THE Bendigo Thunder have suffered back-to-back defeats after losing on Sunday to a team they thrashed by 149 points in their opening game of the Northern Football League Women’s season.
The out-of-sorts Thunder were beaten 5.5 (35) to 4.5 (29) by Diamond Creek at C.T. Barling Reserve.
It was a remarkable turnaround in the space of just over two months for Diamond Creek given it lost 149-0 to the Thunder on April 15.
“We’re just not putting together consistent efforts for long enough to win games of footy at the moment,” Thunder coach Luis Alvarez-Harris said.
“We’ve got ourselves into a bit of a slump and we’ve certainly got some work to do over the next few weeks to get back on track.”
Having won their first five games by an average of 91 points, the Thunder have since lost three of their past four.
Andrea Walsh (three) and Amanda Carrod (one) kicked Bendigo’s four goals on Sunday. The best were Bella Ayre in her return from concussion, Kodi Jacques, Michelle Barkla, Olivia McEvoy, Carly Ladson and Walsh.
