What a contest this was
IN a fiercely contested first quarter both teams took some time to settle the nerves and not much separated the sides at quarter time.
Some positional changes at half time and some superb shooting by Bianca Willis allowed the Lakers to get out to a 5 goal lead at three quarter time.
Katie Sullivan led from the front for the Lakers and pushed through the heat to play a dominant role through the midcourt. While Vikki Bester, Rachael Mundy and Morgan Zotti worked hard defensively to limit Tally’s scoring opportunities.
Strong gusts of wind picked up in the final term causing havoc for the Lakers goalers, while the Tally girls never gave up and tied up the game at 36 a piece in the final minutes of the game.
Elizabeth Fuhrmeister provided some fresh legs in the centre for the 14 minute time on and quickly got her hands to some turnovers to help the Lakers edge out to a 5 goal lead.
Nagambie’s consistency to continue to perform under pressure saw the Laker girls swing the momentum in their way and take the Premiership Cup by 2 goals.
A fantastic game of netball and wonderful team effort by the Lakers.
Best on court medal went to goaler Bianca Willis.
