Match Report Round 14 Sunday August 6th
Port Colts versus Mordialloc Braeside under 10 girls 6/8/17
In a rain affected cold day Mordialloc helped us out with five players so both teams could take the field for our last match of the season.
Ruby started the match off well helping set up at a goal with a great tackle. Tahlia had a couple of great link-up plays through the centre of the ground with one ending in a goal.
Demi played well with her long kicking, hard running and scored a great goal, plus a behind. Zoe battled hard in defence all day. She was impressive with her tackling pressure and setting up play out of defence. Miranda, Matilda, Tully and Eliza kept the ball moving through the midfield while trying to battle the elements.
The cold rain and wind made for a tough game but the girls battled through.
Match Report Round 13 Sunday July 30th
We completed our second last game of the season and there has certainly been improvement in skills from start to finish.
Eloise and Eliza have learnt good positional play and moving around the ball to support their team mates.
Sharni, Tahlia and Molly chased down their opposition and made impressive tackles and defensive play.
Demi and Zoe made tremendous goal saving marks and clearing kicks.

Match Report Round 12 Sunday July 23rd
We can't believe the season is almost finished but we are impressed with how the team has improved over this time. Even our opposition has seen our improvement and made special mention of it at the end of the game.
Team play has improved in general, Eloise and Chloe demonstrated this during the game. Demi, Tahlia and Zoe made great breaking runs, kicks and passes to team mates. Miranda, Elena and Sharni were chasing the ball and clearing it out from the opposition. Molly made a fantastic run from the tap, shrugging off the opposition and passing to Matilda. Tully was a tackling machine shutting down the opposition. Ruby made a great mark off a high ball and Matilda made an awesome smother, which was unfortunately disallowed.
We are looking forward to our final 2 games of the season.
Match Report Round 10 Sunday July 2nd
Our girls were looking forward to the home game to kick off the start of the school holidays. We were in luck only missing two players and hope to have them back with us at the end of the school holidays. Ava-Claire, Eliza, Sharni and Chloe showed great sportsmanship and volunteered to play for the opposition so teams were even and everyone played a full game.
Wednesday night training once again focused on kicking, marking and attacking the loose ball and again the girls incorporated what they learned into their game play. Eliza, Chloe and Ava-Claire were consistent running in and trying to pick up the loose ball. Elena, Tess and Zoe made some fantastic clearing kicks moving the ball out of their zones. Tully, Matilda and Tess made some tremendous marks. Ruby and Sharni were terrific chasing down the opposition and making effective tackles. Tahlia and Demi made some superb attacking runs and each of them managed to kick a behind. Miranda made a partial smother and converted a certain goal into a behind.
See you back at training on 12 July and game on 16 July.
Match Report Round 9 Sunday June 25th
Our U10 Girls enjoyed a home match against East Malvern JFC. East Malvern had 22 team members so they provided some extra players so both teams could play the maximum number of players and had a great game of footy.
At training last week the focus was on kicking, marking, team play and attacking the ball. The girls did well putting their training into practice. Matilda took a good mark. Molly, Tess, Tully and Matilda generated a good passage of play from the backs through to the middle. Eliza and Chloe made some great tackles. Tahlia managed to smother a kick. Zoe and Elena did some great attacking of the ball. Tess was fantastic clearing the ball out. Sharni, Ava Clare and Chloe worked well together in defence and Demi kicked to great goals and 2 behinds.
Training will again focus on kicking, marking and general game play.

Round 8 - Away Game vs Vampires
The team has been putting their training lessons in to practice this week.
Great tackles were made by all, with Tully twice winning free kicks from her strong tackles. Zoe made a fantastic goal save as well as picking up the loose ball; shrugging off tackles and running with the ball.
Miranda, Ruby and Zoe teamed up with hand passes in the middle to get the ball down to our forwards. Demi was consistent in defence and made countless breaks to get the ball out of the back line through to the forwards. Sharni and Eliza showed improvement in their kicks, hand passes and team work. Eloise was impressive with her scrambling for the ball, tackles and hand passes.
The girls continue to improve their footy skills and in this game they showed remarkable improvement in their game play and team work.
Well done girls.

Port Colts vs Mordialloc under 10 girls
Our U10 girls continue to show their developing football skills again last week and we would like to thank Mordialloc Braeside JFC for sharing some players with us, so both teams had all their players on the ground for the entire game.
Demi played well out of the back half, intercepting the ball and kicking long out of the backline.
Zoe demonstrated excellent understanding of team instructions and positioned herself well to protect the goals.
Tahlia had a great first quarter in the midfield. She performed some fantastic tackling and ball use linking up with Miranda through the middle.
Miranda played her best game, so far. She moved into the tackling packs and managed to get the ball out to her team mates.
Elena kicked really well at a full back and hit her target.
Eliza and Shani chase hard all game and won a couple of free kicks.
Ruby made great tackles and got the ball out to Molly. Molly made a smooth hand pass to Demi on the run.
All the girls had a really good tackling game and managed to show us all their skills in a great third quarter.

Match Report Round 5 Sunday May 21
Sunday 21 May was a great day for playing footy and our under 10 girls turned up ready to play.
We welcomed our new players Eliza, Tully and Miranda who showed us their natural tackling and running skills.
Demi again did a fantastic job in in the back and mid-field, running, kicking and taking marks. Tahlia, Molly and Ruby made some great tackles and Matilda, not satisfied with some long kicking, also worked hard chasing down the opposition.
Zoe and Ava-Claire impressed us with their taps at the ball up and Elena and Miranda did a great job chasing down the free ball.
It was great to see the kids following coach Geoff's instructions and spreading out trying to use the whole ground. We're all still learning but most importantly we're still smiling and can't wait for next week!

Match Report Round 4 Sunday May 14
Our U10 Girls have continued with their footy journey and although they didn’t get the win, they did try out some of the skills they have been learning at training.
Tahlia and Zoe made great hand passes and runs while being tackled by the opposition.
Sharni, Chloe and Ava-Claire had some terrific runs in the middle.
Molly, Matilda and Tess were fantastic when in defence, saving goals and making tackles.
Demi tore the opposition apart, kicking goals and making running breaks.
Ruby made a superb hand pass to Matilda who kicked a great goal.
Like all the teams, they each have a turn being forward, back and on the ball and their team play is improving week to week.
It’s wonderful to watch their skills and confidence develop, and more importantly, they keep smiling and having fun.
Match Report Round 3 Sunday May 7
What an exciting day it was.
With a quick briefing on the rules of the game the girls excitedly took to the oval. With five new players taking to the field for the very first time in shiny new footy boots, or second hand ones as the case may be, we were ready to take on Mordy Braeside.
The first quarter was a delight for spectators as they saw how enthusiastic the girls were and their emerging skills on display.
At quarter time it was important for the girls to be shown the modifid way to tackle the opposition players and take charge of the ball.
The umpires kindly turned a blind eye as some of the passes may not have quite been handballed but were all in the spirit of the game.
The parents enjoyed watching the game as much as the girls loved being out there for the first time.
With more girls coming to training and joining the under 10s this week it looks like we are going to have a great season.
