Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

DOU­GLAS Net­ball trav­elled with five teams to In­n­is­fail last week­end for the Mar­lin Coast Fowler’s Group Car­ni­val.

Al­most 40 teams com­peted in seven di­vi­sions rang­ing from Un­der-11s to Se­niors.

The Dou­glas teams played some fan­tas­tic net­ball in all age groups.

The stars of the week­end were the Un­der­12s who came away with run­ners-up in Di­vi­sion 4 win­ning five games, one draw and two losses, the team coached by Jodi Fran­cis, played some bril­liant net­ball and beat the top side the Radars of their age group with some fan­tas­tic team work.

The Un­der-11s coached by Alex Hei­dke had three wins over the week­end and were very com­pet­i­tive.

The girls en­joyed their net­ball and showed great sports­man­ship, all were very keen and had some close games and all had lots of fun play­ing.

The Un­der-14 team coached by Sharon Beechey in Di­vi­sion 3 ended with equal points for run­ners-up but came third on the high­est goal av­er­age.

The team played against some very good com­pe­ti­tion the high­light be­ing their last game of the week­end against the bench­mark team the Radars who they pushed the whole game which ended in a draw.

The Jets also coached by Sharon Beechey com­peted in Di­vi­sion 2 the girls played well win­ning three games over the car­ni­val against some very good com­pe­ti­tion.

Many of these girls also played a cou­ple of games up in the se­niors who strug­gled for num­bers and they sup­ported the younger teams by cheer­ing them on.

The se­nior team whose num­bers were made up by ju­nior play­ers and mum Eryn Harold who came to watch her girls play ended up play­ing ev­ery game in the se­niors in de­fence and ex­celled at it as well.

The se­niors took run­ners up for the car­ni­val.
