After their valiant draw the week before, the spirits of the Brunswick Babes were high at football training last week.
The girls were bubbling with enthusiasm in pre-game warm up and Captain Bracie led the 10 girls out.
This promised to be a tough game with the Babes fielding 10 players and Bangalow with a full team and two subs.
Bangalow took the kick-off and 20 seconds later Brunswick Babes were down 1–0. They had not switched on for the match – but that early lapse did the trick and the team were on fire for the rest of first half.
Striker Isabelle had her scoring boots well and truly on with four well taken first half goals.
The half time score was 4-1 to Brunswick.
A much tighter game was played in the second half and a tiring 10 girl Brunswick team kept pressing forward eager for more goals – they came very close on many occasions but injuries sustained in the first half were starting to take their toll. But there is fire in this team’s defence – goalkeeper and midfield were determined their goal line was not going to be breached.
The final score for the match was Brunswick 4 to Bangalow 1. The whole Brunswick team were applauded as they left the pitch; the coach and parents all very proud of this first win of the season.
A great effort by all 10 girls. They were tired and bruised, ice packs were applied to knees but all were smiling. Well done girls!
