Glorious sunshine greeted everyone at Monash Park on Saturday for our clash against Mathoura.
The overnight frost had left an ice rink on the under 11s court so they changed courts and played another enjoyable game.
Playing predominantly net-set-go girls, our team were out matched by the older Mathoura team.
JNC award went to Sophie Roe and the MAKATAK award went to Jade Baldwin.
Our under 13s girls had an easy win 27 to 3. Mathoura couldn’t get the ball past our tall Barlow combination in Annalise and Julia. Annalise Barlow and Paige Nash won the Magic Scissors award and Isabella Catena won the Jerilderie Newsagent award.
No game for the under 15s with Mathoura unable to field a side.
The under 17s came out firing in the first quarter taking a three goal lead, however lack of concentration for parts of each 2nd and 3rd quarter let Mathoura hold a one goal lead going into the last quarter. The Conn Plumbing award went to Deeanna Bell and the JNC socks went to Sally Sweeney.
C reserve also took home the four points with a 41 to 26 win. The Demons were three goals up at half time, but again they kicked into gear and shot 24 goals to 12 in the last half. SD Landscaping award went to shooter Rhiannon Roe and the JNC Award went to keeper Carmen Lawton.
C grade came up against an experienced opposition and came second 25 to 50. Tanya Bradford won the IGA award and Lauren Irvin won the SD Landscaping award for their excellent defence in very trying conditions.
B grade had a must-win game to keep their finals hopes alive, which they did with a 42 to 30 victory. Sarah Crain played a blinder at WD to win the Rodwells BOC and Tia Williams also ran hard at C to win the JNC Wine.
A grade went into the game without four regular players, but Sammi Conn, Tia Williams, Deeanna Bell, Carina Rorato and Elise Watson stepped up and showed what they are capable of. Wunnamurra BOC went to Deeanna Bell and the JNC Award went to Sammi Conn.
Next week we go to Yarroweyah.
