Maffra claims the round

THE only game of Round 12 that Leongatha and Maffra ended up playing was a win for Maffra.
Efforts by AFL Gippsland to reschedule the fixture by rearranging the split round at the end of the month failed and left the clubs’ Girls’ teams solely in charge of recording a win.
Leongatha lost the match by 17 points and the round 1-0 in a see-sawing match on Sunday.
With Ashlie Gilliam and Alice Howard driving much of the early attack from the middle and with Keely Price circling the forward line waiting for an opportunity to kick a major, the girls looked a potent force.
Seanan Trewin was at her dashing best while Hayley Geary laid one of the tackles of the year. Against the flow, however, Maffra was able to kick the first goal of the game.
The second quarter was more promising for the Parrots with Zoe Michael slotting two goals in quick succession.
Kyla Green was brilliant around the middle while Stacey Gilliam was showing her superiority in the aerial contests.
The third quarter saw Maffra hit back with an early goal, stretching its lead to four points.
Jemma Sherriff, speedy across the ground, lifted the Parrots’ intensity.
In the last quarter Maffra was able to sneak two more goals to stretch its lead out to 17 points. Although the Parrots kept threatening, they were unable to convert.
