Southern Riverina news - - Sports -

Ber­ri­gan hosted Deni Rovers on Satur­day in what turned out to be a win­less day for the Saints.

C grade: Ber­ri­gan 39 lost to Deni Rovers 40. Awards: Si­mone Fox, Kirsty Wil­lis and Rachael Hamil­ton.

All our girls de­fended well to­day.

Our fourth quar­ter was fan­tas­tic re­sult­ing in a 4-goal turn­around.

Af­ter a nail bit­ing last quar­ter we ended up go­ing down by 1 goal in the end.

It was dis­ap­point­ing, how­ever it goes to show that we are a team get­ting bet­ter. Well done girls, a great team ef­fort.

Un­der 17: Ber­ri­gan 19 lost to Deni Rovers 32. Awards: Kayleigh Nolen, Kris­ten Holmes, Maddy Haintz.

Slow start girls, how­ever in the sec­ond half you stepped up and showed ev­ery­one what we are made of. Let’s do it again this week.

Un­der 15: Ber­ri­gan 7 lost to Deni Rovers 35. Awards: Ella Fox, El­lie Hea­zle­wood, Tamara Podesta.

Good game Great shoot­ing girls.

by Deni. Fan­tas­tic game - we kept up with a very tall team. Need to work on third quar­ter.

Un­der 13: Ber­ri­gan 14 lost to Deni Rovers 25. Awards: Leah Dal­gliesh, Ally Barry, Kaila Lus­combe.

The girls played a strong first half and were only down by 1 goal at half time. Un­for­tu­nately nerves got the bet­ter of us in the sec­ond half and we went down.

B grade: Ber­ri­gan 27 lost to Deni Rovers 37.

We wel­comed for her first game this sea­son B grade coach Bec Ware and sadly said farewell to con­sis­tent and re­li­able de­fender Cather­ine Mcna­mara for her last game due to an un­sus­tain­able foot in­jury.

It was a highly com­pet­i­tive match as an­tic­i­pated. Ber­ri­gan wasted scor­ing ad­van­tages in the first.

Deni, how­ever, con­verted early on giv­ing them a 7-goal lead at the end of the first.

The Rovers con­tin­ued this into the sec­ond term as the Ber­ri­gan goalies des­per­ately tried to find form.

Han­nah Ni­chols and Ar­lena Pyle were con­sis­tent and as tough as ever through the mid­court, with strong sup­port from Rach Head and Cath Mcna­mara in the de­fen­sive cir­cle.

But it was in the third quar­ter where Bec Ware and Maddy Loats be­gan to find their form, with Te­gan Nolen pass­ing in and around the ring.

Ber­ri­gan outscored the Rovers in the final two quar­ters, un­for­tu­nately the dam­age had been done in the first half.

Sis­ters Cather­ine and Loretta Mcna­mara played out a stel­lar final quar­ter in GK and GD re­spec­tively in a last sign-off for Cather­ine.

We’ll def­i­nitely miss Cath’s skills on the court but know she will still be a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence from the side­line di­rect­ing and guid­ing girls in the com­ing games for the sea­son!

Healy En­gi­neer­ing $20 - Cather­ine Mcna­mara, Foxy’s Back­hoe $10 - Ar­lena Pyle, Club Tea - Maddy Loats.

A grade: Ber­ri­gan 28 lost to Deni Rovers 69.
