Fillies fire against City sides
The Carlton fillies produced their best team performance of the season when they took on a talented City side on Saturday.
Carlton's second-half effort in the filllies clash was fantastic with Jess Aspinall a standout in defence.
With Jasmine Clarke and Eliza Telfer also impressing during their time in goals, Carlton only conceded one goal in the 5-1 result.
Alexandra Giammattei, who stepped up to play her second match of the day, provided a highlight with a very skilful individual goal.
Rhianna Pillar and Jacinta Weston also starred, launching some great attacking raids and forcing the City backs to work hard in defence.
This was an enjoyable game for the spectators to watch with good skills and plenty of team spirit on show from players on both sides.
Thanks to referee Rory McDonagh for a great game.
The final score for the junior colts game was was City 6 to Carlton 1.
The City players started strongly and showed good skills and teamwork to put Carlton under pressure from the kick-off.
Ana Kaufusi and Kayden Hinze played well in defence throughout for Carlton and never gave up.
The score was 3-0 to City at half-time.
Although Carlton improved after the break and pulled a goal back, the City attack scored another three to run out deserved 6-1 winners.
Carlton's 10 ladies performed extremely well against a strong City team.
They did especially well considering four of the Carlton girls had played one or more full games prior.
We were very happy with a goalless result and both teams played in good spirits.
Both teams were desperate for the win and with the score locked at 2-all at half-time Carlton had to battle until the end to grab the points.
Carlton scored late to open up a 4-3 lead and managed to hold City out to claim victory.
The players definitely earned their three points this week.
