THE girls started off the first quarter with integrity, and with good competition it was a close first quarter.
Charlotte Howie and Jacinda Dixon-Rielly worked together in defence, getting various intercepts until an injury to Charlotte.
Some excellent mid court play from Cassie Dolling, Bella Butterworth and Sammy Hardiman, who all worked hard, trying to break past Echuca’s zone defence.
Bethany Vogelzang and Grace Hood, with excellent passes combined well early in the game until thirdrd quarter where we had a diverse interchange.
Jacinda Dixon-Rielly and Cassie Dolling going into goals with Grace then Bethany Vogelzang moving into Keeper causing many intercepts with Belle Edwards.
Although we were down, the girls showed determination in the last quarter and caused Echuca to become flustered with our commitment. Unfortunately, with their speed and structured systems Echuca ran home with the win.
