Two dominant sides in Fast5 netball

The new Fast5 Mixed Netball competition recently got underway at the refurbished Ward Oval courts and, after two rounds, Norfolk and Chance and I Dunno are looking to be the dominant sides of the competition.

Norfolk and Chance and I Dunno both have the same for and against ratio of +36 after  recording two high scoring rounds.

In Round 1, Norfolk and Chance beat Ravens 32-19 while in last Friday night’s game against Rusty Diamonds, they finished with a comprehensive 45-22 win.

I Dunno beat Ball Steelers 28-14 in the opening round and then took down Ravens 39-17 in Round 2.

All Class has also recorded two from two wins, in two very close games.

All Class won their Round 1 encounter with Rusty Diamonds by just two points, 26-24 and held out in Round 2 for a one goal win over Mambo #5.

The new Fast5 competition is played in 10 minute quarters, and differs from the standard netball game with teams having five players each (no wings) at any time on the court.

Rolling subs are another differing feature of the Fast5 game.

The Cobar Netball Association is thrilled with the response for registrations for the Fast5 2019 season with 101 members currently registered.

Of the 101, 57 are female and 44 are male.

There’s also 12 juniors playing this season and the club was pleased that the registration numbers included 17 new females who have not previously been registered with the association this season.
