U11s — United 13 def. Deni 6

The girls started off nervously against a very good side.

Our defence was tight and we tried hard throughout the game to make space.

Keep working hard at training girls, the improvement has been amazing.

Awards: Shyloh Chique, Abbey Stobaus and Grace Moyle.

U13B

We had to change our game to suit the conditions with us starting with a wet slippery court.

We carried forward with our good form, with all players giving 100 per cent to their role in the plays.

Our strength is in our defensive pressure and this allowed for lots of turnovers which gave us more scoring opportunities.

A great game girls.

Awards: Macy Larkin, Madi Sawyer, Molly McLeod and Ella McCormick.

U13s — United 44 def. Deni 26

With a slippery start to the game the girls came out strong.

The girls showed some strong leads using big voices and encouraged each other along the way.

We showed some great defensive skills allowing us to display countless intercepts.

Great work.

Awards: Gabbey Beveridge, Hayley Depace and Maia Roberts.

U15s — United 24 lost to Deni 35

The focus was about “TEAM” — being there for each other, using voice and supporting the efforts of everyone.

The girls came out firing in the second quarter.

Some forced positional changes took some adjusting to and we ran out of time.

We achieved our ‘goal’ today girls.

We are very proud of you.

Awards: Abbey Watson, Jaymi Clancy and Tayla Wagner.

U17s — United 32 def. Deni 24

A really tight, hard fought tussle against quality opposition.

Great tight defensive pressure when it counted, resulted in a few goal turnovers and a fantastic win.

Awards: Hollie Davidson, Kate Pearson and Jess Gould.

C Res — United 44 defeated Deni 38

The girls played a tough four quarters and again showed great teamwork playing their positions.

Our defence put in a solid effort adapting to a difficult attack end.

Awards: Rani Dobbyn and Tessa Smith.

C Grade — United 49 def. Deni 33

The end score did not totally reflect what a tough, physical match this was.

The girls were strong for four quarters coming out with another win.

Awards: Dakota Leitch and Kiarna Denahy.

B Grade — United 49 defeated Deni 42

A great start from the B graders set up the win with our girls treasuring possession and converting at a high rate to get ourselves a nice lead at half time.

Awesome team effort from everyone to finish the job and take a seven goal win over the top side.

Awards: Molly Johnson and Hannah Poole.

U12s — Blue

On Friday night Echuca United under 12’s Blue side came up against the Rochester side.

It was a hard fought game and one that put the boy’s defensive skills to the test, but they held their own very well.

A couple of new faces in the team were great to see and this week will see a full team sheet for the first time in a few weeks, which we are looking forward to.

This week’s awards went to: Dallas Price who returned to form after a couple of weeks off, Max Thornton has found his love for defending the back line and doing it very well, Brodie Hartford played out of his skin all night and Kody Kendrick played his first game this year and was a welcome return to the team.

The Echuca United Blue’s next game is this Sunday at 10am where they will kick of the Inclusion day at the Echuca United ground.

U14s — United 5.10.40 def. Deniliquin 2.4.16

This week we were set the challenge of taking on the unbeaten Rams.

The boys got off to a great start and put pressure on from the get go.

With Dylan Purbrick, Jarryd Taylor and Max Childs working hard in the middle to provide opportunities up forward.

Kaydon Blachford worked hard in the forward line with Will Graham providing some muscle off half forward and Max Collins again proving a force at full forward.

The boys down back again just got the job done with their no fuss approach taking the game on whenever they can. Beau Trahar produced a solid game at full-back.

At the final siren the boys came away with the win in an awesome team effort.

Goals: Kaydon Blachford (2), Max Collins, Max Childs, Jarryd Taylor (1)

Awards: Dylan Purbrick, Will Graham, Kaydon Blachford, Jarryd Taylor, Max Childs, Beau Trahar, Rylan Johnson.
