Nina Barry-Macaulay:
Nine for Breakers

Local women AFL team, Bass Coast Breakers, remain undefeated after a 92 point win against the Karingal Bulls at Ballam Park on Saturday.

By Portal Admin - 11th July 2017 - Back to News

It was an intense and aggressive game. The heavy ground and wet ball lead to a lot of messy scrums where both teams struggled to clear the ball from the melee.

Bass Coast were able to clear it more often than the Bulls, with a few linking handballs that lead to some clear runs and a healthy lead on the score board.

The Breakers continued their habit of starting strong, putting 4 goals and 7 points on the board in the first quarter while the Bulls were unable to score.

The second quarter saw the Bulls lift their intensity which resulted in their first goal and slowing the Breakers, bringing a 7.10.52 to 1.0.6 score at half time.

Bass Coast Breakers contributed 2 players to the Karingal Bulls, who were short numbers, and Breakers player Jade Macdermid kicked the second goal for the Bulls in the third quarter. In a situation that doesn’t happen very often, both teams were stoked to see Jade kick her first goal for the season.

Karingal’s M. Hart kicked her second goal in the final quarter, and Bass Coast’s T. Stahl-Smith kicked her sixth. The final result was 3.0.18 to Karingal and 16.14.110 to Bass Coast.

The Breakers play the Frankston Dolphins at Inverloch Rec Reserve on Sunday 16 July at 1pm. Come down to support your local Women’s AFL team and watch these ladies making waves in women’s sport.
