THE Bass Coast Breakers claimed some revenge for last year’s grand final defeating Tyabb by 83 points on Sunday.
There was much anticipation leading up to Sunday’s match at Dalyston, with Tyabb being the only team to have beaten the Breakers in their short history.
The game began with unsettled nerves as the Breakers were determined to get the victory this time around.
The opening minutes of the game were fast paced as the ball pinged around the ground.
A long shot on goal from Breakers’ star goal kicker Tayla Stahl-Smith was successful, calming the nerves of her players and letting them settle into more focussed style of play.
The shift in focus coupled with the high intensity led to a 17-point lead for the Breakers at quarter time.
The commitment and desperation from both teams led to some overcrowding, particularly in the Breakers’ forward line where the majority of the game was played.
The Breakers did well to discipline their midfield and back line in the second half of the game, creating more space and more opportunities for the forwards.
Despite the scoreboard, Tyabb had some good passages of play throughout the afternoon and kept their heads in the game.
The Breakers’ demonstrated solid defence and commitment throughout the afternoon and secured a very impressive win over the reigning premier.
Congratulations to Georgia Slavin who kicked her first goal for the Breakers on Sunday.
It was another great demonstration of team work from the Breakers with the better players being Emma Volard, Jenna Russo and Ella Angarane.
Goal kickers were Tayla Stahl-Smith 2, Kelly O’Neill 2, Sophie Bolding 2, Emma Volard 1, Ella Angrane 1, Ella Cargill 1, Kate Edney 1 and Georgia Slavin 1.
Bass Coast plays their next game against Seaford at Belvedere Reserve on Saturday, June 9 at 12.30pm.
