and there was some out­stand­ing shoot­ing in the sec­ond half from Sade Kaipara-mor­ri­son at goal at­tack, par­tic­u­larly in the fi­nal quar­ter.

The other com­pet­i­tive game was that be­tween Verdettes Marist Old Girls and Fraser Tech Net­ball Club Pre­mier Re­serve who are show­ing real prom­ise.

Again this was close at the end of the first quar­ter with Old Girls hav­ing a three-goal lead which they able to im­prove on in the sec­ond quar­ter to in­crease their lead to six goals at half­time.

FTNC Pre­mier Re­serve showed they had come to play, win­ning the third quar­ter by a goal only to see Old Girls do a resur­gence in the fi­nal quar­ter to win 56 goals to 44.

Old Girls used this game to trial a num­ber of new com­bi­na­tions so did not get any real syn­er­gies and it was a hard grind ef­fort from the team.

For FTNC Pre­mier Re­serve they played a calm con­trolled game us­ing short front cut passes with ef­fect.

Player of the match was Jess Blake at wing at­tack for her ac­cu­rate passes and con­stant re­set­ting and work­ing her way around the cir­cle edge.

Waikato Dioce­san Open A again showed a lot of heart in their game against FTNC Pre­mier. FTNC Pre­mier had a very strong first and sec­ond quar­ter to lead at half time by 23 goals. The re­main­der of the game was close and highly com­pet­i­tive with FTNC Pre­mier only able to im­prove on their lead by four goals win­ning 68 goals to 43.

For FTNC Pre­mier they con­tin­ued to build on de­vel­op­ing con­nec­tions on court.

The stand­out for the game was Jade Whare­nate at wing at­tack who con­trolled the at­tack­ing end.

Laura Hutchin­son was solid at goal shoot shoot­ing ac­cu­rately and con­sis­tently.

For Dioce­san, the young de­vel­op­ment player Rhi­an­non Parry fill­ing in at goal keep hunted well and picked up a lot of ball.

Uni Pre­mier had an­other slick and pol­ished per­for­mance, this time against Not­ting­ham Cas­tle Rangers but the score did not re­flect the game over­all.

The first quar­ter went all Uni Pre­mier’s way and they were also dom­i­nant in the sec­ond quar­ter to have a com­pre­hen­sive 17-goal lead at half­time.

The third quar­ter was drawn which is a real credit to the Rangers team be­fore Uni Pre­mier came back with a vengeance in the fi­nal quar­ter. The full­time score was 80 goals to 44.

For Uni Pre­mier Rachel Fabling at goal de­fence and Han­nah Munn at goal keep were stand­outs and they got a lot of turnover ball for the at­tacks.

For Rangers the slow start cost them dearly. The half­time changes in­clud­ing Chanay Peri mov­ing from wing at­tack into wing de­fence and Rachael Parker com­ing on to court at wing at­tack were ef­fec­tive.

Peri was able to slow the Uni ball down de­fen­sively and showed great tim­ing in bring­ing the ball through court on at­tack.

The ex­pe­ri­ence was in­valu­able for the two young up and com­ing play­ers in the team.
