Goal - Tamila Iluffi
Match Report by Team Manager Greg Ziegler
The GGG's headed into the game as the ultimate underdogs taking on the league leaders who had not lost a game all year.
The match started off with the GGG's controlling the game and within the first 5 minutes the ball was in the back of the Spring Hill net only for the GGG goal to be disallowed in what can only be called dubious offside call.
The GGG's quickly regrouped and 5 minutes later in a carbon copy move, Tamila Iluffi took on the Spring Hills defence and scored a great goal for the GGG's! 1:0 up and playing strong, the GGG's continued to press for the rest of the half with the midfield and defence not only repelling any attack but also setting up opportunities for the forwards.
After half time, the game turned into an arm wrestle of the midfields with torrential rain falling and both sides fighting for the ball. Our hearts were in our mouths when Chelsea Camilleri pulled off an amazing same in the lat 10 minutes and the final whistle could not come quick enough!!
In the end, it was a massive team effort and congratulations to all of you girls!!!!!
This amazing team of girls only came together as a team at the start of this year and they have already achieved so much. Next week, the GGG's get to play for the right to be crowned the Metro A Grade Champions and we cannot wait!!!!
Thank you to the Club, our parents and supporters and the team for the amazing journey so far. Let' now go forward and enjoy the grand final next week!!
You have earned the right to be there girls, now give it your best!!!
