Report from Women’s Senior Coach, Shaun Ribbons
Overall, the girls competed really well and never gave up. This was evident in our tackling count – 93 tackles – on the night, as well as matching Glenelg in contested possessions.
We really struggled to generate enough inside 50’s to have a realistic attempt to win the match. Our defence held up really well despite Glenelg’s constant forward 50 entries.
A feature from our first two games has been our ability to score well in the last quarters. One of our strengths being our persistent tackling. We currently have 5 of the top 10 tacklers in the competition.
Our best player on the night was Caitlen Teague who amassed 12 tackles and 10 contested possessions, closely followed by Danielle Stewart who continues to be our most prolific ball winner and competes well every week.
Other strong performers on the night included Shannen Solly and Gemma Doughty in defence. Our two 16 year old’s, Maddy Lane with 10 tackles and Laitiah Huynh, are exciting prospects for the future.
We also saw 17 year old Kimberley Fry and 20 year old Shailee O’Brien come into the game, both making their League debuts.
Best – Caitlen Teague, Danielle Stewart, Laitiah Huynh, Gemma Doughty, Kimberley Fry, Shannen Solly.
