Yarrawonga 34 defeated by Corowa 46
A very warm day with a slightly different team than last year.
Welcome to Rebecca Carlyle in defense, and handy fill in Laura Davis.
A very hard and fast game, both teams came out firing.
By half time the Pigeons were slightly up, but that quickly changed in the third quarter with Corowa having a huge goaling run with a 17 goal quarter to Yarrawonga’s 6.
Defeated on the day by a strong Corowa Rutherglen side, it was great to see young players coming up through the ranks.

Yarrawonga 45 defeated Corowa 37
Another intense game with lots to prove from both sides.
Welcome back to new shooter Laura Gorman who had a great game and to talented fill-ins Paris Bonat and Abbey Jones.
The girls led at each change, with Corowa Rutherglen coming back in the third quarter, but just wasn’t enough in the end.

Yarrawonga 46 defeated Corowa 43
What a great game to watch, a fast-high energy game which saw the Pigeons collect their first win for the season.
New recruit Elle Brooks played C Grade this week, along with Leah Rowe who played her first Yarrawonga game.
With a few injuries already, under 16 players Kyah Harvey and Eloise Lynch stepped up and did a great job.
Also in the team this year is Georgia Lawless who played Under 16s last year.
The girls were even at three-quarter time.
With Corowa Rutherglen missing a lot of goals in the last quarter and Yarra much more accurate, the Pigeons were able to increase their lead capitalizing with a win in the last.
Tayla Bogle playing defence had lots of intercepts.

Yarrawonga 31 defeated by Corowa 40
A very close game all day saw Corowa Rutherglen have a large last quarter to come away with a win.
Lots to take away from their first game, the Pigeons new Under 16 side shows loads of potential.
Some great passages of play and a great game to watch.
