Swans win on slippery court

By Seymour Telegraph

Avenel has shown its versatility, changing things up on court to defeat Violet Town.

The Swans tried out some different combinations which proved to pay off.

Young Swan Mackenzie Garner put in a best-on-court performance in her role in defence, intercepting and blocking the Violet Town girls out of the play.

Avenel playing-coach Kelly Smith was thrilled with the 60-18 win.

‘‘The changes that we made worked so that was good for our confidence,’’ Smith said.

It was a chilly old day in Violet Town, with the girls feeling the full effects of the Victorian winter.

‘‘We were lucky it didn’t rain but the court was wet at the start of the game,’’ Smith said.

‘‘Both sides just adapted to the slippery conditions and we all found our feet eventually.’’

The round 10 win now has the Swans sitting on seven wins and three losses.

Their next task will be against the newly incorporated Dookie side.

‘‘They’re unknown to us and looking at the scoring margins they’re similar to us so it will be a tough contest, but we’re looking to do the best we can,’’ Smith said.

Dookie will also be on a high after snagging a win against Girgarre at the weekend.

Avenel’s next match will take place at 2.15pm at Dookie Recreation Reserve.
