AFL NEB FE­MALE FOOT­BALL

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

In a hard-fought game against the Lav­ing­ton Pan­thers, the Yar­ra­wonga Un­der 16s were de­feated by 2 goals in windy con­di­tions at the JC Lowe Oval.

The game was marred by 2 early in­juries. Both An­nie Ro­bil­liard and new­comer Char­lotte Dono­van came off early in the first quar­ter and the girls were up against it.

Un­der­manned, the young Pi­geons fought for ev­ery pos­ses­sion and never gave up.

Coach Roger Ro­bil­liard tried to rally his troops but un­for­tu­nately the task was too great.

All play­ers tried valiantly only to come up just short at the fi­nal siren.

Our Un­der 16s are des­per­ately look­ing for new play­ers.

Train­ing is on a Mon­day and Wed­nes­day and if any girl is in­ter­ested, come down and have a go, you’ll love it.

Train­ing starts at 6pm.

Best Play­ers: Tayla Samp­son, Evita Williams, Ella Jones, Erica Mont­gomery and Zali Peters.

The Women’s side came up against a highly fan­cied Lav­ing­ton side and the game showed glimpses of class from both sides in a back and forth game, not only on the score­board but on the ground.

Sex­ton, Phibbs, Gig­gins and Bourke were out­stand­ing all day and they had great sup­port from Free­man and Nunn around the ground.

Lang­ford was great in the for­ward line and for the most our de­fence was strong.

Un­for­tu­nately one Lav­ing­ton for­ward was the dif­fer­ence, kick­ing 5 goals.

Fi­nal scores: Yarra 4 .5. 29 def by Lav­ing­ton 8.5. 53

Best: Molly Gig­gins - MDMK Glass and Alu­minium

Court­ney Sex­ton - Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel Chelsea Marks - Sun­run­ners

Olivia El­liott - B.E.Wear

Rori Phibbs - Souleiado
