Despite the artic start, it was a glorious day for footy. The sloping ground added an element of difference, but it seems it will take more than a hill to keep the Breakers at bay. The Breakers used their speed and agility to overcome the Red Hill Ladies who showed great skill and determination, but were unable to match the Breakers teamwork.

From the start the Breakers established a solid momentum which Red Hill would struggle to slow. Breakers kicked an early goal which lead to 5 more, Red Hill finished the quarter with one point.

Red Hill kicked a goal in the second quarter, the Breakers added another 4 goals taking the score to 10.9-69 to Bass Coast and 1.1-7 to red Hill at half time.

Breakers showed great determination in defence leading into the second half. Red Hill’s M.Witchell was determined to kick another goal for her team, which she did. With some great linking up, breakers were able to convert from defence to scoring, taking the ball the length of the oval on several occasions to take another 3 goals and 10 points.

With their foot on the pedal, the Breakers finished the game with an additional 4 goals and 5 points, Red Hill were unable to score in the last.

Goal kickers: W. Cuthbertson (5), E. Volard (4), T. Stahl-Smith (4), S. Vesty (2), E. Angarane and K. Edney.

Best On: S. Bolding, E. Angarane, S. Vesty, W. Cuthbertson, E. Volard, C. Bolding
