UNDER 8s GEO Jets played their second game of the season against Nixons Giants. Addy Reberger was the Junee Licorice Factory player of the game. Addy demonstrated a real determination to make every loose ball hers. Charlotte Asmus, Sophie Baldock and Claire Rowett were also busy, and are improving rapidly.

Millie Drum and Clare Harris tried hard in their first games and became more confident as the game progressed. Scarlett Wilson and Holly Fitzhardinge were able to get open in attack and really helped to move the ball toward our goal. 

Under 12 GEO Jewels ran into the top team after a big win last week. Although they lost 36-3 to Nixons Steel, the Jewels tried their hardest. Ali Corbett was player of the week. Ali’s effort to support her teammates was phenomenal, particularly her work to get open without the ball in attack. Defensively, Ellie Baldock, Chloe Masters and Caidence Reberger all worked tirelessly, while Zoe Fitzhardinge, Erica Wooden and Maddi Huard tried hard to move the ball into goal scoring positions.  

Storm helped secure its place at the top of the ladder in Wagga’s Under 18s division. The girls started strong with usual shooters, Madison and Brooke Harpley, working in defence and defenders, Lily Hodgson and Elise Drum, taking their chances at shooting. Jacinta Cooper and Sarah Stevens helped keep the ball moving from the defensive end to attack. Storm beat Uranquinty Diamonds 59-9.
