Southern Riverina news - - SPORT -

Jer­ilderie’s se­nior net­ball teams strug­gled against Strath­mer­ton on Satur­day.

The A grade Demons played a strong game from one end of the court to the other this week, but just could not get ahead, go­ing down 62 to 42.

The de­fen­sive end worked well against tall shoot­ers but couldn’t con­tain the Dogs.

Wun­na­murra best on court went to Kiara Keating, play­ing a strong game that is repli­cated ev­ery week.

SD Land­scap­ing award went to Tanya Ro­rato for her great mov­ing through the at­tack­ing end and ac­cu­rate shoot­ing.

Colony Inn award went to Elise Wat­son play­ing an­other great game and ap­ply­ing pres­sure through the whole game, and Jer­ilderie Sports Club award went to Kendall Pur­cell for a strong game in goal de­fence.

The Jer­ilderie Ho­tel award went to Rhi­an­non Roe, who is go­ing from strength to strength ev­ery week.

De­spite their best ef­forts, Jer­ilderie’s B grade also fell to a strong Strath­mer­ton side, 64 to 39.

The Dees played rel­a­tively con­sis­tently, at­tempt­ing to read the play to con­vert the turnovers.

Slight changes in the cen­tre court chal­lenged Jer­ilderie’s play­ers to change their think­ing how­ever the moves proved suc­cess­ful.

Awards went to Brooke Mitchell (Bon­shaw), Issy Catena (Bar­low Ag), Mil­lie Ston­nill (Colony Inn), Heidi Bryce (Jer­ilderie Sports Club) and Sara Smith (Jer­ilderie Ho­tel).

It was an un­for­tu­nate loss for C grade, go­ing down by five goals, 39 to 34.

The Dees got off to a great start in the first quar­ter, mov­ing the ball well through the mid court and into the goal ring.

But a change to Strathy’s de­fence in the sec­ond quar­ter proved ef­fec­tive at shut­ting down the Demons’ goal cir­cle and mak­ing it hard to get the ball in to the shoot­ers.

Tanya Love­hill and Ca­rina Ro­rato com­bined well in the de­fen­sive end and did their best to keep Jer­ilderie in the game.

Awards went to Ca­rina Ro­rato (Law­ton Ag Spray­ing), Love­hill (JNC Award), Jess Wilson (Colony Inn) and Loretta Walker (Jer­ilderie Sports Club).

The Un­der 17s had a slow start but found their feet in the sec­ond half to run away with a 42 to 39 win.

The fi­nal quar­ter showed the girls’ true strength and team val­ues.

Law­ton Earth­works best on court went to Olivia Mauger, show­ing great self­de­ter­mi­na­tion and per­sis­tence in her game.

Phoebe Aitken took the Magic Scis­sors award, not only play­ing a strong game, but sup­port­ing the team through­out the match.

Colony Inn award went to Skye Nash, who played a game that took pa­tience, per­sis­tence and skill.

Jer­ilderie’s U13s started strong from the first whis­tle in their 28 to 14 win over Strath­mer­ton.

The Demons found space in the mid-court through Lucy, Mia and Har­mony, and passes into So­phie were spot on. Brigit’s con­fi­dence to take the long shot was fan­tas­tic to see.

De­fence was solid all across the court with all the girls do­ing their best to stay in front of their play­ers which forced many turnovers.

Awards went to Brigit Hamil­ton (Pine Rise Pumps), Emma Hamil­ton (Colony Inn) and Tamzin Bell (Jer­ilderie Newsagency).

A fairly even game be­tween Strathy and Jer­ilderie in the U-11s on Satur­day.

Pass­ing choices of­ten led to turnovers but the girls worked hard to try and win the ball back.

At­tack was tremen­dous by the Demons with all the girls try­ing hard to get in front of their play­ers and run­ning into open space.

Awards went to Ge­or­gia Belling (MAKATAK), Abbey A’Vard (Colony Inn), and Mi­ley Conn (Jer­ilderie Bak­ery).

Jer­ilderie de­fender Alex Patu puts pres­sure on her op­po­nent in the Un­der 13s.
