CT Crows U15 and U18 teams are the first ever winners of the LEP Youth Girls Football Competition
The CT Crows won both the 2018 Under 15 and Under 18 Grand Finals on Friday night played at Centenary Oval in the inaugural Lower Eyre Peninsula Youth Girls Football Competition. The season has been played over the last 5 weeks, with a 9-a-side format, involving three teams in each division with the Kangaroos and Bulldogs consisting of players from Port Lincoln and the CT Crows consisting of players from Cummins, Tumby Bay and Kimba.
In the Under 15 Girls the CT Crows exploded out the blocks with Cain kicking 3 goals for the quarter to put the CT Crows in a commanding position at half time by 4 goals. Enge kicked a goal for the Bulldogs in the second half, while Fatchen for the CT Crows kicked 3 goals for the game and Murnane 2. The CT Crows were presented the Champion Shield winning by 43 points. Mardi Masson for the CT Crows was awarded best on ground for the final by the umpires.
In the Under 18 Girls this game was much closer with Schlink kicking 2 goals for the CT Crows and Kerley 1 for the Kangaroos which allowed the CT Crows a 7 point lead at half time. The Kangaroos goaled early in second quarter through Trezona which tightened the score, however the game was opened up by the attack on the ball by Anesbury, Gerber and Clements which resulted in Webb 2 and Solly 1 kicking goals for the CT Crows. The CT Crows were presented the Champion Shield winning by 20 points. Julie Gerber for the CT Crows was awarded best on ground for the final by the umpires.
