It started out as an overcast morning with a few showers. As the Jillaroos arrived to the field, the Toronto Central Blues men’s team was just wrapping up their 2nd game against the Toronto Eagles.
Today was the inaugural day of the brand new Jills jerseys. As each girl excitedly pulled out her jersey and tried it on, the Lady Central Blues started to come out of the crowd and remark how impressed they were with the Jills’ new jerseys. One girl even said she wanted to move to Columbus just to get her own!
As the Jills started warming up, the clouds dissipated and the sun began to beat down; it quickly became a hot and humid day as the girls took the pitch. The Jills traveled strong and had 6 girls as well as both coaches, two Jacks, and four parents as fans. Toronto also had six girls for the game as several of their players are in Australia for the International Cup. The starting lineup for today as chosen by coach Scott “Scoota” Matheson was Stephanie “Macca” McKitrick at full-back, Erin Voden at half-back, Kristi “Kujo” Baldwin at Ruck, Sarah “Soup” Plummer at rover, Sara “Mouth” Matheson at half-forward and Jamie Dailey at full-forward. The ladies would play four ten-minute quarters since neither team had an interchange and the humidity level was high. One of the Lady Blues even sarcastically remarked that ‘their igloos melted earlier that day’. read more »

After some great training sessions after the previous encounter and a few Div 2 games under the belt, the girls came out all guns blazing. With everyone following the game plan to the letter (most importantly having fun) the Eagles Dees increased the lead in each of the 1st 3 quarters. read more »
The Central Blues women traveled to Guelph to play the opening round of the inaugural women's season. Their opponent was the Toronto Eagles/HighPark Demons combined squad led by ex-Blue Caitlyn Finney. There were the usual pre-game jitters made a little worse by the fact that the girls were playing against a team coached by National Team assistant coach Mark Peterson. The nerves were quickly forgotten at the first ball up and it was game on. read more »
