The Mt Albert Ramblers’ premier women’s side is proving they won’t be taking this season lying down after putting in a stronger performance against their West Auckland opponents. In the second week of season play, the Ramblers squared off against the Waitakere Bears conceding a narrow 2-0 defeat at Penrose’s Simson Reserve on Saturday. Their performance was a huge improvement on last week’s disappointing 16-1 loss to the Western Magpies. Team manager Colleen Callaghan says the
predomin- antly young side has come along in leaps and bounds.
‘‘They played 100 per cent better than last week.
‘‘They held them pretty well right up to the fifth inning.’’
Ramblers player Freya Bullock says gelling together in training sessions is starting to pay off.
‘‘We’ve improved heaps. ‘‘We’re definitely coming together as a team.’’
Bullock is confident they can keep upping their game week by week.
