Saints take out flag in Wan­garatta

Alpine Observer - - Sport - By CAM POTTER

AN as­so­ci­a­tion with the se­nior Myrtle­ford Net­ball Club has paid div­i­dends for the up and com­ing Wan­garatta Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion Saints Red side that de­feated town ri­vals Myrtle­ford Stars on Au­gust 26.

The Stars had trou­bled Saints Red all sea­son with nine, three and 14 goal wins over the Saints this year, but the Saints took out the Stars 26-22 in a great team dis­play.

Saints Red also took to the court with pos­si­bly the youngest side in Pre­mier B, with three year seven play­ers and the re­main­der of the side in year six up against year eights and nines in a clas­sic un­der­dog story.

“It was a great team ef- fort,” Saints Red coach Nella Mu­raca said.

“The girls knew what they wanted to do, they set goals and they set out to achieve them.

“We shot much bet­ter than we had all sea­son, we were in a bet­ter head space and I think play­ing the un­der 16s on Thurs­day night re­ally helped.

“The girls have grown so much this year be­cause of that re­la­tion­ship with the se­nior club.

“It was a very ex­cit­ing game.”
