Angels/Swans Down Blues in Nation's Capital
It's been a long dry spell for footy in Ottawa, six years in fact since Aussie Rules kicked off in the nation's capital, each of those seasons without any post-season activity. But it seems it's finally time to let the f word out of the bag: finals.
The Angel/Swans combined team registered another victory this past weekend as the squad easily accounted for the Toronto Central Lady Blues in the nation's capital. A big four goals to nil first half from the Montreal/Ottawa squad set up the victory, the team heading in to halftime with a commanding 26 point lead. The Lady Blues would rally in the second half restricting the home team to just one goal, but the deficit would prove too large, the Angel/Swans running away comfortable victors and keeping the Lady Blues goalless, 5.8 (38) to 0.4 (4). Angel Lindsay Belzie was superb up front with three goals for the victors.
The victory now sees the Angel/Swans outright second on the league table with a 5-1 record. The Angel/Swans have a tough final three matches to the season starting with the third placed Etobicoke Lady Roos next weekend in Ottawa. At 4-1 the Lady Roos have only tasted defeat once this year themselves losing to the undefeated High Park Demons by 39 points in Round 1.
