The Dal Pos girls returned to the field with avengence as it pushed aside the struggles from the previous week to run over the top of a competitive Mosman squad.
The girls were given an amazing home ground welcome, with our wonderful Auskickers giving them a guard of honour that wouldn’t be out of place on the international sporting field.
It certainly gave them a boost, with Genevieve booting a couple of goals in the first few minutes of the game. The girls were challenged early in the second quarter, with Mosman getting a couple of goals. However, they wresteld back control and never looked back after that.
The girls are clearly learing the beenfit of team work, with several plays highlighting the case. Elizabeth sprinted from the centre to stop the ball running through for a point, handballed back to Imogen who slotted a goal. While Eliza continually pushed back to help out the defence in the 2nd half.
The level of improvement in the skill level also continues to amaze me. It was so great to see Jeanie kick her first goal for the season. While our Auskick graduates, Isabelle and Sibella look increasingly like seasoned U10YG players.
The game wasn’t without drama though. Imogen had a clash of heads that left her with a blood lip. However, after a quick visit to the medical tent, she was back on the field and fighting hard for the ball. Not surprisingly, she was awarded the courage award.
And after showing great effort all game with non-stop running to support her teammates, Elizabeth was the lucky recipient this week.
This week the competition has a bye, however we send all our best wishes to Eliza McLeod who will be representing Lane Cove Cats at the Sydney Juniors Development Carnical. Well done!
