On Saturday morning the senior women’s squad had their first hit out for the year in a practice match at Murphy Reserve against Deer Park.
For most of the girls it was their first game of footy, however, it only took a couple of quarters for everyone to band together and play as a team. A marvellous effort given the lack of game time, and a credit to the leadership group and more experienced players assisting our new recruits.
The third quarter belonged to the Port fillies, kicking 7 goals and the game was ours for the taking. However, the kicking efficiency and experience of Deer Park proved to be too good for the Colts in the final term.
We look forward to season 2017 with lots of new and promising talent emerging over the weekend. There were many future shining stars!
