Gippsland Power girls have drawn with Murray Bushrangers in round 3 of the girls TAC Cup competition.

The Power jumped out to a 16 point lead at half time, but could only add one more goal for the second half.

Nikia Webber kicked 2 goals and Tyla Hanks was named best for the Power. They now sit 5th on the ladder with 1, win, 1 loss and 1 draw.

“The Power got away to a good start with a dominant second quarter, to take the lead going into the half-time break. Their crisp ball use and ability to hit targets seemed to be the difference in the opening term of the game.”

Tyla Hanks had a huge game for Gippsland, dominating across the middle of the ground and down back. Her strong hands and ability to read the footy was important as it allowed her to position herself in damaging areas and help to open up space for her team mates. The likes of Megan Fitzsimon also impressed for the Power in their first draw of the season. Fitzsimon competed hard for the footy and used her thumping kick to help propel her team forward.”
