Round 2 v. Gordon FNC - pre-match
With the season opener now behind us, it’s full steam ahead and we venture down the Western Freeway to take on the Gordon FNC.
We were blessed with a ripping day to kick of the season last week and our ground was turned out in magnificent order to get proceedings under way.
In terms of on field & court action , we held our own on court , taking a clean sweep of the junior contests and certainly being very competitive in the A & C Grade games , against the traditionally strong Waubra senior netball group.
The netballing awards for week 1 were Renae Loader & Ruby Gibson in the under 13’s 23-5 win, Laura Gibson & Georgia Smith who were instrumental in the under 15’s 37-10 victory, Eve Sagnol & Sammy Crebbin for their efforts in helping the under 17’s to a 39-11 scoreline. In the senior grades , Maddie Gay & Michelle Ladiges were the winners in the C Grade going down 31-42 , despite being outplayed the B Grade awards went to Aimee O’Brien & Megan Granger , while in the A Grade , it was a case of both youth and experience with Dakota Grenfell & evergreen Tracey Dawson the winners in a game where they pushed the visitors all the way before going down 38-46.
On the field , after a very challenging off season and with numbers tight in a number of grades , there was some really positive signs , even though our u/15 were the only winners on the day. New senior coach Glenn Treacy unveiled a very young team , which competed very well for long periods of the game , but were punished by a perennially strong opponent when the ball was turned over. Brad McDonald picked up where he left off from last year with a dominant 4 goal game and it was great to see the Dummett boys back in the red , white and black and Chases running goal from the middle typified his class. It was a credit to Laan and Buddsy to get a seconds team together for round 1 and it was always going to be a tough assignment against last yrs runners up. Laan lead from the front together with Whitey & Jimmy Richardson and they will certainly be more competitive as the team plays more together.
A real battle for numbers in our u/18 grade and a big thanks to Waubra for lending a few players to ensure a game went ahead and also to 7 of our u/15 lads for doubling up on the day. Despite a predictable heavy loss , new captain Jake Dawson was outstanding. The under 15’s were a shining light with a dominant display in which skipper Dean O’B , Brodie Lewis and the Hayles brothers were among the better players. Ian’s u/12’s are also a little light on numbers at present having lost a swag of players to the u/15’s this year but despite this they were once again very lively and competed very well , going down by 3 goals.
Don’t forget this Saturday everyone is invited back to the Millers Arms Hotel for our daily awards and a Pizza tea. GO SAINTS !!!!!!
