A NEW team has emerged from Eidsvold to con­test the Mun­dub­bera net­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

The Movers and Shak­ers went down in their first match against Mun­dub­bera Wan­der­ers, but af­ter blow­ing out some of the cob­webs early in the match the Shak­ers showed some of their moves.

Fif­teen-year-old Jamie Hartwig said she was so happy to be play­ing with some of the best net­ballers in Eidsvold.

“We went down fight­ing tonight and I am proud of our ef­forts,” Jamie said.

“We will be bet­ter for the run tonight and we will come back next week bet­ter pre­pared.”

Wan­derer’s de­fender Jess Mierlo said she liked the way the Eidsvold girls came back in the sec­ond half.

“We won tonight 30 points to 9 and I think my team played well but the Eidsvold team didn’t give up and they re­ally put it to us in the third and fourth quar­ter,” Mierlo said.

“I will be in­ter­ested to see them at the end of the sea­son, they will be a lot fit­ter and they will know the rules a bit bet­ter.”

In the other games, the Candy Crush de­feated All Sorts 32-15 and BBP sur­prised An­gry Birds with a 21-13 victory.

Ev­ery Wed­nes­day night Mun­dub­bera Net­ball plays in the Mar­garet Kelly Hall at the Mun­dub­bera State School and this is a real spec­ta­tor sport with plenty of room to get in and cheer on your favourite team.
