U16’s

Yarra were tak­ing on the team that they beat in last year’s Grand Fi­nal so this game was al­ways go­ing to be a hard fought con­test.

Yarra had first use of the ball and scored via Ge­or­gia Law­less. Both sides set­tled quickly and it was goal for goal. The Ge­or­gia’s (Law­less and Kennedy) were com­bin­ing well. With good drive down the court the girls got a quar­ter time break to be 3 up, with Suzie Levesque win­ning around the cen­tre.

The sec­ond quar­ter saw the Hoppers start off well with the first 3 goals, but that didn’t stop the young pi­geons with win­ners ev­ery­where, saw the girls up by 5 at half time.

Once again the Hoppers came out fir­ing and scored the first 4 goals, our girls fought back and took a 2 goal lead into three quar­ter time. This wasn’t a good quar­ter for us, Stella Mulquiney went off af­ter rolling her an­kle, this saw Suzie Levesque come back on.

The last quar­ter was al­ways go­ing to be hard, North Al­bury were re­lent­less with com- ing at the young Pi­geons, un­for­tu­nately our girls went down by 1.

Very proud of the fight these young girls have. Best Play­ers Ge­or­gia Law­less & Ellie Ro­bil­liard Goals Ge­or­gia Law­less 18 and Ge­or­gia Kennedy 18.

Af­ter last week’s game against Al­bury, it was go­ing to be a test for the in­ten­sity lev­els against the ex­pe­ri­enced Hoppers.

With the girls start­ing the game quickly and ef­fi­ciently they ended the first quar­ter with a 3 goal lead thanks Tayla Bogle and Maddie Kennedy.

The tem­per­a­ture was in­creas­ing and the fitness of the Yarra girls was show­ing through. The girls fin­ished the first half with a 10 goal lead.

The third quar­ter saw the game a lit­tle bit more even and North gained some ground and cut the deficit to 7 at three quar­ter time.

The last quar­ter started with North gain­ing the up­per hand and cut­ting the gap to 2 goals.

This kicked the Yarra girls into gear and they put their foot down and fin­ished the game with a 9 goal win.
