Tudor Wests coach Helen Wills commended the way her side kept fighting as they clawed back a two goal deficit to snag a share of the points with Services on Sunday.
Down 2-nil at half-time, Tudors responded with two unanswered goals to notch their fourth draw for the season.
“They didn’t drop their heads. They kept fighting for it and got the two goals back,” Willis said.
Their first goal eventuated from a deflection off a hard hit into the circle, Lauren McGill, who usually plays as a defender in second grade but was having a run as striker, getting the final touch for her first first grade goal.
That was pleasing for Willis. They’ve been working hard on their deflections at training.
Dakotah Barnett-Suey scored the equaliser, taking on the defence and launching a tomahawk into the top right hand corner.
“It was good to see them taking the shot,” Willis said.
They have in recent times lacked the confidence to have the shot.
She said Barnett-Suey in the centre-mid role controlled the game well and seems to have the balance worked out well between attacking and distributing.
Willis noted that their defence was also “really quite solid”.
