Bright net­ballers in good form

Alpine Observer - - Front Page - By JUSTIN JENVEY

BRIGHT has re­gained its place in the A grade net­ball top six af­ter dom­i­nat­ing Be­nalla on Satur­day.

The Moun­tain Maids racked up there equal-high­est goal tally of the sea­son net­ting 61 times with shoot­ers Kate Buck­ley and Emily O’Neil only miss­ing one in ev­ery four at­tempts.

Buck­ley fin­ished with 31 goals and O’Neil 30 in the 61-25 win.

Against a lower placed side coach Ge­orgie Mat­ters also took the op­por­tu­nity to try some of the club’s up and com­ing ta­lent in the top grade.

Brit­ney Fitz­patrick and Sha­ley Mackay, who had ear­lier helped keep their C grade side’s per­fect record in­tact by lim­it­ing Be­nalla to just one goal in the sec­ond half, saw game time in two quar­ters.

Bright’s B grade re­mained only per­cent­age out­side the top six af­ter up­set­ting Be- nalla in a sur­prise re­sult.

Bright got the jump on the All Blacks with a 14-7 open­ing quar­ter and never looked back, ex­tend­ing their lead over the next three terms to run out 47-38 win­ners.

Jedda McIntosh was named best on court with 21 goals while Marnie Witts played her usual strong game in the mid­court.

B Re­serve en­joyed a com­fort­able 47-22 win led by Nat Kelly and Tam­neka Mackay, while Jess Carnes scored 28 goals.

In C grade, Bright outscored Be­nalla 26-1 af­ter half­time af­ter a mas­sive early scare that saw them only three goals up at the main break against an op­po­si­tion they should of had few trou­bles get­ting passed.

And in a re­match of last year’s un­der 15 grand fi­nal Bright came out on top, main­tain­ing premiership favouritism with a 30-16 re­sult.

Het­tie Hurst fin­ished with 23 from 30 shots.

HOLD­ING PO­SI­TION: Ebony Fitz­patrick calls for a pass in Bright’s match against Be­nalla in un­der 15s on Satur­day.
