EAGLEHAWK and Kyneton will feature in the marquee game of the first Central Victorian Football League Women's indigenous round on Sunday.
The Hawks and Tigers will meet at Canterbury Park from 2.45pm with the game, which will feature indigenous guernseys, to also include a free BBQ and children's activities.
"The round aligns with NAIDOC Week and being the first indigenous round for women's football in Bendigo, it's really exciting to be part of," Eaglehawk captain Georgia Hyett said this week.
"It's a really meaningful game that we're looking forward to being involved in."
The Hawks under coach Geoff West have been the big improvers of the CVFLW this year.
After winning just two games in their previous season in 2019 the Hawks are well on the path to playing finals as they sit in third position with a 7-2 record.
"The girls have played some good football this year. We recruited in some experience, but overall we've been able to get good numbers to training each week and that has helped get the team to function well and play fluidly," Hyett said.
"Everyone is getting to know each other's skills well and we're all getting around each other and playing well as a team.
"It has been a really good turnaround from 2019, but it's just great to be back playing again after missing last year."
The Hawks head into Sunday's match against Kyneton on a five-game winning streak which started when they beat the Tigers by 32 points in their round five encounter.
Round 10 of the CVFLW season kicks off tonight with ladder-leader Golden Square hosting North Bendigo at Wade Street.
