It was a tough day on the netball court for our Skipton girls when we took on Springbank at home last Saturday.
13b Our youngest girls remain undefeated as our under 13b girls again put their best foot forward to take a big win 17 to 3. Great team play with tight pressure on the opposition and accurate shooting were highlights. Hannah meek and Lillian Barr received today's awards.
13a Springbank then seemed to grow significantly is size and stature as our under 13 a team came up against height in the goal ring. Tess Bingham and Destiny Frisby tried hard to receive the awards in the 20 to 32 goal loss.
15s The under 15 girls seemed to have it even harder and had trouble creating turnovers and holding onto their own centres was difficult due to Springbanks ability to intercept. In the end we went down 14 to 48 with Kate Gowans and Ceilidh Sheehan deserving the awards.
17s It was a little closer in the under 17 game with the scoreline 13 to 31 in a good game to watch. All girls were available this week and each played a role, giving their all in the fast paced game. Awards went to Josie Castles and Sophie Daniela.
Cgrade Erin Robertson was back again for the injury riddled c grade side this week and along with Ruby Bingham from the under 17s, took the awards in the 16 to 61 goal loss. Has been a tough year for consistency with c grade this year due to all the injuries and unfortunately this was evident against Springbanks class.
Bgrade again put it up to the opposition and until half time were in the thick of the action. Springbank then seemed to get their groove a little more settled and took the win 27 to 47. It was a good effort against the much higher placed team with some great efforts by all. Awards went to Hannah Smyth, Jaymee Crack and Amy Lodge.
Agrade Our a grade girls were going to be up against it taking on last years grand finalists. The polish of all Springbanks senior teams with fast, strong and long passes made for a tough match. We had some positive passages and great areas of play with 3 junior girls all taking to the court. The final score was 19 to 56 with awards to Ella McLean, Paige Follett and Annie Elliott.
This Saturday we have our last home game at the Emu Nest, make sure you call in to watch a game or catch up with everyone for a drink and dinner at the end of the day. Go Emus.
