Ju­niors kick off

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE Dou­glas Ju­nior Net­ball com­pe­ti­tion started this week with the 10-and-un­der Beach Babes play­ing Michelle Teas­dale’s learner team.

Michelle’s team have com­pleted seven weeks of their Net Set Go pro­gram and were ready to take the court against the Babes.

The new play­ers put in a great per­for­mance show­ing their newly learned skills scor­ing a goal against their more ex­pe­ri­enced op­po­si­tion.

Best play­ers were Evie Cot­ton, Chelsea McKay, Andy Hei­dke and Court­ney Geddes.

The Young Stars and Ali­son’s girls trained for half an hour then took the court both teams com­peted well, with Ali­son’s team show­ing they are ready to play net­ball.

Both sides had a great time and en­joyed their af­ter­noon of net­ball.

The com­pe­ti­tion hot­ted up with the Di­a­monds play­ing Ex­treme and al­though the Di­a­monds came out on top the Ex­treme team played a great game.

Both teams have new­com­ers who are set­tling in well.

Best and fairest went to Ma­rina Prince and Kyah Fran­cis and play­ers’ choice were Mikaela Fis­cher and Raine Ward.

The Pythons played the Saints and the Saints who are in great form started strongly to lead 4-0 af­ter the first half be­fore the Pythons fought back in the third quar­ter with two unan­swered goals.

But they could not keep it go­ing for a win and Saints won 5-2.

Best play­ers Jay Hei­dke, Tayhla Ca­di­ente, Jaime Thurtell and Koreena Min­niecon.

The Young Guns 1 team played the Strik­ers in the 14-16 com­pe­ti­tion.

The Young Guns side very de­pleted due to ill­ness with Kyah Fran­cis and Keely Harold for play­ing up from the 12s.

They strug­gled to score against the in- form Strik­ers but the sec­ond half proved to be a bet­ter com­bi­na­tion with the Young Guns scor­ing six goals com­pared to just one in the first, but not enough to make an im­pres­sion on the ex­pe­ri­enced Strik­ers who won 20-7.

Best play­ers were Madi­son Mal­one, Tiah McLean, Sa­maria Den­man and So­phie May.

The Hot Shots played Young guns 2 in a close game. Both teams were evenly matched with the Hot Shots up 6-5 at half time and looked to take the game as they were play­ing some very good team net­ball. The Young Guns set­tled into their game and even­tu­ally got away with the win 15-13. Best play­ers were Jade Tate, Daisy Hawkes, Sha­nia Ja­cob­sen and Molly Lester.
