After a physical encounter Geelong was able to come out on top of a determined Breakwater Eagles and continue their unbeaten start to the season.
The Eagle`s defense was stretched to their limits during the first half having to endure a barrage of attacking play by Geelong. Countless missed opportunities should have seen Geelong comfortably ahead at the break, but we had to settle for a scoreless half.
The persistence paid off at the 52 minute mark when Jaymie headed off 2 opponents to square the ball to Millie who then sent Suzanne through to slot it into the back of the net. The goal was enough to ignite our passion for the ball, which saw the Geelong girls relentlessly beat their much bigger opponents to the ball. The creative play of Angela in the middle, the dependable Danni in defense and the quick and “gutsy” Suzanne up front ensured that Geelong sits at the top of the ladder unbeaten.
