In the first Gala Day of the year, 4 games were played at Uni on Sunday, with the newly formed University Women’s team taking on last years Grand Finalists, South-East Suns.
The Uni women lost their first game of the year to Lauderdale in a low scoring affair, and had a couple of chances to get the points but made some errors late in the game. Not to be deterred, the girls were very keen to take on the Suns and show how much improvement had been made.
On a cold, wet and windy Sunday, the Rainbows took too long to get going, and at quarter time had allowed the Suns 4 goals. Whatever was in the oranges at quarter time had a positive effect, as from them on, Uni dominated the play for the next 2 quarters and player relentless, accountable team footy and asked some tough questions of the opposition. It was clear that the Suns were not expecting this type of resistance, as the Rainbows threw themselves into the fray. Georgie Patrikopolous and Molly Garrett soaked up plenty of pressure down back, while Eli Fornells Vernet, Ellie Kierath, Sam Rose and Sarah Ikin took control around the packs. Ruby Campbell had another blinder on the wing and continues to give opposition teams a headache.
University 4.2, 7.4, 10.7, 14.9 (93)
GOALS, University :B. Green 4, M. Palmer 2, E. Brock 2, B. Livingston 2, B. Waight 2, J. Dunstan 1, J. Tammens 1
Saturday was another great day for the club, winning both grades. OHA have been built up to be Premiership contenders over the preseason and we were well aware if we wanted the points we would be up for a battle. Thats exaclty how the day went, with the margin never getting bigger that a goal at the 3 breaks. Our match up's on their dangerous forwards was alway's going to be a key to winning the game and our guy's did a wonderful job, led by Nathan Hardy on Josh Hall (0 Goals)and Trent "Punchy" Stevens on the dangerous Salpietro (2) . The condition's were terrible with strong winds making it impossible to play any type of free flowing footy but both teams made up for that by giving the supporters that braved the conditions a tight contest that could have went either way. Jed Dunstan played fantastic in his first game for the club in the midfield, he was well supported by Captain Grant King, the exciting youngster's Ethan Brock and Blake Waight as well as the ever relible Josh Fogarty. Brad Green Kicked 4 and looked dangerous in his first game of the year, Palmer , Waight, Brock and Livingston also bobbed up with 2 a piece to again show our versatility in attack.
Next week we host St Virgils at University, we will be looking for a 3-0 start
to the season and expecting the Saints to come out firing after we won
comfortably two weeks ago.
