Julia led the team out on a sunny breezy day. The home side elected to have the breeze at their backs in the first half.

Casino kicked off looking very confident passing the ball about, but the home side were eager for the ball, the tackles hard and fair, the Breakers attacking mainly on their left side and cutting away up with no luck on goal.

With ten minutes to go in the first half, midfielder Ella took on the opposition dribbling the ball down the left flank, entering the penalty area, and heard the call from Izzy to square pass, which she did, and the Bruns striker deftly put the ball past the keeper and into the net 1–0 Breakers.

Huge applause from the home side fans.

The ref blew the whistle for half time with the home side bubbling to be winning as they had not scored a goal in weeks.

The second half began with Casino trying their best to get a goal back but the Brunswick defence held firm. The battle was happening in the midfield; this was where the game could be won or lost with both sides fiercely contesting the ball.

Casino mounted an attack and broke the home-side defence with only the keeper to beat, but what a keeper this Brunswick side has – she came out without fear and smothered the shot.

The Breakers quickly counter-attacked, a full-length-of-the-field move, which finally found Tiare in front of the goal, but the ball bounced higher on this hard pitch and her shot went over the crossbar: unlucky.

Had she scored that would surely have sealed the win as there were only minutes to go.

The ref blew for full time; the Brunswick team won their first home game of the season after having many scoreless draws. Well done, girls, as the coach always writes, so very proud of them all. A special mention to Saje: great game today.

Bring on the second half of the season.
