The Brunswick Breakers girls football team trained for two months pre-season and we’re eager for the competition to commence.

The first game of the season was away at Byron with a final score of 0–0.

The first Bruns Breakers home game of the season was held on a beautiful Mothers Day. This was going to be a tough match against visiting side Pottsville.

Brunswick were missing one of their strikers and before the kick-off four more players were feeling unwell. Captain Julia led the team out and the home side started the match. The game was evenly matched for the first 15 minutes then the Pottsville team upped the ante, relentless attack after attack, but the Brunswick team held firm.

High rotation of players for the home were not helping at all; it was making the Brunswick side unstable. Goal keeper Zoe was very busy making sure nothing went past her into the back of the net.

As the first half was coming to a close the home team made one mistake and the opposition striker took aim and blasted the ball high and wide of the out-stretched hand of the keeper, one nil to Pottsville.

As the half-time whistle blew the coach was looking at his players as they walked off; some of them did not look well. Many changes of position were made: goal keeper and one of the strikers exchange positions; mid-field reshuffled; the coach did not know how many of the team could go out in the second half.

The second half started with more relentless attacks from the opposing side but the Bruns girls were holding firm; the back four were having a fantastic game.

New player Ella capitalised on a great move and stormed into the Pottsville penalty area only to see her shot saved by the keeper.

This Brunswick team is full of spirit but it was not their day and the final whistle sounded the full-time final score Brunswick 0 Pottsville 1.

All the girls tried hard and many thanks to all parents, the girls love your support.
