What a proud moment for Yarrawonga with the unfurling of the 2017 U 16’s Premiership flag being unfurled by Kaitlyn Cummins.
At the first whistle the game was there for the taking with the goals being scored at both ends of the court, although Yarra did finish with a 2-goal lead.
The second quarter was a different scene.
The young Pigeon girls had winners all over the court.
At one point in this quarter they were up by 7 goals, ending the quarter with a 5 goal lead.
The wind played a part in the third quarter and the shooters were finding it hard to score.
The two Georgia’s (Kennedy and Lawless) were doing well, but Wodonga outscored Yarra, the girls held a narrow lead of 2 goals at 3 quarter time.
With the conditions playing a big part in the outcome of the game, the Pigeons battled it out and Wodonga just kept coming back.
