Women‘s football was again played at Eastern Park on Sunday with Warragul lndustrials taking on second placed Seaford.

A very even game of football in the first quarter saw both sides locked at seven points apiece after new player and best on ground Sarah Mayman levelled the scores at the end of the first quarter.

Persistent attack of the football during the game by both teams made for a close game right up to to half time, but it was the more determined Seaford with some free flow football that gave them the upper hand before the half time siren, kicking three more goals and a handy 21 point lead with plenty of work to be done by the inexperienced Dusties team.

The Dusties never gave up and the third quarter was a good start for the girls with Mel Burns kicking a Dusties goal, but the Seaford players’ on-field strength and intimidation proved to be a telling factor of the game, again booting three goals in the third quarter and another five in the final term to hand the Seaford women an easy 72 point victory over a depleted Dusties side.

The Bass Coast Breakers continued their winning streak on Sunday with a close 13-point win over the Eastern Devils at Inverloch.

It was a slow and windy start which led to a close score line at halftime, where the Breakers lead 2.5.17 t0 1.1.7.

The Eastern Devils matched the Breakers' intensity and a few straight kicks from the Devils would have changed the score line and the game entirely. At half time Breakers coach Steve Kenny embraced the challenge being thrown down by the Devils.

"This is good for us, we need the challenge. How are we going to respond?” he asked his team. It was clear that the Breakers needed to step up and coach Kenny wanted the team to show more physicality and commitment in the second half.

The Breakers started the third quarter with the wind behind them and used it to their advantage, adding a couple of quick goals and stretching the lead to just over 20 points at three quarter time. But the Devils never backed down and began to control the play for much of the last quarter, putting the Breakers under serious pressure. Luckily the Devils couldn’t convert their opportunities and the Breakers came away with the win.
