Mueck kicks seven goals in Thunder’s big win

KEY forward Britney Mueck kicked seven goals in another superb display in Bendigo Thunder’s attack in Sunday’s third round of the Champions IGA-backed CVFL senior women’s football competition.

The in-form Thunder dominated play on North Bendigo’s turf at Hibo Hotel Oval in Atkins Street.

Thunder led 37-2 at quarter-time and 78-2 by the long break.

The play of Jessica Kennedy, Hannah Perry, Britney Mueck and Jacqui Graham set up or finished off many moves as Thunder scored 12.5 to a point in the final hour.

A tally of 24 goals for Thunder was led by Mueck, seven; Georgia Gordon, four; Jessica Kennedy, three; Shae-Lee Murphy-Burke and Jacqui Graham, two.

Mueck has kicked 22 goals in three matches.

Best for Thunder included Murphy-Burke and Gordon.

North Bendigo’s best were Quetta Holloway-Jinks, Ashlyne McInnes, Cherelle Byrne, Kayla-Brea McIntosh, Teagan Stuchbery and Sophie Perkins.

Castlemaine blitzed Kerang at Riverside Park.

The Magpies scored 26.11 (167) to nil.

Best for Castlemaine were Tia Davidge, Shelby Knoll, Meg Ginnivan, Jemma Finning, Bridie Semmens and Michelle Barkla.

Kendall Ash, Sarah Ride, Jessica Searle, Casy Unger and K. Hogan worked hard for the Blues against the league newcomer which has a 2-0 record.

Kyneton marked one of its biggest wins in its CVFL stint as the Tigers dominated play on Strathfieldsaye Storm’s turf at Triple M Park in Tannery Lane.

The Phil Hawkes-coached Tigers had plenty of contributors in a 117-3 victory.

Best for the Tigers were A. Campbell, Ursula Van Dyk, Teagan Ainslie, Sophie Van Leest, Belinda Hateley and Peta Turnbull.

A list of Storm’s best was not supplied.

Storm was far from full-strength through injury and unavailability, but the Tigers showed they had learnt a lot from their previous hit-out at Castlemaine.

The yellow and black endured a long wait from the April 9 game played at Camp Reserve as Kerang forfeited what was to have been a Good Friday match on Kyneton’s turf.

Eaglehawk and Golden Square had the bye.

Champions IGA-backed CVFL senior women’s footy ladder:

Bendigo Thunder 13500 per cent, 12 points; Eaglehawk 3700, 12; Castlemaine 1537, 8; Golden Square 17500, 4; Kyneton 20, 4; Strathfieldsyae 2.7, 0; North Bendigo 0.8, 0; Kerang 0, 0.

Round four kicks off under the Canterbury Park lights next Friday when Eaglehawk takes on Golden Square from 6.30pm.

It’s a twilight game on Saturday when Castlemaine and Strathfieldsaye play from 5.15pm at the Magpies’ home in Camp Reserve.

The round will be completed from 2.30pm on Sunday when Kyneton hosts North Bendigo at Tigerland in Kyneton Showgrounds.

Bendigo Thunder and Kerang have the bye.
