GOAL: The Good­ies’ Amy Golchert pre­pares to shoot a goal while Blue Cows’ Leann Bryant (GK) tries to sta­bilise Cris Bryant as he blocks the ball. BLUE Cows have con­tin­ued their dom­i­nance with a de­ci­sive 20-point win over The Good­ies in clash three of the Gayn­dah mixed netball sea­son.

Blue Cows pres­i­dent Leanne Bryant said the team may be on track to bet­ter their po­si­tion as last sea­son’s run­ners-up.

“We’re so far un­de­feated. We’ve got new re­cruits and we’re mix­ing up our po­si­tions a bit more,” Bryant said.

Bryant was thrilled to dis­cover new re­cruit Matt Parkin­son who “shoots beau­ti­fully” and said the new re­cruits had dropped the me­dian age of the team.

Blue Cows could “play our own game a lit­tle bit” with the ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers able to slow down the game, she said.

The Good­ies cap­tain Dael Gid­dins said Blue Cows’ key ad­van­tages were Cris and Leanne Bryant’s height and re­bound abil­ity.

“We need to get in front of play­ers – as they have too much height ad­van­tage – to re­ceive the ball,” Gid­dins said.

Gid­dins said de­fence by the Bryants re­stricted The Good­ies’ shoot­ers in the cir­cle.

“Their re­bounds were able to get back off our shoot­ers,” Gid­dins said.

“The Good­ies were able to in­ter­cept some of their passes down the court be­tween Ben Golchert and Ash­ley Skin­ner, but were un­able to con­vert when we got to the cir­cle.”
