In the scalp of the season, B Grade have created a foundation on and off the court and proved themselves in a nail-biter win against Modda. With knowledgeable support from coaches Liz and Maddy, the girls kept their cool and held their own. With defensive pressure from Ashlyn Connell and Matilda Thompson keeping their players out of the game, mid-court stars Naomi Caulfield and Mimi Jago were able to skillfully intercept and direct play down the court.
A goal-for-goal four-quarter effort by both sides was intensified by the growing crowds, however, the determination and guts from our B Grade girls kept their noses in front. Dynamic shooting superstar, Bella Northeast, would not let the girls give up. Her shooting percentage and mustering teamwork with Pearle Griffiths and Charlotte Furphy allowed the opposition to get frustrated and Modda-worried.
A fantastic show of netball fitness and agility allowed our B Grade champions to finish off with a 43-36 victory.
A Grade suffered a tough loss at the hands of some well-drilled opponents, 67-30. The much anticipated and welcome return of Paige and Hannah added spark and experience to the A grade lineup, both playing excellent games and showing that their time off had not dulled any of their talent and fitness.
Ebony played an excellent game to claim the 3 votes, playing in both WA and WD respectively. As a WA, she was pivotal in creating space and opportunity for the goalers, as well as defending hard to shut down Modda’s WA and, as always, putting her body on the line for her team. Kelsey Bews showed her resilience by showcasing an excellent 4 quarters in a tough defender’s circle, never once dropping her head, or giving up.
