The Bass Coast Breakers hosted the St Kilda Sharks at Wonthaggi on Sunday in what was a significant day for women‘s football in the area with foundation Breakers player Ella Cargill becoming the first player to play 50 games of female football locally. While 50 games may not seem like a lot, it’s a great example of the newly established pathway now available for girls and women to continue playing from juniors all the way through to senior football.

The large crowd was entertained from the opening bounce with the first quarter turning into the Angarane show with the sisters kicking the whole score - Tess with three goals and Ella two. Their job was made easy through great delivery from Tayla Stahl-Smith and the other midfielders.

Kicking with the wind in the second, the Breakers once again dominated the play adding another four goals for the quarter. Bonnie Mullens in her return from injury and Carly Heislers remained composed through the centre, helping to repel any St Kilda forward attacks. Kay Thomas and Kelly O’Neill provided some flair through the midfield using their speed and athleticism to advantage and linking up well with Sophie Bolding and Jenna Russo to clear the ball swiftly through the midfield.

The second half was much the same with the Breakers not giving an inch. First gamers Nadia Ryan and Laura Kew showed good signs on debut, getting involved early with great defensive pressure and strong tackling. Ella Cargill finished her milestone game with four goals, providing a strong marking target in the forward line and finishing off with her usual polish.
