The Singleton Roosterettes made history last month.
Hosting the inaugural Bush to Beach women’s pre-season tournament, the AFL Hunter Central Coast Black Diamond Cup side went through undefeated with wins over the Muswellbrook Cats, Maitland Saints and Warners Bay.
Despite the shortened format, the Roosterettes kept both opening opponents scoreless while registering scores of 8.7 (55) and 3.7 (25).
They then defeated the Bulldogs 0.2 (2) to 0.1 (1) in the final.
“It was a fantastic day for all of the clubs involved and we’re already looking at having a two-day tournament next season,” Singleton women’s coach Nadene McBride explained.
MEANWHILE the Singleton Roosterettes, who were without Liz Moule, Lynan Scott, Torryn Upward, Hannah Cox, Tayla Maloney and Kustiani Tuckerman, suffered a 9.5 (59) to 2.6 (18) defeat to Terrigal Avoca on Saturday.
They will now travel to play Lake Macquarie in Round 2 on Saturday, April 15 while the Muswellbrook Cats will travel to The Entrance Bateau Bay for their first game since 2021.
