Nagambie strolls to easy victory

It might have been little more than a training run but there were plenty of positives for Nagambie’s A-grade netball side in its win at Longwood on Saturday.

The Lakers won comfortably, as the 67-13 margin suggests, with the attack end starring.

Chanelle Paulke was best on court at goal attack, with fellow shooter Clancey Loughnane and feeders Katie Sullivan and Sarah Shiels also standing out. The win was a confidence-booster for the side ahead of the clash with Murchison after the interleague bye.

‘‘We were able to focus on some of the things we were working on at training,’’ player-coach Caitlyn McPhee said.

‘‘Longwood were a nice bunch of girls and really tried hard but we were just too strong.’’

The only concerns were a finger injury to defender Kallyn Gent and a slacking off in the final quarter, which McPhee put down to a lack of concentration.

‘‘There were a few sloppy passes and mistakes that shouldn’t have been made. We’re trying to wipe out those errors.’’

Nagambie will get a chance to work on those during the bye week, ahead of the Grasshoppers clash.


As expected, the Lakers made a clean sweep of the two other netball games. B-grade won 47-22 and C-grade 50-17.

The age group sides had the day off, because Longwood does not have teams in those grades.
