Pi­geons down to Thur­goona Bull­dogs

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies Classies -

The Yar­ra­wonga Youth Girls Foot­ball Team suf­fered only their sec­ond loss of the sea­son go­ing down to the Thur­goona Bull­dogs in a one-sided af­fair on Sun­day.

The Pi­geons failed to score in the match with fi­nal scores be­ing Yar­ra­wonga 0.0.0 to Thur­goona 5.10.40.

Clearly the bet­ter team on the day, the Bull­dogs came out hard and caught the Yar­ra­wonga girls on the back foot from the first bounce.

The ma­jor­ity of the game was played in Thur­goona’s for­ward half and this trans­lated on the score­board with the Pi­geons find­ing it hard to get into a scor­ing po­si­tion.

That be­ing said there were def­i­nitely some pos­i­tives for the Pi­geons with Molly Burke and Fin­ley Ny­holm be­ing solid in the back­line all day.

The girls came out in the sec­ond half with re­newed de­ter­mi­na­tion with the tack­ling of Ella Jones around the ground a high­light.

Erica Mont­gomery was also solid all day as was Fin­ley Ny­holm and Sarah Ryan.

The girls have com­mit­ted to train­ing hard on the track this week and ris­ing to the chal­lenge of Wodonga Raiders on their home ground next week af­ter the Pi­geons se­nior match. The game starts at 4.45pm at Bir­ralee Park. Awards: Fin­ley Ny­holm, Molly Burke, Ella Jones, Court­ney Sex­ton, Sarah Ryan, Erica Mont­gomery.

The work of Ella Jones was a high­light in the sec­ond half.
