On Saturday the 12th February at 11:30am, Gippsland Power Girls take on the Calder Cannons at Gaskin Park, Churchill.
Gippsland Power returns home to Churchill to take on Calder Cannons in what could be the Power’s tightest contest to-date. Though Gippsland has suffered some heavy defeats – three 59-plus points – there are few teams who fight out a game like the Power, never dropping their heads or intensity. They know the ground at Churchill well, and will be eyeing off the home ground advantage to get the crowd involved. The Cannons managed to get up over the Knights in Round 2 after a loss to Eastern Ranges in Round 1, but will be coming off a bye last weekend. That means they might be fresher later in the game but could take a little while to find the game intensity.
Ash Centra has been a standout Under 16s player thus far in season 2022, standing tall for the Power in tough circumstances. In the loss to the Falcons, Centra slotted two goals, including a long-range set shot following a contested mark. Along with another future talent in 15-year-old Ella Stoddart the Power’s future looks bright. From a shorter-term view, Yasmin Duursma and Macie Gilmour are two who can impact around the stoppages. They will tackle the likes of Abbey McDonald and Reese Sutton, with Tahlia Read another player in strong form for the Cannons this season.
