8/9 GIRLS KNOCKOUT FOOTBALL
A very talented and energetic team of Year 8 and Year 9 St Michael’s girls took on Adelaide High School and Seaview High School on Monday in the first round of the Statewide 8/9 Girls Football Knockout. Our co-Captains, Emma Kilpatrick and Isabella Benedictson, lead from the first bounce until the final siren, guiding the girls to successful wins in both games.
The first game against Adelaide High was a complete domination, scoring 80 points to AH’s zero. All players played to their positions outstandingly with special mention to Skye Nagel, Chloe Spanagel, Lili Dixon and Isabella Gagliardi for their terrific performances.
Special mention also goes to the amazing work all over the ground by our ruck, Zahlia Niemann, and on-ballers Amelie Kempster, Erin O’Shea and Emma Kilpatrick. The second game, much like the first, barely saw the ball reach inside the opposition’s forward half. With a decent rest in between games, the girls were able to continue the pressure and momentum from the first, and once again kept their opposition scoreless.
The girls, and coach, are super excited to take on the next schools in Round Two in the coming weeks.
