Women unable to break through at inaugural tournament

CENTRAL Zone had a tough time at the inaugural South Australian Women’s Country Zone Football Championships in Renmark this past weekend, finishing without a victory.
Central Zone, which was filled to the brim with BLGW players, ran head-first into a rampaging Eastern outfit in game one, losing by 16 points.
Tanunda’s Sophie Watson kicked the team’s solitary goal, while Gawler Central’s Lauren Smith was best afield.
Unfortunately, the Central Zone girls again struggled in game two, succumbing to South East by 18 points.
Willaston’s Sarah-Jane Jameson was the side’s sole goal-kicker in the first half, while Angaston’s Kate Harris was best afield.
In game three, Central Zone was unable to capitalise on a wasteful Northern, going down by two goals.
Tanunda’s Nicola Biagi tried to make things happen for her team, kicking the only goal and earning the best-on-ground honours.
Harris, Kapunda’s Ella Mickan and Gawler Central’s Bonnie Holdsworth were all named as the remaining best players.
Central Zone rounded out the tournament with its best opportunity at a win, but fell short by one point to Southern Districts.
Holdsworth kicked the sole major for Central, while Mickan, Tanunda’s Katja Boese, Barossa District’s Georgia Madigan and Angaston played Emma Keys rounded out the best players.
