Russell Vale VIPERS Match Report
Round 14, Sunday 22nd July 2012
Sunday saw the Russell Vale VIPERS go up against Tarrawanna at Tarrawanna
Wet soggy conditions greeted the Vipers on a lunchtime hit up against the seasoned Tarrawanna side. Linda had the ref’s confused by the stack hat that was worn during warm-up as a bit of a joke regarding the header she did from last week’s game but quickly pointed out to them that she wouldn’t be wearing it during the game, ( she’s a good sport letting us all have a chuckle at her ! )
The starting side saw Renae, Jen, Helen & Nicole up front to set the pace of the game by attacking the Tarrawanna side quickly. Patsy, Wendy , Max , & Erin kept the midfield strong with brilliant passing and running each ball down, the backline of Laura , Tracy , Kerrie E, Linda & Rachael were able to protect the goalie Sheree against the continual big kicks that came sailing towards the net area…After 2nd half sub Jodi & Mel had some fresh legs and fed the ball up to the forward pack which saw Helen have two shots at goal but was unable to get it in the posts, Renae pressured the goalie pretty much trying to scare the pants off her after chasing down a couple of balls that got through the defensive Tarra backline but the goalie held strong to keep the Vipers scoreless. What a champion effort Vipers goalie Sheree put in diving & leaping and smothering the ball to save goals, but unfortunately a few lucky & well struck balls by the Tarrawanna side came away with the win 5/0. The score line should have read 4/0 but Tracey joined the home goal club this week after a brilliant header hit the back of the net at the wrong end…Paula, & Jodi welcome you to the club 😉
“Best of this week trophy is still yet to be given as both Vipers & Tarrawanna were keen to get dry & hit the bar! (So coach will announce it at training on Thursday)…
Again many thanks to Coach & all our Vipers supporters who braved the terrible weather to watch & support our team.
Next week the Vipers go up against Oak Flats @ the Cawley Park Cauldron 11am hope to see you there!!
I’m so very proud to be a member of the Vipers with these wonderfully funny women.
