23/02/2019 AWIHL Adelaide Rush v Melbourne Ice 3-10

Some photos from the AWIHL game between the bottom placed Adelaide Rush and the top placed Melbourne Ice played on the 23/02/2019 at the Ice Arena.  The highly fancied Ice unit were apparently without a few players (resting before the finals) and were using Ruth Brophy as their goalie.   The ice would score the first 2 goals of the game before the Rush struck back with the goal scored by 3rd liner Sarah Wise, unassisted.  It wasn’t long before the Ice resumed their dominance and pulled out an unassailable lead.  The game got quite physical.  The Rush would change goalie Jo Phillis for Jayde Hodge during the 2nd period in an attempt to mix things up.  Rush’s Kirsty Venus would score would score.  Dominant for the Ice would be captain Christina Julian.  Final score Ice 10 v  Rush 3.  The following morning the Rush would show plenty of courage going down 6-3.
