Blighty netball:

Southern Riverina news - - LOCALCLASSIES -

Blighty hosted Tocumwal on Satur­day in Pi­cola League.

A Grade were not able to ap­ply enough pres­sure to their op­po­nents or cre­ate enough move­ment or drive for the full four quar­ters.

Toc’s shoot­ers were ex­cep­tional while Blighty’s ac­cu­racy let them down.

Tocumwal were a well pol­ished team and will be a force to be reck­oned with in the fi­nals.

The Redeyes will need to lift greatly over the next few weeks com­ing into fi­nals if they are go­ing to try to match this Tocumwal side. Fi­nal score, Blighty 33 to Tocumwal 54. Awards: Nat O’Shan­nessy and Demi Blake.

The B Grade game was a lit­tle bit un­or­gan­ised and flat by both teams.

Both teams had very good pas­sages of play but not of­ten enough to make a great game of it.

Blighty tried var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions but couldn’t get any of them to flow.

Charlea Blake and Claire Bull were stand­outs with the very ver­sa­tile Amy Litch­field back­ing then up all the way.

Tocumwal proved too strong in the end win­ning by five goals. Fi­nal score, Blighty 35 to Tocumwal 40. Awards: Charlea Blake and Amy Litch­field.

All the C Grade girls put in a strong ef­fort against Tocumwal.

Dif­fer­ent com­bi­na­tions showed some good pieces of play but not con­sis­tent enough to take the win. Fi­nal score, Blighty 33 to Tocumwal 41. Awards: Talei Holm, Katie Bar­ling and Stephanie Barry.

C-Res had a very strong win, with the team work of Lisa Landy and Nicky Burke a high­light.

The girls had a bit of a shaky start but set­tled into a com­fort­able win. Fi­nal score, Blighty 42 to Tocumwal 12. Awards: Nicky Burke, Saryn McKen­zie, Emma Wareny­cia and Kendl Cramer.

The U17s worked well as a team with good move­ment through­out the court.

The girls still need to im­prove on com­ing for­ward how­ever there was good en­cour­age­ment from all play­ers. Fi­nal score, Blighty 36 to Tocumwal 55. Awards: Tiah McDon­ald, Shan­non Vesty and Abbey Smith.

The U15s had some re­ally good team­work down the court, with strong talk­ing and en­cour­age­ment.

They played a very strong Tocumwal side even­tu­ally go­ing down by 31 goals. Fi­nal score, Blighty 6 to Tocumwal 37. Awards: Kelsey Hil­sop, Mikayla Ack­ers, Kaitlin Percy and Elissa Gallpen.

The U13s had a great win with an ex­cel­lent team ef­fort. Fi­nal score, Blighty 18 to Tocumwal 14. Awards: Zara Mac­Don­ald, El­iza Brad­ford and Karla Ni­cholas.

Once again the Blighty Minis all played one of their best games for the year.

Awards: Melina Tid­combe, Har­monie Tid­combe, Erica Ni­cholls and Jaz McKen­zie.

The Fin­ley Bak­ery and Patis­serie Club Per­son of the week is Tess Plat­t­fuss.

Also thank you to this week’s spon­sor In­ter­sport Ben­netts De­niliquin for do­nat­ing net­balls to our ju­nior girls.
