This is the side’s second game against Healesville and the coach said they couldn’t ask for any more than the team efforts given by each player.
“Our continued growth in understanding pressure and movement to get the footy first was heart-warming,” they said.
“These girls play footy for each other and for team results.
“And even when given the opportunity to play in different roles, each player stood up and gave it their all.”
Best: Georgia, Lily, Indi, Ruby D-T, Renee, Jasmin.
Mount Evelyn 6.8.44 d Monbulk 3.9.27
This was a tough contest for the boys.
The defence was under a lot of pressure and stood up well.
