Yarra girls de­feat lad­der leader

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

The Yarra girls en­tered the week­end’s game know­ing they would have a chal­lenge at hand against the un­de­feated Wodonga Raiders.

The girls started the game fir­ing and ac­cu­mu­lated a 3 goal lead, in the early min­utes of the first quar­ter. They couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter start!

The Pi­geons for­ward line and cen­tre field­ers did a great job at lock­ing the ball in our for­ward 50 re­sult­ing in some well-de­served goals!

The cen­tre field­ers showed a fan­tas­tic dis­play of run­ning abil­ity mak­ing a strong im­pact at the con­test, clear­ing the ball and mov­ing it on with great form.

The girls in the for­ward line showed just how much they are learn­ing and im­prov­ing and made great plays, pay­ing off in some top goals.

The Wodonga Raiders for­wards had their work cut out against Pi­geons back line, al- though The Raiders were do­ing well to keep the ball in their for­ward 50 at times.

The Pi­geons hunger and num­bers at the ball al­lowed them to de­stroy any chance raiders had at scor­ing! Raiders were defiantly a strong side although it may not show in the score.

The Yarra girls just brought their A game on the day and the Raiders could not hold them back. Yar­ra­wonga’s over­all player im­pact and abil­ity across the field blew the game out with an outstanding win.
