Deni Rams 52 def Tungamah 29 Coming into this game and having a few players out the Bears knew that it would be tough challenge against the Rams.
The first half saw plenty of backup, defensive pressure and taps. The Bears continue to apply what has been worked on at training and it shows through the game; the Bears backed themselves and created space for leads.
Dan and Liv wisely fed into the space that was a result of the teamwork and the moving of Chelsea and Kim. Maddie, Mackenzy, Abbey and Molly S all applied consistent pressure ensuring their hands were right over the ball.
While the end result showed a 23 goal loss considering the Bears were down by 3 at half time it demonstrated that Tungamah need to continue to have consistent timing and work on full court play. Thanks to Maddie and Mackenzy for stepping up and assisting.

B grade took on the second top side Deniliquin in what was a cold windy and wet day.
The Bears had a slow start finding it hard to get into the goal ring and convert goals in the windy conditions.
The defence was strong and worked hard all game getting quite a few interceptions and lots of rebounds.
The girls worked hard all game and with a few girls away were able to give 4 of the u17’s girls a run who all stepped up and played well.

Off to Deni the windy city this week. First quarter the Bears were too keen for the after party and needed to switch on.
Passes were very unpredictable with the wind. Second quarter Tungamah had the better shooting end and came back to only 7 down which was very exciting.

The game was fast and moved cross ways down court to the shooters where the goal circle was utilised with the aid of mid court. Opportunities were taken and space was created with great attacking and driving forward.
Defence played a key role blocking offensive play and the ball when rebounded by them quickly moved back into play through the thirds.
The shooters were able to capitalise with the goals going in. With near on level scores throughout each quarter, both teams were playing well. The fourth quarter dropped off early with some missed opportunities at goal and the Bears passing missing their intended mark. Deni crept slowly away and it looked like they may have ran away with the game.
But to the girls credit they weren’t done yet. Their passing improved, and the goals went in. At final whistle they went down by three. Well done girls, a great game in tough conditions.

Cold, wet and really windy again this week. The girls enjoyed alternating between a position they are strong in and one they don’t get to play very often. The Deni girls were really quick and combined with the wind causing lots of turn overs, the Tungamah girls were very weary by the final siren.
The girls tried really hard but unfortunately went down by 1 goal. Well done under 11’s another great game to watch.
Sadly next week will be the last game for the season at home vs Finley.
