Week 2 - Friday 12 May
Pulteney 2:1 (13) defeated by Immanuel 12:8 (80)
There was much excitement and nervous anticipation as the inaugural Pulteney Girls AFL team boarded the bus for their first game against Immanuel College.
The opening bounce saw Immanuel off to a quick start. However, as the game progressed our players gained a feel for the tempo resulting in a more competitive contest throughout the remaining three quarters. The smiles on the players faces was priceless and goals scored were met with loud applause from the crowd and cause for celebration on the field. Their determination, support for one another and willingness to learn will keep the team in good stead for future games.
There were a number of standout performances throughout the match all of which contributed to the success Pulteney achieved during the match. Some of these included Imogen Evans’ ferocious tackle to stop her opponent in her tracks. Natasha Holmes’ repeated clearances from stoppages. Laura Argy’s work ethic to get to contest after contest. Tayler Price’s uncanny ability to find the ball and use it to good effect and Anna Evans’ ability to do an outstanding job as the loose player across half-back led to her gathering many possession and kicking a late goal.
All are looking forward to developing their skills at training each Thursday and the opportunity to compete again on Friday 26 May at Pulteney’s home ground against St Peter’s Girls.
