The competition is getting tougher with each week.
With five teams playing over the weekend, the Rennie girls were very appreciative of the amount of support received for all teams playing.
Rennie 32 defeated Shepparton East 29 Rennie took on Shepparton East, a team the girls haven’t been able to beat all year.
The girls dug deep and maintained a small lead at each break but stuck together as a team and worked hard all over the court.
A well-deserved win for the team that keeps pushing themselves.

Tungamah 43 def Rennie 32 After some light rain in the morning the courts were looking slippery for the Rennie Tungamah showdown.
Finishing on top Rennie came out strong with some great defensive work and accurate shooting although they couldn’t seem to get past Abbey and Alyssa’s amazing defence.
A few turnovers and Tungamah had a 5 goal lead.
The girls all knew they couldn’t let this go and had to work extremely hard if there was a turnover.
Slow paced in the wet and accurate passing had the ball into the Tungamah goal end for Molly to shoot her 450th goal for the season and for Adele to gracefully pop them in from every direction.
The girls were giving it everything and fight-

Rennie 32 defeated by Tungamah 43. A strong and settled Tungamah team came up against Rennie this week.
Unfortunately the girls couldn’t settle and find their groove.
With a lot to take out of the game, the girls will go away, regroup and work hard.
Chelsea Beavis and Maddie McInness were the leading players in defence and will hold the Rennie girls in good stead in their challenge this week.

The girls have come together as a team over the past year and you could see that they had each other’s back throughout the whole game, cheering for every goal shot and backing each other up.
They held it together when the pressure was on and fought hard for every goal we scored.
A well-deserved 11 goal win and a place in the grand final.
Tungamah 38 def Rennie 14. A whole season without a drop of rain, yet come finals day and the sky was about to open up.
As the whistle blew, Rennie had centre pass, and the drops of rain started to fall.
Rennie immediately got the ball down their end and goaled.

Rennie 14 defeated by Tungamah 38. A tough day for the girls, not their best game by far.
Being down by ten goals in the first quarter, made it difficult to make up against a strong opposition.
The girls tried but weren’t good enough on the day.
This week they really need to lift and bring their best game to progress.

The Tungamah girls were nervous and they needed to settle if they were to gain control.
A couple of minutes of nervous play went by and then the Tungamah girls found their mojo and it was on.
Beautiful drives forward by mid court down to Sarah and Liv had them using the girls on the ring and moving around the goal circle to line up their shot for goal, and then shoot straight.
Both Sarah and Liv throughout the whole game shot exceptionally well.
The whole game had them shooting at their best, with over 90 percent of goals going in, it was an incredible effort.
Emma, Ella C, Chloe and Chantelle worked hard causing turnovers and with their loud calling to each other worked their way down the court to the shooters.
Light rain persisted throughout and as the midcourts travelled backwards and forwards

Rennie 23 defeated Waaia 17 The girls did an absolutely wonderful job keeping a cool head and steady ship, to walk away with the win.
An excellent second quarter gave the girls the lead they needed to maintain.
Great defensive pressure allowed multiple turnovers. Strong driving and space gave good ball movement.
A few small errors to work on in preparation for a tough grand final competition.
Awards: Yarrawonga Golf Club - Abbey Coghill, Judd’s Mensland - Ella Rhodes and Mulwala Bakery - Sophie O’Dwyer. attacking and deflecting the ball, Ella C and Emma both, as always, were focussed on winning the ball.
Chloe and Chantelle created space and intercepted and caused turnovers.
The defence was on fire. Ella J had her work cut out for her from an equally impressive opponent but showed why she equally won the league best and fairest.
Grace came from out of nowhere on lots of occasions attacking the ball and stopping play.
Hard work pays off and the girls now have a chance to win the grand final.
Thank you to Ruby and Penny who sat on the bench.
Deb and Sarah as well as the whole football netball club are super proud of their girls and wish them the very best for the grand final in two weeks’ time.
