Round 1 v Northern @ Northern

For the first game of the season the girls had a great start, even with only 11 girls. We kicked off to Northern and the ball ended up in Selei from Northerns hands, and she got through the first few tackles and made a 40 metre break down the sidelines, looking to be in for sure to be a try, but was chased down by Niki (new soccer convert), stopping the try. Awesome work. From this the girls lifted and the poor discipline from Northern played into our hands, with 6 or 7 penalties in a row gaining us about 60metres down the field. A few swift moves from the backs and Sao was in for a try, converted by Niki. 7-0 to Powerhouse.
Great defence and excellent attacking and ball security saw the girls keep applying pressure to northern, who kept giving away penalties. Sao got in for another try under the posts, converted by Niki, 14-0 powerhouse.
Unfortunately Northern got a try just before half time. Half time score 14-5.
Great effort put in by the grils in the second half, unfortunately the girls just ran out of puff as they were now playing 11 v 14 (unlike the first half were northern were only paying with 1 to even up the game). Northern ran in 4 trys in the second half.
Final score 25-14 to Northern.
Team is looking to have a solid base for the season and with a few people to come back from injury, there should be a few wins on the board this year.
3,2,1 for the game went to 3 points Gill Jarvis, 2 Julie Savoie, adn 1 point to Corlyn Gray (Dino).
