Phillip Island youth girls get a Dalyston welcome

THE Dalyston girls were too experienced for the new team coming out convincing winners 13.8 to 1.0.
A five goal to nothing first quarter saw Dalyston take control of the game from the start.
An early goal by Phillip Island in the second quarter gave the large home crowd hope of a come back before Dalyston kicked two consecutive goals to lead 7.7- 1.0 at half time. In the second half Dalyston continued to score freely while holding Phillip Island scoreless.
Dalyston’s Ella O’Flynn provided a strong target at half forward kicking five goals while half backs Daisy Filippi and Jade MacDermid cut off many of Phillip Islands forward attacks. Dalyston’s midfield of Ally Kershaw, Dayle Egan and Rose Combs were too experienced for the new team.
Phillip Island had some nice passages of play and will be better next week knowing what to expect. Phillip Islands Keisha Muller-Togo, Julia Redmond and Rani Beaumont looked very comfortable and will be players to watch as the season goes on.
Dalyston goals: Ella O’Flynn 5, Ella Cargill 3, Ally Kershaw 2 and one each to Megan Hocking, Jade MacDermid and Dayle Egan.
Dalyston best: Ella O’Flynn, Dayle Egan, Daisy Filippi, Karlee Smith and Jade MacDermid.
Phillip Island goals: Isabel Rooks and best Helen Silver, Julia Redmond, Cailin Robinson, Rani Beaumont and Charli Ross.

On the ball: Rose Coombs breaks free of a tackle as Dalyston welcomed Phillip Island’s Youth Girls’ Team into the fold.
