Girls’ silky skills bamboozle Tatura

By Riverine Herald

Echuca Youth Girls 12.9 (81) def. Tatura 1.0 (6)

A TERRIFIC effort of team play, and hard work in the packs, saw the Echuca Youth Girls football team thoroughly deserve its win against the determined and improved new team of Tatura at its home ground.

Although the scoreboard does not reflect the tight contest, it does show the solid teamwork up forward by all, led by the multiple goalkickers of Nikita Meloury, Shea Oliver and Maddi Huisman, who each showed they were prepared to run and back up each other.

Around the ground, Chelsea Wright and Keely Mitsch showed great game sense, in creating space as well as some fine crumbing work around the packs.

The run and chase of Ash Kelly and Alivia Noonan was a great example for their teammates, while working hard in heavy traffic were Tameka Polememi and Caitlyn Smith, who created many breaks from the packs up forward.

The team can feel very proud of their efforts as they continue to improve, bringing their hand and foot skills towards the level we all aspire to.
