With three net­ball teams vy­ing for a place in the grand fi­nal, there was plenty of sup­port from the side­lines.

Each team had al­ready proven to be wor­thy com­peti­tors, with a pos­i­tive mind­set and a prom­ise to leave noth­ing be­hind. Dookie was the venue for the fi­nal chal­lenge.

Ren­nie 21 de­feated by Shep­par­ton East 23 The girls started well, be­ing up one goal at quar­ter time, but the Ea­gles came out stronger in the next two quar­ters and the Hop­pers were down by six goals at three quar­ter time. A change of po­si­tions changed mo­men­tum in the last quar­ter and all the girls dug re­ally deep to get within one goal.

Un­for­tu­nately, Ren­nie ran out of time and went down by two goals.

To Emily, Nikita, Char­lie, Alainah, Anika, Phoebe, Suzy, Chloe and Hay­ley; thanks for be­ing a plea­sure to coach.

This year the club had a group of girls with a range of net­ball skills and who had not played to­gether be­fore and for them to get to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal was an awe­some achieve­ment.

Awards: YMGCR - Char­lie Har­g­reaves, Judd’s Mens­land - Chloe Forge and Athenaeum- Phoebe Thorpe.

Ren­nie 42 def Dookie 20 Another slow start saw Ren­nie have to work hard and set­tle back to the team every­one knows.

Mad­die McIn­ness led the team in the first quar­ter, which lifted the whole side, with mul­ti­ple in­ter­cepts and strong drives from de­fence.

Mya Bye played a fab­u­lous game, driv­ing and dom­i­nat­ing in WA and, Lexie Nolen took the lead in GS, show­ing true ver­sa­til­ity and re­ward­ing all the girls’ hard work.

Ev­ery girl on the court com­bined well and re­mained com­posed to en­sure a well-de­served place in the grand fi­nal next week.

B Grade

Ren­nie 32 def by Waaia 61 For the girls to make it to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal was a great achieve­ment for the whole team.

It was a slow start from the Ren­nie girls with Waaia able to take hold of the first quar­ter mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for the girls to get the score closer.

The girls never gave up and con­tin­ued to show great sports­man­ship for the whole game.

Pe­tra and Kayla worked hard in de­fence but the chal­lenge was great against ac­cu­rate shoot­ers.

Han­nah and Rach also in the de­fence end ap­plied a lot of pres­sure out­side of the ring and worked at clear­ing the ball into the mid­court.

Nada and Tayla were tire­less in the mid- court and were strong and com­posed in some phys­i­cal tus­sles.

Jedda showed great ver­sa­til­ity play­ing in WA and GA, and had her op­po­nents on their toes through­out the whole game.

Ebony and Karen in goals made the most of their op­por­tu­ni­ties and never gave up, de­spite the re­sult on the score­board.

Awards : Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel – Jedda Nolen, Kayla Oughton, Nada Nolen, Ebony Wil­liams, Ce­line Collins-Bye and Brooke McDougall.

Whether on the court or on the side­line, this was a tremen­dous team ef­fort.
