Boomers ramp it up to take win

South Western Times - - SPORT - NET­BALL DAWN TESTROW

THE Eaton Boomers came from seven goals down at three-quar­ter time to beat last year’s premiers Bun­bury, 59-57, in a high-scor­ing match in round 5 of the Prin­tSync Net­ball Foot­ball League.

The Boomers be­lieve they are real con­tenders in the open di­vi­sion and played the last quar­ter with grit and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

Su­san Fuhrmann and Gemma Combes are a great com­bi­na­tion in goals while Taneika Han­d­ley is a work­horse in the cen­tre.

In goals for Bun­bury, Zoe Al­berti shot with in­cred­i­ble ac­cu­racy, es­pe­cially in the third quar­ter, which al­lowed the Tigers to get what they thought would be a match-win­ning break.

But Karla Swainson was swung from wing de­fence to goal keeper and man­aged to keep the goal scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties down while Fuhrmann at the other end dom­i­nated in the last quar­ter.

Th­ese two teams will meet again this Sun­day in what will be an in­ter­est­ing re­match.

There was an­other up­set on the week­end when Carey Park headed up the hill to Col­lie and keep­ing the com­pe­ti­tion ex­cit­ing the Pan­thers won 43-36.

The two teams went goal for goal in a scrappy game for the first three quar­ters and were locked in at 27-all go­ing into the last quar­ter but changes made to the Ea­gles line-up al­lowed the Pan­thers to run away with the game.

Two new play­ers in the Pan­thers line-up, Karinda Far­rant from Vic­to­ria and Lau­ren Green at goal shooter shot played great games, with Far­rant at goal keeper and Green re­bounded ev­ery one of Col­lie’s missed shots, and with a high per­cent- age rate. Tea­gan Roney in cen­tre was best for Col­lie, ably as­sisted by their de­fence line but un­for­tu­nately they missed too many goals.

Carey Park will go into their match against Mar­garet River this week look­ing for an­other win while Col­lie will take on South Bun­bury.

Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenaul­t eas­ily ac­counted for a de­pleted Mar­garet River team 46-29.

While Chloe Daniels worked hard in de­fence for the Hawks the cen­tre court com­bi­na­tion of Lau­ren Coaunon, Laura Jef­fery and Te­nille Treloar for the Li­ons was just too strong.
