Waubra finished on high note but no finals

AFTER a fairly tough season Waubra has finished 2015 with a two-goal win against Gordon.

First season Coach Hannah Baker said it was a nice way to finish.

“It was a great game today, a good way to finish. We are proud of ourselves for sticking it out and not giving up,” she said.

“That’s something we have tried to do all season – when we get down is not to give up and try to get back in front, so we just changed the way we were playing and it worked.

Waubra had all four defenders missing from Saturday’s game but it didn’t hamper their performance. “We had players from our Under 17s, from C Grade and B Grade – and without them we would have been in trouble,” Baker said, conceding it has been an up and down season for her team.

“We have knocked off and done well against some of the top sides and then lost to some of the bottom sides. “We are a really inexperienced team, so we are still not sure what we can do each week and it’s been a bit of hit and miss for us each week.”

A stand out player for Waubra in Saturday’s match was their goal shooter, Suzanne O’Brien, who filled in from her usual place in B Grade.

“Suzanne did a fantastic job. She played the year before for us and is just working her way back from injuries – she is strong and quick on rebounds – so we were lucky to have her today,” Baker said.

“We’ve enjoyed our season. We have had a great bunch of girls and the bottom line may not show it but it has been a pretty successful season for us, we’ve enjoyed it, loved coming every week, the girls have loved playing so hopefully we’ll come back next season and do one better.”
