Mul­wala fi­nals cam­paign ends

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies Classies -

The last hope for Mul­wala, the C Grade net­ball team, bowed out this week in a tough semi­fi­nal against a de­ter­mined Finley side.

In near per­fect con­di­tions the Li­ons were ready to take on the Cats, hav­ing gone down to Finley by only 5 goals in the last round of the sea­son.

A few stead­fast sup­port­ers made the trek to Nu­murkah to sup­port the Li­ons in their fi­nals cam­paign.

Sadly though, this was to be their last game of the sea­son.

The match started well, with both sides find­ing a di­rect line into goals and the shoot­ers demon­strat­ing great ac­cu­racy at both ends of the court.

The Li­ons trailed by 3 goals at the quar­ter time break but con­fi­dence was high as they re­sumed play in the se­cond.

The Cats came out fir­ing, tak­ing the Li­ons by sur­prise and forc­ing a num­ber of turnovers which they were able to cap­i­talise on.

Mul­wala was rat­tled, with costly er­rors creep­ing into the game and af­fect­ing their con­fi­dence, while Finley con­tin­ued to build their lead, push­ing the mar­gin out to 14 by half time.

More po­si­tional changes were made in an ef­fort to coun­ter­act the Finley at­tack and the third quar­ter saw an im­prove­ment in de­fen­sive pres­sure and pas­sages of play down the court.

The Cats how­ever seemed to have the mo­men­tum as they con­tin­ued to build their lead to 23 by three quar­ter time.

At the fi­nal break, pas­sion­ate words from Coach Rhonda and Cap­tain Mary had the de­sired ef­fect and the Li­ons took to the court with noth­ing to lose.

They worked hard and started to peg back the lead, win­ning the quar­ter by 3 goals. Un­for­tu­nately though, all was too late and Finley ran out com­fort­able win­ners 55 to 35.
