The Under 16 Girls side is still living the dream after an epic one goal victory in the big dance. Playing St Bede’s Mentone for the third week in a row, and having shared the previous wins, the teams knew each other well. 26 playing 16 brought the usual bench challenges, and the girls were extra nervous and excited for the game.
The first quarter was a nil all draw, the second saw us score the first goal of the game and take to the lead. We then surrendered the lead in the third quarter with attack after attack being largely held out by the brilliant defence of the team. The third quarter huddle was superb; all players embraced in a circle, the captains and leaders took over the coaching and set themselves and the team for what they had all worked so hard to achieve all year.
Starting the final quarter four points down; the grit, the run and the determination of the team was unbelievable. The winning goal coming mid-quarter and the pressure and attack throughout. A one goal victory 2.6-18 to 1.6-12 was a fitting reward for a remarkable team. Well done girls!
