As coach Dan said to the girls it was “atrocious” conditions for playing footy, when our U12 Youth Girls faced Forest Lions at their home ground.
However judging by the smiles, looks like our U12 Youth Girls enjoyed playing in the mud, cold rain and wind, and would have been disappointed to play on the synthetic field behind.
Although we lost on the day, we managed to score a goal which was uplifting for the team. 7-6-48 to 1-2-8
It was nice to see some of the team structures forming, and where some of the girl’s natural field positions and skills are starting to show.
There was a great combination in the ruck with Imogen winning just about every tap out she was involved in, and flicking it straight to Lizzie who was sending the ball forward. They both covered a lot of the field.
Celeste was a great ‘scrapper’ and able to pick up plenty of loose balls from the midfield.
Sami was fully involved in the game playing in centre forward position, especially when there were goal kicking opportunities. Likewise Genevieve had flare when playing in the forwards.
It was good to see Veronica and Josie involved in the contest and use their natural height and strength.
Great contribution from all the other girls who tackled and ran and did their best on what was a tough but fun day.
