Young African takes Joondalup Youth Girls Best and Fairest!

Friday, September 18, 2015 - 11:47 AM

Scovia Anzoa has had an amazing 2015. Having made her AFL debut in 2013 for the Butler Falcons, an all-girls African AFL Team based in Butler, she went on to captain the side in 2014. This year, she made her debut for the Joondalup Falcons, as part of the transition program set up to encourage girls from multicultural backgrounds into the female AFL pathway. She also became Head Coach of the Butler Young Falcons and made the second round of the WA State Under 16s trials, all at age 13. Recently, Scovia celebrated her 14th birthday and capped off her season with the Joondalup Falcons by being awarded the Fairest and Best Honours, making her the first female South Sudanese female player to take the award at any level in WA.

Fuel for the game

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 - 10:43 AM

As we move into Finals time we thought we'd share some insights on how league footballers prepare, to ensure they have the right fuel for the big game!

Most AFL players prepare their body for the game by getting physiotherapy and massage to ease aches and pains but they also need to eat correctly before the game to ensure they have sufficient energy to get through a full game of AFL.

Pre-game fuel

Pre-game food and fluid intake are the final stages of recovery from a week of hard training to ensure the body is fully stocked before the game begins.

Why should you eat before the game?

Training day in, day out, can reduce the body’s energy reserves especially carbohydrate stores. This is why it is essential to replenish these after every training session. But it doesn’t just stop there, it is important that carbohydrate recovery is continued right up until the start of the game.

A pre-game intake of carbohydrate ensures that you have enough of this essential energy source to compete at 100% for the whole game and not run out of energy as the game goes on, which may happen if your carbohydrate stores are not fully loaded.

What should you eat before the game?

It is important that your pre-game meal is something you like! Most AFL footballers have a favourite pre-game meal that they will have regularly eat before heading out onto the field.

Usually the pre-game meal follows a few basic guidelines:

High in carbohydrate
Low in fat
Foods you enjoy and are comfortable with
Include a fluid choice with the meal
The timing of the pre-game meal is also an important consideration as eating too close to the game can cause an upset stomach, while having something too far in advance can mean you are hungry during the game

It is recommended that you eat your pre-game meal about two-to-four hours prior to the game.

This allows enough time for the food pass through the stomach and into the intestines where it can be absorbed for use. The exact timing of the meal will depend on how your body handles the pre-game build up.

Anxiety and nerves can cause disruptions in the digestion process and can lead to stomach upsets. If you are someone that suffers from nerves or anxiety it is a good idea to eat well before the game and consume lighter snacks or fluid choices closer to the game.

Pre-game meal examples:

Breakfast cereal or porridge and reduced fat milk
Toast or muffins with jam/honey/peanut butter
Baked beans or tinned spaghetti on toast
Pasta with a low fat tomato based sauce
Sandwiches or rolls
Creamed rice and tinned fruit
Rice or noodles and low fat stir fry
Low fat smoothies or liquid sports nutrition supplement (like Sustagen Sport)

Hydration before the game

Hydration is an important concern for AFL footballers and drinking enough in the lead up to a game is just as important as eating well. It is a good idea to consume fluid at your pre-game meal and in the hours leading up to the game.

Sports drinks provide the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. By consuming sports drinks leading into the game you can ensure that you have carbohydrate for energy and also sufficient fluid and electrolytes for adequate hydration.

Falcons Reserves fly to Grand Final

Tuesday, September 1, 2015 - 1:37 PM

What began as a tight wrestle for a sniff of the 2015 WAWFL reserves premiership ended in a Joondalup victory as the Falcons held on to defeat the Coastal Titans in an absolute nail biter at ATOM Stadium.

From the first bounce, neither side could break away from the other, with the majority of play dominating the center of the ground. The closeness of the contest was reflected in the scoreboard at 1.1 (7) a piece at quarter time. Taylor Evans (Titans) and Ashton Hill (Falcons) had one goal each to this point. Coastal Titan Amy Ash held up well in defence, proving important with plenty of marks among a plethora of forward dominance from Joondalup.

Perhaps the most impressive moment of the match arrived in the second quarter as Bella Ndayikze from Joondalup bolted inside fifty, ducked under a Titan tackle, dodged another opposition player with a side step and sent a goal strait through the middle to score her side their only goal for the quarter.

Although the third quarter only boasted two Falcon goals, it broke the game open and gave them a comfortable lead. The ball lived only in the Falcons forward 50, as the Titan half of the ground remained untouched for almost the entirety of the term.

Whilst the Falcons pushed for goals, they only managed 2.6 for the quarter, with an accuracy of only 25%, leaving the door wide open for a potential Titan comeback.

Though the Titans scored the only goal of the final quarter, with under ten minutes remaining they needed to more than double their score of 14, a score that took three quarters to achieve, in order to win.

The match was one full of energy, with the constant closeness of scores creating an exciting contest. The Falcons managed a close win in their Preliminary Final, though they will need to lift their intensity and scoreboard pressure if they’re to upset flag favourite Claremont this week.

Final Score: Joondalup Falcons 4.11 (35) def Coastal Titans 3.2 (20)
