Avenel's A-grade netball side keeps on winning.CHALPAT SONTI July 3, 2014 3:34am
Deanne Thompson reaches highest in the A-grade game as teammates Kelly Smith (back to camera) and Sarah Milne watch on.
The secret seems to have got out to the rest of the KDNL now — Avenel’s A-grade netball side is a serious contender.
Locally, the Swans have expected to be vying for a flag since before the season began, and they took another step on the road with a 40-31 defeat of Merrigum in wet conditions on Saturday.
Despite the weather, Avenel surprised themselves with the relative ease of the win, getting out to a big lead early and overcoming some familiar final-quarter stutters.
Coming after the defeat of Lancaster, it was another victory started in defence, where Sarah Milne continued her outstanding season backed by Dee Thompson.
‘‘They were just awesome,’’ coach Anita Lynch said.
