A Grade

The Pi­geons have en­joyed their sev­enth con­sec­u­tive win against the Bull­dogs and as ex­pected they dom­i­nated for all four quar­ters.

Debu­tants Tilly Kennedy and Laura Zanin were sen­sa­tional at­tack­ing across the mid­court prov­ing they have po­ten­tial for good fu­tures at Yar­ra­wonga.

Jayanna Sharp also stepped up and played the sec­ond half of A Grade af­ter putting in a hard ef­fort in four quar­ters of B.

Han­nah Symes and Annalise Grin­ter kept con­trol of the back­line cre­at­ing many op­por­tu­ni­ties and push­ing the ball for­ward. Abbey Jones was stun­ning in goals.

Yarra were clear win­ners for all four quar­ters fi­nally putting a lid on the round with a win 57-32. Best: A Jones, L Mulquiney Goals: B Cas­sar 35, A Jones 22

B Grade

B Grade went in con­fi­dently against a bot­tom side Wodonga which showed at quar­ter time with a lead of 11.

The Pi­geons had win­ners all over the court and were a headache to the Wodonga coaches who were un­able to make any changes to chal­lenge the Pi­geons.

Ange Tyrell was on fire in the goal cir­cle and Lau­ren Mulquiney and Kait­lyn Cum­mins’ ex­pe­ri­ence kept the Pi­geon drive alive with the girls came out on top win­ning 59-27. Best: A Tyrell, K Cum­mins Goals: A Tyrell 35, K Ro­bil­liard 25

C Grade

Once again Wodonga scored the first three goals of the game but ex­pe­ri­ence showed and the Pi­geons stead­ied to re­spond with a four goal lead at the first break.

Yar­ra­wonga could do no wrong in the sec­ond and third quar­ters and were win­ner across the court and just kept win­ning the turnovers.

How could any­one pick best play­ers from a field of seven who could do no wrong?

In the third the Pi­geons scored 21 to Wodonga’s nine and were well in front by 34.

With bril­liant de­fence work, the de­fend­ers kept cap­i­tal­is­ing on op­por­tu­ni­ties mov­ing the ball for­ward and Yar­ra­wonga won by a whop­ping 47. Fi­nal score 73-26. Best: A Hem­phill, C O’Sul­li­van Goals: T Bogle 39, S Kennedy 34

Un­der 16s

Wodonga took off to a fly­ing start but the young Pi­geons set­tled to­ward the end of the first to hold a one point lead at the first turn.

Tilly Kennedy was on fire win­ning the ball around the cen­tre and driv­ing it to the for­ward line. The Pi­geons grabbed con­trol of the game and were up by six at the half time break.

How­ever a de­fi­ant Bull­dogs served up five goals in a row against the Pi­geons in the third.

The girls needed to re­coup and that they did, run­ning it out all game and ap­ply­ing un­wanted pres­sure to Wodonga. With Indi Frauen­felder and El­iza York both shoot­ing well the Pi­geons came out vic­tors 55-50. Best: E Wood­burn, T Kennedy Goals: E York 27, I Frauen­felder 15, A Chap­man 11, I Craw­ford 2
