Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

DOU­GLAS Ju­nior Net­ball started this week un­der cloudy con­di­tions and was lucky to play all di­vi­sions be­fore the rain started.

The 10-and-un­der game be­tween the Beach Babes in their hot pink T-Shirts and the Young Stars started off evenly with a goal at­tempt each in the first quar­ter.

The Beach Babes in the sec­ond quar­ter opened the flood gates and kept the ball down their scor­ing end with many at­tempts but great pres­sure by the Young Stars kept them from scor­ing too many goals.

Fan­tas­tic play by Ge­or­gia Crim­mins and Emma Vizard for the Young Stars kept the Beach Babes from run­ning away with the game with great at­tack­ing by Lani Dick­son and Chelsea Mckay. Fi­nal score Beach Babes won 4-1. The 12- and- un­der com­pe­ti­tion on court 1 saw the Di­a­monds play the Pythons both teams were slow to start with the wind and tough de­fence on both sides with best and fairest Char­lotte Dowling and play­ers choice Kyah Fran­cis both con­tribut­ing well to a low scor­ing game. Fi­nal score the Di­a­monds won 14-3. On court 3 the Saints played Ex­treme.

For the Saints McKen­zie Booth and Jaime Thurtell were driv­ing forces for their team both dis­play­ing fan­tas­tic at­tack and de­fence skills.

The Ex­treme team were ex­cep­tional in their de­fence with Jenna Ker­swell lead­ing the way and Carla Young ex­cel­lent in at­tack. Fi­nal score Saints won 8-2. In the 14-16 com­pe­ti­tion the Young Guns 1 team played the Hot Shots.

The game was well con­tested by both teams par­tic­u­larly in de­fence, the first quar­ter saw both teams with eight shots at goal.

The Young Guns 1 kept to their game plan and came away with the win.

Molly Lester and Ella Dodds were stand outs for their teams. Fi­nal score Young Guns 1 won 15-4.

The Young Guns 2 team played the Strik­ers on court 3.

The de­pleted Young Guns side due to a few of their play­ers on school camp ral­lied with new player Kourt­ney Briggs and put up a con­test against the strong Strik­ers.

For the Strik­ers Mikaela Good­win and Tyler Mous played well and for the Young Guns Jade Tate and Bon­nie Fran­cis stood up for their team. Fi­nal score Strik­ers won 29-4.
