Under-strength Avenel flexes its A-grade netball muscle in defeating Lancaster.CHALPAT SONTI June 26, 2014 3:11am
If the rest of the KDNL competition didn’t know Avenel was serious, they do now after the Swans dominated top-of-the-table Lancaster to win their A-grade netball clash 50-41 on Saturday.
Despite missing two key players in Joss Roche and Jacinta Jamison, Avenel held its own in an even first quarter then took control of the game in the second and third terms to win each of them 14-6.
The Swans then withstood an expected final quarter comeback from the Wombats to triumph by nine goals.
Avenel’s win was built on cutting out the errors in its game and capitalising on the ones Lancaster made.
‘‘That was the key to it,’’ coach Anita Lynch said.
