Healesville Senior Women 5-0 Maroondah United

It was a late chilly game for the Senior Women on Saturday, but they warmed up pretty quickly to a dominate over Maroondah in a 5-0 win.

With injuries and absences from many key players, the team knew they’d have to bring a strong game, but the mighty reds had nothing to fear, with amazing performances from young players Olive (Betty), Eloise and Isla in their senior debuts.

The defence line stayed strong with very few runs getting through from the opposition, and Healesville secured a 1-0 lead by half time with a cracking goal from Eloise.

With fantastic guidance from Coach Steve, the whole team played cohesively and calm under pressure, with skilled passes and formations.

Belle was unstoppable with a strong start to the second half, dancing around the defence to smash two goals into the back of the net in quick succession.

A beautiful corner ball from Sarah flew past the defenders, neatly lobbed in from the back post by Rachel putting Healesville at 4-0.

The win was secured by a skilled touch and stunning final goal from Olive (Betty), keeping Healesville safely at the top of the ladder.
