Avenel's A-grade netball side racks up 96 goals in one-sided contest.CHALPAT SONTI May 1, 2014 3:33am
It’s pretty hard to take much out of a thrashing as comprehensive as the one Avenel’s A-grade netball side handed out at Longwood on Saturday, but coach Anita Lynch was happy to find lots of positives heading into tougher tests ahead.
The Swans won by an almost-unbelievable 96-6, in a game that was as one-sided as the score suggested.
With Nikki Lord, Sarah D’Orria and Joss Roche dominating the scoring and Sarah Milne, Jacinta Jamison and Kasey Szydlowski doing the same at the other end with Kelly Smith putting on a best-on-court display between them, it almost seemed like a training run as Avenel went to third on the KDNL table.
But Lynch was pleased with the intensity.
‘‘The girls played pretty good netball,’’ she said.
‘‘Everyone really stepped up their intensity really well and they did some sensational things. After our first game (against Stanhope) we wanted to put a stamp on things and it puts us (third) which is good.’’
The Swans now face a tricky opponent at home in Murchison before what shapes as a great derby tussle at Nagambie.
‘‘(Murchison) are always a tough side and and always competitive,’’ Lynch said.
‘‘Hopefully we can maintain all our skills from Saturday.
‘‘We worked on defence, clearing out and driving and it really paid off.’’
B-grade scored a 49-14 win to maintain its unbeaten start to the season. It is second on the ladder.
C-grade is also second after a 70-9 win.
