Bentleigh 1s by Charlotte Conway (C)

This weekend brought the second game of the season the 1’s were ready and raring to go.

Goalers Brielle and Jen worked hard on their first game together, to keep the goals up, rebounding balls fantastically. Midcourt superstar Jade fought hard to feed the ball into the goals, Chiara used space well and assisted to feed the ball into the goalers too.

At half time Bentleigh were down by a few goals but that didn’t stop us putting up a good fight and showing Murrumbeena how much more we had to give. Defenders Rika, Katherine and Charlotte battled as hard as they could to keep the ball from going into the opposition ring.

The game ended strong with Bentleigh winning the last quarter by 6 goals however Murrumbeena proved to be the better team on the day.

Final score: Murrumbeena 49 defeated Bentleigh 29. Coaches notes by Steph Clegg: After a shaky start, the team persevered in hot conditions to close the gap each quarter and eventually win the final quarter in an impressive effort. A game win is next on our list with this newly formed team really starting to gel.
