Matilda Lock­yer had her eye in the ring early on with beau­ti­ful goal­ing.

Elle Palmer dom­i­nated in de­fence with plenty of re­bounds and in­ter­cepts.

Ella McPhee and An­nie Hughes shot ac­cu­rately and worked ef­fi­ciently to­gether in the ring to re­ward the hard work all down the court.

Ella Roul­ston and Han­nah Eg­gle­stone passed per­fectly into the goalers and worked hard down the court.

A strong sec­ond quar­ter saw the girls kick it up a gear and take a solid lead by half time.

The re­set saw the girls take con­trol of the game again and ex­tend their lead.

Shan­nen Keath was bril­liant de­fen­sively, keep­ing her goaler out of the game and tak­ing strong in­ter­cepts earn­ing her best on court.

Tess Teggelove and Sahra Brooks com­bined ef­fort­lessly to­gether in the ring and shot with ac­cu­racy.

Brid­gette Holt and Maddy Eg­gle­stone picked off plenty of float­ing balls and Eg­gle­stone showed de­ter­mi­na­tion and never gave up de­spite play­ing on a much taller op­po­nent.

Ee­sha Clarke and El­lie Cut­triss drove the ball down the court well and drove into space.

Teaghan Val­lely ap­plied lots of hands over pres­sure and caused many turnovers.
