On Sunday 16th August, the Under 15 Team 3 competed at the Traralgon Tournament. The girls travelled down to Traralgon the day before and took on a Ropes Course Challenge, which they successfully completed. After a BBQ dinner, followed by popcorn and a movie, the girls had an early night ready for the next day. Although it was quiet chilly in the morning, it turned into a beautiful day for the most part, with some strong wind around lunchtime that spelt the end for one of our Prahran tents!
The girls started the first game of the day against Leongatha with a close 1-goal win, although we suffered a knee injury near the end of the game. They then came up against the home team Traralgon and after a close battle, including a grazed knee, the girls finished with a two-goal loss. Next up was Diamond Creek 3 and another close game ensured. Trailing with only minutes to go, Prahran scored a couple of quick goals to come away with a draw. The girls then came up against Pakenham, where they came away with a very convincing win, and an ankle injury. The last game before the bye was against the top team Sale. After a quick start by Sale, the Prahran team fought back in the second half but it just was not enough.
The girls then had a break for lunch (which is when our tent flew away) followed by their last game of the day against Diamond Creek Orange. It was another tough game and with some sore and tired players, they gave it their all. In the end, the girls finished fifth on the ladder and just missed finals. It was such a great effort by the girls and the best tournament result for the Under 15 team 3 this year. Congratulations!
