Warragul Colts players Louie Patten and Tegan Rosin attempt to spoil Bunyip’s Jessie Ablett.

Sunday saw the Warragul Colts travel up the highway to play newly formed women's team Bunyip in the Development League of the South-East Women's.

Warragul have been dominating the league so far this year, and this game was going to be a test for the girls against Bunyip who were sitting seventh on the ladder.

The game started with free-flowing football, long kicks and good marking.  Bunyip’s defence worked overtime to ensure that Colts had to work hard for shots at goal. In fact, the first goal was not kicked until the eight-minute mark of the first quarter by Louie Patten.

The Colts were quick out of the centre after the centre bounce to get their second goal but for the next 12 minutes they could only manage two points.

In the second quarter, Colts dominated with the ball in their forward line for the most part.  Bunyip’s defence was too good, with the Colts scoring a solitary goal.

The Colts had the stamina, booting three more goals in the third term.

Pressure was mounting in the final term with some players more determined than others resulting in some minor scuffles.  It was all the Colts, kicking a further five goals.

Final score - Bunyip 0-2 (2) defeated by Warragul Colts 11-9 (75).
