A multi-sport athlete growing up, Kendra Heil had no idea there was one missing piece to her athletic puzzle.

The Simcoe native found it this summer — Australian rules football.

“I think I fell in love with it because it’s a combination of every sport that I’ve ever played — basketball, volleyball, soccer, rugby,” said Heil. “It has something from everything and that made it very challenging but at the same time very pleasant because I got to use all my skills from previous sports.”

In the 4th quarter, the Freedom were trailing by one point.  Bri Thiesen's shot on goal was a bit short but marked by another Freedom player.  Her set shot missed everything.  Canada finished the scoring with 5 more behinds to win the Development game by a goal.
