Strath­mer­ton 21 lt De­niliquin 39

It was a bit­ter end to such a sweet sea­son for the Bull­dogs. Af­ter go­ing down to Deni last week­end the girls weren’t dis­ap­pointed in their per­for­mance but they would have liked a shot at a top­four team.

A crack­ing game of net­ball saw Strath­mer­ton play four con­sis­tent quar­ters to get through to a home pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal. Things were tight all game but, hav­ing learnt from last week, Strath­mer­ton was able to steady, push­ing out its lead ev­ery quar­ter. As the un­der­dogs com­ing from sixth, the Bull­dogs have noth­ing to lose and every­thing to gain and they’re play­ing that way.


Strath­mer­ton 26 lt Katunga 37

Go­ing up against Katunga was al­ways go­ing to be tough, but Strath­mer­ton stuck with it un­til half-time. Strath­mer­ton did well to come from eighth con­sid­er­ing the amount of in­juries through the year, and to get to the sec­ond fi­nal was an achieve­ment.

Strath­mer­ton’s fi­nals run came to an end against fourth-placed Katunga. The sides were neck and neck in the first half, but missed goals and some poor passes re­sulted in Katunga cap­i­tal­is­ing on turnovers.

Strath­mer­ton came out fir­ing from the start and never looked back. The goalers shot well, the mid­court drove hard and the de­fence was solid.

Strath­mer­ton’s fi­nals cam­paign ended in ex­tra time af­ter scores were level at the fi­nal whis­tle. While it was a strong game, the Bull­dogs couldn’t hold on.
