The Bruns Breakers girls’ football team travelled from Bangalow to Pottsville on a cold and wet Friday night.
Julia led the team out onto the field missing a few players through injury and circumstance.
Pottsville kicked off and attacked straightaway; the Bruns team had no time to settle and found themselves 1–0 down within first few minutes.
The Breakers could not find any rhythm and were being hustled off the ball. The opposition mounted attack after attack but the Bruns defence and stand-in goalkeeper Lily did outstandingly in the cold, wet conditions.
With minutes remaining in the first half the Breakers started controlling the ball and were making chances of their own but could not find the back of the net. The ref blew his whistle for half time.
The second half began with both sides looking for goals. Both Jana and Ruby came close with shots. The Bruns team was tiring against a much bigger and physical team and conditions were terrible.
In the last 10 minutes Pottsville gained control and found the net three more times. The Brunswick team never gave up; they were bruised but tonight was not their night.
The coach and parents were very proud of them all.
The teams wishes Tess a quick recovery with her illness.
