Women excel in AFL opening night

ROUND one of the inaugural Gladstone AFL recreactional competition kicked off this week, and mixed teams turned out in force to get a taste of non-contact AFL.

The first round of games were held on Tuesday night at the touch fields and were a big success.

Nine teams registered to participate in the new competition.

While people were still getting used to the game rules, the standard was quite high.

AFL Queensland Capricornia development officer Stuart Seager, who was approached about starting the local competition, said it was the female participants who shone on the opening night and were very impressive.

Chelsea Smith, from the Stingers kicked four goals while Megan Atto dominated for the Gators in her first game of AFL of any form.
