Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Jil­lian McKee

THE Orig­i­nals di­vi­sion 1 side has beaten Has­sall Grove in a nail-bit­ing net­ball grand fi­nal last Satur­day.

The girls bat­tled with un­sea­son­ably hot weather on the week­end, mak­ing the game dif­fi­cult, how­ever, were able to come out on top, win­ning 37-30.

Coach Lyn Con­dran said it could have been any­body’s game.

“Di­vi­sion 1 is al­ways go­ing to be tough, but our girls felt they had to prove them­selves,” Con­dran said.

This year was the first year the Orig­i­nals had made the grand fi­nal, af­ter only hav­ing been es­tab­lished in 2014.

With ages rang­ing from 15-57, each player had dif­fer­ent lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence go­ing into the fi­nal.

“I can’t ex­plain how happy the girls were – they screamed like lit­tle kids,” Con­dran said.

All of the play­ers agreed they would be com­ing back to play next year.

Di­vi­sion 1 is al­ways go­ing to be tough, but our girls felt they had to prove them­selves.
