Junior Girls Football

Our Junior Girls Footballers were one of our most excited teams we’ve taken out and were extremely enthusiastic in their divisional tournament.

Whittlesea easily defeated new competition Mernda Central, as well as a big win against The Lake and Mill Park. We made the final, and a very strong Hazel Glen team awaited us. After a colossal first half and a physical match, we went down by five goals.

A fantastic effort by our girls. Our best player on the day was Jade Ventura.
