Girls footy kicks off at Snowtown

By TW girls U13 coach Michael Slattery

The Northern Plains Female Football League kicked off their very first round on Sunday the 28th April with three U13 and three U16 games held on the Snowtown Football oval.

The weather was ideal, mild and sunny as many young girls got their first taste of competition football.

The oval is divided up such that three games can be played at the same time with rules modified to encourage teamwork and help the girls learn the game.

Well done to the hosts Snowtown on successfully running the first round.

The seven Two Wells U13 girls came up against Mallala girls who seemed to have a bit more fitness and accurate kicking and ran away with a solid 9-4 to 3-2 win.

All the girls had fun and showed signs of improvement and understanding of the game as the game went on and are looking forward to the following weeks.

The U16 girls also played against Mallala, however they were able to field 10 girls and this helped with less ground to be covered by each player.  Mallala were also victors in this game kicking 8-0 to 1-8, with Mallala again more accurate with their kicking across the field and shooting for goals.

It was exciting to see in both games the girls grow in confidence as the games progressed with all girls showing a lot of potential.

Two Wells will host the competition on Sunday May 12.

This is a great opportunity to come down and cheer on the newest Two Wells footballers.

U13 games at 10am and U16 at 11am.
