Tungamah 42 defeated by Mulwala 47. Awards: Amy Nunn -Thyme for coffee, Molly Saunders -Judd’s
Tungamah 28 defeated by Mulwala 44. It was perfect day for netball. Tungamah knew it would be a tough game against Mulwala.
With a few changes to the side and new combinations the Bears had a slow start to the game finding it hard to get the ball into the goal ring.
The midcourt worked hard all game.
Jo, Brodie and Tegan never gave up in defence against a very accurate side. The heat tested everyone’s fitness but the Bears didn’t give up making the last quarter their best.
Tungamah 15 defeated by Mulwala 46. Great start by the girls. The Lions put into place all the areas they have been implementing at training.
Their defence in Kait, Josie and Amber kept the pressure on the goalies all day and they were helped out by Bernadette and Caity.
Mulwala then put the foot down and the Bears struggled with the pace of the game in the heat. The 4th quarter was better as the midcourt in Jess, Lani and Isobel worked well together feeding into the goalers Danielle and Remi.
Tungamah 18 defeated by Mulwala 73. Nerves and heat definitely took its toll on the Bears, also three team mates down.
The girls stepping into defense did an amazing job.
The coach couldn’t be more proud of the teams effort also a massive thank you to Grace Whitlock for helping out.

17 & Under
Tungamah 22 defeated by Mulwala 31. Tungamah played host on a sunny day to Mulwala with a great crowd cheering both teams on. They took some time to settle, getting used to Mul as well as still getting to know each other’s play.
By second quarter, they were intercepting and turning over the ball and the goals were going in.
Unfortunately the Bears passing became scrappy and some wild throws had Mulwala intercepting and taking the ball back down court.
15 & Under
Tungamah 17 defeated by Mulwala 37. The girls started off very slow which allowed Mulwala to get a run on early in the game, which the young Tungamah side couldn’t come back from the lead which Mulwala created.
The girls played very well as a team with little game time together.
Jade’s defensive pressure was exceptional around the ring and down the court.
The movement of Ruby Wallden in the attack end worked very well with the help of Amy.
Great games all round for the girls. Awards; Subway – Ruby Wallden, McDonalds – Jade Ralph, Yarrawonga Fish & Chips – Penny Thomson.
13 & Under
Tungamah 4 defeated by Mulwala 34. Mercy rule
Another hot day for the girls, which meant plenty of opportunities to move the girls around the court in different positions, to give players a rest and also to see where everyone’s abilities are. Unfortunately they didn’t come away with a win again, but Tungamah can’t wait for the rest of the year and how far these girls will come. Again they will keep putting in the practice at training, and hopefully see a win soon.
11 & Under
Tungamah 0 defeated by Mulwala 17. What a great first game. With Shaylee Pearce, Cheri Birks, Alektra Renau and Alani Petersen all making their netball debuts.
Maddison Purtell, Shylee Brown and Mia Elliott are all back for another year with Under 11s. Although the Bears were unable to score a goal, the girls worked together as a team and get some great intercepts and turnovers.
Thanks to Aleila and Mykie for helping us out with a quarter each.
Looking forward to a great year of learning all the basic skills.
