Shepparton Youth Club's Zaidee's round was a success for the club off the field, but it was Mooroopna which took the victory on the field in Goulburn Valley Hockey Association.GEORGINA CAHILL August 6, 2014 3:10am
Zaidee’s Rainbow shone through the grey sky above McEwen Reserve on Saturday.
Shepparton Youth Club celebrated Zaidee’s round and donned colourful socks and shoelaces in their Goulburn Valley Hockey Association women’s A-grade clash against Mooroopna.
The club raised more than $1000 for the foundation, a legacy of Zaidee Turner.
Turner died from a burst blood vessel in her brain in 2004 and was the only child in Victoria under the age of 16 to donate her organs and tissues that year.
While SYC didn’t get the result it was after on the field, Zaidee’s message rang loudly off the field.
Mooroopna scored one opening-half goal and two second-half goals to come away with the win.
Mooroopna co-captain Ellie Winzer said after a messy start to the season, her side found its pace in the clash.
‘‘Our season only really started a week ago,’’ Winzer said.
‘‘With the messy start to our season, we were hoping to redo what we did the week before.’’
With the final score reading 3-1, the Cats certainly found their pace.
Winzer scored the opening goal, while Narelle Robertson and Lyn Berry scored goals in the second half.
Winzer was pleased her side had found its strengths and said it was able to maintain possession of the ball.
‘‘We always use our width very well to keep it wide instead of going through the centre,’’ she said.
Goalkeeper Annie Cauchi was superb for the Cats.
Mardi Petherick and Linda Cardamone were big contributors in the win.
Tina Kerr was SYC’s lone goal-scorer, while Tarnya Bruinier, Pauline Doonan and Laura Willmot fought hard for their side.
