In the Netball our U13 side were defeated 26-33, best were Amity Blair & Charlotte Di Torp. The U15 side won 32 to 26 best were Heidi Gaudion & Milan Maaka. The U17’s lost 35-40 best were Darcy Guttridge & Chelsea Livingstone. In the senior netball C grade won 44-39 best were Casey Campbell & Rachel Drenen. B grade won 53-40 best were Jaimee Sallee & Kasey Guttridge. A grade lost 39-46, best were Chloe McDonald & Daisy Hill.
Our under 16’s were coming off 2 disappointing losses and they had planned an early breakfast prior to the game for a bit of team bonding. They had a really good start to the game despite Drouin getting plenty of numbers back to clog up our forward line. The game continued in the same manner for the rest of the game and for the first 3 quarters we struggled to get around the numbers in our forward line. Some bad kicking was keeping the margin down but in the last term the players took on the directions from the coaches and transferred play quickly across ground and lowered their eyes instead of just kicking long into the forward line. In the end it was a good win by 109 points despite the bad kicking for goal. Best for Traralgon were Jordan Jobling, Harvey Neocleous and Ben Cheetham with Vanni slotting 4 goals.
The under 18’s played some great footy from the first bounce until the final siren with the midfield dominating and the half backline repelling any attacks. The forward line had plenty of goal kickers with 10 players hitting the scoreboard and they ran out big winners by 151. Best were Hayden Willaton who kicked 3, Luke Di Ciero who kicked 6 & Lachy McDonald who played his best game for the year.
The reserves played some really good footy despite several changes this week. They got off to a good start and held a 17 point lead. The second term saw Traralgon dominate with the midfield getting plenty of ball forward and at halftime it was a 46 point lead. The second half was a bit more even but Traralgon ran out good winners by 73 points in one of their best games for the year. Best players were Luke Phillips, Brayden Duve and Bobby Marshall. Leading goal kickers were Daniel (Fonz) Loprese, Bobby Marshall and Riley Loprese with 3 each.
Our senior side were without coach Mark Collison who was away representing Vic Country, well done Collo. We also had 2 first gamers with Tyler Mustoe and Dean Pearce playing their first senior games after some great form in the reserves. In the first term we got off to a good start with the midfield working well it was Traralgon by 24 points. The next 2 quarters saw the Traralgon backline totally shut down Drouin’s forward line who scored 3 points in 2 quarters. With the midfield also dominating the forward line was getting plenty of supply with Lee Stockdale once again looking very dangerous up forward and at the last change it was Traralgon with a commanding lead of 95 points. The last quarter saw Traralgon drop away a little and Drouin won the quarter but it was a great win for Traralgon by 91 points. Best players were Mitchell Mustoe, Corey Stockdale and Dean Pearce. Lee Stockdale kicked 6 goals with Michael Burge and Dylan Loprese kicking 3 each.
