U12YG Round 3 v Ramsgate

Little girls with big hearts showed the way for the Cannons last week.

Even though they were up against a much bigger team, the gutsy Cannons weren’t daunted by the task and never gave up, getting better as the game wore on.  

Audrey and Marlie put their head over the ball and went in hard no matter how big the opponent facing them.

Audrey repeatedly used her pace and courage to attack the footy, while Marlie’s second and third efforts in defence in the fourth quarter especially were matched only by her brilliant smother to save a certain goal.

While their efforts at ground level were impressive, Cristina and Amy were taking strong marks all day and clearing the footy from defence as the entire backline regularly held out Ramsgate attacks in the second half.

They were well supported by Haylee who showed great composure as she regularly mopped up the loose ball and followed up her kicks with strong tackles.

Edie is quickly taking to the game and took a strong overhead mark on the wing and also picked up plenty of contested possessions in and under, while Ivy E was also prominent.

The girls showed plenty of character on a tough day which shows they’ll have many more great days as the season continues.
