EASTERN RANGES - 4.2.26
NORTHERN KNIGHTS - 7.8.50
Coming up against last year’s grand finalists Northern Knights, our U18 girls took the fight up against their fancied opponents.
Though up by less than a goal at quarter time, the tide quickly turned against the visitors. Northern scored four goals in the first ten minutes of the second term to race ahead to a 19-point lead. A goal to Shae Collard made it a thirteen-point margin that held until half time.
Two Ranges goals to start the second half quickly brought the contest back to just one point, and it looked like a remarkable comeback was on the cards.
However, Northern proved why they are a premiership contender again this year - keeping Eastern scoreless in the final term and claiming a 24-point win.
The result sees Eastern remain in fifth place, with three wins and two losses.
The next match is on Sunday, April 14, against the third-placed Calder Cannons at Bayswater Oval.
