Demons are too pow­er­ful

McIvor Times - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

IT WAS another tough game for Heath­cote’s A grade net­ballers on the week­end against an ex­cep­tion­ally strong White Hills side.

The Demons stepped up their de­fence and pres­sure, which forced the Saints to work re­ally hard.

It didn’t stop Heath­cote from los­ing its head, though, with the Saints stay­ing pos­i­tive.

The Heath­cote play­ers kept push­ing and sup­ported one another. Felicity Hasthorpe and Tammy McIn­tosh had a hard gig in the goal ring but once they had that ball they were on.

Lor­rae Closter, Tyler McKe­own and Britt Shad­dock played another smart game in the mid­court, cop­ping all the hard hits and didn’t stop run­ning all day.

Chan Whiting and Tanya O’Hal­lo­ran com­bined awe­some to­gether in de­fence and played a rip­per match against the very tall Demons goal shooter and su­per zippy goal at­tack — there wasn’t much else they could do.

The fi­nal score saw White Hills de­feat Heath­cote 73-23.

This week the girls have the week off for the in­ter­league bye.

With a few winnable games com­ing up after the break, the Saints will need to stay fo­cused and keep push­ing them­selves.

Player of the match went to the loud and handy wing de­fence Britt Shad­dock.
