- Sports · Bristol Rovers F.C. · Southampton F.C. · McDonald's · Berrigan

Deni Rovers’ net­ballers trav­elled to Ber­ri­gan for the fi­nal round of the Pi­cola & District League home and away sea­son on Satur­day.

In what were beau­ti­ful con­di­tions for net­ball, the Roos fin­ished their year off with some strong per­for­mances.

Re­sults from the day were as fol­lows: Un­der 11s: The Un­der 11 Roos again showed an ex­cel­lent dis­play of net­ball in their last game for 2020.

They did what was asked from coach Lucy Horne once again, at­tack­ing the ball with ev­ery­thing they had.

When the ball was turned over they de­fended well and shot with ac­cu­racy. No scores were recorded.

Rovers awards: Sub­way - Amelie Bul­mer; In­ter­sport Ben­nett’s - Lexi Hussey.

Un­der 13s: The Deni Rovers man­aged to score a 10 goal win against a strong Ber­ri­gan side on Satur­day.

Kate Jenk­ins was a strong com­peti­tor in de­fence, ap­ply­ing pres­sure to the Saints’ shoot­ers.

Gabby Wade fought hard in the mid­court gain­ing many in­ter­cepts while at the other end of the court the Rovers shoot­ers fought hard all game and were too strong for Ber­ri­gan’s de­fend­ers.

Fi­nal score, Deni Rovers 26 to Ber­ri­gan 16.

Rovers awards: Sub­way - Kate Jenk­ins; McDon­ald’s - Rea­gan Behs­man.

Un­der 15s: The Rovers U15s team ex­pected a tough game against Ber­ri­gan and that’s ex­actly what they got.

The first quar­ter of net­ball was a fairly even 15 min­utes played by both teams.

The sec­ond term saw the Rovers step up and re­gain their usual net­ball stan­dard.

Strong de­fence led by Matilda Glowrey and Erika Martin cre­ated many turnovers for the Roos.

They were well sup­ported by Elena Mul­ham and Shane´ Bothma, who brought the ball down the court to their at­tack­ers.

Lucy Pitt stepped up to play a great game at WA and was well sup­ported by the re­li­able Abby White­horn in the mid­court.

Deni fin­ished the third and fourth quar­ters strongly to bring home the 15 goal win.

Fi­nal score, Deni Rovers 27 to Ber­ri­gan 12.

Rovers awards: Sub­way - Matilda Glowrey; Cruzin* Diner - Erika Martin.

Un­der 17s: It was a fast and phys­i­cal en­counter when the Un­der 17s Roos met Ber­ri­gan for the last round of the sea­son.

The Saints started strong and con­tin­ued their dom­i­nance for the en­tire game.

In the first few min­utes, shooter Gra­cie Wil­lis went down with a hard knock and had to leave the court. This re­sulted in many po­si­tional changes for the Roos.

De­fend­ers Ed­wina Bar­clay and Char­lotte Strong worked tire­lessly through­out the game and pro­vided many turnovers.

Emma East held her own against some tough op­po­si­tion. She was able to hold strong and re­ceive the ball from some ac­cu­rate feeds from Ge­or­gia McCul­loch and Si­enna Jenk­ins.

Fi­nal score, Ber­ri­gan 58 to Deni Rovers 7. Rovers awards: De­cen­tralised De­mount­a­bles - Emma East; Deni Driver Train­ing - Char­lotte Strong.
