In the final game of their 2018 season the Seniors were looking forward to closing with a win. Hitting the scoreboard early with a perfect passage of play in the forward fifty, Amy Dillon kicked to Vanessa ‘Goose’ Lussini who was in perfect position to dribble it through, however did the unselfish thing and hand balled it to Sasha Dougherty who was in the goal square and kicked the leather off the ball. Ange ‘Snowy’ Snowdon worked hard up and down the ground throughout the game, dishing out tackle after tackle. It was a tough contest, with high pressure across all areas of the field.
Felicity Smith a dynamic and instrumental player dominated in the backline, allowing the ball to move up the midfield creating opportunity for Brunswick. Mon “Alex Rance” Gray was to her delight pushed up forward to have a crack at kicking some goals, coming close in the fourth quarter. Kelly Dungate kicked a superb goal from a set shot which helped ease the scoreboard pressure and moved up on the wing to give a little more muscle. Clare “Wrecking Ball” Woodhouse dominated the tackle count, however was unfortunately not rewarded for her efforts but sure let her presence be known and the rule book as well. Tahlia Hayes continued her stellar season and was prolific in the midfield and backline. Ash Gaddes, Anna Carey and Maddie Wright all stepped up from the Reserves and played fantastic structured footy, that highlights how much the skill level has improved throughout the two squads since round one. We look forward to seeing them back on field next year, making more appearances in the Prems.
A big thank you to the coaches for a fantastic 2018 season, for always being there especially in those rainy nights and cold conditions at training sessions. We hope to see you all back again firing for 2019!
Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers and fans of local women’s footy. We can’t do it without you, and we hope to see you cheer the Reserves on in their well-deserved semi final spot next week against St Mary’s Salesian.
