The Murray Felines assignment on the weekend was against the Wodonga Raiders at Emerald Park, Wodonga.
Unlike the last time the two teams met when it teemed with rain, the weather was perfect.
The football matched with the weather with a fast, open game where both teams were able to display their skills.
The Wodonga Raiders have a number of seasoned campaigners with great skills who were always dangerous around the packs.
Consequently, the defensive skills of the Felines were always being tested.
The whole team handled the pressure well, with the tackling a stand out feature for the match.
The Felines were able to defend solidly and then rebound many times.
Annie Marquison played very well at full back against a much bigger and older opponent.
Emily Nicholson provided one of the highlights of the day with a text book tackle to chase and bring down a Wodonga Raiders player who was streaming down the wing.
Amber Ferraro played as an impact player and provided great run of the half back flank to continually move the ball forward for the team.
Sydnie O’Toole and Jesse Johnson both played well in the centre and continually put themselves into the contest.
Sydnie O’Toole and Emily Nicholson came on fire in the last quarter, stopping the dangerous Raiders midfield players and dominating the possession out of the stoppages.
The coach Ian Rogers was very pleased at the end of the game with the improvement and endeavour shown by the team and every individual player.
Training this week is at Rutherglen at 5.30pm and next Sunday, the Felines take on the Lavington Panthers at Whorouly.
