THE Veolia Limestone Coast Women’s Football League continued with Round 2 on Sunday, with strong results across the board from the victors.

Games were played at Kongorong and Blue Lake Sports Park, with plenty of goals kicked and skills on display to keep the crowd entertained.

Penola claimed a win over its northern counterpart Mundulla at BLSP in the early game.

The victors were never really troubled, but could not break away to record a huge score.

Instead Mundulla continued to apply pressure throughout the match to keep the Eagles honest.

Penola kicked 3.5-23 in the opening term to put their opponents on notice, then backed it up with another major in the second.

However, Mundulla found two straight goals in the second term to remain in contention.

Penola added another major score in the third term but Mundulla had to wait until the final stanza to find its third six-pointer.

In the end Penola ran out comfortable victors 6.12-48 to 3.1-19.

Angel Broad kicked two goals for the victors, while Caroline McGrath, Alexandria Ey , Broad, Sally Skeer, Paris Ackland and Ellise Berkin were named best.

Mundulla’s goals were equally shared, with Lauren Tink, Melody Maddern, Zoe Hawker, Kellsey Hinge and Tegan Roberts named best.

The late game at BLSP saw hosts South Gambier make short work of the Kybybolite challenge.

From the outset the Demons were on their game, with two first-quarter goals while keeping Kyby scoreless.

The goals continued to flow for the home side in the second term, while the visitors managed to find three minor scores.

Three further majors to South in the third term, while again keeping Kyby scoreless, put the game beyond doubt and the Demons ran out winners 8.12-60 to 0.7-7.

Neave Delaney and Simone Macdonald kicked two goals each for South, while Chelsea Frost, Alice Tentye, Emma Macdonald, Kaylene Nuske and Shelby Auld were named best.

For Kyby, Tyler Atkinson, Susannah Maber, Lucy Kramm, Anna Hawkins, Lily Gill and Molly Davidson were named best.

Over at Kongorong, Kalangadoo and Millicent went head-to-head in the opening clash and it was the Magpies who did all the scoring.

The Saints were unable to bother the scorers at all but applied plenty of pressure which forced Kalangadoo to work hard for its rewards.

The Magpies kicked two goals in the opening term, a goal and two behinds in the second and then were kept to just one behind in the third.

They finished the game with two majors and six minor scores in the final stanza to run out 5.10-40 to zero winners.

Brianna Devine and Emmason Ilsley kicked two goals each, while Chloe Pratt, Jamie Ryan, Tara Jeffree, Madalyn Bonanno, Ilsley and Mikaila Pitt were named best.

Best for Millicent were Stephanie Gilbert, Kelsie Wilkinson, Ella Little, Chloe Gronn, Crystal Golding and Carly Knaggs.

In the final game the hosts succumbed to the North Gambier pressure, with the visitors claiming a comfortable victory.

The Tigers held Kongorong scoreless in the opening term, while banging on two major scores to go 14 points clear.

Kongorong bounced back in the second with a score of 1.2-8 while North did not add to its total but the game began to slip away from the hosts in the third term.

North only added a further two majors, but with no score recorded, Kongorong slipped 20 points behind, with a huge fourth quarter needed.

However, just one major score was added by each side from there and the Tigers claimed the win 5.4-34 to 2.4-16.

All goals for both sides came from single efforts, while best for the victors were Chloe Perryman, Piper Killick, Carly Ploenges, Sarah Thomson, Makala Cookson and Taylah O’Connor.

Best for Kongorong were Evie Sealey, Julie Brown, Marnee Formosa, Sarah Lucas, Lexie Kermond and Hannah Kuhl-Miller.

A split round coming up sees games Friday night at Kybybolite, with a return to Blue Lake Sports Park on Sunday.
