Grammar Girls win AFL Football Herald Sun Shield Semi-Final

Ballarat Grammar’s First XVIII girls team made their way into the Herald Sun Shield division one grand final in blistering fashion with a 8.13 (61) – 0.0 (0) win over Aquinas College.

The resounding 61-point victory books Grammar’s ticket to the MCG this Sunday as it prepares to take on Melbourne Girls Grammar.

Coach Matt Hanlon was extremely proud of the girls’ performance at RAMS Arena. “In blustery conditions, Grammar kicked into the ferocious breeze in the opening term and booted 3.2 to no score …that just broke the game open for us. It was really comforting to start that way, then we just built on that”.

Sunday’s match against Melbourne Girls Grammar will be a curtain-raiser to the Collingwood and Adelaide match on Sunday. The first bounce will be at 12.45pm.
