Lakers easily dispose of Ardmona.CHALPAT SONTI July 3, 2014 3:09am
This season hasn’t been smooth sailing for Nagambie’s A-grade netball side, but in poor conditions plenty went right on Saturday.
The Lakers travelled to Ardmona and ended up surprisingly easy 41-8 winners on a very cold day.
Player-coach Caitlyn McPhee had little doubt where the game was won.
‘‘All over the court,’’ she said.
‘‘We seemed to be able to create space, defensively we got our fingers to things, and then chased it up. We just really wanted to win and everything seemed to work.’’
Having a reasonably settled combination was also a bonus for what has been a very unsettled side this year, as injuries played havoc.
Kallyn Gent moved in to goal defence, allowing Bianca Deane slightly further out on the court and McPhee stayed at goal keeper this week. Midcourters Katie Sullivan and Sarah Shiels also fed shooters Clancey Loughnane and Chanelle Paulke well.
Nagambie takes on Girgarre this week and while it might normally not be a danger game, the Roos will know McPhee’s game well. The coach went to high school with her and it won’t be an easy battle.
It was tougher going in the other grades for the Lakers with B-grade losing 55-20 and C-grade going down 47-31.
However, the under-17 side keeps winning, getting up 47-26, while the under-15s had the week off.
