Ju­niors pump up con­test in Dou­glas Net­ball As­soc

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SOME fan­tas­tic games were played in Round 2 of the Dou­glas Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion com­pe­ti­tion.

The ju­nior play­ers put in a solid ef­fort re­sult­ing in some close score lines. Jets took on Pan­thers 12-15 and Moss­man Magic played Fire­birds 14-10. Lou Broadley, DNA trea­surer and ju­nior team coach, said of the girls ef­fort, “It’s fan­tas­tic to see the young mem­bers im­prov­ing their skills and en­joy­ing them­selves on court as well.”

The Cro­cettes side made a promis­ing start, with strong de­fence on the open­ing cen­tre pass lead­ing to an early turnover and an early lead for the Di­a­monds.

Both sides were in great form re­sult­ing a very watch­able game with an­other close score line 22-24.

Player’s choice went to Jor­dan Scott and Lani Dick­son, both girls play­ing ex­cep­tion­ally well.

Mud­skip­pers and Rat­tle 1 faced off, Mud­skip­pers snatch­ing the win 27-18. Rat­tle 1 player Lau­ren Rad­cliffe was name both player’s choice and best and fairest. Renna Sayed was play­ers choice for the Mud­skip­pers.

Young Guns 3 bat­tled it out against Rat­tle 2 in a very phys­i­cal game, with the Rat­tle shoot­ers fight­ing the windy con­di­tions to win 33-15.

Tracey But­land from Rat­tle 2 was named best and fairest.

The Young Guns ver­sus Cougars matchup saw the Young Guns play­ers work hard to slow the ball through the court and pre­vent any easy looks into Cougars’ sharp­shooter Cas­san­dra Cairns. It took the Young Guns a cou­ple of min­utes to ad­just to the pres­sure and set­tle into their rhythm, ul­ti­mately com­ing away with win 36-31. Lana Bax­ter and Mar­ley Cairns were name play­ers choice and Kyah Fran­cis of the Young Guns best and fairest.
