AFL NEB WOM­ENS FOOT­BALL

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

On a cold and windy af­ter­noon in Wodonga, the Yar­ra­wonga women’s foot­ball team bat­tled for a hard-fought win.

The Pi­geons wel­comed back Chelsea Mark’s and mer­cu­rial Molly Gig­gin’s.

Both girls were a great as­set to the team, with their abil­ity to mark and run.

Some spec­ta­tors may have even mis­taken mer­cu­rial Molly, for Daisy Pearce.

Rory Phibb’s re­lent­less tack­ling and pres­sure al­lowed for for­wards, such as Jess Butcher and Tyler Houghton to make some mag­nif­i­cent leads.

As well as ex­cep­tional drive and lead­er­ship in the back line from coach Mal Nankervis demon­strat­ing her pre­ci­sion and com­po­sure when han­dling the ball.

Mal’s skills had a flow on ef­fect to other play­ers in the back line, in likes of Jenna Knight and Chloe Bogle.

Fur­ther­more, the game wouldn’t be pos­si­ble if some of the Pi­geons girls played for Wodonga.

Those play­ers are Court­ney Young, Bon­nie Camp­bell, Amy Wil­liams and Sheree McNa­mara.

Not to men­tion a big thank you to all the peo­ple that vol­un­teered their time to help girls play this week­end.

Go Pi­geons.
