Dees on fire

Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Jer­ilderie’s A-graders knew they were in with a chance against sec­ond-placed Tocumwal on Satur­day, and dis­ci­plined play saw the Dees lead at each change to win, 43-39.

Elise Wat­son was out­stand­ing at GD, deny­ing dan­ger Bloods goaler Leisa De­Sailly any chance of get­ting into the game.

Ains­ley Massina and Mea­gan Mauger con­trolled the ball com­ing out of de­fense and into at­tack, set­ting up Si­mone Conn at GS to shoot some qual­ity goal and man­ag­ing to find space when needed.

Awards: Wun­na­murra BOC - Mea­gan Mauger; Con­gram Trans­port - Si­mone Conn.

The B grade game was close through­out the en­tire match with the lead chang­ing a num­ber of times.

Ka­t­rina Muto was in great form, shoot­ing her­self 32 goals to win the Jer­ilderie IGA best-on­court award.

Tianni Given played con­sis­tently through the mid-court, never giv­ing up on a quick and light-footed op­po­nent, to take home the SD Land­scap­ing award.

B Grade had two ex­tra awards on Satur­day, go­ing to Laura Brown­ing and Liz Haynes, who filled in as GK. Each player made a def­i­nite im­pact on the game.

In the end, Jer­ilderie won 46-44.

Jer­ilderie’s C grade side is back on the win­ners’ list af­ter de­feat­ing Tocumwal by the nar­row­est of mar­gins, 32-31.

Both sides man­aged to con­trol the play for small pe­ri­ods in each quar­ter, but no-one dom­i­nated for a long length of time.

Tanya Love­hill and Tash Shaw com­bined well for their first pair­ing in goal­ing du­ties, with Shaw win­ning the IGA be­ston-court award.

A few mi­nor in­juries in the third quar­ter rat­tled the Demons for a short time, al­low­ing a small lead to be re­duced, but the girls dug deep and held off a de­ter­mined Tocumwal side to win the day.

Jaimi Mitchell won the Deni North Steel award.

Jer­ilderie’s C-Re­serve grade net­ballers de­feated Tocumwal in con­vinc­ing fash­ion, 37-19.

Great work in de­fence by Ca­rina Ro­rato made it hard for any­one to get a re-bound, while Sam McDon­ald was great in the cen­tre, get­ting mul­ti­ple in­ter­cepts and driv­ing strongly up and down the court.

Elisha Conn and Eden Her­cus were un­stop­pable in goals.

Ca­rina Ro­rato re­ceived the Sports Club award and Sam McDon­ald the Kat’s Fit­ness award.
