The Women’s team faced the rapidly improving and very competitive La Trobe University team on Saturday. In immaculate playing conditions and with first class facilities, the home team kicked with a slight wind and jumped to an early lead. By half time we had bridged the gap, but we were still playing well below our best and needed to lift after the main break. With added motivation to send off VAFA international rules star Emma Stafford off in her last game on a winning note, we held La Trobe Uni to a solitary point to run out victors by 15 points in a hard-fought win. This was an important result as we really had to dig deep to get ourselves going in the second have and credit must go to all the players who responded when they needed too. Heading into the break for the long weekend we are looking forward to resuming our next game at home against Old Mentone at 10am on Saturday 15th June.
