Round 7 Womens Match Report

OLD BRIGHTON:  5.8-38

OLD HAILEYBURY: 1.4-10

The round 7 match against Old Haileybury loomed as a crucial game for both teams. A win would see us maintain 2nd place while a loss would put us back to fourth. After a close opening quarter, the tonners held onto a narrow lead after kicking into a slight breeze. In a relentless effort in the remaining three quarters we held our opposition to a further 3 points while we took control of the game.

Unfortunately, our beloved team member Clare Cameron suffered a bad knee injury during the game. While the extent of the injury is not known at this stage, we wish Clare all the very best for a quick recovery.

This week we are back at home against Old Mentone in a twilight game in the lead up to the mid-season bye.

Goals: A. Hales 3, A. Grant, M. Yeoman

Best:  S. Visentini, I. Tait, A. Grant, A. Hales, M. McGregor, E. Stafford
