Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

A grade: Rum­balara 42 def. Fin­ley 31.

Fin­ley came up against sec­ond place Rum­balara on Satur­day at home in very cold, windy and wet con­di­tions.

The fast pace Rum­balara got the jump in the first quar­ter to lead 15-6, which made the young Cats play catch-up all game.

Fin­ley ral­lied at the first break to re­group and win the sec­ond quar­ter 11-8 but weren’t able to hold off a de­ter­mined Rum­balara to go down by 11 at the fi­nal whis­tle.

Fin­ley still have a slim hope of mak­ing fi­nals with one home and away game to go.

Awards: RS Club - Eloise Ash­ley-Cooper; FFNC din­ner - Maicie Close.

B grade: Fin­ley 44 def. Rum­balara 30.

A great game by Fin­ley. The in­ten­sity was high and the pres­sure all over the court was ex­cel­lent.

Zoe Stephens had an out­stand­ing game in GD, cre­at­ing turnovers and tak­ing plenty of re­bounds.

Holly Robin­son ran hard in the cen­tre and Kee­ley Coates and Sha­nia Bent­ley shot beau­ti­fully in blus­tery con­di­tions.

Awards: Ea­gle-i – Zoe Stephens; Coun­try Club - Holly Robin­son; Nicky’s Teapot - Ally Rourke.

C Re­serve: Fin­ley 40 def. Rum­balara 28.

A great game from the team. Fin­ley tried a new com­bi­na­tion in the goal cir­cle with Sasha Wood mak­ing her de­but shoot­ing with her men­tor Karen Donkin.

Sasha’s time shoot­ing was short lived though and she re­turned to de­fence with her fel­low de­fend­ers Brid­get Te­gart and Ce­lene Jamieson who all com­bined well to shut down the op­po­si­tion.

El­yse Price took on the cen­tre po­si­tion with ease, pro­vid­ing great drive. Phoebe Doyle, Kaylee Lons­dale and Vanessa Geeves worked hard in the mid court to get the ball to the ever re­li­able shoot­ers Ni­cole Har­g­reaves and Karen Donkin.

Awards: Kelly Grains – El­yse Price; Nicky’s Teapot – Brid­get Te­gart.

U17: Fin­ley 26 def. Rum­balara 17. Great de­fen­sive work from Molly McGrath and Wynta Brain, and the mid court supplied good ball to the shoot­ers.

Awards: Sara Orro and Molly McGrath.

U13: Rum­balara 25 def. Fin­ley 20.

Fin­ley had a great start and were up un­til the last quar­ter but un­for­tu­nately couldn’t get over the line.

U11: Rum­balara 8 def. Fin­ley
