The Carisbrook Lady Redbacks will play their first home games of the season in a triple header this weekend after two tough rounds of football.
All three Redbacks sides went down in their respective games at the weekend and will look to turn it on in front of a home crowd this Sunday.
The senior side headed to Arnold’s Creek Recreation Reserve on Sunday to face the Melton Centrals.
The clash was plagued with injuries and with three ambulances called to the reserve during play, the match was abandoned at three quarter time.
After posting no score at all in round one, Carisbrook hit the scoreboard for the first time this season, adding just three behinds to its tally.
This paled in comparison to Melton’s end score of 12.10 (82), but provides a glimmer of hope for the side heading into the remainder of the season.
In the best for Carisbrook were Chonney Meemusour, Sophie McQuienn, Quetta Holloway-Jinks, Bridget Epworth and Sahmara Freeman.
The Redbacks’ under 18s went down by just seven points to the league’s newest side, Lexton.
The Redbacks took the lead in the first quarter, kicking two majors to the Tigers’ 1.1.
