Nagambie comes from 11 goals down to deny Avenel a win in netball derby.CHALPAT SONTI May 14, 2014 3:32am
Avenel's Sarah D'Orria gets a rare opportunity to put up a shot for goal without Nagambie player-coach Caitlyn McPhee (background) towering over her.
Some jinxes just won’t go away and Avenel’s A-grade netball side found that out the hard way on Saturday.
The Swans let arch-rival Nagambie out of jail by handing them the keys to the cell in a game that ended in a 32-all draw.
It meant the Lakers maintained their dominance in recent years over the old enemy with an unbeaten streak about as long as the Nagambie senior football side.
But how it happened would have surprised even the home side. A more experienced Avenel overcame a sluggish start to slowly but surely assert some dominance on the game. Outstanding defence by Jacinta Jamison, Sarah Milne, Kasey Szydlowski and Paige Hockley set the Swans up the other end, where shooters Sarah D’Orria and Niki Lord were having a classic battle with Lakers’ player-coach Caitlyn McPhee.
And Avenel got 11 goals up at half-time, and headed into the final term ahead by eight. That’s when Nagambie rolled the dice.
