Russell Vale VIPERS Match Report
Round 3, Sunday 29th April 2012
Today the Russell Vale VIPERS woman’s over 30’s had their second game of the season against Tarrawanna at Tarrawanna Oval…
The Vipers were keen to make the most of the wet weather conditions to see if all the extra training that Paul Dunham (coach) had been applying was going to pay off against a very strong experienced Tarrawanna side.
The match started very well with a early run from a brilliant ball from Erin that had Renae and Rachael up in the goal square after 5mins looking to put it on the back of the net, the defense of the Tarrawanna side held strong and quickly kept the midfield and backs of Russell Vale working hard to keep control.
Laura, Wendy and Patsy worked well to feed it up the left hand side to get it to the forwards of Helen and Nicole who had some brilliant breaks to get up closer to the oppositions goal but with the slippery conditions it was tough to get a good hit on the ball. Cheryl , Linda & Paula held strong up the right flank but with the experience of the Tarrawanna team once the first goal was scored it seemed that our super Goalie Sheree was continually peppered with hits on the goal so even though Bonser, Tracey continued to try & hold them out they got past us and scored.
The second half proved to be a little better for the Vipers with the experience of Max in the middle & the speed of Jennifer on the right and the weather improving a goal looked like a sure thing only to find we were off side…..
End score was Tarrawanna 8 / Vipers 0 …Big thanks to the Tarrawanna side for a fun game against a lovely bunch of woman….We are looking forward to meeting them again in round 8 and hopefully we will get some in the back of the net at their end next time!
All the Vipers played a fantastic game showing great improvement each week; hopefully we all pull up not too sore and OK for the next round……
Round 3 done with, the following week seeing us at home the Cawley Park Cauldron to Russell Vale Pink on Friday night at 7pm…..hope see you all there!
