GIRLS' FOOTY: Port Pirie was represented by two teams at Port Augusta at the weekend.

Port Pirie was represented by two girls' teams at a carnival held in Port Augusta on June 30. They were competing with teams from Port Augusta, Whyalla and Northern Areas.

The girls did not win many games but it was a great opportunity for them to kick a football in a game style format.

For some girls it was the first time they have ever played in a match.

With these opportunities we hope to see more and more girls become involved in Australian Rules Football.
