Mul­wala 50 de­feated by Ba­rooga 55

A grade fell short in a close and tough en­counter with Ba­rooga, fight­ing for 8th spot on the lad­der, with two new young guns, Hol­lie and Tess McNa­mara, step­ping up to play se­nior net­ball and fit­ting into the team nicely.

The Lions started well and matched the Hawks goal for goal in the first quar­ter, trail­ing by one at the first break.

A strong se­cond quar­ter saw the Lions con­tinue to keep pace with the Hawks show­ing de­ter­mi­na­tion and some smart play in the goal ring.

Jordy and Steph worked over­time in goals with Grace, Hol­lie and Tess feed­ing them well, whilst Brodie, Tayce, Cara and Jess Thom­son had their work cut out in de­fence.

How­ever, a few silly er­rors in the third quar­ter saw Ba­rooga take the lead, forc­ing the Lions to play catch up in the last quar­ter.

A great game with some ex­cel­lent pas­sages of play and the last quar­ter one of the Lion’s best.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – Grace Thom­son, MFNC Re­wards Card – Steph Ham­mond, One Zach – Jordy Mc­Carthy. Mul­wala 46 de­feated Ba­rooga 34 The B grade girls had another ter­rific win against a phys­i­cally tough team. They fought all day, with Tea­gan and Téa lead­ing the team with ac­cu­racy and re­bound­ing balls in the goal ring.

The de­fence end was up­held through Lisa and Emme, with the hard work in the mid court by Tayla, Shanny, Ge­or­gia and Emma cre­at­ing turnovers.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – Tea­gan Pan­ter, MFNC Re­wards Card – Tayla McNa­mara, Judds Yar­ra­wonga – Emme Shand.

The mid court play­ers all brought the ball down the court well and the goalers fin­ished it off nicely with their shoot­ing ac­cu­racy.

The Lions went into the last quar­ter 5 goals up and con­fi­dent of a win.

How­ever Ba­rooga scored a few quick goals that Mul­wala couldn’t match, re­sult­ing is some costly er­rors as the girls dropped their heads.

Keep fight­ing girls and show ev­ery­one how big the Lion hearts are.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – Heidi Ma­gro, MFNC Re­wards Card – Nic Christo­phersen, Judds Yar­ra­wonga – Jess Bar­ton. Mul­wala 45 de­feated Ba­rooga 34 With the scores goal for goal in the first half the Lions needed to dig deep and ramp up the in­ten­sity. Mul­wala showed their con­sis­tency and de­ter­mi­na­tion tak­ing off in the 3rd quar­ter to win con­vinc­ingly in the end. Great team work by all.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – Tara Green, MFNC Re­wards Card – Maddi Cook­sey & Mon­tanah Moon, Win­gates – Tyler Leonard. Mul­wala 3 de­feated by Ba­rooga 33 The Lions never dropped their heads once even when they had their set 4 on the bench in the se­cond quar­ter.

Ev­ery­one fought for the ball how­ever Ba­rooga were just too strong.

Need to work on the front cuts but in time it will get there.

The coaches are so proud of ev­ery­one and how all play­ers coped with the changes each quar­ter with mak­ing a change to 4 po­si­tions each time.

Train­ing this week will be a good hard sesh where the Lions can im­prove on the lit­tle er­rors. Top ef­fort girls.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – Jess Line­han, YMGCR – Bel Wal­she, La Porchetta – Paige Mur­fitt. Mul­wala 1 de­feated by Ba­rooga 31

This week the girls were up for a chal­lenge, start­ing the game slowly, they man­aged to come out strong with tight de­fence.

Both Maisee and Milla stepped up this week and guided the team in de­fence, keep­ing their play­ers limited to the ring.

With plenty of de­ter­mi­na­tion, lit­tle Emily didn’t give up de­spite the score and she man­aged to have per­fect passes through the cen­tre, and topped off the game with her first goal for the year in GA. Learning new skills ev­ery week, and train­ing hard, the girls are so close to com­ing home with a win, they should be su­per proud of their ef­forts.

Awards: Food­works Top Lion – My­ley McG­lynn, YMGCR – Emily Line­han, Travel & Cruise Yar­ra­wonga – Jemma Riches.

Stephanie Ham­mond was one of the Lions best.

Emma Grant looks to pass off.
