Col­binab­bin’s crush­ers roll over North Bendigo

Campaspe News - - SPORT -

COL­BINAB­BIN Net­ball Club’s A grade team looked to have a full strength line up this week, wel­com­ing back their shoot­ing star, Lou Dupuy.

Colbo showed com­po­sure in the first half with Jessie Geary dom­i­nat­ing in WA, build­ing a solid lead on North Bendigo.

The Cob­bledick sis­ters we un­stop­pable in the goal ring, which al­lowed Colbo to run away with the game by 44 points, 69-25.

The awards went to Jess Geary and An­nie Cob­bledick.

In A re­serve the girls knew they would have to play some of their best net­ball against North Bendigo and they came out strong with Meg Ben­nett tak­ing best on for the day.

Her strong de­fence cre­ated many turnovers and she moved the ball well down the court to help the 51-40 vic­tory.

They worked well as a team, ad­just­ing to dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions down the court and the girls should also be com­mended for their pos­i­tiv­ity on the court, hold­ing strong with a young at­tack­ing line up in the last quar­ter when North made a late surge.

The Hop­pers came out strong in the B grade match against the Bull­dogs.

Me­gan Fuller and Te­gan Budge were quick on the re­bounds in de­fence, with Sha­nee Squire giv­ing great sup­port and good open­ings in WD.

Demi Tay­lor and Sher­vena Shead moved the ball to the goaler ac­cu­rately, where Tr­ish Wilkin­son and Hannah Coghill worked smoothly to­gether as a team.

Hannah Mor­gan swapped be­tween C and GA play­ing strongly in both po­si­tions.

North proved to be too strong this week win­ning 35-17 and Me­gan Fuller was awarded best on for her strong de­fence through­out the game.

B re­serve had not de­feated North for a while and the girls knew Satur­day would be a tough game.

Com­ing out with pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes and team sup­port the girls broke the streak hav­ing a great win 54-25.

Hannah Blow was piv­otal in the mid court while young guns Dom Palmer and Ella Ker­lin stepped up and had great games in goals.

In the un­der 17s the Colbo girls were told to come out fir­ing and they switched on early to get the jump on their op­po­nents in the first half.

Harper Pearson was a stand­out in de­fence sav­ing many scor­ing shots and keep­ing up the pres­sure for the whole game.

There were plenty of safe hands and steady op­tions through the mid­court and the goalers dis­played great team­work and pa­tience, with Mardi Ryan re­ceiv­ing the best on court award.

Colbo came out as 19 goal win­ners, 52-33.

The baby Hop­pers jumped out of the blocks from the first whis­tle in the un­der 15s with all girls play­ing steady net­ball and cap­i­tal­is­ing on all turnovers.

With a large lead at the first break many changes were made in the next two quar­ters, giv­ing the girls ex­po­sure to dif­fer­ent po­si­tions and com­bi­na­tions.

The fi­nal quar­ter saw the reg­u­lar goal­ing com­bi­na­tion of Ella Ker­lin and Dom Palmer back to­gether to pile on 20 goals to come out well and truly on top.

The in­cen­tive award went to Lilly McAr­dle who played a con­sis­tent game in the de­fen­sive end, es­pe­cially when put into GK where she was able to ad­just and pro­duce many turnovers help­ing to win 61-8.

Round six saw the baby Hop­pers at home up against a speedy North Bendigo in Pri­mary D grade.

Some of our ex­pe­ri­enced girls took to the bench for two quar­ters in great sports­man­ship, Jo, Leila and Zoe.

It was great to see some of our younger play­ers show some of the skills they have learnt through­out the sea­son.

Jas­mine Moroney played some ex­cel­lent net­ball in dif­fer­ent po­si­tions earn­ing her best on court for the day.

The in­cen­tive award went to Amayah who for a young player cer­tainly has a big voice and lots of con­fi­dence.
