The season has finally arrived after starting training in November last year. Our girls were pitted against last years premiers so Round 1 was going to be a tough initiation for our new team.
We are very fortunate to have 4 new girls in our team Katrina, Laura, Tilly and Johanna - welcome girls!
Our 1st quarter started well and we were out of the gates early Karina provided a target in the forward line with Zoe and Bella proving dangerous up forward. Goals to Bella and Zoe saw us 2 goals to no score at the end of the 1st quarter. Credit to Prahran in the 2nd quarter as they held us to 1 goal (Laura) but a great effort by our back line Siobhan, Olivia, Tilly and Tea, who held Prahran to also 1 goal in the 2nd quarter. Half time and we were 9 points ahead and Prahran had the aid of a slight breeze in the 3rd term. They piled on the pressure with 3 goals whilst holding us scoreless. Again great efforts in the mid filed by Jo, EJ, Georgia R and Daisy. In the final term despite starting 10 points behind, our girls showed real determination kicking 2 goals and holding Prahran scoreless to run out winners by 4 points. Fantastic efforts by Eliza in the backline, Alicia, Georgia W and 2 goals in the last by Jemma sealed the win. Thanks also to the U/16 girls Chelsea, Rose, Taylah and Amelia. The win was a great team effort and showed how committed the girls are in 2017, well done girls.
Final score : Tigers 5 4 34 defeated Prahran 4 6 30. Go Tigers!
