Rennie 53 defeated Mathoura 35.
A perfect way to finish off 2018 with the girls playing a great team game.
Mya Bye played her best game of the season and with her strong leads, carefully thought out passes and tight defensive pressure.
Nat Harris dominated in the centre all day and quality decision making helped create beautiful passages of play.
Brylee McCarty played another strong game in GA dominating the ring and her goals were on fire. Catherine Shaw stepped up in WD and applied superior pressure leading in many turn overs.
A huge thank you to all the girls this year who have been part of the ever changing, ever growing A grade.
Another year of developing juniors and learning on the court.
The coaches are proud of how you’ve learnt and grown and again, missing out on finals by percentage. Looking forward to seeing you all on the court next year and best of luck to the A grade girls who start their U17s finals run.

Rennie 27 defeated by Mathoura 39.
First of all, what a great game you all played today, you all tried your hardest by putting your bodies on the line with just seven players for the day (thanks to Jaz for sitting on the bench).
As the last game for C Grade drew closer Rennie knew they were to play 2nd on ladder and were prepared to give it their best and have some fun.
But boy did the Hoppers take it to them only losing by eight goals in the end.
Tremendous running all game by Kacey, she never fails to give 100% and Steph in defense gave a solid game with her amazing three feet.
After Tegan left a hole in the concrete following a spectacular tumble, the game was coming to an end with the rest of the season following.
What an amazing bunch of ladies the Hoppers have had all year.
Congratulations C Grade on courageous season after many injuries and interruptions.

Rennie 18 defeated by Mathoura 45.
In less than ideal netball conditions, the girls came out with some confidence with many turnovers created although some poor passes enabled Mathoura to come up with the goods.
Zoe shared the goal circle with Alainah and Jasmine which was much more open with movement this week.
Maddie had a good run in WA with some great feeds and positioning on the ring.
M and M tried their hearts out again this week with more accurate shooting and were determined to keep positive.
Shani was able to draw some contacts, which created some turnovers.
The girls now look forward to finals with a meeting with Blighty who they were able to win against in trying conditions.
With positivity, teamwork and encouragement who knows how far they will go in finals.

Rennie 62 defeated Mathoura 30.
Stepping on to the court one last time before finals had the Rennie 17s fired up against Mathoura.
Although it was a slow and quiet start against the Timbercutters, the girls maintained a strong lead ahead.
It was in the third quarter that the girls started using their voice and proved how they work as a team.
Strong drives and excellent pressure, set up for some amazing passages of play.
The Hoppers need to continue to work hard coming into finals as they face up against stronger teams.

Great game girls to come into finals with a very convincing win.

What an awesome game to end the home and away season. Another win to call the Hoppers.
