The Women’s team hosted the 2018 premiers, Old Haileybury in a twilight game on Saturday. We lost multiple best and fairest winner Indi Tait to a potential season ending injury during the week, which was devastating news for Indi and the team. In windy conditions we gained an early lead when we kicked with the wind and jumped to a 23-point lead in the first quarter. With some good teamwork and system, we maintained a 24-point lead at half time. The second half was a real slog due to the wind and rain and both teams battled on well, but the conditions made it difficult for either team to score. We eventually ran out 29-point winners in a really good team effort securing 2nd place on the ladder. Next week we travel to Bundoora to face the fast improving La Trobe Uni.
