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.

Thank you t o Mans - field Arm­chair Cin­ema and O’Mal­ley’s Pizza for their kind spon­sor­ship.
