Lady Bombers Fall Despite Gallant Effort

July 26, 2008 Milwaukee, WI 

The Atlanta Lady Kookaburras traveled north to Milwaukee this past weekend to take on the Lady Bombers and came away with yet another emphatic win. The Lady Kookas remain undefeated into their 4th year having played 17 games successfully. An absolutely perfect day greeted all players at Kletzsch Park with a slight breeze drifting across the field.

The first quarter continued to be a battle of the backlines with the Kookas standing tall with Katie Grist, Christina Murdock and Kris Kubicek all doing well. After Diana Pizzari came off with a bloodied nose, Sue Marsh broke free after some great work through the midfield from Sarbacker and slotted through her second for the term. Milwaukee replied late in the term with a goal to Suzy Thomas so at the first break it was Atlanta 2.1.13 Milwaukee 1.0.6

Freedom on-the-baller Nicole Martiny left mid-first quarter with a hip injury and did not return. Forward Suzy Thomas took a boot to the face resulting in a broken nose but was able to play on. Bombers saw first games from multiple players, highlighted by a great effort from Katie Krauss, who spent the majority of the game tagging Jen Sarbacker.

The final margin of 95 points a fair indication the Lady Kookas had a great day and well on the way to another great season. The Milwaukee Lady Bombers battled hard all day and although undermanned they were gallant in defeat.
