Our girls team continue to go from strength to strength with some great results and wonderful football played on what was a wonderful sunny Sunday.
The U9’s had a great result with a 6-2 win against Brighton – superb team effort by coach Marty and all the girls.
U10’s lost 2-0 with Coach Al saying the girls played well and he’s extremely proud on how they continue to progress.
U12’s Had a big win with a 13-0 against local rivals Aspendale to keep themselves top of the table. A big thanks to Lucy Gwilym’s Dad Rich, for stepping in to coach the girls as the game clashed with Lucy and Ambers senior games.
U14’s drew 2-2 with Glen Waverley –A tightly fought game with Beauy starting well, taking the lead only for Glen Waverly to peg the girls back on both occasions making the last 10 minutes extremely tense the game ended 2-2. The girls are still in the top 3 on the ladder and with a number of games left to play they are perfectly positioned to push for the title.
Our U15’s let Pitch 2 at the reserve have a rest allowing the cow paddock cricket wicket to dry out and played some attacking football on Picth1, with 2 goals from Zara and one from Saskia they won 3-0 against Ringwood City, (See team photo attached) with Connie from our u9’s as mascot for the day.
This victory together with last week’s draw with top of the table Mooroolbark puts the girls in a great position for the remainder of the season.
Thanks to Esme & Saskia who played for both the u14’s and u15’s today.
SL2 A 3:15 home kick off saw our SL2 girls face Yarra Jets. The girls welcomed back Kate Chesterton after 5 weeks out with injury. Beauy started strongly and dominated for the first 20mins and deservedly opened the scoring after 4 minutes with a well taken goal, it could have been two with an effort from Jess striking the bar. A fast paced game saw the Jets equalise before the break and the teams went into the rooms all level. The second half started with the same intensity as the first finished, with both teams pressing for a winner, Beauy cleared from a Jets attack only for a hopeful, but well hit high shot that found the back of the net. 2-1 Jets. Both teams continued to push for goals. Sophie went close with10 to hitting a well struck free kick from 35yrs with and Nicky produced some excellent saves to keep Beauy in the game, but unfortunately we couldn’t find an equalizer and the game finished 2-1 to Jets.
SL4 had an away trip to Port Melbourne, with a 1pm kick off. On a very big and heavy pitch the girls started well and could have taken the lead early if not for some great saves by the Port keeper. Holly Adams opened the scoring after 30mins running onto a lovely through ball from Yana to slot home. 1-0 half time. Second half we started a little slow, and Port pulled level after 55mins and continued to push for 2nd but the Beauy back four held firm with Zoe in goal making a couple of great saves. With 20mins to go Yana latched onto a through ball to run clear and slotted home 2-1 Beauy, and with 5 to go she finished in similar fashion to ensure SL4 remain top of the table.

SL5 had an early start with an away game against La Trobe in Bundoora. Lucy Allison opened the scoring with two goals, Mia Causer slotted one home from 30 yards. Bridgette Skadiang and Lucy Allison kept up the scoring in the second half, with a well hit goal from Monika Stankovic to finish them off. The girls finished the game with a 6-0 victory to keep the pressure on ladder leaders Chisholm.
The bubbles capped off a wonderful weekend of Womens football winning 3-2, against high flying Hampton. Living up to their name by playing their usual style of champagne football.
Well done to all the girls, coaches and support staff.
