Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

Yar­ra­wonga 34 de­feated Wodonga Raiders 24.

A grade bat­tled out a very phys­i­cal tight game against Raiders on the week­end, hav­ing a win and mov­ing to third spot on the lad­der, giv­ing the Pi­geons the dou­ble chance for the fi­nals race.

The girls were off to a great start with lots of turnovers in de­fence from An­nalise Grin­ter.

Mal Nankervis com­bined well with Anna and was able to run all day and gave fan­tas­tic drive out of de­fence.

Kait­lyn Cum­mins level head and ex­pe­ri­ence and her abil­ity to read down court play caused lots of er­rors from the Raiders mid­court.

The mid­court line-up of Tilly Kennedy, Caitlin O’Dwyer and Indi Frauen­felder used their speed and skill to out run a tall line-up, their pre­ci­sion pass­ing opened up the at­tack end.

Indi and Ange Tyrell posted some ac­cu­rate goal­ing be­fore El­iza York was brought on at quar­ter time. El­iza added a fo­cal point in the ring and stood tall and shot beau­ti­fully, re­ally step­ping up af­ter her game in the un­der 16s.

Indi and Ange used their speed to ex­pose El­iza un­der the post, with all com­bi­na­tions look­ing great head­ing into fi­nals.

Goals: El­iza York 12, Brid­get Cas­sar, Ange Tyrell 8, Indi Fraen­felder 5.

Best: Kait­lyn Cum­mins & Mal Nankervis.

A cou­ple of changes saw the girls up by 1 at half time fol­lowed by a strong third quar­ter which in­creased the lead to 10 goals.

Some of the play­ers strug­gled with the heat to run out the fi­nal quar­ter but the girls still man­aged a strong win, Yar­ra­wonga 48 def Raiders 42.

Goals: Brid­get Cas­sar 24, El­lie Dick­ens 20, Laura Davis 4.

Best play­ers: Jayanna Sharp and Laura Davis.
