Tigers maul Demons in Monday night clash

Round 5 of Limestone Coast Womens Football continued Monday night when North Gambier came up against South Gambier at Vansittart Park under the brisk fading night sky.

The game got under way and the first few minutes of the opening term was a scrappy and tight contest with neither side able to get clear possession out of the contest.

But it was the Tigers that broke out of the shackles first and got the game going while the Demons scrapped in and under the pack.

North Gambier was up and about and continued to play to its strengths and South Gambier was on the chase but the endeavour was never questioned.

The Tigers held a commanding lead which could have been larger if it weren’t for inaccuracy in front of goal and went in to the change with a 32-point buffer.

After the quarter-time break North reigned supreme and continued with the same form as the opening term, being first at the ball and making the most of the play to increase its score.

South was on point with ball in hand but the efforts were wasted at the goal line due to the defensive pressure of the Tigers, but the tenacity of the Demons was on show and the players never gave up.

The Tiger army went into the half time break with a comfortable 46-point lead before South started to build some confidence in the second half with bone-bruising tackles, making North earn every possession.

The Demons’ intensity was high both at the ball and at the contest, but North continued to build on its lead with polished skill and was not worried by the pressure.

At the end of the third quarter, it was still the Tigers in front by 61 points.

It was a gallant final term from the Demons, which managed to move the ball down to the goal line and put its first score on the board, while the Tigers kicked four goals of their own.

North held strong in the term by using the ball well and looking for team mates while the rebuilding Demons showed patches of brilliance, but it was a little too late for the side with North powering to an 83-point victory.

North Gambier’s better players were Libby Howe-Morgan, Luca Roulstone, Alice Tentye and Laura Chester while South Gambier named Leonie Robertson, Dakota Trotter, Bailey Broome and Jarrah Altschwager as its top performers.
