Solid per­for­mance

McIvor Times - - SPORTS - By DAR­REN LEWIS

HEATH­COTE A grade net­ballers fought all the way in their Heath­cote and Dis­trict Net­ball league clash with North Bendigo on Sat­ur­day but the Bull­dogs still came out on top as 18-goal vic­tors.

North has been a net­ball pow­er­house over the years and Saints coach Lor­rae Closter and her play­ers knew they would need to bring their best ef­fort to the game.

From the first sec­ond both teams threw them­selves into every con­test and the ball moved swiftly from end to end.

In goals An­nal­yse Car­roll, Tammy McIntosh and Felic­ity Hasthorpe again worked well to­gether and their ef­forts saw a a re­spectable 40 goals scored for the day.

At the other end, the de­fend­ers were forced to work over­time as North con­tin­ued to pump the ball for­ward.

Jen and Chan Whit­ing stuck at their tasks but North had a pow­er­ful goaler in the ring who used her height to telling ef­fect.

Heath­cote was as­sured of plenty of scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties thanks to the hard work of the mid­court with Closter, Tyler McKe­own and Britt Shad­dock driv­ing the ball for­ward at every op­por­tu­nity.

The mid­courters worked over­time all day with Closter lead­ing the way with a best on court ef­fort.

The score dif­fer­ence was not a true in­di­ca­tion of the per­for­mance of the team on the day and the Saints look for­ward to the match against El­more this week.
