Net­ball U15 — White Hills 40 def. Colbo 15

With both shoot­ers out for the sec­ond semi-fi­nal, Colbo knew they were in for a tough bat­tle.

The first quar­ter saw White Hills play a very de­fen­sive game forc­ing Colbo to make a lot of un­forced er­rors.

Keely Parker worked tire­lessly with quick hands feed­ing our goalies Tanzin and El­lie, how­ever they just wouldn't drop end­ing the quar­ter 3-10 down.

The sec­ond quar­ter saw a change of Zoe GD to GA and Tanzin from GA to GD and the girls came out strong to start, Zoe shooting a few quick goals.

The de­fence Tahlia, Tanzin and Laura took many in­ter­cepts cre­at­ing turn­arounds, how­ever they weren't able to con­vert them into goal los­ing 8-17

The third quar­ter the girls con­tin­ued to fight hard still cre­at­ing turnovers but not be­ing able to turn them into points.

White Hills’ de­fence was too tight for our shoot­ers Zoe and El­lie prov­ing it very hard to get con­trol of the ball. White Hills lead­ing 28-11. With the first warm day for the sea­son both teams looked ex­hausted dur­ing the fourth quar­ter and both fought hard to se­cure a spot in the grand fi­nal.

White Hills played a fan­tas­tic game which saw Colbo un­der 15s lose their first game for the sea­son. U17s — El­more 40 def. Colbo 39 What a nail biter of a game. The girls fought their hard­est to keep within reach of a win to­day.

Great catch ups each quar­ter af­ter be­ing down by seven at one point.

The El­more girls were de­ter­mined to be first to the fi­nal.

An ex­cep­tional game from our tanned legs and well-kept pony­tails.

Un­der pres­sure, Colbo re­mained calm right up un­til the fi­nal siren.

The sec­ond quar­ter was even more pro­duc­tive as the Hop­pers booted 5.3 to the Demons 1.4, to ex­tend the half time lead to thirty-eight points.
