A Grade

Shooter Gemma O’Sul­li­van was ab­sent due to in­jury but thank­fully that didn’t im­pact the dom­i­nance of the Pi­geons across the whole game.

Han­nah Symes played another award win­ning game in de­fence, cre­at­ing turnovers and op­por­tu­ni­ties for Yar­ra­wonga to score.

The Pi­geons had a seven goal lead at the first change and their lead con­tin­ued to ex­pand for the fol­low­ing three terms.

Cait­lyn O’Dwyer drove the ball through the mid­dle and Laura Bourke picked up any loose op­por­tu­nity push­ing the ball into the cir­cle where Bridge Cas­sar and Abbey Jones cap­i­talised. The game was a per­fect ex­am­ple of why Yar­ra­wonga re­main in top spot. Score: Yar­ra­wonga 51 to Al­bury 32 Best: C O’Dwyer, L Bourke. Goals: B Cas­sar 38, A Jones 13.

B Grade

It was a very even start for both teams with scores level at the first break.

But sit­ting top of the lad­der, Al­bury got the upper hand in the sec­ond giv­ing them a four goal lead at half time.

With Emma Sout­ter away, Yar­ra­wonga had to make some changes and the op­por­tu­nity was given to 16s player Indi Frauen­felder who proved she’s ca­pa­ble of match­ing it in B Grade.

At GA Indi helped the Pi­geons re­duce the tally to three at the ¾ mark.

Both teams were scor­ing end to end but with seven min­utes re­main­ing on the clock Al­bury stepped on the throt­tle and fired away to win by 11. Fi­nal score 30-41 Best: J Sharp, I Frauen­felder Goals: K Ro­bil­liard 11, I Frauen­felder 10, E York 9.

C Grade

This was al­ways go­ing to be a tough one with Yar­ra­wonga sit­ting third and Al­bury at num­ber four, but the Pi­geons ap­plied the pres­sure and the scores re­flected their ef­fort.

Tayla Bogle’s shoot­ing and dom­i­nance in the cir­cle was a stand­out. Zoe Jones was a con­tribut­ing fac­tor through the mid­dle and her drive re­sulted in a seven goal lead at half time. Al­bury had no way of play­ing catch up with the Pi­geons in front by 10 half way through the last. Fi­nal score 39-30 Best: T Bogle, Z Jones Goals: T Bogle 17, S Kennedy 17, B Bai­ley 3.

Un­der 16s

Af­ter an even start the Pi­geon girls man­aged a five point lead at the first quar­ter break.

From the sec­ond quar­ter Yar­ra­wonga was gain­ing the as­cen­dancy and at half time were up by eight.

Each week the un­der 16s im­prove­ment in team­work out­shines their op­po­si­tion and their con­fi­dence par­tic­u­larly in the last pushed their game to a higher level.

Laura Zanin was ev­ery­where she was sup­posed to be and El­iza York had an ac­cu­rate scor­ing game shoot­ing 19 from 21 at­tempts. Fi­nal score 39-24 Best: L Zanin, I Frauen­felder Goals: I Frauen­felder 24, E York 21, A Chap­man 7, I Craw­ford 1.
