Junior girls play at Downer Oval

Saturday, May 18 was a date of many firsts for the Williamstown Football Club.

It was the first VFLW game of 2019, the first VFLW home game under lights and the first time Williamstown Junior Youth Girls played as a curtain raiser to the VFLW. 

The first game of the afternoon was an Under 12s clash between Williamstown juniors and Flemington juniors/West Footscray. Williamstown took the lead early on in the first quarter and proceeded to extend the lead throughout the afternoon, leaving their opponents scoreless.

After the final siren sounded Williamstown won the game 10.7 (67) to 0.0 (0) and kept their unbeaten top of the ladder record in tact.

The twilight game of the afternoon was an Under 15s Division 1 clash between two of Hobson’s Bay’s finest junior girls teams. Williamstown Juniors hosted Spotswood in the newly formed Division 1 after five rounds of grading.

The game was a really tight contest and never got above a goal the difference. With a second half held under lights at Downer Oval it was Spotswood JFC 2.5 (17) defeating Williamstown Juniors 2.0 (12).

Following on from this we saw a former Williamstown Juniors product in Ruby Tripodi make her debut for the Williamstown VFLW side, proving the talent pathway from local junior to the elite level.

After seeing many VFL players coming from the Williamstown juniors pathway, Ruby became the first ever woman to debut at VFLW level.

Williamstown Juniors has two junior girls sides in the Under 12s and Under 15s competing in the WRFL junior competitions and we look to continue the great relationship between our two clubs and all of the junior football clubs throughout Hobson’s Bay.
