13/2 – Ocean Grove 22 def Modewarre 8

It was a strong win for the U13/2s this week as they faced up against Modda, who are sitting quite a few ranks below them on the ladder. The girls played a great attacking and defensive game, keeping the ball out of Modewarre’s hands and instead putting through their own goal ring.
