Despite a loss in the top grade it was an overall successful day for the Roos at Tocumwal, winning five matches.April 15, 2014 4:00am
It was another successful round for the Deni Rovers netballers on Saturday, who tackled new Picola and District Netball League rivals Tocumwal.
The Roos’ A grade took on a very rounded Tocumwal team in what turned out to be a one-sided contest, with the home side getting up 43-20.
The girls had a slow start and struggled to get on the scoreboard, however their competitiveness and attitude lifted in the second half and they were able to match their opponents and gain some respectability on the scoreboard.
With some more hard work on the track and more game time playing together, the talented Rovers girls can look forward to a great season.
