Tigers battle Cats and mud

Kyneton's Sophie Fontaine breaks away from Macedon's Lulu Slater.

With wet and muddy conditions, the unbeaten Kyneton women’s team was not taking anything for granted against Macedon on Saturday evening.

Slow to start, the Tigers could not get their renowned fast running pace and uncontested play going in the first half.

A score of 0.5 to the Cats’ 0.1 at half-time triggered the coach putting his team on notice.

A big rev up worked wonders with the composed Tigers kicking four goals in the third term and going on to a 5.6 (36 victory).

Kyneton’s appearance in the women’s finals in a couple of weeks will be the first-ever appearance at this level since the side’s establishment in 2014.

Goals came from Williams 2, Harrison, Erasmus and Moore.

Best – Ainslie, Hateley, Strawhorn, Williams, Erasmus, Fontaine.

Macedon is also guaranteed a finals appearance, being fourth on the ladder after second and third teams Melton and Woodend-Hesket played a 0.2 to 0.2 tie in very windy conditions.

The Tigers are incredibly excited to be hosting their first ever Indigenous Match on home soil this coming weekend.

They take on Romsey for the final women’s round, with proceedings from 5pm.
