Congratulations to our Aussie Rules Girls who recently won the Southern Metro Championships at Bentleigh.
Our first qualifying game was against Koo Wee Rup and we had a very easy victory. Final scores were Hallam 15-7-97 v KWR 0-1-1. Best players were Taylah Clayton, Carleen Ryan, Teagan Sheldon, Teegan Dale, Ebony Wroe & Sherridan Murphy.
The second qualifying game was against western Port and they provided a lot more competition. Final scores were Hallam 5-6-36 v WP 1-2-8. Best players were Taylah Clayton, Tayla Hughes, Teagan Sheldon, Aliesha Hamilton, Katelyn Cox, Charleen Rieck.
With 2 wins this put us into the final against Frankston. Kicking with the wind first we managed 7 shots on goal but could only register 2 goals but kept Frankston scoreless. The second half saw the girl take their game to another level repelling attack after attack and also managed to turn this into forward entries for us and kick another 2 goals against the wind. Final scores were Hallam 4-6-30 to Frankston 0-0-0. Best players were Taylah Clayton, Aliesha Hamilton, Katelyn Cox, Teegan Dale, Samara Hazeldon, Carleen Ryan.
The girls now progress to the State Quarter Final on Tuesday 18th August at Moe. Our opposition will be Lavalla College who we played last year in this game.
