Women  13th May :08.01 (49)Hobart Tigers 02.03 (015)

The Uni Women notched up their second win of the year, albeit in unusual circumstances. Following The Great Storm, we were worried the game would be scratched, but fortunately an alternate venue was found in Pontville and the game against the Hobart Tigers went ahead. The Rainbows were absolutely determined to put up a better showing than the previous week against Lindisfarne, and after a series of slow starts, resolved to get out of the blocks quickly against the Tigers. They did this and scored quickly, but only served to wake Hobart up and the rest of the quarter was an arm wrestle.

In the second quarter, the Rainbows showed their class, slamming on 4 unanswered goals to open up a handy break. These goals were the result of strong midfield pressure causing turnovers then catching Hobart out on the fast rebound. This is the sort of footy we are capable of.

The second half was not much of a spectacle as Hobart played a tight, inside, spoiling brand of footy that slowed the game down and made it hard to score. As a result, they managed to cobble together a good number of forward entries, but the Rainbow defence was on song and held them at bay.

The last quarter was similar, but the Rainbows scored twice and eventually ran out 6 goal winners.

We now travel to Boyer on Sunday to take on New Norfolk in an game that may seek us sneak into the five if we can grab the points. This Uni side has great potential, perhaps more than they realise and will only improve as the season wears on.

Best Players were: Mimi Refaei who is right at home on a half back flank, Ellie Kierath and Ruby Campbell who provide constant midfield drive and Sarah Ikin and Amy Madsen who work hard in the packs. We were also well served by Issy Ermacora, Molly Garrett and Eve Taylor who got better as the game wore on. 

Cheers, Gerry.
