The Southern Breakers Under 13 girls scored a 4-0 win over Adelaide City

The Southern Breakers Under 13 girls scored a fantastic 4-0 win over Adelaide City on Sunday to secure the runner-up position for the season.

A marvellous effort for the inaugural season of the first ever all-girls Port Elliot team.

The team welcomed Ella Keam back as goalie after several weeks off with injury and had a full bench of subs.

The Breakers started off into the strong gusting wind, but this made little difference as they started strongly and dominated much of the first half. It was exciting as the girls were all switched on.

Kayte O'Donnell went on an early run with the shot just going wide.

Only minutes later she was set up for another shot by some strong play by Amber Kim and the City goalie knew she was in for a tough day.

The Breakers first goal came shortly after from a good pass from Lucy Boundey to Nila Mohring who slotted the ball in easily.

The game went on with the Breakers doing most of the attacking with some excellent play in the midfield by Zara Yates, Alana Anderson and Polly Nelson.

Hayley Modra brought her usual tough physical game to the midfield and had a good shot on goal that was held up just a little too long by the wind.

O'Donnell went on another run and this time her finishing was flawless and the score went to 2-0.

The second half saw the Breakers gain the wind advantage.

Taylor Perry started strongly, tackling hard in the midfield to win the ball for the Breakers.

Hannah Rowlands, Lokke Rennerts and Bethany North, as they have all season, put up a wall of defence that the City girls struggled to get past.

The girls passing was excellent with another great play from Boundey to Mohring setting up O'Donnell again, but this time the City goalie managed to get the save.

The ball went back down to the City attack, but Modra's tackling got possession back and put the Breakers back in a scoring position.

O'Donnell got her second and the Breakers' third.

Another goal just moments later was ruled off-side.

Modra again came close to scoring when a goal kick went short.

The City goalie repeated the error just minutes later and this time Abbie Ellis pounced and scored with a fantastic shot for her third goal for the season.

Phoenix Giltinan almost made it 5-0 in the dying minutes.

A definite talent to watch next year as the Breakers look to field Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 girls' teams.

Southern Breakers had more success on the weekend with the Under 9 team having a draw 0-0, Under 11 Navy winning 5-1 and Under 15 Boys winning 3-1.
