Unfortunately, both the Open and Junior teams lost against Ipswich Girls Grammar. It was a tough competition and both teams played really well. In the Opens team, the first half of the game started out slowly, but in the second half all girls picked up their game and a few goals were almost scored. Our four defenders played well and helped stop many goals. Special mention goes to Zoe and Emily Elliot who maintained strong defense throughout the whole game.

Special mention goes to Emily Cook for her strong defence and to Maggie, a new member of the team, who made a few good runs. Special mention also goes to Pip Bass for trying her hardest and playing well in defence and attack. We have come so far as a team and are looking forward to our last game next week!

There have been numerous games over the past couple of weeks, with an away game against Somerville on Wednesday 2nd, a home game against St Peter’s on Friday 4th and against Moreton Bay on Tuesday 8th. Even though these games were scheduled at different times, all the girls have persevered and showed great teamwork throughout their games. It’s great to hear that the 7B team is undefeated and our 9A team has only lost 1 game so far. Big congratulations must go to these teams! Another outstanding effort was from the Senior A team who had an awesome win against Moreton Bay 11-2. We also had the 10B, 9A and 9B teams all win their games, which is a great achievement, so well done to those teams. All the teams showed great sportsmanship and we are excited for more games to come!
