REN­NIE NET­BALL

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Sport -

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.

B Grade

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.

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.
