HTL Spreading Awakeri Lightning v Ohope Eagles

Lightning won a free breakfast through Radio 1XX. Host Liz Thomas arranged some yummy food and lots of interesting information about breakfasts for the all girls team to think about. Olivia and Tayla line up for their breakfasts.
Olympian Karen Hanlen came along to talk to the team about the importance of breakfast to athletes. Her little boy Caleb was ready to go to his football game too. He plays for Awakeri Tigers. Lilly enjoys her breakfast.
Now it's on to the game. Player of the day Brodie Nathan was a strong competitor. Ella Jones shows some good skills.
Katie Growden was excellent at the back. The cross country champion shows her speed running the ball out. Lightning let in an early goal, but came very close to scoring. Here they are pinning Ohope back in front of their own goal.
