Red Lions

24 August 2018

Thursday afternoon saw Glennie host Harristown in the semi-finals of the U18 Red Lions Cup. A mighty task lay ahead for our decimated squad, as Harristown looked at full strength. Injury and illness couldn’t hold us back from throwing everything we had at Harristown.

Conceding an early goal didn’t dampen our spirits, instead, the girls lifted to a new level, scoring an equaliser off a blinding run by Shona Davidson.

The final score was 2-1, the second also scored by Shona, but all would agree it was an outstanding team effort and a well-deserved victory.

The grand finals will be held later in the term against St Ursula’s College.
