NET­BALL: Gayn­dah’s net­ball fi­nals came to a fast-paced con­clu­sion, which ended when Just4Play pre­vailed against Blue Cow.

The two mixed net­ball teams came out fir­ing on Mon­day, as they vied for sport­ing glory.

Just4Play’s Ja­son and Maria McCosker and Sally Jolly set the pace in the first quar­ter, pro­duc­ing re­lent­less of­fen­sive at­tacks.

Blue Cow’s Lisa Baker, Jayne Evens and Mitch Baker were at a loss on how to stop the on­slaught, trail­ing 2–6 at the first break.

A change of po­si­tions by both teams saw Just4Play cap­i­talise on sev­eral loose balls in the se­cond quar­ter.

Ac­cu­rate shoot­ing paid div­i­dends for Just4Play, keep­ing the lead of 12–8 at half­time.

The third quar­ter saw a brave fight back from Blue Cow, with sub­bing changes al­low­ing them to come within reach, end­ing the third quar­ter on 14–12.

Just4Play’s de­ter­mi­na­tion for every loose ball, part­nered with their smooth ball move­ment, shut down any chance of a come­back for Blue Cow, win­ning the match 23–13.

Tro­phies were pre­sented to the un­de­feated Just4Play as win­ners of the 2019–20 sea­son.

Karen Men­doza and Tom Holt were named best and fairest play­ers for the sea­son for their tire­less ef­forts.
