Jillaroos visit Toronto

Written by ·


The relationship between the Blues and the Jillaroos and Jackaroos from Columbus continues on as the Jillaroos paid a trip up to Toronto.  The Jillaroos have spent the season heavily recruiting players and have been running a non-contact, coed league to get game time in.  The Blues and Jillaroos met earlier on in May for a pre-season match and this latest face off serves as the Jillaroos´final game before US nationals next week.

12 excited and determined Jillaroos arrived in Toronto and suited up for a brisk fall game down at Humber South.  The match started off with the Blues slotting some quick goals and creating a comfortable lead.  The Jillaroos warmed up quickly and came back hard in the second quarter.  They showed a lot more pressure and voice – great work, especially from their first time players.  Half time score was 9.5.59 for the Blues and 0.2.2 for the Jills.  The second half was a closer game and the Blues had to clean up their style of play a bit after some lucky breaks.  After all the hard running and building momentum of the game, it ended all too soon with a win for the Blues.

It was a great match and a great day overall.  Everyone was in high spirits after the game. It is always a pleasure to play against the Jillaroos and we wish them luck at US Nationals.  6 Blues players will be attending US Nationals as well and we hope for many fantastic games that weekend!
