There were two upsets recorded last week in the women’s B Grade netball competition with Here For Beer winning over competition leaders Hot Shots 29-24.
Amy Stephens played her normal strong defensive game making Gabbi Lennon work for each goal. Chelsea Moeris and Prue Chambers collected best and fairest points.
Third placed Mystics had a convincing 58-48 win over All Sorts. Mystics will be the team to watch with captain Mandy Hewlett looking to lead her side into the final series with impressive for and against stats.
OMG had a huge win over The Knights with OMG’s defender Celeste Collins a standout.
Collins is certainly a contender for B Grade best and fairest honours this year with her accuracy in the goal circle and defence.
In A Grade SPARKS pushed Divas at every quarter with Divas claiming a 50-42 win. Divas relied on shooter Corinne McLeod’s accuracy for the win. Teammates Corrina Brenton and Marybeth Baker in defence worked overtime in the circle but SPARKS’ Stephanie Baker was on fire all game scoring the majority of the SPARKS’ goals.
The 15s team recorded a solid win over the Sharpe Shooters 46-22. This will give the 15s confidence leading into the State Championships in a fortnight. Kristin Camery was Sharpe Shooters’ best on court while Jasey Bruce had her best game of the season moving well within the circle. Hannah Carroll received some great lobs from Amber Byrne.
Pumpettes were outstanding against the Opens team. Behind in the final quarter, best on court, Renee Matheson, worked overtime to put the Pumpettes in the lead until the final seconds of the game when Zoë Harland scored to level the game 31-all.
Pumpettes’ Ellie Russell and Opens’ Alexandra Hernando also featured in best and fairest points.—contributed
