Portland girls start footy season on Sunday
THE 2019 Deakin University Female Football League’s under-18 home and away season begins this weekend with five matches up taking place across the south west region.
Portland’s eager young Tigers are off to Melville Oval to face Hamilton Kangaroos on Sunday.
The under-18 side will be coached by Tia Haines.
19-year-old Haines has been with the Tigers since the inaugural year of the competition in 2017 and was the league’s best and fairest award winner in the same season.
“We’re looking good,” Haines said on Wednesday night.
“We’re going to be working on some game simulation stuff (in the lead up to the game) and start taking things up a notch.”
