KYABRAM-ECHUCA Rats were excited to get their grand final re-match underway against Benalla. Kyabram-Echuca girls steadied themselves and led in defence by goalie Sally Thompson managed to block out every one of Benalla’s attacks. Each time Katie Tonkin and Ruth Goode, confident in their skills, blocked the Benalla ball with precision.
The Rats scored freely but Benalla continued to pressure the Kyabram-Echuca defence, but the Rats were not worried. The final goal was a whole team effort, started by a tackle from Katie Tonkin, fed to Therese Shields down the sideline and into Courtney Thompson. The ball was then ping-ponged round the circle and through the Benalla defence before Keeley Thompson could flick it up past the keeper.
Kyabram-Echuca wins 4-1. Best and Fairest: Katie Tonkin 3, Keeley Thomson 2, Ruth Goode 1
