedy in the cen­tre kept the Yar­ra­wonga girls on top.

Maddie Warner con­tin­ued to star as­sist­ing in another goal kicked by Grace Thomp­son.

Erica Mont­gomery’s game was in­spi­ra­tional and as­sisted in keep­ing the Pan­thers score­less at the first turn.

Each week the team con­tin­ues to im­prove and Illa Craw­ford, Stella Mulquiney, Amy Grif­fith and Molly Kennedy ran out the game caus­ing headaches for the Lav­ing­ton coach­ing team. Per­sis­tence paid off for Erica Mont­gomery with a goal in the third quar­ter ce­ment­ing the teams lead.

The Pi­geons main­tained their lead for the game cre­at­ing havoc for the strug­gling Pan­thers with only two scor­ing kicks for the match.

Jenna Knight put in a pearler across the half for­ward line and Amy Grif­fith and Grace Thom­son’s fit­ness is pay­ing div­i­dends for the Yar­ra­wonga team.

The Pi­geon girls are look­ing for­ward to play­ing on home turf again next Sun­day when they front up to the Alpine Lions for round seven.

Goals: Maddi Warner 3, Erica Mont­gomery 1, G Thom­son 1.

Best Play­ers: Illa Craw­ford, Erica Mont­gomery, Molly Kennedy, Stella Mulquiney, Amy Grif­fith, Maddi Warner.

Jenna Knight takes off with ball in hand.
