Avenel's age-group football and netball sides take on various opponents.July 30, 2014 3:09am
While the Avenel open-age football and netball sides had a bye on Saturday, there was no rest for the age-group teams.
The under-18 football side travelled to Murchison on Saturday to take on Stanhope.
The under-18 draw was redone earlier in the season and as a result the Swans played the Lions three times this year. And as with the first two games, the result was an easy win to Avenel.
The age-group netball sides had to play Violet Town at Longwood.
It was a mixed day, with the under-17 side winning easily 67-23, but the under-15 side lost 51-42.
The under-15 game was a high-scoring game, with none of the shooters missing many shots, which made it hard for the defenders.
Avenel knew it had to play well to match the Towners.
The first and third quarters were even but the Swans made too many mistakes which gave Violet Town more scoring opportunities.
The Swans held strong even when Kirra had to leave the court.
The girls tried hard to hold, but when Michelle also had to leave the court deep in the final term, the lead of eight was too hard to peg back.
