Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

It was the first time we have hosted the Kan­ga­roos, and we were an­tic­i­pat­ing some good com­pe­ti­tion.

Con­di­tions at the Ren­nie Re­cre­ation Re­serve ap­peared al­most ideal, how­ever, the gusty con­di­tions were go­ing to prove to be a chal­lenge for goalers, and scores were mod­er­ate com­pared to pre­vi­ous rounds.

A Grade

Ren­nie 26 de­feated by Deni Rovers 33.

Jedda Nolen was back in the side this week and played an­other solid game.

She pro­vided the well-needed run through the cen­tre that we needed.

Jedda then swung into de­fence and teamed up with Lisa Han­dreck.

The com­bi­na­tion gave us the turnovers that saw our third quar­ter score just three goals down.

Brylee McCarty, Nat Har­ris and Lexie Nolen worked well in at­tack.

With a small amount of fine-tun­ing and some pa­tience in our de­ci­sion-mak­ing, our next few games will be on the im­prove.

Awards: Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel – Lisa Han­dreck, Judd’s Mens­land- Jedda Nolen and Bella Femme Ness – Brylee McCarty

B Grade

Ren­nie 26 de­feated Deni Rovers 22.

First win on the board for Ren­nie B Grade. Such a de­serv­ing win, for the team who played and worked hard all day.

Shoot­ers worked over time in the windy con­di­tions and de­fence held strong in and around the ring.

Mid court drove hard all day and made good pass­ing de­ci­sions.

Awards: Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel - Caitlin O’Dwyer, Lake Mul­wala Bak­ery - Leah Rowe and Bella Pelle - Laura Nunn.

C grade

Ren­nie 36 de­feated by Deni Rovers 41.

Af­ter be­ing a cou­ple play­ers short, C Grade knew it was go­ing to be a tall or­der, but much to their credit, they per­sisted.

On a very windy day, Deni’s goalers were amaz­ingly ac­cu­rate, putting our de­fence un­der enor­mous pres­sure, Te­gan held well in goal shooter, gain­ing some ground for us in the last quar­ter, to take out that quar­ter, but un­for­tu­nately wasn’t quite enough.

Well done girls on dig­ging deep and never giv­ing up.

Awards: Yar­ra­wonga Ho­tel –Eden Mackin­non, Win­gate’s – Kayla Steven­son and The Naked Tree - Te­gan Comber.

C Re­serve

Ren­nie 8 de­feated by Deni Rovers 40.

On a less than ideal day for play­ing net­ball with strong winds, it was al­ways go­ing to be a dif­fi­cult game to man­age.

Deni proved why they are a good team with strong pass­ing and the abil­ity to adapt to the con­di­tions and con­vert goals close to the ring.

Emily, Emma and Dee worked hard in the de­fense end all day gain­ing mul­ti­ple re­bounds which could only reach the mid-court be­fore mak­ing its way back down.

Tight de­fense from Deni made it hard for our goalers Zoe and Ez, with a score line that cer­tainly did not re­flect our en­deav­our.

Plenty to work on at train­ing and a re­minder to adapt to the con­di­tions and lead for­ward.

Awards: Judd’s Mens­land – Zoe Wor­land, Bal­ance Spin Stu­dio - Emily Stan­ley, and Yarra Hot Bread - Emma Ches­sells.

Un­der 17s

Ren­nie 39 de­feated Deni Rovers 8

Awards: Judd’s Mens­land – Phoebe Thorpe, Ac­tion Bike & Ski- Brylee McCarty and The Atha­neuem – Emily Coghill

Un­der 15s

Ren­nie 28 de­feated Deni Rovers 23

The girls came up against their tough­est op­po­nents so far this sea­son.

A very tall op­po­si­tion, with very good skills. The Hop­pers couldn’t get the flow of our game for the first few quar­ters, to be trail­ing by six goals at three quar­ter time.

With some changes and hard work the girls had a bril­liant last quar­ter with an eleven goal turn around to come home with a win by five goals.

So good to see ev­ery­one dig deep and play as a team.

Great win girls very proud of you all. Awards: Arnold/Hall Fam­ily – Brooke Big­ger, La Porchetta – Char­lie Hall and Judd’s – Brooke Knight Un­der 13s

Ren­nie 26 de­feated Deni Rovers 14

Great win by the girls to­day. Although the wind was against us, they fought hard, and kept our eyes on the ball. Well done girls.

Awards: Mul­wala Bak­ery – So­phie O’Dwyer, Ricky D’s – Sophia Shaw, Red­back Waste – Abbey Coghill and McDon­ald’s – Emily Ho­gan.

Un­der 11s

Windy con­di­tions on Satur­day didn’t im­pede Ren­nie’s spirit.

All play­ers who shot did a won­der­ful job scor­ing goals, with all the girls mak­ing good net­ball de­ci­sions on the court.

Awards: Arnold/Hall Fam­ily Award -Heleena Shaw, Yarra Fish ‘n’ Chips - Char­lotte Bur­rows and McDon­ald’s - Lucy Bas­sett.

Although is was a wet and cold evening, it was great to see many of our Net­ball Mums come and join their daugh­ters for net­ball train­ing, be­fore shar­ing in a din­ner that had been pre­pared by some very en­thu­si­as­tic Dad’s and foot­ballers.
