Southern Riverina news - - Local Classies -

Fin­ley hosted arch ri­val Tocumwal un­der lights on Satur­day night in Mur­ray League net­ball.

Un­der 11s: The lit­tle cat­ters started the sea­son with great style win­ning by an im­pres­sive 15 goals! Sa­van­nah Wil­son and Sarah Orro shot beau­ti­fully, al­low­ing the de­fend­ers no chance to get any re­bounds. Ke­z­ley Mur­phy-rid­dell and Jo­han­nah Tessier took some amaz­ing in­ter­cepts and passed ex­tremely well into the goal cir­cle, Kee­ley was very strong in de­fence work­ing well with Bella. Sarah Haynes al­ways had her hands over the ball and passed the ball won­der­fully. The girls com­bined beau­ti­fully hav­ing a great game.

Un­der 12s: We had a great game against Tocumwal, win­ning con­vinc­ingly 35 to 2. Great re­cov­ery af­ter last week’s dis­ap­point­ing loss by one to Mul­wala. Chelsea Tay­lor won the award for strong shoot­ing and de­fence. Great games were also had by Eloise and Dora. Well done Girls! Un­der 13s: No Game. Un­der 15s: Won con­vinc­ingly, 52 to 15.

Un­der 17s: The girls had a great game play­ing con­sis­tent, strong net­ball for the four quar­ters. Fin­ley had strength all over the court win­ning 37 to 10. Emma Miles made Fin­ley’s in­ten­tion clear early, tak­ing four in­ter­cepts in the first quar­ter.

Beth shot beau­ti­fully earn­ing her­self best on, whilst Zoe was re­li­able in WA gain­ing the Hong Loch award. All girls had great games.

C re­serve: A blis­ter­ing start by our at­tack end, putting per­fectly into play what we prac­tised on Thurs­day, but un­able to take the win with a score of 49 to 54.

Great shoot­ing and move­ment by Bec and Dayna. Steph read the play beau­ti­fully in de­fence, tak­ing nu­mer­ous in­ter­cepts and teamed well with Loren. Great drives in the cen­tre with Libby who was ably sup­ported by Karen, Mia, Melissa and Ce­leste. Awe­some ef­fort girls. Awards: Stephanie Vance, Libby Small.

C grade: In a very close game we were lucky to come away with the 4 points, get­ting up by one goal at the final whis­tle to win 41 to 40.

It was a hard fought bat­tle but silly mis­takes nearly cost us the game. We need to work on min­imis­ing er­rors and re­main­ing steady and con­sis­tent for all four quar­ters.

Award Han­nah win­ners:

Tay­lor (strufex) and Karen Donkin (Jewell Fam­ily Award). B grade: No Game. A grade: Well done A grade. A fan­tas­tic team ef­fort where we were able to show our ver­sa­til­ity as a side. Tight de­fence, great hands over the ball and strong re­bound­ing by our de­fend­ers Al­lie, Heidi and Mon al­lowed us to main­tain a steady lead through­out the game, and come away with a 72 to 43 point win.

The pres­sure placed on our op­po­nents by Di, Ricki and Rene´ e through­out the mid­court was also great to see.

Fan­tas­tic shoot­ing and po­si­tion­ing by our goalers Rhi­an­nan, Helene and Jess who worked beau­ti­fully no mat­ter what the com­bi­na­tion. Awards: Rhi­an­nan Maxwell; Rene´ e Stew­ard.
