AROUND THE COURTS

Strath­mer­ton Net­ball Club played in two pre­lim­i­nary fi­nals on Satur­day. Won 67-40. A strong first quar­ter gave us a good lead which we were able to keep work­ing at and ex­tend through­out the game.

Our de­fen­sive pres­sure all over the court cre­ated many turnovers which we were able to bring steadily down to our goalers to con­vert, be­ing pa­tient and work­ing it around the ring.

We came out fir­ing and our drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion got us the spot in the grand fi­nal against Mathoura.

Well done girls, we’ve worked so hard, now let’s fin­ish it off strong.

Un­der-17

Won 41-23. The girls went out know­ing it was go­ing to be a tough game on Satur­day but never gave up a fight un­til the last whistle.

In the First quar­ter nerves showed from the Bull­dogs, which led to them be­ing down when the whistle blew, so they knew they had to give it their all go­ing into the sec­ond quar­ter.

With a hard fight and a great pep talk the girls found their feet in the sec­ond and third quar­ter which led to a huge win of 17 goals at the end of the day.

Thanks to the girls who sat on the bench and our amaz­ing sup­port­ers who helped us get to this point and most of all the Toc girls who gave us a good chal­lenge.
