Redbacks topple Darley to secure second win

Sherriden Byrne thunders through a pack of Darley players during the Carisbrook Lady Redbacksʼ clash on Sunday.

The senior Lady Redbacks were the only side to come out of round seven with a win, defeating Darley at home on Sunday.

After a tough start to the season, the Redbacks were determined to utilise an opportunity for a win.

Brook hit the board seven times in the first term, with three goals and four minor scores resulting while keeping the Devils completely scoreless.

Continued momentum in the second saw six attempts at goal with two resulting and Darley managed its first score to sit behind 5.8 (38) to 1 (6) at halftime.

The Redbacks had plenty of the footy in the third term, but inaccuracy plagued their forward line with five points to one goal resulting.

The Devils wasted their only opportunity to goal for the final half with one behind.

The final quarter saw one goal to another three points for the home side who claimed a 7.16 (58) to 1.1 (7) win.

Practice in front of goals is certainly a priority for the Redbacks ahead of some tough games where they won’t get so many second chances.

Sophie McQuienn was the side’s leading goal kicker, with two in a best on ground performance.
