The Gold Coast SUNS made history on the weekend, recording the club’s first ever AFLW win in its first home game at Metricon Stadium against Richmond.
For Jacqui Yorston, it was a surreal moment being out on the field as the final siren sounded to signal the victory in front of over 7,000 home fans.
“I actually got goosebumps because no one knew what it was going to be,” Yorston told SUNS Media.
“No one knew if we were going to win a game or win all of them.
“So to finally get the win after one point last week, it was unreal.”
Yorston said she was proud of her teammates for their efforts to secure the win.
“The team footy that we played was absolutely incredible and I can’t fault it,” she said.
“Surprisingly I’m not as sore as I was last week so I reckon that has a lot to do with the win.
“I’m just buzzing and can’t wait to get into the review and looking forward to this week.”
The next assignment is taking on Brisbane in the first ever AFLW QClash at Metricon Stadium.
While she doesn’t let it affect her preparations, the match holds even more significance for Yorston who will take on her former club for the first time.
“Of course there will be (added significance), but you don’t want to overthink it too much,” she said.
“I know I’ve got friends on that team and a lot of the other girls do as well but as soon as we hit that field it’s the same game as any other.”
Yorston had just one message for fans thinking of coming to Metricon Stadium on Saturday afternoon for the 4:10pm match.
“Come out and watch us,” she said.
“We’ve got two games – us and the boys.
“You’ll be in for a good afternoon and night of footy.”
