A Grade

Yarrawonga 58 def Corowa 34.

Another page written in the YFNC history book with Bridget Cassar playing her 200th A Grade game for the Pigeons.

Bridget and her father Bert Tait also added to that the first ever father/daughter combination to have played 200 senior games in the OMFNL. Fabulous family achievement and the club extends congratulations to them both.

It was an even first quarter with Yarrawonga having a four point lead at the first break, but by half time the Pigeons had stretched the lead to 10.

Under 16s player Indi Frauenfelder seems to be securing her spot in the team with her steady performance both at WA and also in goals.

In a quarter in the circle Indi shot with an almost 100% score rate finishing with eight goals from nine attempts.

Malory Nankervis was back in the side at goal defence and applied pressure causing concern for the Corowa shooters. However it was difficult to defend Roos shooter Sophie Hanrahan whose accuracy kept Corowa in the game.

Nevertheless the Pigeons girls were determined this game was going to be a win for Bridge and capitalising on turnovers the girls came out victorious by 24.

Best: H Symes, M Nankervis. Goals: B Cassar 41, A Jones 9, I Frauenfelder 8.

B Grade

Yarrawonga 52 def Corowa 27.

was a fast-paced first five minutes in the B Grade game seeing the Pigeons out-class the Roos with seven goals on the board before Corowa scored.

played a great game, it was good for the team to have Maddie Kennedy back after knee surgery.

The Pigeons were dominant all over the court for the majority of the game and accurate passing resulted in a clean, open attacking game.

Ange Tyrell and Kate Robilliard rotated well in the ring keeping the Corowa defenders on the back foot.

Consistently increasing the margin quarter by quarter the girls finished with a convincing win.

Best: C Whinray, E Dickins. Goals: K Robilliard 28, A Tyrell 24.

C Grade

Yarrawonga 61 def Corowa 12.

Bottom of the ladder Corowa were always going to struggle against the third placed Pigeons and that was evident from the start.

By half time Yarrawonga were up by 21. The Pigeons were winning in all positions and the Yarra defenders captured every opportunity to ensure any rebounds converted to a score.

Zoe Jones’ dominance through the centre and Steph Kennedys sensational attacking placed pressure on the struggling Roos.

It was difficult to single out any best players from a confident and winning Pigeon side who won 61-12.

Best: S Kennedy, Z Jones. Goals: T Bogle 27, E Soutter 26, S Kennedy 8.

Under 16

Yarrawonga 57 def Corowa 27.

With only a lead of four at the first turn the Pigeons stepped on the pedal to push the half time lead out by 19.

Tilly Kennedy read the play beautifully encouraging positive play across the court.

The defenders were also excellent for all four quarters turning the game around by driving the ball down the court.

Eliza York had a sensational game netting 43 goals from 48 attempts.

There was little the Corowa coaches could do on this occasion as Yarra certainly had the game in the bag winning 57-27.

Best: T Kennedy, A Chapman. Goals: E York 43, A Chapman 14.
