C-res keep Cats’ flag flying


Finley’s C-reserve side will go into the grand final this weekend as Finley’s only hope of winning a premiershi­p.

The side were granted a grand final performanc­e based on their win against Moama in the first semi-final on September 3.

It was a narrow defeat, with Finley’s 43 just beating Moama’s 39.

In the grand final, the Cats will come up against Rumbalara and it is expected to be a tight contest.

When the two sides first met this season, in round eight, Rumba only just took the win with 45-41.

When they met again in round 13 the pressure was elevated, ending in a 51-all draw.

Player profiles:

Paula Gowans GS/ GA: Impossible to defend, extremely accurate and strong rebounding prove her to be unstoppabl­e in attack.

Karen Donkin GA/GS: Freakishly young and yet has a wealth of playing experience and still going strong, long range shooting dynamo.

Kirsty Clarke WA: Strong feeder that has bamboozled her young opponents all year with her calculated decision making.

Peta Gowans C (captain and coach): The heart and soul of our team. Her leadership, communicat­ion and silky skills see her dominate any player.

Michelle Purtill WD/GK: Great defensive pressure in and out of the circle. First year at the club and has proven hard work and determinat­ion is the key to success.

Sasha Wood GD/GK: Tight and annoying defender, that will not let you get an easy pass or shot.

Bridget Tegart GK/GD: Dominant rebounder who uses her body well, protects the last line of defence strongly.

Paige Gray GD, WD, GA: An amazing young gun who can play anywhere on the court. Great reader of the player and intercepts anywhere on the court.
