QAFLW Reserves Match Report – Aspley v Southport

In the QAFLW Reserves Round 12 match-up between Southport and Aspley, at Graham Road on Saturday, the Sharks were victorious by 9 points.

The game came down to the wire, but again they hung on to win 4.6.(30) to 3.3.(21)

Southport Coach Mal Smith said, “it was a really tough game but did so well to be able to push through and win.”

The game started late due to the injury in the senior game.

Smith said, “I’m really proud of them. It was a late night in Brisbane, but the girls just stuck together to get the four points.”

It took a quarter for the Sharks to get into the game after Aspley got off to a fast start.

In the second quarter, the Sharks hit the front, kicking three goals to one for the quarter to lead by 2 points at half time.

In the third quarter, Southport was able to kick another goal to give them a seven-point buffer at three quarter time.

The Sharks were able to hold in the last quarter as neither team was able to score.

Zali Cheffers was the Sharks’ best for her midfield performance. It is not where she usually plays but she did a fantastic job helping the Sharks transition from defence forward.

Lily Munro was also excellent in the midfield, and Taylor Gregory finished with two goals.

This week Southport play Bond University away from home at 10:15 am in the catch up Round 8 game.
