Kyby AFLW side wins again

Kybybolite has made it two from two in the Veolia Limestone Coast Women’s League.

In perfect conditions, round two kicked off on Sunday at Malseed Park with KWFC meeting the other new side in the league, Kalangadoo.

 Although there was some inaccurate kicking in front of goal, KWFC were able to notch up their second win of the season from two starts.

KWFC sized up last week’s match winners early on, starting strong and after half time the result was never really in doubt.

A more open style of play allowed both teams to run into space, creating opportunities on goal.

Katie Brodie and Annabel Mould were dominant in the ruck, and with KWFC’s on ball brigade of Brown, Riley, Smart and McElroy, it wasn’t long before goals were on the board after some great work from Emma Rasheed and Hayley Smart.

The second quarter was filled with some solid running passages and marking.

Tyler Atkinson was getting plenty of hard ball up forward and along with Danielle Moore, provided great targets for the midfield.

The KWFC defence was strong, rebounding attacks through Nash Hahn, Crook, Kramm and Dahlenburg.  A late goal to Shakira Stuchbery saw the half time scores KWFC 3.5 to Kalangadoo 0.2

KWFC took control in the third quarter with many forward movements , resulting in great scoring opportunities, although inaccurate with five behinds scored.

Kalangadoo’s defence were putting up a great fight under pressure but just couldn’t stop KWFC’s repeat entries.

The fourth quarter was all one way traffic with the ball locked in KWFC’s forward 50m.

The attacking plays and high tackle pressure were great to watch and kept the umpires busy.  

A great soccer goal from Sophie Watson and five more behinds secured the win Kyby 4.10, Kalangadoo 0.2.

Best players for KWFC were Tyler Atkinson with her attack on the contest, Hayley Smart was in and under everything, Mel Hutchesson provided a great target in goals, Emma Rasheed ran all over the ground making contests. Casey McElroy was a wrecking ball and Tamika Nash-Hahn rebounded off the back flank and set up many attacks.

KWFC move to second on the ladder behind league leaders Millicent who also had their second win.

In other round 2 matches, Millicent defeated Glencoe 2.4 (16) to 0.1 (1), South Gambier had an easy win 4.7 (31) to 0.1 (1) over East Gambier and North Gambier and West Gambier had a draw 1.1 (7) apiece.

This week they take on East Gambier at McDonald Park, Friday night at 7.50pm

Kybybolite will host a home round on the afternoon of Sunday, February 25.
