MONASH UNIVERSITY MONDAY REVIEW – ROUND 1

MONASH UNIVERSITY LEADERSHIP ROUND 1 – MATCH OF THE ROUND

MONASH UNIVERSITY UNDER 18’S GIRLS DIVISION 2

PORT MELBOURNE/SOUTH MELBOURNE DISTRICTS v ST. KILDA CITY

SUNDAY APRIL 10 – 5PM – MOORLEIGH RESERVE

Port Melbourne/South Melbourne Districts has started its 2022 season with a nail-biting win over St. Kilda City under lights at Moorleigh Reserve.

The Bolts where able to stave off the Saints repeat forward 50 entries in the final minutes of the game, holding on to claim victory by five points.

With the lights in full effect for the second half, the ball movement opened up from the first half with some exciting passages of play from end to end, as the lead exchanged hands a number of times in the second half.

“It was very tight game; we knew coming in St. Kilda City are a good team with plenty of depth” Kuys continued.

“It was a challenge, but our girls played really well and were able to nullify some of their more experienced players.”

As to be expected after such a long lay off between games, the pressure within the contest was high as both teams looked to get off to a great start and whomever gained clean possession from stoppage dominated the territory battle.

“It’s a long time to not be playing footy for, so we were a bit rusty earlier on” said Port Melbourne/South Melbourne coach Melissa Kuys.

“But they really worked hard and improved throughout the game.”

With a strong alliance between both clubs historically, this was the first time a combined Under 18’s Girls Port Melbourne/South Melbourne ‘Bolts’ team took the field to represent both clubs.

“It’s very fresh, but super exciting,” noted Kuys.

“It was a great result first up.”
