Net­ballers primed for suc­cess

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

The 2018 Mur­ray Foot­ball Net­ball Sea­son has been a suc­cess­ful one for the Mul­wala Lions net­ball with four of their eight sides mak­ing the fi­nals.

A grade, 15 and un­der, 13 and un­der and 11 and un­der missed out on a fi­nals berth this year, with this sea­son being one of con­sol­i­da­tion for all sides. B-Grade

The B-Grade had a slow start to the year due to in­juries but man­aged to end the home and away sea­son in fifth po­si­tion on the lad­der. Now the girls are ready to play fi­nals and are set to face eighth placed Shep­par­ton East on the week­end. This side have worked hard all sea­son to trans­form into a de­ter­mined and tal­ented young side, who give it their all and play an ex­cit­ing brand of net­ball. From fifth po­si­tion they have the po­ten­tial to go all the way this year. C-Grade

The C Grade girls are go­ing into the fi­nals with good form. Fin­ish­ing with nine wins and end­ing the sea­son in fifth po­si­tion, this week the girls come up against De­niliquin which will be a hard fought game. Last time the two teams met the Lions came away with a handy five goal win, a con­fi­dence booster go­ing into this weeks elim­i­na­tion fi­nal at Nathalia. C-Re­serve

The C Re­serve girls are su­per ex­cited af­ter fin­ish­ing fourth on the lad­der, se­cur­ing a dou­ble chance. They head to De­niliquin this Satur­day to take on top of the lad­der team Echuca. Last time the team met Mul­wala were de­feated by just 3 goals. Led by cap­tain Maddi Cook­sey these girls are a very ver­sa­tile team with plenty of drive to suc­ceed. Un­der 17s

The Un­der 17s just scraped into fi­nals fin­ish­ing the home and away sea­son in eighth po­si­tion and se­cur­ing an elim­i­na­tion show­down with Katan­dra this Sun­day at Nathalia. Af­ter fac­ing the Cats in the last game of the home and away sea­son and go­ing down, the Lions are look­ing to even the ledger. Their ver­sa­til­ity across all po­si­tions will hold them in good stead as they un­leash their po­ten­tial with the de­ter­mi­na­tion to knock off any team they come across. Af­ter just mak­ing the fi­nals these girls are hun­gry for suc­cess and will be look­ing to get a win against Katan­dra to kick start their fi­nals cam­paign.
