Despite being in the middle of the off-season, Drysdale’s Geelong Regional League winning women’s side were hard at work recently, representing the Geelong region in the inaugural Victorian Country Challenge Cup at Stead Park.
The girls took on league winners from other regions from around Victoria and came out winning a thrilling final 4-2 against a strong Bendigo representative side.
Drysdale started the weekend off slowly, on Saturday, drawing 1-1 with Leongatha after conceding in the last few minutes in a game Drysdale had dominated. The second match saw Bendigo race out to a 4-0 lead at half-time with Shannon Daffy scoring a late penalty to make it 4-1 loss.
That meant Drysdale SC needed to win against Traralgon to make it through to the final – which it did. Serena Clapp and Rhiannon Glenister scoring a goal each in a hard fought 2-0 win with both goals coming in the last five minutes. The final was a topsy-turvey, high quality encounter which saw Bendigo twice take the lead with fine goals only for Drysdale to run over the top of them late in the game, winning the tournament with a 4-2 win, with star striker Serena Clapp scoring a hat-trick and Emma Blanch also getting on the score sheet. A fantastic effort for the girls who also went through the league undeafted in a fantastic year for the club.
Pre-season training is not that far away, with senior teams getting under way in December. Visit the club webpage for all the latest news and updates drysdalesc.com
