Com­pe­ti­tion re­mains tight

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY DAVID BERRY

Vol­ley­ball Horsham Mon­day night com­pe­ti­tion for C Grade and ju­niors has pro­duced tight re­sults in the first four weeks.

In C Grade, Horsham Col­lege Thunder girls have hit the ground run­ning, win­ning their first three games.

The girls are well led by Pas­call Pat­ter­son and Alisha Matheson and have based their game around solid de­fence and con­sis­tent pass­ing, which has en­abled them to move to the top of the lad­der.

Hot on their heels are the Slutheran team. The com­bined St Brigid’s and Lutheran team has a good blend of ex­pe­ri­ence with Matt Mclough­lin and Kings­ley Dal­gleish com­ple­ment­ing the work of Els­beth Zeegers and Tamikah Bur­dett.

The young Von Steiger Boomers are com­ing to­gether nicely with Ruben Ferguson and Mitch War­rick lead­ing the way.

Peren­nial fa­vorites Mur­toa Rail­way are mak­ing it hard for the younger teams with War­ren Young show­ing his ex­pe­ri­ence cou­pled with Bill Lind­say.

Round­ing out the top six are St Brigid’s Col­lege Rap­tors, who have

won their past two games with Caitlin Hobbs and Jess Whit­worth play­ing well, while the smoky in this grade – Von Steiger Gang­sters – are start­ing to hit their straps with Rhyce Al­lan and Mikey Collins-clarke show­ing form.

In the ju­niors, Mur­toa Gods have jumped to the top of the lad­der with con­sis­tent play from Ella Van Duren and Mil­lie Fa­gan.

They lead two Lutheran teams, Raiders Gold and Raiders Black, which are get­ting bet­ter each week.

The Gold team has Lily Snow­den and Olivia Heard play­ing well, while the Black team is build­ing nicely un­der Harry Robertson and Kaden Lanyon.

The Phan­toms and Mur­toa Geckos round out the top six.

The Phan­toms are well served by the four Young brothers and their cousins Noah and El­lie Treloar, while the Geckos have Archie Gaw­ith and Rhys Hem­ley play­ing good vol­ley­ball.

There is still op­por­tu­nity for boys and girls in­ter­ested in play­ing to get on board in the Mon­day night ju­nior com­pe­ti­tion. There are some teams look­ing for play­ers.
