2014 Broome Women's Football Grand Final

This year I have been taking part in the Clique Photo Competition, run by Fairfax Media.  Each month we get a different brief to fulfill, submitting one photo for judging.

This month's brief was 'Sport and Action', so when I found at the Grand Final of the Broome Women's Football competition was coming up I jumped at the chance to photograph it.

Sport photography, especially at night, was a very new challenge for me.  The early pictures were a bit iffy, but I think I got the hang of it by the end of the game.

It was a hard-fought match between The Pearls (in white) and Racing Guantanamo (orange).  End to end action that finished scoreless.  Racing won on penalties 2 - 1 (I think - I was concentrating on the photographs!), with the winning goal scored by their stand-in goalkeeper Gemma, who generally had a blinder!

Congratulations to all involved.
