A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month. It was so cold that we all needed this to kick start our morning. The Auskickers gave us a fantastic guard of honour to celebrate Elin’s 50th game for the club. The first quarter was really close as both teams felt each other out. Mosman has the better of the first quarter and converted one chance to lead. Our tackling was first class, with Charli G, Eloise and Charlotte Z all leading the way. Lexie W was also winning the ruck again which gave our quick midfielders plenty of opportunity.

Lily D and Charlotte A were outstanding in the second term. When the ball went forward it just rebounded back again which gave Annabelle plenty of opportunities which eventually resulted in our first goal. We were still trailing at half time, but we were al confident that if we could continue to get our hands on the ball we could score. In the second half, Olive, Lexie P,  Lily S, Lucy and Grace all outstanding, whilst Amber, Elin, Emma, and Isabelle tried hard in the middle to keep the ball moving forward. Charli D was great in defence continually marking their big kicks forward and returning these up field. We welcomed Izzy W back after a break and she contributed all over the field.

At the end of the game, we didn’t quite make it, but given we had 6 subs and only 12 on the field, everyone was really patient.

Better luck next week
