Julia led the Breakers out on sunny but windy Sunday and elected to kick off and have the breeze behind their backs.
The first few minutes were tense, both sides testing each other out.
The midfield is where the match would be won. It would be the home side who would have the first shot on goal.
Ella found herself dribbling past the Mullum defence and was soon one on one with the keeper, but the away side goalie made a great save and the ball was cleared to safety.
Both sides had attacks on goal but neither of these sides could break the deadlock. This was a very entertaining game: 0–0 at half time.
The second half began in the same fashion as the first half, both coaches doing quick rotation of players to keep their teams as fresh as possible.
The two teams constantly tried to break down each other’s defence to no avail. In the final five minutes of the match Bruns surged forward and had a shot on goal only to see the ball go to the wrong side of the post.
The away side attacked and one of their forwards broke through the Breakers’ defence and took on the home side keeper; but once again goalie Zoe made a great save. With only a minute remaining a Mullum player took a shot on goal; the ball was hit high and hard but on target, but the Bruns keeper makes a magnificent save, catching the ball just underneath the crossbar.
There was huge applause around the grounds. The Bruns coach knew that it was close but also thought that was TOP-SHELF save. The final whistle was blown; the game ends 0–0 but was very entertaining. Well done, both teams!
And referee Des had a great time controlling the match. As always the home-side coach was very proud of all the Breakers’ 14 players.
